Complaint / review text:
Merchant Lynx was the company I though I was signing a contract with. It was not until I started seeing all these extra fees being withdrawn from my business acct. From an unknown company. When I called Merchant Lynx about the withdraws, this is when they told me it was from First Data Global Leasing and it was never revealed to me by my Salesman, Matt Mills about another company involved in this contract. Furthermore, my salesman gave me his business card with a corporate number out of Atlanta Ga. When I tried to get in touch with him through corporate, they would not give me his direct number nor would they pass on a message to him. That my folks is very suspicious. Once I had gotten the number for First Data, the representative name Arlene told me that I had signed a non cancellation contract and that I was bonded to this lease. I told them that Merchant Lynx misrepresented them by not mentioning First Data on the contract nor did the salesman speak of First Data Global as the leasing company for the machine. This is fraud and the contract should be null and void. Since May of 2007 of my signing of the contract, I have had several bottom feeders "debt collectors" trying to get money from me. I don't even owe them money, I sent their machine back on February 2008 certified, signed receipt. To Date I now have a district court date with a Bottom Feeder. With all my data against First Data Global and Merchant Lynx, I am hoping that the District Court Judge will see what scammers these companies are and not give them anything. As I read all the complaints about this company, I see that it is similar to most complaints. My question is why Merchant Lynx and First Data still in business scamming small businesses? Why aren't the Feds going after them. They need to be stopped, they are hurting a lot of businesses and getting away with it.
