Complaint / review text:
I own a barber shop in Whitney, Tx. On 10-27-06 I was talked into signing a lease agreement with Northern Leasing by Tim Laudan who I thought represented Cynergydata. He made an agreement in writing with me that if I wasn't satisfied with "their service" after 3 mos, he would personally assume the lease on the credit card terminal. He now has the machine and he won't return my phone calls.
Northern Leasing calls me up to 4 times a day for non-payment because I closed my account that Cynergydata and Northern Leasing were taking money out of. I foolishly didn't receive copies of the contract I signed until I requested them last week. I never received any monthly statments.
I have filed complaints with the BBB, Tx Attorney General, and FTC. I haven't heard anything back yet. An attorney told me it would be too costly to file a lawsuit, so this Tim Laudan just gets to keep going on his merry way. He is an independent sales rep., he calls it First Bankcard Systems, and possibly one called Express Debt Solutions, LLC. Cynergydata let me file a complaint with them, but Northern Leasing doesn't care about anything but their money on a machine that would date back to 1995 whenever the power went off.
I realize I signed a contract, but I did it with the understanding that Tim Laudan would take responsibilty for what he promised.
