Complaint / review text:
Two years ago, we were scammed into leasing a Talento credit card machine from Northern Leasing Systems. Richard Androlevich of Global Processing Services (Lake Butler, FL), a local representative for Northern Leasing, estimated that our credit card processing services (including the machine rental) would cost $70 per month.
When we received our first bill, it was almost triple that amount. Of course, Mr. Androlevich was no where to be found when it came to rectifying our complaints. The processing company cancelled our agreement immediately, and I tried in vain to get Northern Leasing Systems to rescind the lease.
After written communication with Northern Leasing, I called their customer service number in New York City and was told that my credit rating would be severely damaged if I stopped payment on the lease as I was the "personal guarantor". We have been paying for a credit card machine for two years that we do not use or want. This company preys on small businesses and must be stopped. What a nightmare.
