Merchant account

Recently I closed a retail store. I sent the company I had my merchant account with a letter telling them I'd closed the store and asked them what they'd prefer I do.

Well, I expected some sort of communication telling me to pay X amount of dollars to pay off the lease and to send the credit card machine to X address.

Instead, them honyockers sent me a threatening letter. WTF? Now, I'm pissed. I realize my legal and contractual obligations and was trying to satisfy them. I can't wait for their offices to open.

Do you have some kind of monthly obligation to them as far as how many transactions you are required to do? If not then it just sits idle.

I got mine through Capitol One and there is absolutely no fees (other than the percentage of the sale of course) and no requirements.

I have a contract with them for a flat rate fee for 4 years (starting date was around the opening of said business).

I talked to a nice guy in NY as the feller who wrote the letter doesn't take phone calls. The guy I was talking to was howling with laughter as I described the guy who wrote the letter as a lilly white, pencil necked pansy desk jockey who hid behind a keyboard and wasn't man enough to talk to folks he wrote to. Said I described him perfectly.

Anyway, all is good. I'm going to pay the contract and send them their machine. It's what I intended to do. I don't burn folks. But man, that letter threatening legal action smoothe pissed me off.

Check cashing, Western Union, pay for Visa cards and cell phones, though I wore my Kimber on my belt every day. Does that count?

Man, I can only hope your shop was 'nicer' than the one I just did some work for.

Their network was borked after a T-storm here, and what I found to rebuild was one of the most spaghetti wrapped, duct taped, maze built, mind numbing collections of mis-matched gear and crap - I'm still in shock.

But, I got it working again

You really don't know how anal I am. Actually, it's self preservation. If it's not neat and in place, the same place everytime, I'll never find it again.

Grif, how close is the location of the said "lily white...etc" keyboard operator to CCR? I'm wondering if a few hundred of your closest friends showed up he might feel intimidated like he tried to do to you?

He's in New York City.

I can see the headlines now:

Power Rangers on Sewing Machines Descend on NY!

Dateline Aug. 29

NY City was mysteriously attacked today by over 300 strangely garbed men on powerful and silent machines. They whispered in and swooshed out with one, screaming, lilly white, pencil necked desk jockey bound, tied and what was referred to as, "riding bitch".

"They would have made a clean getaway", said a NY Police Detective, "except we captured one when his machine started making a strange grinding noise from the rear while oozing a foul, smelly fluid".

Several other were apprehended at a Starbucks and three were surrounded when they stopped at a firestation to have some strange IBA form witnessed. One dazed and sleep deprived captive kept babbling about being on some sort of RTE. Cryptologists have vowed to work into the night, if need be.

The mayor has expressed his outrage against this nefarious and diablolical invasion, declared martial law and had the local National Guard chase them to the NY State Border, where a demented broadcast was picked up on an FRS channel. It went somethang like this, "Throttle up boys, we have a convoy to the Reunion". This strange group was last seen going WFO down the slab with a psychodelic purple, VW microbus full of long haired friends of Jesus in tow.

An anonymous tipster has led State Police to put every BBQ restaurant under surveillance and to search places known as "tweestees".

All citizens are urged to be cautious as these folks are rumoured to be carrying weapons like the Thomas with a coiled extension under their rear seats. They are also said to be able to throw out blinding light and posses a strange cacophony of different types of music emanating from each machine in a confusing manner.

Be very wary of confronting, discoursing or conversing with this group, as their long diatribes on oil and tires have been known to drive the most sane of men smoothe over the cliff; lemming as it may be.

Crimestoppers hasn't issued an award, because nobody is really sure if NY City wants their pencil necked, lilly white desk jockey back.
