Type of a scam Credit Cards
Scammer contacted us saying he was with the company that we use to process credit card transactions for our business. He stated that we had been overcharged by Visa and MasterCard for all transactions over the last 6 months. He said they were going to rectify the charges by giving us a lower rate on our credit card transactions through the business. He sent a form to be filled out which included Social Security numbers and dates of birth. We called our credit card machine company and found out he was not affiliated with them. He was either trying to get our personal information, or trying to get our credit card machine transactions to switch over to his company.
He went by Richard Price. His "Company" was Merchant Service SW. His website of www.merchantsvcinc.com does not exist.
When we called him and told him we knew he wasn’t affiliated with our credit card company, he hung up on us.
Steer clear of this scam. Good luck.
