I set up my account with a nice salesman named Terence Gumbs, who called me about 8 times a day begging for my business with false pomises of a 1.50%, rate, he told me that would be the only rate I would pay for my business, little did I know that when I had recieved my 1st. statement, he had placed me on what's called an enhanced bill back, to which my rates were really over 3.00%, when I called to speak to Terence about this, he never returned my calls, shocker.. from calling me 8 times a day to never returning my phone calls. When I decided to cancel my account because I as being charged up the waaazooo, I was hit with a $500 early termination fee, to which my contract that I signed with Terence only stated $250. Here is the doozy.. I got a call from a Yvonne Wright, who claimed to be the underwriting manager & said she wanted to help my situation, & told me to sign some paperwork which included a free terminal, free paper, and a reduction of rates, to which the following month, I was charged $120 for a terminal lease which I never signed up for. When I got the paperwork in the mail, I realized my name had been forged and I was locked in for a 5 year terminal lease which could not be cancelled. After many phone calls with the BBB, lawyers, & the state department, I decided to go to the location located in Long Island City to confront the salesmen Terence & Yvonne after over $2,000 was already charged to my account. When I got to the business, I asked for Terence Gumbs, when I met him, I told him who I was & he told me he would be right back, he was going to go and grab my file... He never came back, I saw Terence slip out the back door, run down the hallway, trip on the floor over his baggy pants & run down the stairs, leaving a trail of paperwork all over the floor. I started to huff & puff when Yvonne Wright came up to me asking how she could help me, she smelled like alcohol, and was stumbling like a drunk, she was wearing open toe slippers with orange nail polish, her eyes were glassy and dialated and the obvious weave she was wearing was slipping off her head. After experiencing all of this, I had decided to call the police, when the police came, the current owner Leo aka Levan Vartonov came over and had my account cancelled and issued me a check for the full refund. After I went home, I did some research and found out the following... Statewide Merchant, Mercant Industry, & National E-Payments are all part of the same company. The owner Leo Vartonov aka Levan Vartonov is the owner of over 20 T-Mobile Stores and was arrested for some type of cell phone fraud.. here is the link below... Another owner of National E-Payments Clark Krimer was arrested and charged with prostitution here is the link below.. Please check scam report to follow up on the following companies linked to Statewide Merchants, & be careful.
