Additional Notes

Complaint: I have been trying to cancel our contact with Payment Alliance for over 6 months now. Back in September 2013, I contacted Payment Alliance to inform them that we would be canceling our contract with them early. They informed us that we needed to complete a cancellation form and there would be a $475.00 early cancellation fee. We understood and requested the form. Completed the form and Payment Alliance gave us three options to return the form (e-mail, fax, or mail). I attempted to e-mail the form twice and it was returned twice. I called Payment Alliance to confirm the e-mail address on the form they sent to us and they told me I was correct and I must have been entering the address in incorrectly. I attempted to e-mail it again with no luck. So I then faxed and mailed the form into Payment Alliance. No response from Payment Alliance at all and we continued to be charged the monthly service fees. Our contract is up this May with Payment Alliance and called them to let them know I have been trying to cancel with policy with them and since they failed to do so by this point, our contract period is up and we will not be renewing our agreement with them. I spoke with a ****** she was very nice and told me that the sales department would have to call me back about getting the cancellation form to me and they should be calling me by Friday (5-16-14) and that the department was really good about calling people back. Still have yet to get a call back from Payment Alliance. I am getting the run around with Payment Alliance. I feel like they are going everything in their power to avoid my attempts to not renew the agreement so that they may continue to charge us monthly service fees.

Desired Settlement: Our contract is up with Payment Alliance. Because the contact was not terminated early because they failed to process our early termination request, we are not to be charge the early termination fee and end our agreement with Payment Alliance and stop charging us service charges.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/05/30) */ Contact Name and Title: ***** *********-President Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: ****** Our Customers and their care are very important to us. In an effort to understand what could have happened we have researched this situation in detail. We looked for any correspondence during Sept/Oct of 2013 via email, fax or phone. We did not find anything. Our records show last contact was on 9/20/2012 when we delivered new equipment and prior to that 6/20/2011 when we redelivered equipment that had been repaired. We are truly sorry if anything was overlooked by us. We received notice that the customer wanted to close their account on May 15th. We called the customer on May 16th and have verified this call with our phone records, it was made at 10a.m. lasting 1 minute as we had to leave a message. We were surprised to hear that no message was received, but when we did find out, we reached out immediately and sent our customer the documents needed to close the account. We have since received and submitted the completed documents and received confirmation # XXXXX that the account has been closed.
