    I received 4 calls in one day from a very rude telemarketer. My immediate supervisor requires that all of his calls be announced to him with the name of the person calling and the company they represent. When I asked the telemarketer what company he’s with he got ugly and told me he didn’t have time for this bullshit and he would just call another company. I sure hope he makes good on his promise to stop calling here. My oh my telemarketers are getting awfully ballsy these days, but I guess you need to be a certain type of scumbag to qualify for the job.

    This is a very bad company for years they have been overcharging us on credit card charges.

    We use them as our credit card processing company for 7 years until we found out they were robbing us. When we tied to cancelled they wanted to inforce a contract that was 7 years old saying it renewed each year.

    Save your self a lot of money and headache and don’t do buisness with this pirate company.

    The do not do next day deposit. Customer service said that we were not eligible..was never told why. They have called our customers/clients to questions why we were charging them, was very embarrassing because we have been working with most in many years.

    They are the WORST Company we have worked with. The previous companies provide next day deposit and our customers/clients were never called to confirm the amount we had charged.

    They have promised all what we were getting; next day deposit, automatic charges and more. We have received services explained above.

      Yes, I did initially sign a contract with one of their sales people mostly because she actually cried in my office regarding the difficulty of earning a living. It was my impression that I had three working days to rescind the contract. I signed on a Friday which was unfortunate for me because I couldn’t find anyone to help over the weekend. Consequently every month they deduct money from my bank account for a service that I don’t use. I will contact the BBB but I doubt that it will help. Incidentally the sales rep was unprofessional in spite of her attentiveness. My rating would be a minus 0

        RUN FROM THIS COMPANY IF ANY REPS CALL OR SHOW UP. Representative lied and said a number of fees would be waived but they were not and cancellation fee is high. I would rate them -10 if I could. I would consider company to be highly fraudulent

          Appstar Financials telemarketer called my company. I have never been spoken to so rudely. I am a women with a successful termite and pest control company. The sales person swore he was not selling anything and wanted to speak to the owner. He had the owners name as Tan Jah I have gotten junk mail with this name on it. I told him there is no Tan Jah here and I laughed. Then I asked him what are you selling? He got snappy with me replied again that he was not selling anything so I hung up on him. He called me back and blasted me for being a rude bitch for hanging up on him. He then said I can’t believe your still in business then hung up on me. I can’t believe that a telemarketer would call back and use such language. This company has stooped pretty low to hire and not monitor their telemarketers and or Telemarketer company. I will now post this on all the review websites as I was unable to call back the telemarketing center to complain about this person. Thank you for your time.

                So far I haven’t received any paperwork, just a phone call (and a follow-up call) from defendant.

                      AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL!!!!!!!
                      These people are Crooks!! Stay away from them at all costs. I realized I have been overcharged for the last 5 years. I cancelled service and they stole $1000 by ACH from my account under a different name after I stopped payment! It was called “Merimac” a “branch” of the same bank. The people I spoke to about this were RUDE and disgusting. They are very well trained to be nasty and blame the client by saying “you didn’t read your contract” …..the 5 page small print legalese from years ago. She flat out told me that they have too many customers to service and help them, and they don’t care if their clients are needing assistance. NEVER use this company, they set this up on purpose to screw their clients who leave. I moved to Heartland and they have an attorney who specializes is this scam. I will fight this with everything I have.

                        I know this comment is a year late! But, my experience with AppStar borders on almost illegal. The sale rep REFUSED to give me rate quotes about credit card processing. Unless I signed their contract, they would not tell me any prices. They guaranteed to be the lowest and told me out and out, they DID NOT want me to shop around for prices. After going around and around about this, I agreed to sign their contract because they would buy me out of my old contract. I told them right from the start I needed a very high credit limit and I was only approved for 1/2 the amount and had to turn over more personal banking information to get the credit amount increased. Also, to get refunded for the buyout, I would have to summit undefined paper work and proof of payment. My current credit card processor did beat the AppStar rates and I refused the credit card machine. I have not set up the service, have no machine and get endless harassing phone calls from them, bullying me about refusing the machine and fulfilling the contract. I have given them no money, have not taken their machine, but they have my bank account numbers and are threating to put a black mark on my credit.
