    Organization Name: Your Fitness Genie

    This Company has fraudulent business practices. They charged me over $ 1000 of Bogus fees, I was never told about. I called several times , speaking with supervisors and got fees reduced for one month , just to see more bogus fees a month later. These fees are stated in previous reviews.I should have called my bank over 6 months ago to put a stop payment on them pulling funds out of my account. Don’t waste your time working with Leaders. Notify your bank , then close your account.I am waiting , there will be a class action lawsuit against this company someday. This company SCAMS businesses.

    their representative on the phone never told the truth. there were many additional processing fees and on the third Month they charged me 129. annual fee. never said there was an annual fee. I called and told them to give me the money back. or i was gonna cancel. the next Month I got hit w a 350 cancellation fee. they said it was in my contract which I never got till they emailed it on the day I called. I never signed it. the most deceiving company i ever dealt with. they should be closed down

    Organization Name: Rotary Club of Crystal City-Pentagon

    My Rotary Club has been charged fees that were not shown in the original contract. And worse—there is no one in their customer service who is available to discuss the problem. I have bee on hold for 30-60 minutes before giving up altogether on several occasions. They offer to have you leave your phone number for a call back, but they do not call back. Their recorded message says that they are committed to premiere innovative business solutions. That is not true. At this point I am willing to pay the early termination fee to be free of this organization.

    Organization Name: Redwood Eco Bike Tours

    Leaders is absolutely deceptive. They took out over a $100 a month for no transactions done. Then when we cancelled they took out $350 as a cancellation fee. So over a short period of time they took out over $700 from our account and we never used their services once. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES use them as your merchant services.

    Camilo

    Organization Name: JSC Technologies

    Giving this company 1 star is not what we want to do, they deserve 0 stars!!! This company is comprised of criminals! DO NOT USE THEM! they take money from your account at will for no reason. When you call to find out why the money was removed from your account you get transferred to a hold queue of 20563 minutes! YES that is what the message says while your on hold. They do not return calls or answer emails. Our terminal did not work properly as promised out of the box. We attempted to close the account and that was a living HELL to do. On March 26th 2019 we began our service with them, that day we had trouble, called tech support , emailed our representative with no response at all for over two weeks. As of June 5th 2019 we are still being billed for the Clover app BS! That is an entirely different and other nightmare associated with Leaders Merchant Criminal Services! The worst part is the contract which we never received from them till we closed the account.We are pursuing legal action against these terrible people that work for this criminal organization. DO NOT USE THEM, THERE ARE MUCH BETTER OUT THERE.

    Organization Name: Heraldry & Crests

    They are terrible, my rep. signed me up then no contact after that. I made 3 calls and 3 more emails never answered any of them. Hidden fees, terrible S.C. One of the worst in the industry. A one star is being nice.They tell you $12.95 month for monthly seasonal stop, then bill you another $7.95 of gateway fee?? Then $15.00 more for equipment fee???
