American Terminal Complaint - American Terminal Fraud
YERMO, CALIFORNIA -- As a consumer from your state, I felt it was my responsibility to bring to your attention the following incident.
American Terminal ran local tv ads ststing they had a 'turnkey' job for you. It shows an older guy opening up a terminal and removing a wad of money.
When you call they promise the moon. You will always have someone with you. You can have experts for a fee locate just the right place for. People will set-up your machines, you sign for them then just keep them clean and remove the money.
I chose the expert to set up my machines.I supplied the names and addresses, and phone numbers to four places I wanted to place one of two terminals. This expert was paid $600.00 per machine to get a signed contract with these places so I could place a machine there. Finally he said he had permission. I ask for the contracts, and he said he didn't care about contracts just send the rest of the money (another $600.00) His name is: Ron Elfano at 909-371-0304
In the mean time I try to follow the instrustions sent with the Machine. It says to fill out a credit app. for a company called Intercept. To talk with a Mr. Chapwick. This I do. Mr. chapwick approves me and calls the company. They call me telling me I called the wrong place. I must call a place in Tx. So I do. We talk for a few days,and she tells me to send money for programs and such. Then she says I have the wrong place. Call another number. So I call. They promise to send an info package that never comes.
So I recall the second company again. She says she will call them. I wait, I wait. Finally I say enough is enough. The write to the corporate Addres
American Terminal Corp LLC 20801 Biscayne Blvd. Suite 307 Aventura, Floride 33180-1430 Tel: 786-279-1400
The letter is returned unopen with the foolowing on it: unable to forward.
As a resolution, I would like the following:
I wish for you to stop American Terminal from selling in Calif. To make them add honesty to their tv ad. Make Mr. Ron Elfano return the $600.00 advance for a job he didn't do. Last have American Terminal pick-up their machines after returning my money($22,430.00)
