Oregon BBB: Online shopping draws top complaints

PORTLAND, Ore. -

Credit card processing service Securus Payments of Portland is ringing up a pattern of complaints for sales practices and contract issues, the Better Business Bureau warned Tuesday.

The company, which also goes by Payprotec Oregon LLC, has an “F” rating with the Better Business Bureau as a result of 53 complaints within BBB’s three-year reporting period, 19 of which were left unanswered or unresolved.

Complainants from across the country describe false sales presentation promises, the organization said. In some cases, unexpected rates or fees occur after sign up and cancellation charges are not disclosed upfront.

Business owners who deny services and ask to be removed from contact lists say that Securus Payments continues to call; while those with complaints and cancellations claim that the company is difficult to reach.

Watch out for merchant processors that promise substantial savings and switch services without contracts, warns BBB serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington. Before buying, review the following articles:
