OMEGA Processing Solutions merchants have reported receiving a “TERMINAL UPGRADE REQUEST FORM” in the mail. While this might appear to be a valid equipment upgrade offer, it is NOT.
In very small print at the bottom of the form is the following language:
“Northern Payment Systems, Inc. does not represent your current provider and is not part of or affiliated with any government program. This is a solution to become your third party merchant service provider and to process all your electronic payments in one device.”
This is an attempt from an unscrupulous competitor to trick you into switching your merchant services provider. In this case, the mailer came from “Northern Payment Systems, Inc.,” but there might be other outfits attempting the same scam.
If you receive any notice of this sort, please contact OMEGA Processing’s customer service department at 866.888.9724 Ext. 7. Thank you for helping us to stop his sort of merchant fraud attempt.
