Processor is Sued by Merchant over $28,000

I was not surprised to learn that EVO Merchant Services was sued by a plumbing business:


 GALVESTON – Parker & Pompa Inc. has filed suit against EVO Merchant Services LLC, Discovery Bank, Discover Financial Services and Do It Best Corp. in an effort to recover nearly $30,000 in back credit card payments. Recent court papers filed Oct. 8 in Galveston County Court at Law No. 2 explain that the defendants failed to remit $28,490.97 generated from Discover Card charges from the plaintiff’s customers from Oct. 7, 2008, through April 9, 2009. The suit shows the complainant, doing business as Ideal Plumbing Co., entered into a contract with EVO, doing business as Bank Card Depot Inc., which called on the former to submit information pertaining to Discover Card charges made in Galveston County during the special time period. In turn, according to the agreement, EVO promised to acquire and process the charges. Meanwhile, the plaintiff and Do It Best executed a contract to which the latter agreed to accept the funds released from the proceeds in question and place them in an account attributed to the complainant as well as disburse and forward the subject money to the former. EVO received written statements itemizing the dates and amounts of the aforementioned charges and forwarded the documentation to Discover Bank and Discover Financial Services, which supposedly processed the information and gave the amount in dispute to Do It Best, the suit states. Parker & Pompa alleges it did not get the $28,490.97, insisting the defendants “have failed and refused, and continue to fail and refuse” to pay. Attorney Michael L. Wilson with Rider & Wilson in Galveston is representing the complainant, and Galveston County Court at Law No. 2 Judge Barbara Roberts is presiding over the case. Cause No. 68,458


Evo has many complaints listed against it. I happen to know they have some of the most corrupt practices
when it comes to hidden fees and padding their pockets.
