Thanks jaan11963. I called the police. I was able to reach out to the front desk. They are aware of the situation. The front office Lady took my name, phone number and email address and informed me that somebody will contact me shortly

Filed a report with the police. I decided to contact financial services yesterday (on the phone number I took from one of the comments in this forum). They seemed to be aware of the situation!

Jim Gaudry wrote me yesterday and told me he is swamped and for me to call him. I tried his number, and it went straight to VM.

Why at are they trying to send us to Facebook? It seems they are trying to portray a narrative? Have you noticed that? Be very careful because the people involved may be trying to shape the story..

Thank you for all of this information. I've had 4 machines since 2014 with no problems until now. I am following.

Are there any updates from the investigation? I gave my contact information to Toronto Police - Financial Crimes Division 416 808-7300. The front desk told me somebody will contact me or I will receive an email but nothing happened.

I'm curious if anyone has proof ALL these machines actually physically exist?? Not just a few...but all of them.

It's pretty easy to collect $xx,xxx from someone, give them back $100/month (of your own money) to appear legit and recruit new investors though current ones...as soon as your crop is large enough *poof*!

I think you nailed it. I'm certain this is just an elaborate ponzi scheme. Generating fake merchant statements and filtering funds around until the scheme has collapsed. Has anyone tried to confirm the existence of merchants from whom you collect fees from? I would start there, since it will be easy to confirm if the merchant A: Exists and B: is using Debit Directs services.

Debit Direct doesn't show up on any registered ISO list with Visa or Mastercard. It doesn't mean they are not legit, but most processors will register with the 2 largest credit card companies if they are involved with electronic payments.

A lot of conjecture with regard to all of this. Would advise patience for the law to investigate and assign jurisdiction. For those of you with a purchase of 12 or less terminals( with a return) patience even more so. For some of us with invest of 100 plus the situation is more dire. Contact your accountant/tax lawyer/ and police rep after giving them time to properly assess.
