congratulations go out to Jack for taking us from the merchant services of one
of the chartered banks to First Data. They were good on their word to save us
money and convert us over quickly. First Data even waived the initiation fee and
compensated us for the Bank's early termination fee. Their detailed transactions

Well done, Jack and First Data. They were a breeze to deal
with...quick and easy!
