I got an email from Client (Simon Properties) on Friday saying they cannot issue me a check because the payment was satisfied, and amex has the money. In addition, I was charged 1599.22 for the transaction fee for amex.
My merchant account was with Intuit not Amex. I didn't speak with amex because Intuit was the one that charged my account on 8/20. Nothing in writing just an email from Intuit that it was returned. Payment was for work performed in April. Client has no reason to cause problems as I am currently doing a considerable amount of work for them that they are very happy with.
I hope this helps! My goal is to provide you with excellent and accurate service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me "excellent" when you are done. I look forward to assisting you in the future, should you have legal questions.
