Update 2/8/19: The SecureChoice Merchant Services website (securechoicems.com) is no longer active and has disappeared from search results. Given the fact that the company was acquired by BlueSquare Resolutions in 2014, it seems likely that SecureChoice has been retired as an independent brand. If you have any information about the current state of SecureChoice Merchant Services (including any alternate business names or rebrandings), please share that information in the comment section of this review.
SecureChoice Merchant Services is a merchant account provider headquartered in Holladay, Utah. The company was founded in 2012 according to the Better Business Bureau and was subsequently acquired by BlueSquare Resolutions in March 2014. Despite the fact that it is owned by BlueSquare, the company appears to still conduct business under the SecureChoice name. SecureChoice (sometimes spelled “Secure Choice Merchant Services”) offers debit and credit card processing through First Data, credit card terminals, loyalty programs, e-commerce solutions, payroll services, mobile processing, and sales analytics for merchants.
There is strong evidence to suggest that the owner and president of SecureChoice, Cameron Montgomery, was named as the defendant in a February 2009 lawsuit filed by a business training and education company called Video Professor, Inc. The lawsuit alleged that Cameron Montgomery was the registrant and owner of a website called “Ripoff-Review.org” that listed a falsified negative review from a non-existent customer of Video Professor named “Dr. William J. Tomlin.” The lawsuit also alleged that Cameron Montgomery advertised against the Video Professor trademark with this falsified review in order to direct visitors to competing companies owned by Cameron Montgomery. Cameron Montgomery is the owner of two online business training companies called Vanuity, LLC and Horizon Learning, LLC. Video Professor’s complaint contended that Cameron Montgomery authored the fake review and that the webpage containing the review constituted false advertising (among other violations). This suit was settled in March 2009.
