  1. As a previous Satachi customer I can honestly say I’m happy this happened. Scott was a lying little shit, utterly creepy and frankly, reading this article made me think of Scott himself. Stuart is the guy that went to Bartercard and nicked all Scott’s clients. It’s a lock-in deal who takes advantage of small businesses who don’t realise they’re going to get a massive bill. To be honest, I hope Satachi dies a painful death, Scott learns how to actually do business and let Bartercard do their thing. They sound pretty terrible but what do you expect?

    • Hi Dude
      Thanks for your feedback, but it’s borderline for me to publish. For the record, if a crime/injustice is done then I’m happy to expose it. I’m in possession of information that shows discontent with Satachi BUT it is clear to me that Bartercard did what my article says. I’m not so flipant as you about misconduct.

  2. Hello, great article, only wish I’d read it before i had signed up to Batercard.
    It’s been about a year since i became a member, and i really want to cancel my membership. Any advice on doing so?

    I was shocked when i began to realise that whilst paying £50 an month, plus a T£ fee, i didn’t have any business to show for it, and still don’t.

    So far I’ve tried to cancel, but was told that my T£ balance needs to be paid before i can. I agreed to pay this off, only if they got me the business. i refused to pay the membership fee until they did. Subsequently I cancelled my direct debit.

    Still no business, and it’s been a few months now, but due to the high turn over of account managers, i get an intro call each month where i then have to fill them in on what I’m waiting for….the business that was promised.

    The ideology of this system is ridiculous when you break it down, but it’s very appealing when you’re desperate or a start up like i was at the time. I’m now stuck in this clever loophole they have built, and i can’t see a way out.

      One of the good reasons for speaking out about the company and its practices!
      > It’s been about a year since i became a member, and i really want to cancel my membership. Any advice on doing so?
      Yes . . . assess the pros and cons and do what is in your best interest. They do that so you should too!
      Understand that as with any corrupt business built on lies and deception that they will continue to have multiple personnel changes; poor member satisfaction and credibility issues.

      Promises, promises wh? I’ve heard it all before!

      Sounds like you’re onto it

      You sound like you are a problem member to them!

      The principles of Barter and a barter exchange are sound, however you have joined a company that’s ethics are not. In fact they are one of the worst in the industry!

      You will need to go back over the various contracts entered into between you and them, then determine where the breakdowns occurred. Remember that a verbal agreement is legally binding and that if they have failed to perform or have not disclosed all to you then you have a genuine defense if they took you to court.
      All the best on your mission to bring sanity to your life again Page.
