Credit Card Processing Company Rejects Firearms Industry

This article is posted on the National Shooting Sport's Foundation's

January 7, 2007


REFUSES TO PROCESS TRANSACTIONS . . . Citi Merchant Services and First Data Corp. are refusing to process any credit card transactions between federally licensed firearms retailers, distributors and manufacturers -- a move which will severely limit available inventory of firearms and ammunition to military, law enforcement and law-abiding Americans.

The first company to be affected by this decision appears to be firearms distributor CDNN Sports Inc.

"We were contacted recently by First Data/Citi Merchant Services by a June Rivera-Mantilla stating that we were terminated and funds were being seized for selling firearms in a non-face-to-face transaction," said Charlie Crawford, president of CDNN Sports Inc. "Although perfectly legal, we were also informed that no transactions would be processed in the future, even for non-firearms. I find this very frightening."

To voice your concern to Citi Merchant Services and First Data Corp., please contact June Rivera-Mantilla at 631-683-7734 or her supervisor Robert Tenenbaum at 631-683-6570.

To change to an NSSF-affiliated credit card processing program, contact Payment Alliance International at 1-866-371-2273 (ext. 1131).

Seems like I read something a few years back about citi-group being anti-gun. I think It was on the "black list" anti-gun buisness. Anyhow, My 401K plan at work is through CITI-Group. I have no choice on the deal, because my company has a good match program.

So I just thought I would say, they would be really angry with me if they knew I took out a loan 3 months ago out of my 401k to build a GUN!!! Thanks Citi-group for helping me build my gun!

Citicorp Refuses to Process Firearms Transactions

Yep I just found out today and have to change my credit card account before 1/28 which is their deadline.

Kind of scarry in a world that is getting away from cash transations when a company can prevent me from legally purchasing a rifle.

A toll free number to voice your opinion is 888-766-2484. This is the 24 hour customer service number on the back of my Credit card that I called to confirm the problem I was having.
