AEF SUES ONLINE PAYMENT COMPANY
The Alameda Education Foundation has sued its online payment processing firm, claiming the company has failed to forward roughly $40,000 in parent payments for the foundation’s after-school enrichment programs.
The non-profit sued the Count Me In Corporation Tuesday in Alameda County Superior Court.
According to the complaint, AEF hired Count Me In in March 2006 to provide an online payment and registration service for its after-school enrichment programs. But they said that as of October, the company had failed to forward more than $81,000 in payments.
The company agreed to send the payments under an installment plan, but it missed its November 21 payment, the suit says. AEF requested the money but hasn’t got it, the complaint says.
The non-profit is asking the court for $40,000 plus interest and damages.
