First Data - Unfair trade practices

United card solutions deceived me into signing this long term lease saying it was a fee they charge to help cover the 1% processing fee, it turns out it's a 48 month non cancelable lease and they hold your credit report hostage, I will end up paying $8000 for $800 worth of equipment, it's a shame that companies have to do business this way. Question, how to get out of this?

I signed up with a company out of Arizona by two men who sat in my home in Ohio and pretended to work in Ohio. I explained I did not need a card terminal, just online card processing. After all the paperwork was signed they called the next day to say they forgot to get...
