A local payroll service has temporarily shut-down in the face of complaints from all across the nation. 
According to Rome Police, clients of Data Processing Services on East Seventh St. in Rome have been calling local law enforcement since Wednesday, claiming the company has failed to directly deposit checks into their clients’ accounts. Authorities say those calls have been coming since Wednesday from several states including Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Texas. 
The company, which has been in business for over 30 years, has locked its doors, their voicemail stating they’re not processing files currently as their server is offline. 
Though not a formal investigation, the Rome division of the FBI is looking into the allegations.
