Jonathan Cross and Nelson Shapiro, the 2 directors of Blackpool Group misrepresented their company saying they managed a $250 million fund interested in investing $5 million into a smaller Hedge Fund which was to be formed and started by them for me to use in my real estate business. They asked me to pay $25,000 in upfront fees to prepare the documents and form the entities.

The agreement with Blackpool was to provide the fund with $5 million by June 23rd 2013 or return the $25,000. After repeated lies about the delayed funds they were not able to perform and have not returned the $25,000 as per their agreement. They are now not responding to any correspondence.

They have also scammed 2 other businesses and all details of their other scams can be obtained from S&Z Fund Services, 145 PInelawn Rd, Suite 200, Melville NY 11747. Tel 631.368.3110

Blackpool lawsuit

AUTHOR: Alternate Capital - ()

  1.  

Blackpool directors continue to lie and to try to deceive. The lawsuit they have filed against us to avoid paying monies owed to us is technically faulty and without merit, it is an ill disguised attempt to cover up a scam. We have a counter claim for over half a million dollars against Blackpool (see link below)iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/DocumentDisplayServlet?documentId=F/0VY6EMeyruXsLF6ENvAw==&system=prod

Both Cross and Shapiro are being sought by other companies who want to file suit against them and they cannot be found to be served the suit. Their Blackpool office in New York is a virtual office and they do not go there. These guys know what they are doing to get your money.

BlackPool Group Files Suit Against Guy Prudhomme and Alternate Capital

AUTHOR: Administration - ()

Updating BlackPool’s July 11th rebuttal of Mr. Prudhomme’s inaccurate, misleading and malicious claim: 

As Mr. Prudhomme has continued and elevated his slanderous cyber-attack, yesterday, BlackPool filed suit in New York against Mr. Prudhomme and his company, Alternate Capital. (see link)

Blackpool avoidance tactics

AUTHOR: Alternate Capital - ()

Blackpool intends to use litigation to avoid paying the fee it owes to Alternate Capital. All information posted by Alternate Capital is factual and supported by documents. There are other companies who have suffered the same fate at Blackpool's hands.

#4 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Mr. Prudhomme’s Claim is Entirely Inaccurate, Misleading and Malicious.

AUTHOR: Administration - ()

 

Mr. Prudhomme’s claim is entirely inaccurate, misleading and malicious.

With various simple solutions to the issue at hand, Mr. Prudhomme elected this venue to seek to recapture monies he felt he was due. Monies our firm, while probably not contractually obligated, notified Mr. Prudhomme would be paid.

However, unbeknownst to us, by the third business day following notification of his desire to terminate the agreement, Mr. Prudhomme had already begun his smear campaign tantamount to extortion.

Unfortunately, this is no longer a matter of a termination fee, we now find ourselves in the position of having to defend our personal and professional reputations, and having to ask the courts to settle the matter.
