I acquired the services of investment broker agent Gayle Davis (Patton Mona Davis) owners of Preferred Global Funding based in Ft. Worth, Texas-USA, after she contacted me and informed me that investors were interested in wanting to fund my businesses. She informed me the investors wanted to remain anonymous and therefore would be the intermediary between (myself)entrepreneur & investor(s). I was assured by PGF that the funds were readily available, and guaranteed upon receipt of the Funding Agreement signed, and her brokerage fee of $2500.00 USD paid. Funding was supposed to begin immediately--within the 90 day time frame. There was interaction initially from PGF and then somewhat thereafter, until I kept inquiring pertaining to the allocated receipt of funds for my businesses. Other business ventures kept me distracted without realizing it had been almost up to a year gone by without receiving any contact from her. I came across a website called RipOff Report.com --Search: Preferred Global Funding -- which I was surprised to find out that there were other complaints toward her as well. I forwarded a letter to her 12/08/09 for a request for refund, and again on 12/10/09 to no avail. I also contacted a law firm in Ft. Worth, Texas to help in the remittance of my $2500.00 USD but she seems to have vanished. According to RipOff Report.com; she is also based in California and uses many alias names or have family, friends, etc... . assisting her. I am quite sure she lives in Ft. Worth, Texas as she herself has stated in her response on the RipOff Report.com website. Prior to forwarding any monies to PGF; I thought I had verified a good background check, but; now I know that PGF has and uses legal registering bases (U.S. banks, post office boxes, Secretary of State-Texas, etc...) for confirmation of its business, whereas; also using investment networks to lure entrepreneurs, investors, etc... to its fraudulent schemes.
