We met with Rob prior to reading his many reports online for his bad business practices. He contacted us through a investment website that we posted on looking for hard money investors to open a restaurant in Asheville, NC.
We had a good feeling from Rob after our meeting with him at our new business establishment, where he told us that this was an easy deal to work up and that he has many investors that would be interested... In his words, He would have us a check in 10 days.
He offered us many of his other services including his non-licensed legal services concerning a law suit we have pending against an old business associate. He said he could do it for a small fee and travel money so he could do a surprise visit to the home of the party we are suing and use "strong arm" tactics to get a settlement.
We gave him a check for $500 to do a business evaluation for us so we would find the best investors for our business.
Upon one of the first phone calls after our meeting, we were told that our business plan was beautiful and had no holes in it and he had 25 investors interested in our business. After my phone call with him today 7/31/2008
He told me that our business plan was unfavorable because of the economy and that non of his investors want to touch it.
His communication was poor and he became very rude in emails after we made numerous phone calls to his office looking for him. He seems to be a scam artist from what we have been reading on this site and others and has his business registered to his wife Stephanie... probably again, to cover his butt.
We let him know that we read his reports and didn't expect to hear back from him again and he wished us well. He got $500 dollars out of us, but had the potential to make a lot more... its a shame.
I'm sure he will respond to this report as he has done with others and defend himself and skirt around the issues... I wish you well Rob
