Sept '07, I contacted GCR Capital about loan for a truck and trailer I was wanting to purchase for my business. I talked to Cory Lockert in the beginning, provided the information for a credit check. It came back clean and per Lockert, I was approved for the funds needed to purchase both items.

Cory Lockerts next call to me was informing me that I needed to pay $2000.00 to "secure the funds" which was a guarantee to the investors that I was going to accept the loan and go forward. I questioned that for 2 weeks, then unfortunately I believed Lockert and allowed them to draft the money. The next call I receive was informing me that my "LEASE DOCUMENTS" would arrive in the next week or so.

I called Cory Lockert only to learn that I could no longer talk to him b/c my file had been moved on to the next SCAM ARTIST Leonard (Lenny) Freeman. I informed Freeman that I do not want to lease anything, I wanted a LOAN. He didnt really do anything, he only passed my file to Lissette Arias. She gave me the run around for many weeks. I picked out 2 different trucks only to lose both of them b/c the dealership sold them out from under me while waiting on GCR Capital to fund the money.

Finally, I requested to talk to someone in upper Mgmt. and thats when Mr. Personallity himself John Grant got involved. I expressed my concern to him that I was convienced that they had no intention of funding any vehicle for me and that they were nothing more than a scam. He talked to me as though I was a complete idiot (which looking back I must have been) and offered to "educate" me on how this "lease/loan" process works.

I contemplated for awhile on whether or not to proceed forward since John Grant had made it clear that I would NOT get my money back. I decided to move forward. I questioned him about the lease and what can I do to break the lease if the trucking business doesn't work out. He advised me to file bankruptcy.

A few days go by and I was informed by the SCAM ARTIST to pick out another truck. I did, then I received the contract for this "LEASE" and it only had enough money to cover the truck not the trailer too. I called John Grant back, to learn that they couldn't provide the money for both ( had they told me that in the beginning, they would have never drafted any money from my account) which in the long run I had to get a "REAL LOAN" for the trailer which meant more money out of pocket for a "REAL DOWN PAYMENT".

After 2 1/2 months of dealing with GCR Capital, I got the truck and trailer and soon learned that I was locked into a lease with another company called PAWNEE LEASING which is a scam also. Look that company up on Ripoff Report. Stay away from them as well b/c now I'm attempting to get out of the lease and I'll update the report on them as time goes by.

I can't believe these people are still scamming people...this shows how serious the system is!

AUTHOR: Dercilio - (U.S.A.)

Judy diVicenzo and John Grant should be in jail but the "system" protects scammers like these people. I woud like to say that we are some good examples that you can get your money back. Do not let them live the good life, in mansions by the beach, driving german cars and dining at expensive restaurants...fight back and make them pay. They have only the $395 processing fee to divide ...
