Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

In November of 2008 my business partner and I signed a commitment letter with Hunter Funding and its agent, Andy Perizek of HK & Associates, for a 1,000,000 dollar credit line to rehab properties.  We were told that all we needed to do is put $30k into an escrow account to secure the line of credit.  This was our refundable deposit, the money was to remain in the escrow account, it didn't...  We were told that the line of credit would fund within 90 days of the deposit.  After the LOC didn't fund we were given many excuses as to why the line didn't fund.  Mostly the third party investor or the holding company was creating the delay and that it should fund within two to three weeks. 

We are coming up on a year and I spoke with John hunter and he said that the money was with the holding company it is gone. 

Do not invest with this company, its agents or affiliates because it is a scam.  I am preparing to sue all parties.  If you have a similar situation please contact me.  I'm contacting the authorities in hopes to get my money back and to have any illegal dealings handled accordingly.

I want to go after them


I would love nothing more than a meeting with others who have been scammed.  I just have no idea how to get everyone together.  I have mailed the editor of this site a few times to get contact info.  If there is a way to share this info and set something up please let me know. I will make a post on craigslist under Biz opp with the title scammed by hunterfunding.  Please replay to that if it is not taken off of here.

Go after pete keiner and greg holst legally

AUTHOR: MNConcerned - (United States of America)

these people have several business's over the last few years basically taking others money.  the only way to get back is to use the law.  i have already talked to the FBI.  unfortunately you need to show this was deliberate and planned.  I have several times contacted others off of here.  but none seem to have the nads to move on this.
i can set a meeting so everyone can put this together.  easily the stories on here together are a criminal charge if true.

It is so very obvious that you are writing the rebuttal to my complaint by the continuous grammatical errors in your writing.  After you get out of jail you should enroll into to school and educate yourself.

First of all, you introduced yourself as an employee of HK and Hunter.  In fact you said that you and hunter keep an office in the Carlson Towers.  I have provided my request for funds and thirty business days have passed.  I guess its time to go after you, Pete, and Hunter.  I hope that money has done wonders for all of you...

The Correct Information to the general public

AUTHOR: Nate2 - (USA)

Andy Perizek is not an employee nor ever has been an employee of HK and Associates or The Hunter Funding Group. Andy Perizek has no working relationship with either company nor has ever been employed by these companies. Andy Perizek has reffered clients in need of financing to HK and Hunter and these clients could not obtain standard financing from there local lending sources for there projects. Now he is caught up in the non performance of Hunter due to reffering clientel to this company for financing. All clients are in contract with the Hunter Funding Group and only The Hunter Funding Group. Hunter has received and retained any and all up front money that any client may have given forth. Mr Perizek was informed by The Hunter Funding Group that all deposits will be held in the holdings or escrow company of Hunter. Their for Mr Perizek passed this information on to any interested client that wanted to move forward in entering into contract with The Hunter Funding Group. All information given to any client by Andy Perizek has come direct from The Hunter Funding Group. Please be aware general public these reports are valid and true that any money requested back from Hunter has not been returned to the clients that have posted this report. But also be aware that they are in contract with Hunter and no one else. Hunter has been in breech of contract with many of its clients and claims any monies given to them was placed into a Holdings Company located in California. This so called holdings company is in breech of contract with Hunter resulting in the failure to perform back to there clients. General public please be aware that Andy Perizek has not taken any money form any client personally in any way and was relaying the information retained from Hunter. All clients have written checks to HK and Associates. From there HK has sent all monies to Hunter located in Arizona. Do not invest with this company. Andy Perizek has pursued action against The Hunter Funding Group in favor of any clients that he knows of for non performance and false information that was brought forth to the clients in this report. Any and all efforts will be brought forth to satisfy these claims.
