 Please do not release any funds to Diverse Capital Markets, Mr Rudy or Rudolph Harvat for a funding solution.

Please read the email below I recieved on Jun 7th 2013 for Mr Harvat when we were actively searching for an investment of 250,000 in exchange for company stock in order to begin production.

Good Morning Jeff,

We brought this to our investor and I originally tried to sell it at .05 Cents a share, they wanted a ½ Cent a share, and after me beating them up, so to speak, we agreed on .02 Cents a share. So they proposed a stock purchase of 12,500,000 shares at .02 Cents a share, which equates to $250,000. They have given us the OK to proceed, however based on the time frame you are looking at with trying to get this finalized before you ship out on 06/25/13, we would have to start ASAP.

In order to advance we need to prepare, underwrite, structure and present this offer to them in the appropriate format they desire. In order for us to proceed and have our staff begin work on this we require a $1,500.00 engagement fee due and payable at time of engagement.

Please let us know your intentions, as our investors offers have a short shelf life before they close out the file due to inactivity. If acceptable to you I will have my office immediately send out the appropriate paperwork to begin immediately.

On the scheduled date of closing 6/25/13 we recieved a call that the investor had cold feet and was making excuses like "I am waiting on another deal to close". A week later we proceeded to make several attempts to make the deal more attactive to the investors of DCM's with no success. After almost 60 days with no success we asked for a refund of 1,000 dollars of our 1,500 engagement fee. I am sure you can guess Mr Harvat's response due to me taking the time to fill this out. I am not saying that everyone may have the same experience with DCM however I am just sharing my experience. Thank you.

 If your reading this I really do not have time to go on with this he said she said BS because at the end of the day you don't know either of us most likely but I will leave you with this.

 If you want to know who we did recieve funding through and who will work hard for you without taking upfront fee's then please by all means give me a call and we will gladly share with you all of our experiences within the funding world as a new buisness.  Bottom line when your a start up company you need results and there are a lot of scammers and bullshitters out there, its tough to know who is full of crap until you get to deep into the deal and then you just have to cut your losses. Just do about 5 minutes worth of Due Dilligence on google before you go any further it will most likely save you a lot of money.

The Truth

AUTHOR: Compliance - DCM - ()

I would like to clarify several facts here:


1)      We, Diverse Capital Markets, Inc and/or Rudolph Harvat, never stated that WE would purchase shares of Mr. Walston’s company, as he claims. We stated that we had an interested investor that proposed an offer, pending our firm performing its due diligence to verify the validity of the transaction.

2)      We never told Mr. Walston that our investor was getting “Cold Feet”, or gave him a"Closing Date"as he stated, and we would challenge Mr. Walston to provide evidence where we ever stated that. What we did say was that our investor was waiting for another transaction of his to close so he could free up the money to invest in Mr. Walston’s company, which was just a short time away. Our investor never gave us and/or Mr. Walston a closing date, as he claims. Like we explained to Mr. Walston, this happens in the investing world. It was never ours or our investors intention to have a lag time in funding, however things like this happen. Maybe it’s Mr. Walston’s inexperience in the business world that led him to his decision to change the dynamics several times and his rash decision asking us to close the file, but inexperience is not an excuse to expect our firm to work on his behalf with no commitment from him.

3)      What Mr. Walston failed to tell you was that during this time frame he drastically changed the parameters of this transaction several times, of which we have proven confirmation of. When a client changes the dynamics of their transaction we have to start from scratch and then it may not fit the parameters of the original offer we presented to a client, which was the case with Mr. Walston, thus we lost this particular investor, due to Mr. Walston changing the parameters, and we had to start over.

4)      When we have an investor that requires us to perform this due diligence we have time, efforts and monies that we have to expend to do so. Our firm, like any other firm out there, just like Mr. Walston’s, does not work for free. If Mr. Walston would have stayed with us through the funding, this fee would have been credited back to him at closing. Per Mr. Walston words, via e-mail, verbatim… “Please destroy all contents of the Black Sky International Inc. file and I no longer wish do business with DCM.” We did not cancel this file, Mr. Walston did, therefore our fee was earned. When Mr. Walston canceled this file we were still actively working on it trying to expediently adapt to Mr. Walston’s ever changing dynamics of the transaction, and we would have continued to do so until we were able to meet the demands of his offer.

5)      Just because a client decides they no longer require funding does not give them the right to take advantage of our firm and require a refund, which in fact would mean we worked for free, and no company can stay in business by working for free, thus our engagement fee was earned and due payable.

6)      In closing, our terms and conditions were clearly stated to Mr. Walston when he engaged our form to work on his behalf, and he accepted them, per the endorsed contract that we have from him, of which can be supplied if necessary.
