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

If it sounds to good to be true... it is.

I received this unsolicited letter from one Mr. Rod Tinsley at rt0501 (at) hotmail (dot) com:

"This is how I can get you 100% funding, NO FICO, NO DOC and closing in 10- 90 days"

Then he lists 20 some company types (not by name) that he's help fund over the course of a year for various amounts, then follows with:

"Tinsley, Inc arranges Senior and Sub-debt financing for companies who cannot obtain adequate bank financing.

We are a Colorado based financial consulting company. We have several hundred non-traditional money sources that are specifically geared to fund troubled or growing companies. These are generally non-bank lenders that provide financing to companies who CANNOT obtain adequate capital to further develop or maintain their business."

"I'm honest and trustworthy. I do what I say I'm going to do. I could also use a few more referrals but life is good. I get all my business from, word of mouth, referrals and repeat business. I deliver what I promise. I solve problems. I'm just good...I give 1000%, committed to constant never ending improvement, hold myself to a higher standard and a good Sherlock Holmes.....
Top qualities: Personable, On Time, High Integrity "

Then a grouping of first name only "testimonials" to his extraordinary business skill and how he, "treats his business partners with great dignity and respect."

Followed by an address attached to a business not registered as a business in Colorado and a completely different e-mail address.


So, in attention to the due diligence to the security of my businesses funds I responded with:

Thank you for the offer.

Here are our terms. We will provide NO upfront fees for fund finding or lending opportunities with out one of the two items below. We have a pre-set finders fee percentage agreement. We have our own lawyers and accounting services and will provide no cash for legal services not certified by the state in which they operate. We require references from known and reputable companies before any monies are paid or We require a written and stamped letter of authenticity from a lawyer registered in the state he/she is licensed before any monies are paid.

So in full... no monies will be paid to any source for any reason without some proof of legal activity.

Let me know if business with you is possible.


His response:

"Why don't you try Wells Fargo.............."

Watch your backs honest people.

I've seen it all!

I was also ripped off by this low-life liar. He has no accounting degree...he has NEVER funded anything. He is a non-performer that steals your money - PERIOD!!!

I would highly suggest that you do a search here for LAUTON Funding, or Lauran Bonaparte who works with Tinsley to steal money from innocent people. You will hear my story about Tinsley and Bonaparte, and then you can contact PAXTON in Riverwoods, or read the report on Lauton closely and you'll figure out how to get hold of me.

These people are EVIL lying bastards. DO NOT send them a penny. Believe me, you will never see your money again. They know you have a dream to get your project funded, and that you'll send money out to people you don't know. Then they also want you to pay them 2 to 5 percent of your total funding when you close. Well isn't that a slap in the have to pay these assholes upfront so they can make a ton of money on you. If they truly believe they have the lender ready to fund your project, then they pay the upfront costs, and when you close you'll give them double the amount. If they are not willing to do that for you....can you see the red flag going up?

Believe me, it is a scam, and all they are doing is making you pay them money to hope for some kind of miracle, just another shot in the dark. Don't be a sucker for this kind of con. They really do not have anyone for you, they're just out to get your money, and they'll string you along for months giving you a glimmer of hope and he'll never come thru for you.

If you are trying to get a project funded contact me and I will help you with the lenders that are funding 2 facilities for me here in the Chicago area. There are NO upfront fees, and these are real lenders, not some pipe dream from those losers.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Upset because he is not suitable for funding

AUTHOR: Rod Tinsley - (U.S.A.)

I had to determine if he was suitable for funding since he wanted funding for 50M. He said he had $1000.00 in the bank. I told him he was not suitable for funding and then he blew up. Would you loan this guy 50M when he only has $1000.00 in the bank?

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Not suitable for funding

AUTHOR: Rod Tinsley - (U.S.A.)

This individual was not suitable for funding. There are people who are looking for 50M $$ but when you ask then what their current liquid reserves are they only have $1000.00 in the bank. Then they get upset when I tell them they are not suitable for funding. NO 50M $$ for this guy
