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

This lying piece of s--t will steal your money.  He got me for $3,750.00  This is what he told me it would cost to get to the company that does the Private Placement Memorandum (PPM).  Then I find out that I also have to pay another con artist by the name of LAURAN BONAPARTE of Lauton Funding an additional $5,167.00 to get to Paul Azous of A.Z.O co. that does the PPM's. 

They both assured me that once the PPM was done by Azous, that his 500+ investors would fund my sports project for $65 million.  I didn't realize at the time that TINSLEY and BONAPARTE were charging me almost $9,000 as a referral fee just to get to AZOUS.  That alone is truly disgusting, but that's who you are dealing with if you send this loser a PENNY of your money.

Then I had to pay AZOUS $8,000.00 for the PPM, and after spending countless hours working on what AZOUS needed to complete the PPM I get the final document, and months go by before he does anything.  His assistant Stacy kept telling me to be patient, and it takes time to get their investors involved.

I show the PPM to a real securities lawyer and he tells me that the PPM is not a legal document to take in funds for a Blue Sky Offering.  If I would have taken in any money using this document it would be a fraud, and I would have had to return every penny with substantial interest.

By this time Paul Azous had left the company and ran off to Asia.  The new person in charge is Robert Krane.  When I told him that the document they produced is a fraud, and I'm calling the police, he agreed to pay back my money.

I go back to TINSLEY and BONAPARTE and tell them that they sent me to a fraudulent entity that produces illegal documents.  They both refuse to pay me back the huge amount of money they charged me just for a referral fee.  That's the kind of low-life b*st--*rds that they are - animals!!!

They are now holding my money illegally knowing that I paid them for services that turned out to be fraudulent.  I have contacted the police in my home city of Riverwoods, and the detectives are going thru all the e-mails to put together the police report to go after them in Denver and in Dunellen, NJ - even though she shows an address in NY - she is not there!!!

It turns out that AZOUS freely advertises their PPM services on Craigslist which is home to hundreds of prostitutes selling themselves.

These people are con artists.  They will steal your money.  Once they have it, you will have your work cut out for you to get it back.  I am in the process of having them arrested for theft.  They know that they have my money based upon a false transaction, and they refuse to pay me back.

Also, I checked in to that MBA that Rod / Rick claims he has.  He has NO SUCH degree from any college.  He didn't even get a degree from any college - he is a psychopathic LIAR!!! 

And, all this bulls--it he has after his name and in his e-mails showing testimonials from various people claiming how he is so honest and all the other lies...who the hell do you think wrote all those lies?  This is one sick son-of-a-b*tch working out of his apartment!!!!

These people are low-lifes, scum of the earth.  They do not care about you.  DO NOT SEND THEM ANY MONEY - IF YOU ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THEM OVER ME, THEN KISS YOUR MONEY GOODBYE - YOU'LL NEVER SEE IT AGAIN.

Do not let them tell you that I am one irate person, and I'm not telling the truth.  I guarantee you that I am not the only one that has been a victim to these lying despicable bast--ds!!!  If you have also been ripped off by these people PLEASE put up a post here so other innocent people are no deceived by these liars.

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

This is the same con artist.  He changed his name obviously becuase the whole world knows about this low life worthless piece of s**t.

His new number is:  Office Phone (720) 236-3066

He will tyr to get you to send him money quickly or your offer will be voided.  DO NOT fall for this scam.  He will send you a Letter Of Interest or some other form of commitment, usually with the name of the company blackened out. 

This is another scam with the people he is working uses, most likely the name blackened out is Lauton Funding Group, or another broker who will ask you for more upfront money.

All of these people and companies are upfront fee scammers.  Rodney is already being investigated by the FBI, and the SEC in Colorado.  He will be in prison soon.

If you send him ONE penny, believe me, you can kiss it goodbye!!!  This scumbag has absolutely NO real resources to fund anything.  He refers you to another con artist to ask for more upfront money.  Tell him to stick his LOI up his lying black a*s.

If you send him any money, you are a FOOL!!!  Do not let him steal your money.  He is a psychopathic liar that needs to be stopped. 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions:  millgolf  at  comcast  dot  net or lookup Paxton in Riverwoods, Illinois and call me.

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

Please contact me if you are being asked for money from this lying b*****d.  You can find my name (PAXTON) on the internet in Riverwoods, IL - feel free to call me at any time and I will explain everything in more detail so I prevent you from being one of his victims.

I have had 4 other people contact me since I wrote the report on Tinsley and Bonaparte.  Each one of them gave thousands of dollars to these con artists and lost their money.  All of the situations were about the same as what they did to me.

One of them went to the address for Lauran Bonaparte at the Empire State Building in New York where she supposedly has her corporate offices on the 59th floor, and not only was there nothing listed on the directory in the building, nobody in any office on the 59th floor ever heard of Bonaparte or Tinsley.   Then he tracked Tinsley down to an apartment building in Denver.  Another low-life working out of his kitchen in his underwear stealing money from innocent people.

I have also been contacted by another 5 people who were about to send thousands of dollars to Tinsley, Bonaparte, and several other brokers working for Lauran Bonaparte.  I told each one of those people what Tinsley did to me, and the other people that have been ripped off by them, and they thanked God that they saw this report shown here on these scumbags.

Everything I have written is the absolute truth.  If you are stupid enough to send money to these conartists after you have read this report then you are a fool and you can kiss your money goodbye.  Do yourself a favor and walk away from these people.  They cannot do anyhting for you.  Do not let them promise you miracles to fund your project.  It is ALL LIES.  They will lead you on for months and you'll end up like me and the others filing reports and contacting the police to stop them.

If you'd like to see a copy of my police report, and the reports I am filing with the US Attorney General, SEC and the FBI, please contact me, and I will scan and e-mail to you.  Don't send them money to keep them in business.  You'll be sorry!!!!

One last thing that is very important that I learned the hardway:

Never send money to people that you don't know, especially if they tell you to send them thousands of dollars upfront so they can pay for the costs to get you funded.  Or, they have a lender that loves your project, but you have to pay the costs upfront or so called, "Due diligence" fees.  Then in addition they want you to sign a contract with the upfront money for 2 - 3 - 4 percent or more (I've seen one contract go up to 10%) of the total amount of funding you receive.  So if you're trying to raise $10 million, you have to pay these con artists $500,000 as a commission or success fee for their services.  So you have to pay these lying bastards upfront money so you can make them an additional ton of money!!  Just how stupid can we be to send money to people like that?  If they really have someone that will fund your project, are they going to send you away because you won't pay the upfront fees and lose out on %500,000 commission?  If they really have someone to fund the project, then they pay the upfront fees so they make the commission.  If they are not willing to do that, then you KNOW something is wrong, and you're taking a shot in the dark to hope that the guy isn't a con artist, or that he has a miracle happen and really find a lender for you.

These vultures prey on innocent people that have their dream.  They know you are stupid enough to send money out to anyone you don'y know if there is the remote possibility or some small glimmer of hope that they can come through for you.

Why should you pay them thousands of dollars so you can make them a ton of money?  If that isn't the biggest slap in the face you have ever had happen to you, then you are an idiiot to think they are ever going to fund you.  Go ahead and throw your money out the window.  I have to the tune of $230,000 and not one of those lying pieces of s - - t performed, despite promises, and their word, and personal guarantees that were not worth the paper they were printed on. 

The director of the FBI in Rolling Meadows, IL told me, "People sitting at home in their underwear at their kitchen tables, stealing money from innocent people with a dream has become the number 1 home based business in the USA.  We shut them down 4 or 5 per day, and if we were not so understaffed due to 9/11, we'd be shutting down 25 to 50 per day.  That is why you NEVER send any money to people you do not know.  And, if the money is going overseas, you'll never see it again no matter what they tell you.  A real lender will NEVER ask you for upfront fees unless you have a commitment letter contingent upon the fees being paid whereby they cannot back out of the contract unless they discover that you lied about something in your application.  And, most lenders that truly want to fund your project will not ask you for upfront money, they will add it to the total costs of the loan, and pay out those costs when you close the loan. Brokers or so called, "consultants" earn their living by taking your money in advance.  99% of them are con artists and non-performers.  The only safe way to protect yourself is to never send them any money."

Don't be a fool and send money to anyone.  If they truly have your project funded, or say they can get it funded, then let them earn their commission to refer you to the lender.  If they are referring you to another broker and want you to sign a new agreement along with upfront money - believe me, that money is gone forever!!!  Then you have a broker chain and if a miracle happens and you get funded, that idiot who made a couple of phone calls, or sent an e-mail will get paid a fortune for making a referral for 5 minutes of his time.  DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!!!!

Tell the referring broker that his contract is null and void if you send me to another broker who brings in the lender.  He gets paid by the broker he sent you to, and that should get him about 20% of the fee paid out at closing.  He doesn't get a full commission for making a referral, let alone charge you upfront fees?  What the hell kind of crap is that?  He's obviously a con artist, and full of s - - t!!!!

These vultures that tell you, "Don't you believe enough in your project to pay the upfront fees, or you're never going to find funding if you don't pay the upfront fees"  Believe me, these people are low-lives and scum of the earth, worse than used car salesmen.  Do not send them any money no matter what they tell you.  Tell them to put the costs on the backend of the loan.  If you really have someone to fund the project then I'm sure you'll have no problem doing that for me, so you can make a huge chunk of money when I get funded.  If you send me away, then I know you wanted me to take a shot in the dark to hope you get lucky.  If not, you'll jusr walk away and go con someone else untilsomeday you might hit a homerun and get one project funded so you never have to work again!!!

This is the TRUTH about the funding industry.  These vultures are the most evil nasty people in the world.  You've got to tell them, "I'm not sending you a penny" on your first call with them, and then they will either hang up on you or they'll try to give you some BS why you should send it to them.  If they can really fund your deal, they are NOT going to send you away and lose thousands of dollars over an upfront fee.

I truly hope this helps you - I wish to God someone would have explained this to me a long time ago.  Contact me if you need any help.  I know all the major players in the funding industry, and my project is being funded right now for $65 million for one facility, and $130 million for 2 more from another lender in CO.  It took me 10 years to get the project funded, and I learned a lot about the business during that time.  Most important, NEVER send money out to anyone no matter what they tell you!!!!
