Our company paid a $7,600 fee to PNC (Pathetic National Capital) of Newport Beach, California back in March, 2016 toward their funding services for our Texas horizontal oil project we were preparing to develop. We were assured by PNC that they had solid funding sources and specifically a relationship directly with a successful and seasoned businessman, who turned out to be William (Bill) Mournes who was Chuck Elfsten's supposed cuddle buddy in his military days (if they really served with valor, which is doubtful), for providing only oil and gas funding to clients of PNC like us. We were assured we would be funded within 60-90 days of paying the required fee in March, 2016.

We are now in June, 2019 and they have never performed in 39 months of depositing the funds with them. The excuses have been absolutely absurd at times throughout their excuse laden journey. Their websites are still up and running with REPRESENTATIONS that THEY have facilitated the ‘Recent Closings’ of a number of certain transactions. But three (3) years later, not a single one of these transactions has ever changed or expanded on their websites. It is my presumption that these ‘Closings’ are likely false or even partially false.

Another credible gentleman in Kansas with a good and HONORABLE reputation filed a lawsuit against all these clowns who apparently specialize in taking the bread from the tables of hard working honorable USA citizens like us. Because of this lawsuit, for which I was subpoena’d and deposed, it was brought to my attention that I am one of about sixty (60) clients they have potentially scammed by not providing genuine investment services they represented they were capable of delivering. 60 CLIENTS potentially fleeced by these clowns for their own selfish gain!

They have now stopped returning our calls and emails and have engaged an attorney. Doubtful he will be paid like the other two or three sets of attorneys we heard about that dumped these clowns once they were stiffed. My email is provided as a WARNING to others to flee! If it is helpful for others, I believe Chuck’s cellphone number is 949.637.XXXX. Bill Mournes has entities set up in Ireland. Bill also had a niece named Erin McClosky. And there was a potentially shady business guy involved with them we looked into named Mark Zouvas.

Once we sent our money over to Chucky, he immediately disappeared off the radar and passed us off to his soft speaking incompetent sidekick Mark Hasegawa. What a joke this guy was, probably has one of those wimpy hand shakes that matched his wimpy whiny voice etiquette. BUYER BEWARE!


Just spoke briefly with the Kansas attorney who handled the lawsuit against Elfsten, Hasegawa, and Mournes. The trial resulted in excess of $4,000,000 in federal judgements and attorney costs against Elfstein, Hasegawa, Mournes, Duval, and Mark Zouvas primarily for RICO violations.

Just want to warn other potential victims that according to my visit with the attorney, these guys may be still operating their Venezuelan Bond funding scam under a new name, which possibly may be under a guy named Daniel Star(r). The Pacific National Capital website is no longer active. But their website is still up and running, which shows their 'supposed' Recent Closings that have never been able to be verified. Duval passed away in February, 2021 from what I understand to be suicide.
