The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by William D. James during an interview with Wilshire Financial Group.

Wilshire Financial Group offers a broad array of corporate financial support services, strategic funding services, accounting services, and CFO executive search and placement services. Wilshire Financial Group’s clients find it convenient and a pleasure to have all business support services under one roof. Bill James began his career as a legendary professional model traveling throughout the world modeling for Ralph Lauren fashions but he always maintained a keen desire in business financing and worked hard every day learning the ins and the outs of commercial oil and gas financing as well as mortgage financing. When his fashion modeling career ended Mr. James entered the world of business financing. And as he says; “I am so very happy I did!”



CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – WILSHIRE FINANCIAL GROUP

Mr. James was asked about a situation when a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. “Mr. Nickens our last complaint we contacted directly. He told us he wanted to get our attention. The statements he made were fabricated. We are not a virtual office, we do not "pretended" to sell corporations. We sold him one! We do not "pretend" to find CFO's for our corporate clients. We do operate an executive search and placement service and we do locate CFO/Credit Partners. In fact, Mr. Nicken's wife, Kimberly Perata is a CFO/Credit Partner signed under our contract. He came to us with serious IRS audit issues which we were able to resolve. Subsequently, the IRS opened another year of his tax filings for audit which we have not been retained to assist him with. The other post we do not know the posters as they were posted without identification.”

Wilshire Financial Group has made many improvements such as handling any complaints immediately as long as they know the identity of the complainant. They also state that they will address the issue and do all within their capability to remedy the situation as long as the complaint is genuine.

Wilshire Financial Group is proud to be a part of Ripoff Report’s Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. It means that they are a part of an organization dedicated to customer satisfaction. Wilshire Financial Group is a leader in its industry and is dedicated to their client's success and satisfaction.

NOW TO THE POSTING(S) THAT HAS BEEN EDITORIALLY REDACTED:


-----------------------------------------------------------------

Ripoff Report would like to let readers know that Ripoff Report emailed this customer, so the member business could make things right with them. When a business joins the Corporate Advocacy Program, Ripoff Report emails everyone from the past so the member business can make things right with them. Of course, everything within reason.

The author of the Ripoff Report below never responded to our offer to help them. It should also be known that some of the reports posted about Wilshire Financial Group are likely posted by the same person posing as someone else. The Review below should be ignored. 


STATEMENT FROM WILSHIRE FINANCIAL GROUP: 


Steven Nickens our last complaint we contacted directly. He told us he wanted to get our attention. The statements he made were fabricated. We are not a virtual office, we do not "pretended" to sell corporations. We sold him one! We do not "pretend" to find CFO's for our corporate clients. We do operate an executive search and placement service and we do locate CFO/Credit Partners. In fact, Mr. Nicken's wife, Kimberly Perata is a CFO/Credit Partner signed under our contract. He came to us with serious IRS audit issues which we were able to resolve. Subsequently, the IRS opened another year of his tax filings for audit which we have not been retained to assist him with. Mr. Nickens also purchased a seasoned corporation from us on August 27, 2018 for $11,500.00. He paid us $5,000.00 and we delivered the company. To date he has not paid the remaining balance of $6,500.00. Mr. Nicken's wife Kimberly Perata was referred by Wilshire Financial into the funding program with Mid-West Corporate Credit. The funding goal was $150K. Mid-West Corporate Credit obtained approximately $80,000.00 in first round of corporate funding. The goal fell short so Mrs. Nicken's informed us she did not want to move forward and further advised us she "cut up the cards?" Mr. Michael Mann of Mid-West Corporate Credit put her into collections for the fees earned for submitting her loan applications. We called Mid-West and asked them to forgive the amount owed by Mrs. Nickens. We received no positive response. Mr. Nicken's is being less than sincere. When did it become so easy to lie? Lying has become so rampant that it feels like it’s more acceptable than telling the truth. Lies, deceit, trying to get even…that stuff lingers on and take's on a life of it's own. That’s really bad energy and that’s going to come back on you down the road. Mr. Nicken's told us "he's good people" but in the same telephone conversation he said; " I'm Unemployed and I've got nothing better to do than to file complaints on you guys. I'll blow you up on the internet and then I'm calling the DA's office and the Attorney General..." and then he made this statement "Mid-West Corporate Credit and Michael Mann ruined my wife's credit...but you referred me and I hold you personally responsible." Steven Nickens then made the following  very concerning statement: "If I can find a gun I'm coming to your office and I'm going to kill everyone in the building!"  Mr. Nicken's also made this statement in the same conversation; "My wife is 'good people' but remember her last name is Perata and her father is in the mob! He then related a story about having is "hubcaps stolen" and he called his father in law and he found the gu?ys that took the hubcaps and broke their legs, etc. 


NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED


---------------------------------------------------------------------


They advertise seasoned companies for sale to help you get immediate funding. You pay a fee and they suposedly get you funding. They put you in touch with Bank of America to set up an account and they deliver nothing...take your money and then give ou an excuse as t why they can't fund you.


Bill James and John Gary are total (((REDACTED))) They maintain a office in high rent district on Wilshire and it all is a front to add to the believability of their (((REDACTED)))! We are in touch with Ca Attorney Genrals Office regarding them and our situation.
