The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Rick Geller during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards Happy Rock Merchant Solutions.

Happy Rock Merchant Solutions, formally known as GOCAP Financial, is a direct funding company that provides financial solutions for companies across the company. Rick Gellar elaborated on the services of his company, "we provide financing to companies all across the country in a customized way that works for an individual business. Every business’ capital needs are different. Traditional banks don’t work for every business. We provide alternative financing. We do all types of businesses, not just small businesses."

Leads for Happy Rock Merchant Solutions are provided through a network of independent sales organizations across the country. This network act as brokers that source business to business sales. Potential clients for Happy Rock Merchant Solutions will need to fill out a simple application to see if they would be a good fit. Mr. Gellar further stated, "we can make a decision within 24 hours and we can fund a business within a couple of days. People that need money quickly, we are able to provide that service for them. We just provided about a million dollars for a medical group in New Jersey that wanted to buy out a medical practice. While they were eligible for bank financing, the bank could take months to get them the money and we were able to get the money within a few days."



CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – HAPPY ROCK MERCHANT SOLUTIONS

During the on-site interview, Mr. Gellar was asked to describe a situation where a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. Mr. Gellar expressed that their most common complaint arises when the client gets into trouble financially. This generally happens when the client borrows too much money from multiple funding companies, "most people are pretty happy with our service, it’s when they become unhappy when they overload themselves with debt and we become the fallout." In order to remedy situations like this from happening they take the time to educate their clients on the dangers of borrowing too much money too fast.

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Gellar expressed that all comments made were false comments made by disgruntled ex-employees or contractors. Happy Rock Merchant Solutions is taking legal action against the individuals who placed these false complaints. He went on to provide their impressive list of achievements, "we are a licensed lender in California. I am an attorney in NYC. My partner is an Engineer with an MBA in Finance. We have been in business in NYC since 2009. IN this industry, there are really no accreditations. We are members of the Commercial Finance Association. Members of the International Factoring Association, Small business finance association. You don’t need a license to do what we do. We are a licensed lender in California which is a very strict underwriting process. It’s a pretty big stamp of approval."

When asked what type of changes they have made to honor their commitment to making things right with the consumer per the request of Ripoff Report, Mr. Blake stated, "we always strive to provide the best client service that we can by being upfront. Sometimes they have issues paying us back, and opposed to the people that just quit paying us, they call us and ask to modify the payment or work with them to see what their needs are. As far as the sales people, we try to be more communicative with the sales people to let them know that while their client is approved, it is contingent on certain conditions that need to be met before they get the money. They need to know that this deal can, not that we don’t like the deal, but if something comes up last minute, this is the process that we have to go through. If we do have to kill a deal last minute, to communicate to them directly and explain to them exactly what we are doing so they can explain it to their client. Basically, more communication, and more transparency."

Happy Rock Merchant Solutions is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program, "It means a lot to us. Customers and people Google companies. They go to Ripoff Report to make sure there are no issues with this company. It also gives an opportunity to monitor what people say about your company. This type of website and others like it gives a forum for people to log complaints whether they are valid or not. Gives us a chance to see what is coming down the pipe and being able to address them. Have Ripoff Report vet us as a company to understand that we are here trying to do good business. We might have unhappy people time to time, but keep an eye out and address with people that have a valid complaint, unlike this one that is bogus."

STATEMENT FROM HAPPY ROCK MERCHANT SOLUTIONS:


This guy Robert Massimi is an individual under some serious SEC investigation, please see the link http://billingsgazette.com/business/sec-alleges-hedge-fund-was-a-ponzi-scam/article_6cabcc8e-1db9-5b20-adb2-132cc82a1c17.html He approached me at the beginning of last year saying that he got my number from a friend who spoke very highly of Happy Rock and that he wanted to refer business to us. He stated that he could help hire sales people and refer several brokers. He also stated that he had several legal issues and multiple judgements and wanted to operate as a contractor under his company Visionary Investments. He would submit weekly invoices for his services and we have paid every single one of them. After a few weeks it became clear that Robert had no knowledge of the cash advance industry and was not able to handle customers or brokers. In August, after some difficulties with the people he was referring, we decided to part ways. He was definitively not happy and started right away bad-mouthing Happy Rock with employees and other companies and demanding payment of extra fees. After a few more months, upon learning about a few deals we had made with one of the guys he originally referred to us, he started threatening of suing Happy Rock for unpaid commissions. We kindly told him to have his attorney contact us if he felt he had a claim. Further we explained him that he got paid on all the invoices he submitted and there was no contract or agreement to pay anything on deals we closed ourselves. He got very enraged and decided to engage in extortion tactics by posting negative reviews on-line and persuading his friends to do the same. He also threatened to continue posting until we paid him $25,000. The post above from Orlando Hernandez is an example. We had to call the police to make him stop.


NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED


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


Happy Rocks owners, Luigi Ceneri and Rick Geller rip off their employees by going behind salesmans backs , stealing their deals to not pay them commissions owed them. Luigi Ceneri also makes an initial deal with you, then says he never agreed to that. Happy Rock prays on the weak, this time they messed with the wrong person as I am about to file a six figure law suit against them. Anyone who was screwed by these two liars and crooks can reach out for me on here to join in on the law suit. I have a lawyer who will only charge if we win!  Lets get back at these two thieves!
