This business or group of businesses is tricky to say the least. I get about one to two phone calls from them per month. The phone number is always from a different locale. Once a call came from Los Angeles California, another time from Shenandoah Iowa and a third time from Orlando Florida.

The scammer has a female robot calling. Or that's a pre-recorded message using a female voice. The recorded message is:

"This message is for BOB SMITHJONES (MY NAME) is spoken. We have received documents in a complaint with your name attached. If you wish to find out what the nature of this complaint is you may dial: 888-774-6302 or simply press 9 to be connected to a customer representative. Your complaint number attached is: xxxx xxx."

My guess is that they are a collection agency as they loan businesses money. My problem with this is I have not borrowed money. I have never been in the State of Florida nor in Shenandoah Iowa. I was in Iowa decades ago, driving my girlfriend home from Iowa State. I have never done business with any person or business in Iowa or Florida.

I guess these guys are attemtping to scam $50 or $100 bucks from me. Just enough for them to get by, but not enough to alarm the Governmet Attorneys in New York State where they perpetuate this tricky business. 

Yesterday, July 1, 2015, I searched the internet for: 888-774-6302. Yesterday the first name that came up is/was Horizon Business Funding, LLC. Today, search 888-774-6302 brings up this:

As they go by several business names and internet addresses here is some of them.

Rivis Capital
mkbfunding.com/
100 John St, New York, NY 10038
(855) 652-3863

and I found this:

Name: Ari Kaplan
Organization: Rivis Ventures
40 EXCHANGE PLACE
New York, New York 10005
Phone: 347-899-4028
Email: sm.fishman@pearlcash.com

AKA (police speak for alias - Also Known As)

Family Business Funding
100 John Street Suite 1716
New York, NY 10038
Phone: (917) 655-7180
Fax:     (888) 774-6302

The Family Bus. F. has no website currently, but I did find an email for them as: glenn@familyfunding.org .

The New York Secretary of State has no record of a Rivis Capital or Rivis Ventures on file. 

The phone/fax reported to the BBB for them is: Phone: (917) 655-7180 and Fax: (888) 774-6302.

The The New York Secretary of State has a record of Horizon Business Funding, LLC. The owner or agent for service of process is: Bret Conklin, according to a Address look up on Whitepages.com. The NY DOS (Department of State) give the following about Horizon: 

Current Entity Name: HORIZON BUSINESS FUNDING LLC
DOS ID #: 4309333
Initial DOS Filing Date: OCTOBER 17, 2012
County: ROCKLAND
Jurisdiction: NEW YORK
Entity Type: DOMESTIC LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY
Current Entity Status: ACTIVE

Selected Entity Address Information
DOS Process (Address to which DOS will mail process if accepted on behalf of the entity)
HORIZON BUSINESS FUNDING LLC
89 SPOOK ROCK ROAD
SUFFERN, NEW YORK, 10901

and a linkedin for Horizon shows it owned by: Meir Hurvitz who also owns PCRV INTL. The NY DOS has no listing for Mr. Hurvitz, nor PCRV INTL. The DOS does show a Pearl Cash at the same address: 89 Spook Road in Suffern, NY.

By searching the NYDOS database for Pearl only, I found this: 

Selected Entity Name: PEARL CAPITAL RIVIS VENTURES LLC
Selected Entity Status Information
Current Entity Name: PEARL CAPITAL RIVIS VENTURES LLC
DOS ID #: 4113608
Initial DOS Filing Date: JUNE 30, 2011
County: ROCKLAND
Jurisdiction: NEW YORK
Entity Type: DOMESTIC LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY
Current Entity Status: ACTIVE

Selected Entity Address Information
DOS Process (Address to which DOS will mail process if accepted on behalf of the entity)
PEARL CAPITAL RIVIS VENTURES LLC
40 EXCHANGE PLACE
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, 10005
Registered Agent NONE

another of his companies is: Second Source Funding (AKA 2nd Source Funding) and the NYDOS shows: 

Selected Entity Name: SECOND SOURCE FUNDING LLC
Selected Entity Status Information
Current Entity Name: SECOND SOURCE FUNDING LLC
DOS ID #: 3314612
Initial DOS Filing Date: FEBRUARY 01, 2006
County: ALBANY
Jurisdiction: DELAWARE
Entity Type: FOREIGN LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY
Current Entity Status: ACTIVE

Selected Entity Address Information
DOS Process (Address to which DOS will mail process if accepted on behalf of the entity)
REBECKA LIPKIND
150 BROADWAY 3RD FL.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, 10038
Registered Agent NONE

and there is a RipOff Report on Second Source already. Lastly at Meir Hurvitz linkedin page, it says that PCRV was sold in Feb. 2015 to a private equity shop. I'm guessing that is Ari Kaplan, above.

So what is my complaint? I take care of a 90 year old gentleman. When my phone rings, I must answer it in case it is one of his relatives or doctors. When the foregoing people take my time away, I have trouble helping my 90 year old pal. Also, I hever had these calls from my former mobile service, only after I changed. I kept the same phone number. I believe that this group of people has hundreds of phone numbers and it's a nuisance to block or impossible to block all their phony scam calls. As they waste my time, and I cannot charge money for it, they are a big big ripoff. Mostly I don't like them voilating my privacy. And why would I "wish" to know about a complaint filed agains me. Don't let them waste your time. Everybody I know hates me.
