Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW

EDitor's UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Seek Capital for its full commitment to quality customer service.

Ripoff Report's discussions with Seek Capital have uncovered an ongoing dedication by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. Seek Capital listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services. Seek Capital's CEO, Mr. Roy Ferman, has informed us that his personal philosophy is that his clients success are the heart of the business. As a successful executive, Mr. Ferman feels it is critical to listen to their clients and respond properly. By always putting their customers first, Mr. Ferman hopes to maintain Seek Capital as a successful enterprise both now and for many years to come. Another top executive, told us that Mr. Ferman's personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in service, understanding that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care". Seek Capital's Roy Ferman says this, "We are one of the startup and early stage funding organizations in America. With us, you'll always receive a simple and customized approach to achieving funding for each business that we work with. No two businesses are the same and hence why they all require their own customized funding product. ."

One of the things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its review is that typical customer feedback reads, "The people at Seek Capital were so knowledgeable and helpful. We've successfully secured the seed funding needed to get my new company off the ground. I can safely say we would not have been able to start operations within 60-days of concept without the assistance of Seek Capital. I was never pressured and I felt like the associates who assisted me really had my best interest in mind. Thank you Seek Capital!" The above is posted from their Facebook Reviews page.

This complaint prompted our team to be even more proactive to reach out to our clients.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED

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

 I originally requested $20-25,000 in funding. When I spoke with Carl (Bernie) Garland he said that they could probably get me almost twice as much with cash capabilities. I said perfect as I need cash too! Bear in mind that these are business/personal credit cards. Here's the issue, I have two mortgages and one is from my previous marriage. This is impacting my debt to income (DTI) ratio and I already knew that prior to contacting Seek Capital LLC. I'd been turned down elsewhere on my own prior so I took a chance with them as a last resort. I made it clear to Bernie after his underwriting team approved me based solely on my credit score (which is greater than 730) that I had two mortgages and he made it clear to me that his "professional" underwriters shouldn't have an issue. Two months go by (not fast service which they advertise) and I begin receiving declined credit card inquiries in my mail including one even stating "no third party applicants please apply on your own" so now I'm skeptical ESPECIALLY when I'm assured by Bernie that Seek has a "GREAT relationship" with these lenders. Seek did however manage to aquire one $14,000 personal credit card. Gabe Feldman contacted me saying that they've done all that they can do and that they need to bill me for 11.99% of $14,000 which amounts to $1,678.60 I'm using the business start up capital for Real Estate investing so there's not a whole lot that I can do with a $14,000 credit card, less the $1,678.60 that I owe them. ... My advise is this, if you're going to use their services, can you really feel confident in what they say? I signed the contract so I'm liable to pay even though they come up incredibly short. If you've got the credit and you have a fair understanding of how it all works, GO IT ALONE!! You don't need a third party applying for you.

Scammed? More like mislead.

AUTHOR: - ()

 I never said that I got scammed. I certainly could have but I won't go that route. I was mislead over the telephone. My original post was to warn folks to be skeptical of their assurance. I made several points clear to them in which I was told that it wouldn't be an issue, otherwise I would've backed out. A consumer should have confidence in a product.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

I don't understand you complaint

AUTHOR: Jamon - (USA)

 You asked for 20 to 25 k? And you got 15k. They clearly explain the fee they charge for there services. You understood that when you agreed to the deal. To say that is a scam is negligent on your part. It is disappointing they couldn't get you more money but I'm sure they used all there resources which is why it took longer than expected. You basically got what you came in asking for, where you couldn't get it on your own. This is not a scam
