Complaint / review text:
Recently I had the unfortunate crossing of paths with Michael Samuels at Yellowstone Capital. I needed some extra money to expand my business but my local banks have all become so hard to deal with I went online to an angel investor site. Somehow I was contacted by a number of these companies who all do the same thing. They get in touch via email or phone and the line is always the same, "I don't see why we can't help you get some funding. We can get you something for sure but we'll have to see how much". Don't buy a word of this crap because here is where you'll be next.
You'll end up sending a dozen of these nut cases your credit information and they will each go and check it thus lowering your score to the bottom level. Throughout the process they'll lead you on and make you think you are really going to get some money. But in the end they will tell you that you just didn't qualify and it's always "underwriting's" fault. And, that's it! They don't contact you anymore, they don't respond to your contacts and you have nothing to show for giving up your credit score and the time you spent.
Mike Samuels at Yellowstone Capital is one of the worst by far. I haven't heard from this jerk since I sent him my documents and after repeated attempts to contact him I have not had one response. If you need capital for your business find a better way. I'm not saying I have a perfect way but Yellowstone Capital is the wrong road for sure and I can prove that.
