Complaint / review text:
This is our story regarding these con artists. We had a group comprised of honest & typical struggling Middle-class Americans. Our small group consisted of retirees with some savings, casino workers, and a couple of small business owners. We had hopes to create supplemental income to keep everyone in our group afloat financially. We did our best to make careful investment decisions especially in today’s world of con-artists. When we had enough money to put together as a group, we invested in Kapacke Mining LLC. We were visiting the in-house Attorney, Peter Rinato in the Las Vegas Kapacke Mining office. We were given information on this project last summer 2012 with little knowledge that this group was leaving out details that complaints were already piling up on their company Kapacke Mining LLC.
They had given a chance of doubling our monies in five months. A few of the group members were able to attend a field trip to see the actual mining site. It seemed like a legitimate operation as we were presented supposed protection in the form of UCC Nevada and Wyoming filed mining equipment collateral. The group wired their monies together for a total investment of $80, 000 USD on July 3rd, 2012. When October 3rd, 2012 came along when the principal of our investment was promised to be sent back to us, Patrick Pizzoferrato Jr. and his group gave us the excuse that there was a “temporary” shutdown of operations. Patrick being the lead operator and co-owner of the company with Chris Tarquinio was not admitting their fault that they were careless on handling operation. The group portrayed as it was a temporary setback. We were being fed hope (in the coming months of October to present) that situations would get better. Our group was suspicious and believed these scum bags are opportunists and were attempting to make it look as if the company had to go into default in order to cover their lies. We have been given enough information from our own investigations to conclude this is a ‘deviant’ pattern by this group. The BLM even stated “Patrick and the group had violated before, but paid the fines which clean the slate like nothing happened.” It angers our group that there are no federal or state laws to stop this shameful group and others like them from operating in Nevada, Arizona or anywhere in the nation even if they have a criminal record or a shady past.
After numerous months investigating, we found Patrick Pizzoferrato Jr. had served jail time years back and the in-house attorney may have been operating with the impression of legitimacy when in fact he’s been having issues for many months with suspended lawyer status for over a year. There have been very many delays, multiple lies, total cowardly avoidance from Chris Tarquinio, Patrick Pizzoferrato Jr. and Peter Rinato of a dignified face to face meeting or even a conference call. With a couple bounced checks and the undignified surprise to find out the Kapacke Mining LLC was evicted by their landlord, we are VERY fed up and need the public’s help to find justice or resolution to our problem! Be very aware and careful when it comes to these low life scumbags! They all should be held accountable as they have humiliated us to our friends, families and colleagues. We lost our credibility, potential income, future income, current clients, future clients, and our dignity.
