Hey Guys,

There's been some hot mess going on with this company I took a "loan" out with. I'm in the hole and I'm awaiting the title for my gear. I feel like I have been dealing with some really shady practitioners and I just want to make sure that these creditors are legit in their doings.

In my naivety, I took a risk with some financing company who agreed to give me a "loan" to purchase my rig. Painstakingly, I paid it down and worked my ass off. When I thought it was paid off, I get a lis pending notice for not returning the equipment a few months after the term of the LEASE was over.

They were planning to sue me for $25K for rental charges not paid after the lease was up and interest accrued, legal fees, etc. They offered to settle with me for $10K and I accepted. I have not taken this to you all since this started, only because I fully thought I was in the wrong, but now I'm getting really nervous that I've thrown my money uselessly to someone who doesn't deserve it.

If any of you know of a lawyer you can trust in New York where I reside or CA where the loan was originated, please contact me on or off forum. I look forward to hearing from you.

BTW, BEWARE OF NORTH AMERICAN CAPTAL (CA), UNITED FUNDING GROUP (CA) OR FINANCIAL PACIFIC LEASING(WA)!!! If you don't believe me, look them up on the Better Business Bureau. More on that at a later time.

Slime. So pissed. So fucking pissed. Not just at myself for allowing myself to be taken, but at them for taking advantage of some neophyte willing to take a risk at furthering his career...

Thanks for your help in advance

Pardon my language if you read this before my edit... I'm still emotional about it. When I'm done, I'll give a full report on the low down. Thanks again.
