Back Yard Dream / Fraud
Frank posed as a principal in Hot Pepper ventures, he presented Bob Pepper as a investor that would invest money into my company. He than said that he had to get my company and patents ready for funding.
He charged me tens of thousands of dollars to the so called get my company ready for funding. When I demanded a meeting with Bob Pepper to verify his interest in investing in my company. Frank left me high and dry, he asked for a credit car number so he could present my company on a web site for companies seeking funding. He used this credit card without authorization purchasing car rentals. Since I have learned of others who has been frauded by Frank, he has frauded companies seeking investment capital out of $100's of thousands of dollars. I have not found one person who has had a good experience with Frank or Hot Pepper investments. He used Jeff and Rachael of Hot Pepper investments to act as a group of investors, I do not know if Jeff and Rachael are part of his fraudulant activies.
