The article you are about to read is about a group of hard working individuals, your typical struggling white collar middle class Americans some of which are retirees who were taken for a large sum of their hard earned money. The group of scam artists call themselves Kapacke Mining LLC.

 The group of victims, is made up of very honest, struggling, hard working middle class Americans. They also consist of casino workers, retirees (who used some of their hard earned savings) and a few small business owners. What they had hoped for was to create some supplemental income to help keep everyone in their group financially afloat. tried their best to make very sound and careful investment decisions, (especially in today’s world where you have to watch out for scam artists who are out to scam you every day!

When they arrived at the Las Vegas Kapacke Mining office , they visited with the in-house Attorney  by the name of Peter Rinato. They were given information about the project last summer 2012 with little knowledge that Kapacke Mining LLC had left out some major details such as complaints that  had been made on their company. The group was given the chance to double their money (investment) in five months. A few of the members from the group were able to go see/tour the mining site. At the time, it seemed like a legitimate operation plus they were presented with some supposed protection that was in the form of UCC Nevada and Wyoming filed mining equipment as collateral.

Together as a  group they wired their funds they had gathered  for a total investment of $80,000 USD on July 3rd, 2012. If we skip forward  a few months and October 3rd, 2012 along; this is when the principal of their investment had been promised to be sent back to them. Patrick Pizzoferrato Jr. and the group of scam artists gave them an excuse that there is a “temporary” shut down of operations. Patrick being the lead operator and co-owner of the company, with Chris Tarquinio, was not admitting to their fault that they were careless on handling operations. Kapacke Mining LLC  made themselves look as though it was just a temporary setback. The group of investors were fed hope (in the coming months of October to present) that situations would get better. Unfortunately, they have not.

The investors have been  suspicious and believe these scum bags are out for themselves and whatever they can get and are attempting to make it look as if the company has to go into default in order to cover their lies. The investors have been given enough information from their own investigations to conclude that this is a ‘devious’ pattern by this group. The BLM even stated “Patrick and the group had violated before, but paid the fines/fees which clean the slate like nothing happened. It is shameful that there are no state or federal laws/regulations to stop this awful group of criminals 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. It has enraged the group!

After investigating for a number of months, they found that Patrick Pizzoferrato Jr. in fact had served jail time years back and the in-house attorney Peter Rinato may have been operating and making others think he was legit when in fact he’s been having issues for many months
with suspended lawyer status for over a year! There have been many delays, multiple lies,  avoidance from Chris Tarquinio, Patrick
Pizzoferrato Jr. and Peter Rinato of a legitimate 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, they have finally had enough and are are fed up and need the public to help them find justice or resolution to their problem! Be aware of these slithering, slimy scum bags!

They all should be  held accountable for their actions and be filled with They have been humiliated to , family and colleagues. They lost their credibility, future income, currentclients, future clients, their dignity and the list goes on.

When a victim comes to us and tells us about their case we spend quite a bit of time investigating and looking into the merits of the matter. We then look into the backgrounds and names of the people who are reported to us or the company they own or represent. By the time we contact the offending party, we have already determined that what they did and how they did it was unjust.
