Black Onyx, specifically Diane Cole, Michelle Wax, and John Sims are frauds. They took my check, but the very next day I had secured funding elsewhere and informed Black Onyx I would not require their services. I had not filled out any of their "due diligence" paperwork yet so they had not done anything on my behalf. They promised to return my money by Oct. 12, two months after sending the check. It is now January and I still have not received anything. They are all crooks. More...

Wow, maybe some times you should look at all the facts before you throw stones at glass houses. Yes, John A Sims went to prison which was appealed through the courts and his sentence was vacated by the Federal Appellate Court by a vote of 3 - 0.

John Sims is a convict:
ATM scam puts Mich. man behind bars for 21 years
July 25, 2007
The Grand Rapids (Mich.) Press: John Sims says bad business led to the downfall of his ATM leasing company, but Kent County Circuit Judge Mark Trusock exceeded sentencing guidelines and sent the once-prominent businessman to prison for up to 21 years. State sentencing guidelines call only for 10 to 28 months. Sims, 51, is headed to prison for "lying, cheating and stealing" from people he was supposed to be working with in a legitimate enterprise. In all, Sims was charged with a series of scams that cost his partners about $750,000. Sims was convicted in May of five felonies related to fraudulent ATM leases that allowed him to secure money from partners. Sims reportedly drew up documents that showed finalized deals to place ATMs in banks, convenience stores and other businesses around Michigan. More...

John Sims and Black Onyx Lending are a great place to do business. John is an AWESOME businessman, he made it so I was able to finally start the business that I have been trying to get funded for years with no luck through traditional banks. They got everything I needed approved and funded immediately. John and his team are super friendly and helpful, even if you have no idea what you are doing. I recommend this company to anyone who needs to get funds to do whatever you need start a business, buy a house, they will even help you to get funded to lease the equipment that you need to get your business up and running.

Thanks Again John Sims and Black Onyx!!!!!

Wonderful company to do business with. I have dealt with John Sims and his team at Black Onyx many times and every single business transaction has been approved. Some of them required a little more work on their part but they never failed to deliver. I will continue to use their wonderful services for many years and recommend that anyone seeking financial capital or consulting contact this excellent lending firm. Thanks again John Sims and the whole team at Black Onyx Lending Firm.

Q&A

Business Lending
Financing
Mortgages
Accounts Receivable

You must file the proper legal paperwork as required by the local, state, federal gov. and the required business forms for the IRS.
As an example; you need a road map to drive a car, to get you where you want to go on your journey.

Business is similar in a way. You need to have an EXPERIENCED BLACK ONYX TEAM with over forty years of knowledge, show you the way to ensure your success for your business.

To listen to our client, learn what THE GOAL'S are, and be able to help using our EXPERIENCE and Knowledge to show you the way!
Our BLACK ONYX TEAM is so wonderful to work alongside of, because we care so much about our client's.
We keep up on all the changes with accounting so that our weekly meetings are very helpful to ensure that we share how to do our jobs correctly.

When you can assist another person it makes me feel good! As I started a business I found it was so very rewarding as it is a part of me.
I would never give up this feeling.

We have more experience, we are hands on, good communicators, and the best of all we have clients that tell others about their experiences with working together with our TEAM!
