We were turned down by everyone we went for a bridge loan.
Our attorney suggested we apply at Black Onyx Lending so we did. They explained why we were being turned down and assisted us in putting together a complete financial package. Once we did this with Black Onyx assistance we were approved for our $3 million dollar bridge loan in 20 days!

We highly recomend Black Onyx Lending and their knowledgable financial team!

Black Onyx, led by John A. Sims, is a nightmare to stay away from. He was in prison for an ATM scam and tells people it was adjudicated and dismissed. In-fact, it was not. Court records show that his sentence was adjusted because it did not fall in line with sentencing guidelines.

Sims lies about everything. He’s a con(fidence) man that preys on those who are in financial distress and are looking for any glimmer of hope for salvation. With grandiose promises and plans he comes in. His only tool being Merchant Cash Advances (MCA) with high fees ($300k in fees and interest for $400k as an example) and commissions for him. He makes a couple payments to an MCA from taking out another loan from new MCA. He keeps doing that and gets you and others to put personal money in. He strings you along with promises of large SBA and conventional loans. Since there is no other hope, those willing to close their eyes and strung along.

All the while, he gains access to bank accounts. He got an ATM card on our US Bank account and took out tens of thousands of dollars... $500 at a time. This came to an abrupt stop when US Bank noticed he was on our account and removed him from our account.

He is an old man in his 70s. Dishonorable and only knowing crime his whole life - have pity on him, but do not be fooled. Listen to all the detailed reviews online and not to the shiny lies he will dangle in front of you.

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...

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!!!!!
