RICH CABRAL - KEPT DEPOSIT on Equipment He Did Not Own
November 10, 2019 11:33
BUYER BEWARE!!! Rich Cabral of Infinity Imaging Consultants LLC.
I purchased an MRI and CT that were both supposed to come out of an Imaging Center at the same time for $63k. He demanded a 20% deposit and I insisted on 10% because it was my first deal with him. Additionally, he only had a negative one star review on Dotmed so I was a bit apprehensive. After two weeks of trying to get access to inspect the systems, Rich admitted that his deal had fallen through with the site and he would not able to provide an immediate refund because he used the deposit to "fund other deals".
I was willing to work with him and provide terms but the guy doesn't answer his calls, texts or emails. After threatening to expose him, he deposited $1k into my account but yet again disappeared immediately after not answering calls or texts.
After mentioning his name around the industry, I discovered that he's stiffed at least four colleagues of mine under similar circumstances. His previous company, Coastal Medical Imaging Consultants LLC/ has a complaint review on the Ripoff Report website titled “Rich Cabral - Old Bait and Switch Trick Business Practices"
Above my own feelings on being taken advantage of, I feel obligated to warn all colleagues within our industry about this person's shady business practices to prevent him from misleading professionals both in the hospital and broker market.
If you've had negative dealings with Mr. Richard (Rich) Cabral, providing your feedback on this forum would be greatly appreciated.

I had similar situation with Rich back in 2013. I thought he was out of the business. Too bad he isn't. He is not to be trusted.

I had the same situation with Rich last year. Purchased a mobile trailer that was not as described. After inspection we requested our $3,000.00 deposit (which was clearly stated fully refundable in the contract) and were met with excuses, ignored calls and zero cooperation. He is extremely unprofessional when things do not go his way. I posted a warning on linkedin soon after. Unfortunately I did not post on here.

I heard his name pop up recently so I guess he is still in business. Reading these old reviews reminds me I had a similar transaction with him. Very unprofessional, no clue what he is doing and is as shady as it gets. Stay Away.

Hello Aston, I realize I am commenting on your post almost after 2 years. But when I saw the name Rich Cabral, I couldn't stay away from sharing my tale of sorrow. I had a very bad experience with this unscrupulous individual who is still scamming people in our industry as we speak!
My experience with Cabral was unique in many respects. It's the not the usual loss of deposit, not delivered as promised, etc. story. A few years back (much before your experience in 2019), I had tried to do a deal with this fellow. For one reason or other, the end user owner decided not to sell the equipment and so both of us terminated our deal with no harm done to anyone. Months later, somehow the owner came to contact me directly and wanted to sell the equipment. I accepted and completed the purchase. In the spirit of good business ethics, I contacted Cabral and disclosed my purchase. I confirmed my interest of paying him a $1000 finder's fee on my own accord. Needless to say he was grateful and I wired the payment to him. I had saved him as a 'recipient' in my wire beneficiaries list. Never did I realize I will be making another wire transfer to him within 3 months, this time 'in error'! While making a payment to another recipient, I wrongly selected Cabral from my saved list of beneficiaries and sent $2000 to him :( By the time I realized my error and tried to 'stop' the wire, it was too late. The amount got credited to his account within minutes. I called him up immediately and apprised him of the situation. I requested him to 'return' the funds back to my account.
I don't have to tell you now how this story ends! Cabral categorically refused to return the funds saying he doesn't see any reason why he should return. When I pointed out that this might well mean end of a business relationship, he said he simply didn't care .
It is very unfortunate that it's all about money for several folks like Cabral in this world :(
