Mr. Asvadi's story is very similar to mine with mostly the same names.  Heritage and York's response to him is their classic guilty response. Blame the victim.  I personally caught Donald Kaplan in bald faced lies designed to get our money which he did.  Its a confidence game he and his President plays.  The rest of the folk like Sly and Shaunak Patel are just contract complicit players. 

Notice the Heritage and York verbal treatment of Mr. Asvadi in their reply to an apparently honest accounting of damage he suffered. That's a confidence game they play.  Please feel free to contact me with your problem.  Their BBB claims are the best they got. Try talking to the BBB.  You'll feel like you're talking to the person you're complaining about.

Glad to build momentum.  Good people should not let this continue.  (((redacted)))

Donald Kaplan and Ian Dolby

AUTHOR: - ()

Ian Dolby and Donald Kaplan are in my expert opionion full blown scammers.  Their tactics are refined and intended to craftily rebut legal and regulatory complaints.  They are obviously out of business and I recommend in no small way that they be not trusted in any matter in their new scammy deals.  

To call their approach a bona fide fraud is reasonable.  Their defenses are many and crafted from the getgo.  Be warned that their protests and hurling invectives at others is the game they cause you to fear ... when you speak out or identify yourself.  There are a large number of their victims of their well crafted fraud and if you are one, speak out.  Ian Dolby is the scariest of the two, pathological and complict. Donald is simply the gifted confidence man.  

I encourage people to speak out about these kinds of frauds even en cognito.  They know who i am.  I am all of you they sold frauds to.  All frauds, else they would have had a few references instead of nameless testimonials.  Of course they told me as any of their victims that they had a perfect record on geting finance.  

I call on all victims of Donald Kaplan and Ian Dolby to speak out.  Good people should always speak out.

False allegations against Ian Dolby and Donald Kaplan by fictitious person - Cam Zeece

AUTHOR: I. Dolby - (USA)

Cam Zeece is a fictitious person. Heritage and York never had a client in Austin, TX. The statements by “Cam Zeece” are false and malicious.

I will assume that Cam Zeece is an alias for Charles Botchway of Madison Street Capital. The Botchway’s have a profile picture online taken in front of a “Welcome to Austin” sign.

This is the same Charles Botchway that was a Managing Director at International Profit Associates (IPA) before he joined Houlihan Smith & Co. Houlihan Smith & Co. with Charles Botchway at the helm went on to change its name to Madison Street Capital. Charles Botchway was a named defendant in two lawsuits brought against Houlihan Smith and in relation to Madison Street Capital ownership.

Donald Kaplan and Ian Dolby were the named plaintiffs that brought a class action suit against Charles Botchway, et al. Donald Kaplan and Ian Dolby fought on behalf of all employees that had inappropriately lost the value of their Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP retirement fund) due to prohibited transactions by Charles Botchway, et al. The ESOP went from a value of $ 2,090,157 to $0.  

On June 20, 2014, the court granted final approval of a $1,275,000 settlement to the plaintiffs on behalf of the employees that had been subjected to wrongdoings by Charles Botchway, et al. Within 1 day of the court actually closing the settlement agreement in favor of Ian Dolby and Donald Kaplan as the named plaintiffs against Charles Botchway, et al a posting by “Cam Zeece” was made stating that Ian Dolby and Donald Kaplan had lied to get a lot of money from Cam Zeece. The posting is retaliation, a deliberate and false character assassination against Ian Dolby and Donald Kaplan.

I believe this posting was another part of the continual retaliation against Donald Kaplan and Ian Dolby for bringing a lawsuit against Charles Botchway for intentionally taking the hard earned retirement funds of employees via prohibited transactions. This posting is likely another character assassination of Donald Kaplan and Ian Dolby brought on by the perpetrator against the persons that stood up for what’s right.  

For detailed information:



Case: 1:12-cv-05134 Document #: 138 Filed: 06/20/14



The other aforementioned lawsuit brought against Charles Botchway, et al is for allegedly violating Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Illinois Minimum Wage Law.

For detailed information:

De La Riva et al v. Houlihan Smith & Company, Inc. et al RICHARD HOULIHAN, ANDREW D. SMITH, and CHARLES BOTCHWAY




I was told by Charles Botchway that he would stop at nothing to ruin me (Ian Dolby) for leading the lawsuit against him and others for their lack of fiduciary responsibility and for carrying out a number of prohibited transactions that resulted in an employee retirement fund that suddenly went to $0. I could call it what it really was, but he’d probably sue me for defaming him! Please do what’s right. Cam Zeece doesn’t exist.
