Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Investment victims were befriended and told of an existing investment already having good returns and this is another special opportunity only available to a select few.

The aforementioned 3 are also tied to non-existent company fronts NRG, Turan, Elbrus Energy, Terra Resources and a few others dating back many years (all gemerally related to oil ventures or oil based products allegedly manufactured here in the States or related to oil well rights in Russia, etc) Fake press releases reporting agreements between real companies for contracts, new Board Members, etc. are published on the Internet. You are encouraged to not simply accept such press releases as true without due diligence and confirmation of names, etc. Know that anyone can publish press releases. (i.e., many names utilized are old or retired and/or, have no idea their name has been used, etc)

Deborah Hunkeler recently married (Fortini) an individual in AZ and purchased a building in AZ (2012) of which she emailed several friends and associates a Pro Forma and investmemt opportunity for a wine storage facility in Arizona. It is not appparent what will happen with the property she purchased at the time of this report. You are encouraged to be careful and ask many questions if you are an investor in that venture.

Prior to that, Deborah Hunkeler introduced Mr. Trinh to several victims and pretends to be a victim herself at this point. Mr. John Dolkart in San Diego (esquire) and Mr. Richard Weed in Newport Beach (esquire) assist with the fronting of the alleged fake entities, procedures, etc. Mr. Dolkart (and his father - before being disbarred) has been affiliated with Mr. Trinh for years. Mr. Weed has been affiliated with Mr. Vanetik for years. They both indicate they own positions in the various alleged fake entities/companies mentioned above.

Mr. Trinh is currently (July 2013) in a Lansing jail awaiting a criminal trial in MI related to NRG. You are encouraged to look up the arrest in Fullerton of Hiep Trinh (via an Internet search) and the MI Attorney General news release on the MI AG's website. You are also encouraged to search via the Internet both OC and SD Superior Court websites for a plethora of cases and filings related to the aforementioned names. (It appears Denorah Hunkeler is only recently involved in suspicions but does have at least two Complaints filed against her in San Diego that are available publicly from the SD Superior Court website).

Beware of any dealings with Deborah Hunkeler, Hiep Trinh, Tony Vanetik, Yuri Vanetik, John Dolkart and Rick Weed. There are many victims out there related to the actions of these individuals.

Do not forget that stocks and securities must be sold via a registered individual affiliated with a brokerage, etc. If something sounds too good to be true, it quite likely is. A private venture may provide you temporary returns that 'beat' the market, but it could also very well be a ponzi scheme or scam aimed at building your trust for a larger investment in the future. Your returns might be the money from the principal recently invested by other victims. 

What can you do if you believe you are a victim? Do not become angry and cut contact with the cons. Remain calm and ask questions of the individuals above. Report your suspicions and evidence to the SEC, FBI, IRS and Dept of Corporations and CA State Bar (related to the m is-guided actions of attorneys) Be in touch with the MI AG as well. They will help direct you to other victims.

You are involved in a multi-year, multi-million dollar scam that has morphed over the years to accommodate the needs and fears of the very devious group of con-artists.

False Allegations or Settlement - Know The Difference

AUTHOR: Ken - ()

Judge Judy was apparently reporting on my experiences to assist other potential vicitims to be aware. I am Ken. I am happy to relay my experiences and research findings to any authority investigating the alleged companies above. There are 3 San Diego cases involving Deborah Hunkeler (now Fortini) (all available via the SD Superior Court): 

Case No. GIC764637 KForcecom Inc (2001: the case is archived and available to view and print for a small fee via microfilm at the Central Courthouse, Older Records at 220 West Broadway, San Diego, CA 92101)

Case No. 37-2013-00049394-CU-BC-CTL (2013: avaialbel via website:

Case No. 37-3013-00035984-CU-BC-CTL (2013: available via webiste:

All the above are public records and avaialable for purchase. Docs from the 2013 are avaialable to purchase online for $7.50 per document. The point of my post is to simply tell everyone to be careful and investigate thoroughly. It is okay to trust. Trust, But Verify.

Deborah dismissed, false allegations

AUTHOR: LegalTeam - ()

It appears Ken Holman is "Judge Judy". Ken is a disgruntled investor who actually got his money back and should stop making false allegations without any proof. The allegations against Deborah were dismissed.
