Dave Wraxall is running some kind of a fund raising scam on the premise that he knows something about domes. He worked with CSIDomes for about 3 months during which time he continually demonstrated his incompetence. He gained access to some of our company images and has since used those stolen designs of the Opal Building System (2012) to create a website of clipart called www.habitusbuildingsystems.com.

He has no experience with domes. He has never built a dome. The photos shown on his website were mostly taken by myself. Ken Laughren. The inventor of The Canadian Super Igloo and the inventor of The Opal Building System and the creator of every good image that he shows on his site against my direct instructions.

He even uses my personal photos of classrooms I built in Haiti after the earthquake.

DO NOT give this scammer any money. He has no ability to make the business a reality. He has no place to work from and no skill set to make it a reality. Honestly it will take many millions of dollars to bring a proper manufacturing line to reality.  

Google CSIDomes, Super Igloos, Coverforall, japan dome, UK Foam dome to see real operations. Not just a fundraising scam like Habitus Building Systems that has assembled a bunch of art on a page and both Canada and US numbers forward to the same rented household in Ajax Ontario with NO FACTORY.  And David Wraxall has never been inside a dome factory.   Perhaps has never even been inside a dome.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Rebuttal to this garbage

AUTHOR: Dave - (Canada)

POSTED: Friday, March 15, 2019

The great thing about sites like this, is that they can help protect innocent people from true scammers. The worst thing about sites like this, is that they are not policed, so any deranged idiot can post lies and cause damage to decent people's and companies' reputations, which they are then forced to defend.

What Mr Laughren failed to mention, is that I have a LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT  which he signed, which grants me the rights to market, manufacture and use any and all of his Intellectual Property, including designs and drawings. 

He is in Breach of Contract, as he has refused to honour that agreement. Hence, this rant. He has a track record of behaving in this manner when he can't get his own way. He blames everyone else, for his own self-inflicted shortcomings.

I worked with Mr Laughren, at CSI, for 18 months, not 3 months, as he states. I have ALL of our correspondence which clearly proves that I am 100% correct. In it, he praises me frequently for my stellar work. He did not pay me a cent for 18 months of solid work and instead, I accepted an Exclusive Licensing Agreement in lieu of pay. Mr Laughren subsequently, reneged on that deal. 

He has a track record of using and abusing and not paying his workers. 

Mr Laughren had been seeking funding, unsuccessfully, for around 12 years, when I met him. I rewrote his Business Plan, completely re-designed his promotional materials, among lots of other work, which elevated his company image from one of a hobby business, to that of a global player and I got him approved for funding within 5 months. 

He destroyed this opportunity with his acerbic and unprofessional behaviour, which is clearly evident in this post. When this funder declined to fund him, Mr Laughren then instigated a brutal character assassination campaign against this funder, which was despicable and then, he tried to blame me for the loss of funding. Here he is again. repeating that same pattern.

He told me of a gentleman in Russia he took a $250,000 deposit from, which as far as I know, he has made no attempt to repay. He took a $30,000 deposit from one of our clients and certainly hasn't attempted to repay that, even though he's had over 5 years to do so. I have the invoices signed by Mr Laughren to prove it. There are likely more victims, as this seems to be his pattern of doing business.

I am a veteran sales and marketing professional of over 40 years, with a flawless reputation. I have built and run several of my own companies, one of which, was a high tech company which I co-founded, which was publicly traded and at its peak was worth $500 million on NASDAQ. I was VP of Sales and Marketing and had a staff of 50, reporting to me. This is all provable.

So, I clearly have the qualifications to run a successful business. Since we parted ways, we have thoroughly researched this industry and remedied several flaws in his original concepts and have added many improvements of our own. Nobody can know everything, so for those skills outside of my area of expertise, we have and will continue to hire the right, expert people. We have a brilliant team.

Whereas, Mr Laughren's business has been failing for nearly 20 years, mainly because he is own worst enemy. CSI's website has been down for months. As I understand it, CSI is no longer in business and ownership has been transferred to another company. Mr Laughren is angry at the World, as this clearly post indicates, and he is lashing out. 

If Mr Laughren does not take this post down immediately, then we will pursue all legal remedies, to protect our reputations. There will be serious consequences. He has been slandering us and sending threatening messages an emails. I have the evidence an witnesses to prove this. He was warned not to but posted this drivel anyway. That speaks volumes as to this man's character!

Domes have been around for millennia and we have taken inspiration from many different dome designs and have removed as many inherent flaws as we can, to come up with an as close to perfect design, as we could, to serve mankind. It's a free market, where there are dozens of different TVs, hundreds of different cars etc. The global demand for affordable shelter is astronomical and a thousand companies like ours, would hardly make a dent in it.
