I am submitting this complaint concerning Khalsa Mc Brearty accountancy in hopes you can stop them from continuing to defraud the public.We have been trying to resolve this situation for 2 years.
Operation Education, Inc hired the accounting firm Khalsa Mc Brearty, The owners Johda Khalsa and Bill Mc Brearty sent representatives (their sons Guru Khalsa and Brad Mc Brearty) into this newly started business, Operation Education, Inc. They spoke with several sales people, managers, and staff gathering Operation Education's confidential data to help the firm run better. This was under the cover of the company CPA's. giving Operation Education, Inc financial advice, marketing, sales, business planning,projections,tax planning, tax prep, sales, CPA expertise, counselling, etc.
Operation Education started a business providing an education program to assist active duty soldiers to get their associates degree while they were still on active duty. Along with that we provided laptops and other electronics.
Guru Khalsa and Brad Mc Brearty of Khalsa Mc Brearty accountancy, were brought into the Operation Education offices as trusted advisers and employees of Khalsa Mc Brearty accountancy. They took all of Operation Education's forms, power point presentation, sales agreements, sales presentation, business plan, forms, marketing ideas, cash flow statements,etc. (see affidavits) They spoke with the sales staff, marketing staff, and management. They ended up using the exact same information for their own benefit and destroying Operation Education.
Within 90 days Khalsa Mc Brearty contacted our sales managers and persuaded them to breach their contacts and go to work for them. The sales managers new Khalsa Mc Brearty was Operation Educations Trusted adviser's and C.P.A.'s. Based upon the knowledge that Khalsa Mc Brearty had all of Operation Educations confidential information, new about their non compete clause, their confidentially clause in their written contracts, and they were told by Khalsa Mc Brearty that they had "NO risk" if they breached their contract with Operation Education, they did.
Operation Education's CPA firm, Khala Mc Brearty analysed the confidential information that was provided to them as trusted advisers.They provided us with a spread sheet projection that Operation Education would net $22,000,000 over a 5 year time frame. From there on they wanted Operation Education for themselves. They offered to come in as 50/50 partners and provide such things as accounting and marketing. We went back and forth over the unethical proposal. They told Operation Education's consultant that they were having hard times and needed cash flow desperately. We did not make a deal and this destroyed our relationship.They had all of Operation education's confidential information and financial documents and went forward and used them for their own benefit.
Soon after, (see affidavits) they contacted Operation Education's marketing and sales directors while they were still working for Operation Education, Inc. and lured them away. We have affidavits from Operation Educations former sales director, Eliot Pierce and Ryan Williamson, that Khalsa McBrearty' had our confidential information, wanted to start their own business from the information they had received from Operation Education when they were Operation Education's CPA's and trusted CPA's and financial advisers.
Khalsa Mc Brearty accountancy couldn't figure out how Operation Education sold the program They needed Operation Education's sales directors to teach them how to sell and market the program. Our CPA;s went into a partnership with our marketing and sales directors even though the CPA's new the marketing and sales directors were under a non compete and non disclosure agreement. Our CPA's did this while they knew Operation Education, Inc while was in good faith settlement discussions concerning the marketing and sales directors breach of contact.
Our CPA's, their employee;s and their family members defrauded and destroyed Operation Education, Inc. All of our trained sales staff left. At least three other of our sales went to work with our CPA's, employee's and their families. We have all of their affidavit's that state that our CPA's, their employee's and family members are doing the exact business, using the exact sales presenation, exact power point presentation, using the exact paper work same as what our CPA's, their employee;s and family members stole from Operation Education,Inc as trusted CPA's and advisers. We were left broke and $250,000 of start up debt. Our CPA's, their employee;s and theirs families went out and duplicated Operation Education's business plan.
This is a letter that was sent to them.
