Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant.
Dismissal of Michael T. Studer CPA P.C.
On December 31, 2012, the Company dismissed Michael T. Studer CPA P.C. (“Studer”) as its principal independent accountant. Studer’s report on the Company’s financial statements for the past two years did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, except that Studer indicated on his Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm on his audit report as of May 31, 2011 and 2012 that the Company’s present financial situation raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The Board of Directors approved the decision to dismiss Studer as the Company’s principal independent accountant. During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years and through the date of Studer’s dismissal, there were no disagreements with Studer on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Studer, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement(s) in connection with its report.
As of the date of this Current Report, the Company has provided Studer with a copy of the disclosures it is making in response to this Item 4.01. The Company has requested that Studer furnish, and Studer has furnished, a letter addressed to the SEC stating whether it agrees with the statements made by the Company in response to this Item 4.01 of this Current Report and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree (the “Studer Letter”). A copy of the Studer Letter is filed as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report.
Engagement of Daszkal, Bolton, LLP

Item 8.01 Other Events.
The Company has recently been informed alleged unauthorized transactions regarding sales of our Common Stock. Several of these transactions have now been reversed. In conjunction with this, we have also learned that someone who was not authorized by the Company allegedly may have induced an investor to wire him money on a promise to receive shares of our Common Stock. We are in the process of investigating this claim. The Company was not a party to this, did not receive any proceeds from this alleged incident, and the alleged investor has not provided us with any documentation that would indicate that our shares of common stock were involved. We are told the amount in dispute is $100,000. We are in the process of contacting the Securities and Exchange Commission to let them know what has allegedly transpired, and to assist in any way possible. To date we are not aware of any litigation concerning the foregoing.
