Dear Ms. Holzinger,
It was brought to my attention that you have been defaming my character, written false information and altering news articles regarding my bid for the Lancaster Press Building to assassinate my character, calling me a con man on your written articles and outright slander.
Your lies, false information, character defamation have already caused my company and I to lose 2 significant real estate projects that I can prove and that is absolutely NOT acceptable.
This is a formal legal notice to cease and desist, remove all harmful and malicious false written articles or I will press legal charges immediately on Slander and defamation of character.
Harry Eng, Executive Managing Director
Atlantis New York Group, Inc.

FOR THE RECORD
Neither Mayor Gray nor City Hall in Lancaster called me a con man. (You can be charged additionally with fraudulently doctoring articles in your efforts to defame my character as well as slander).
If you keep up with the news in Lancaster, you will see that I have NOT been charged with any wrong doing and that the Con Man is my ex-partner Kevin Gleaton who presented a false financial bank instrument as my financial backer for the redevelopment of the Lancaster Press Building that was exposed by Mayor Gray at a public hearing.
Kevin Gleaton in now under arrest for the many con games he solely has orchestrated on all innocent parties.
I am an innocent victim that went into Lancaster with a real world class team with all GOOD intentions to turn a dilapidated old eye sore building in a great location to a world class mix-use trophy site that all residents of Lancaster can be proud of while creating thousands of NEW jobs and improving the security of the neighborhood through urban renewal vision.
I myself was in the dark just like all parties in Lancaster until Mayor Gray exposed my ex-partner Kevin Gleaton for whom he really is.
As far as my past incident 21 years ago, I have already paid the ultimate debt to society with 8 years of my life and who are you to judge me?
You have already caused me much embarrassment, pain and financial losses on significant real estate projects based on your 100% baseless allegations and I can prove this in a court of law with facts as these individuals pointed to your written articles and your website.
You can comply and remove all the malicious, false accusations that you have written and altered on your website or I will press charges without hesitation.
