I need to alert people because I am one of the many victims of Mike Dolan – Smithfield Productions and his now partner Alfred J. Zaccagnino – Samarian Productions, pathological liars. I unfortunately fell victim of them, masquerading as financiers and producers, which they are none of the above. For several months they have promised me to finance my two projects: "Mary, Mother of The Christ" and "Keeper of the Pinstripes". After all this time of spending money on them and their fake promises and contracts with terms they will not and cannot keep, my films are not yet finance. Now seems they want to steal from me both projects, claiming even in the media, that they are the real Producers and Financiers, when they clearly know is me. Please do not waste your money and time that you've put in on your movie projects by handing anything with them. Save your money, yourself, and a potential headache. Don't do business with these shysters, Mike Dolan and Alfred J. Saccagnino.

So what was the outcome of this? These are some serious allegations but just because something gets written on the internet doesn't mean it's true.

That goes for the response also. Anyone can say they're going to discredit and sue someone.

Please let me know. What's up with the movie?


This bogus report has come up from time to time over the last three years and my company has recently decided to take a stand against those humans like the original blogger who grossly misrepresent and flat-out lie to the public through these internet blogging sites. One thing you need to understand dear (assuming you're a woman) is that the justice system is in place to protect those people who are treated unfairly in life. If someone caused you harm or loss, file a lawsuit and the complaint and subsequent court correspondence will be public record for all to see. Although, from our findings, you may be better suited in a different type of institution.

Through high-level research over the last 45 days we have recently received information on who you are. You lack evidence and material data to your claims, mainly because you have no data or material evidence to back your claims. There are many like yourself who "hide" behind the internet and these "blogs", and unfortunately, there are sites available like "ripoffreport" that allow cowards like yourself an ability to "hide" behind false claims with the basis of the claim being verbal jargon.

On the other hand, we at Samarian Productions, including Mike Dolan, indeed have all that we need to in the form of evidence which will take you off the streets for libel and defamation.

To those who read this entertaining piece, including the poster of a comment on December 15, 2010, our advice is to use your better judgement and look for filings in the United States Justice System that will put an end to postings of this type (as related to Samarian, Mike, and Alfred, who are the factual rights holders and responsible financiers to said projects). Most businessmen are smart enough to not put weight into blogs with no evidence and/or material data.

Thank you,



Unfortunately, I'm not seeing this posting until already involved with these individuals. It's hard to tell if what the author of this posting says is true or if what they say is true.

They seem legit but maybe just lies as the author suggests. To the author...

how can I get in touch with you to learn more about the specific circumstances. Please help save me from the drama!


as a team we are aware of who wrote this and have been able to trace back this particular individual and IP address. We are taking steps to prosecute this person for impersonating team members on both of these movies.

This person will be aware this soon. Both Mike Dolan and Alfred Zaccagnino were NEVER asked to finance either of these movies from us and I continue to work with them as they are of the highest caliber individuals. As rights holders to MARY MOTHER OF CHRIST and as a person that is blessed to work on KEEPER OF THE PINSTRIPES with Alfred Zaccagnino, not only is the above false but since we now know the person who wrote this tried to discredit them... what the person did not know is the Zaccagnino owns KEEPER not me so obviously not us.

This shows that this has no validity. It is sad when people have to try to hurt others that have worked so tirelessly so hard and with the utmost professional committment to bring them down.

Mike Dolan and Alfred Zaccagnino are honest, trustworthy. Luckily both of these projects are being financed now and we all remain friends and partners.
