SO GLAD they moved OUT of Bethel. They were very obnoxious people and very big on themselves. I had a run in with her and boy she is "nasty" and more than Bit-h. They deserve what they get!! Yet she still runs a business!! How is that? Feel sorry for anyone who does business with them.

it's a shame for you gossiping hags that her last name doesn't sound Latino, then you could REALLY waste a morning.

Wow to the ripoff report!! Interesting. These people are swindlers and liars. Hope they do not get away with it in Maine. Obviously they are doing some lying up there as well.

This woman is an elitist snob that makes her money cheating others. She is not a nice person, she has the personality of a rabid pitbull, and she deserves every bit of heartache she is having thrown upon her! She should be banned from owning ANY company.

What do you expect from someone selling these kinds of products.

Herbal rememdies do not work!

And, who would be stupid enough to put something in their mouth which is not under the sanitary and process controls dictated by the FDA!

Time for someone to close down the whole industry and get rid of these quacks.

I wonder how many remember when the Danbury Health and Racket Club went out of business? Customers lost a lot of many. At the time the state of Connecticut had a Consumer Department that dealt with health clubs. All health clubs had to contribute to an escrow account. When DHRC went out of business, the state said oops, we're sorry. You only get 10% back. Gotta love the system.

She invited a Bethel Club into her home and made her sales pitch. Fellow Bethel Moms trusted her and her herbal knowledge. Then, we were hit with the endless orders and bills that kept coming even after we delivered the certified letter she required for cancelling. She followed that up with nasty voice mail messages to all the Moms in the club that cancelled. Telling us we would get sick and die of cancer if we did not use her herbs. She is rude, obnoxious and a very dishonest business person. Bethel is glad to be rid of her. We only feel sorry for the entire State of Maine now. I hope all who got taken by her, get what is rightfully owed to them. I hope justice will be served and she is put out of business before she can prey upon anymore trusting souls.
Good ridance Valerie!!!!

"Many of Hawk-Hoffman's customers claim that as they were leaving they were given baskets filled with herbal medicine and were asked to sign blank pieces of paper on which they were told to write down their credit card information. "

Aside from paying back the people she ripped off she should spend some time in jail. A little different from the "Mt Vernon" house. This witch lived in the neighborhood and asked my daughter to babysit her twins. One the two occasions which Jan babysat she was told by Valerie that her bookeeper would mail her a check ( total $ 80). Guess what no check ever came. When Valerie was confronted on this situation she responded by saying Jan was " in training" to see if it would be a good fit for her twins ( who I feel sorry for)( DCF show probably look into that family)
