No she is not related to Hoffman fuel. I knew who they were. Her and her husband were from westport. He claims to be a great historic replica builder and a drunk at that. Arrested after hitting a telephone pole on wolfpit rd in Bethel, which was in the news. All they kept doing was putting huge articles in the news times on how rich they were (owned house in Palm Beach florida) and divulged other things. Think they were trying to show how great they were and rich(by ripping others off).Valerie hoffman and Her husband of HAWK builders should both be put in Jail. Her name is Valerie Hoffman HAWK (beware) What pathetic people!!

I am one of the consumers owed money and I would like to add, That Valeries is a mean and nasty person. I could not believe what she put me through. My receipt is an ordinary receipt from Visa. It does not say auto ship! Also I told her
three times not to put me on autoship. She hears only what she wants to and she forges names. She
belongs in jail and put out of business.

I would like to add a comment about the person who mention DCF, yes they should look into this family. The children are abused! I witnessed it.
She is mentally disturbed and is very
dangerous.

just to clarify her name is Valerie Hawk Hoffman. Her husband I believe is David Hoffman. Think he built with her side of the family, they were in it together .Something like that.

In life its often hard to admit when we are wrong but in this case I must suck it up and admit I was wrong about the Hoffmans and the company Ms Hoffman runs. I reported on the hearing you see and when I read all the documents I felt ashamed and embarrased as the reality of this is that the policies of the herb farm were those dictated by Consumer Protection themselves-it was really ironic when I heard the testimony of the ONLY client who had shown up to the hearing and saw her humiliate herself and then break down admitting she DID actually sign up for the Auto Ship program and was simply angry as she forgot to cancel....it really put a light on for me and when I read more and more about this case it was pathetic how people jumped to conclusions and clearly were so jealous of the lovely home the couple had as that kept being mentioned over and over-how is that relevant to the case!? The reality is no one was just put on an Automatic shipping program-they signed up themselves-and when I checked the website Ms Hoffman was right its written all over it ( and on her booklet and receipt too)-page after page and I couldn’t even check out on the website without agreeing to it-it is far from deceptive and unclear as people tried to claim and truthfully why did people ( unless they were jealous of a young successful couple ) make such a big deal out of an Auto Ship program case-its a very common thing out there these days. In addition, when I read more I realized they are a simply hard working family and were really treated like crap I must say by a very few small minded and I might add very rude individuals.... the things written by it turns it out ONLY 3 individuals were beyond cruel and as a learned very false.. I am not at all surprised it turned out the complaints were an 70 % less than 8th what was claimed and that the judge sided with the Hoffmans....NOW the State of Ct has bought themselves a huge lawsuit it turns out as I read the documents and the Hoffmans are suing them in 2 states to the tune of 6 million dollars-good for them!

I met this wonderful family and the they are strong loving family who have been through a lot over a few apparently VERY jealous people...what ashame people are so awful...God Bless the Hoffmans for their loving family network and thousands of clients who love them. I became a client after reporting on their suit and I can tell you this is an honest hardworking family who are victims not villans...

I was at the hearing and Ms Hoffman was RIGHT all along...the State only had this one witness who would show up and she crumbled on the stand ADMITTING she did indeed sign up for the Auto Ship program Ms Hoffman has gotten slack over-she also admitted she was told the policies on the paperwork and the invoice AND that even Ms Hoffman told her...I felt so bad for saying the cruel things I did about Ms Hoffman as I saw she was just following her policies and that the clients are just liars trying to get out of paying for goods they signed up for. I WAS a bit confused all along I must say as when I reported on this I did notice you cannot even check out of the website without agreeing to Auto Ship and it IS noted in like 5 places.. I think based on all the comments people make about her home the reality is these people are just jealous and I am humiliated I was a part of it. I wrote and apologized to the family and am happy to hear the judge sided with them, made fools of the state and that they are now suing for over 6 million! Good for them! What they have been put through is horrible...I read the AG in that state Blumenthal was voted as the TOP Worst AG in the country and that he has 23,000 similar pending suits...he cares about nothing but money it seems and will destroy people to get it...scary. ps I was just told that over 9000 business's may sue the AG for doing the same thing to them in some class action suit-oh boy! Bet Ct wished they had just settled with the Hoffman's...

I have already contacted the CT Attorney General about the slander Valerie is putting on the internet about their At. General. I don't know if they will be able to track her email addresses, but hopefully they can put a stop to it. Someone needs to help them stop this distructive path.
