To whom it may concern;
This report is intended to serve as notice to all unsuspecting employee and customers that may come across this organization and this individual. Mr. Blair Holland, First of all, this individual hire employees and sent them to China for training, but he never reported our income to the IRS, he deducted our Federal, state, Medicare , and local taxes, but never filed or reported them to the authorities. We never received a W-2 for our time of employed with the company.
Secondly, we were left without pay for two months of our employment, as he disappeared into thin air and we found ourselves without a job and no one to claim against. 
Thirdly, we found that this person, Blair Holland, took money from customers, in advance of product shipment from the OEM factory in China, and left them without a refund and without product.
Lastly, this person, Blair Holland, still owes the Manufacturing Company in China “OPTICHINA”, over 250,000 USD, whom was the OEM manufacturer he used to supply him his materials and goods, and he never paid for. [continued below]....
.....
We have copies of the Florida Corporation documents for this organization, and plenty of ex employees and companies affected on record for who ever would like to do their due diligence against this company and / or individual. Also direct contact with OPTICHINA as the China Manufacturer since OPFIBRE is nothing more than a SCAM Reseller…
Feel fre to contact us as need for your support if you have also have been scamed by this company or individual. Please also see:  http://www.ripoffreport.com/credit-card-processing-companies/first-national-bankc/first-national-bankcard-servic-wdbb3.htm Since he has done this before to other people in another Florida Company.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Employed under false pretense

AUTHOR: Anon - ()

I was also scammed by Mr. Blair Holland, and although I may not have lost as much as other individuals I was wondering where I could contact other individuals who have also been scammed. After this bad experience with Mr. Holland, I researched him and found that he also took away my taxes without reporting it to the IRS. I know what his current projects are and want to avoid further people getting robbed. 

Feel free to contact me for any support or for any info on this individual:  (((redacted)))

#2 General Comment

OPF operates in China, so it can treat it's employees like the slaves the Chinese citizens already are.

AUTHOR: NotFooled - (United States of America)

Let me refute the above rebuttal by Mr. Ben Rogers (who, by his name, is claiming to be an English-first speaker, but I guess you must have made one of your little harem write this foryou, eh Blair? Either that, or you're just not the MENSA genius that you claim to be!) claim by claim.

Claim 1: "I have worked for OPF...for 3 years."

Fact: FALSE for 2 reasons: A) It's OpFibre, Inc, not OPF. Geez, you moron! Get the name of your own scam straight!  B) The company was not incorporated until early 2010. Come on, genius! Even I can to that math!

Claim 2: "The ex-employee was let go and started his own company."

Fact: FALSE. It's pretty obvious that you're not sure which pissed-off employee wrote the original report, because you're describing several of them, hoping you'll land on the right one. None of the original 4 (can't even remember how many people you were scamming?) currently owns or operates their own company, nor have they in the last year.

Claim 3: "1) Airfair paid for 2) Visa paid for 3) and food and hotels paid for for the months trained in china. over $25, 000 usd was invested in training. Each rep received a ($2, 000 usd bonus) 15, 000 RMB stipend."

Fact: False. While airfare (nice spelling!) was paid for, by someone other than Blair Holland and never reimbursed, the visas were not paid for, were not even applied for when the new hires arrived in Hong Kong. Hotel stays were paid for, and some meals, however breakfasts and dinners, as well as cabfare, was paid for by the employees, themselves. No employee received any bonus, stipend or otherwise, while in China. In fact, the new hires flew to China on Feb 24th, 2010 and returned March 19th, 2010 and did not receive any monies until April, 2010.

Claim 4: "At the end of the training only 2 of the 5 reps were chosen to continue with the job, based on performance and ability."

Fact: FALSE. After the 4 (moron) new hires returned to the States in March, all 4 were left hanging in the balance while you, (Blair) tried to use some kind of Jedi mind-trick psychology on them, while you decided how much money you'd actually have to give them as a salary. One of the new hires was sent to work in South America, therefore, you thought you would only have to pay him the going rate as appropriate to that region, instead of the going rate in the U.S., where you hired him. 3 of them remained in the States, but you tried to put the moves on the female employee, and she rejected you, so you fired her the next day. So, yes, someone was fired, but not for the reasons you claim. That left 2 male employees in your Kissimmee office, both of whom were given woefully inadequate salaries for the job description. Oh, and you never paid them on time!

Claim 5: ...after unable to find another job he went to try to partner with a another Chinese company and try to take clients and to try to disrupt the companies operations."

Fact: FALSE. No one partnered with "A another Chinese company", (Holy Cow! Did JasLin type this, or are you just that stupid?). OpFibre's parent company, OptiChina (You remember them? Paul Lee owns it, and you stole money and goods to the tune of $250,00 from him. Pretty sure that the Chinese government has a stake in that company, so I hope for your sake, you stay well hidden in some rat hole in Asia, or they will make you suffer.) Mr. Lee decided that since you were lying and stealing from him, to stop funding your fraudulent little endeavor, and created a new company in the U.S. for him to sell the goods created in his factories. As for taking clients, I can only imagine that you running up random charges on your customer's credit cards without authorization was enough for them to run screaming in the other direction.

I'm not even going to touch that last paragraph, as it is entirely false. I'm guessing that the IRS doesn't know anything about those "dozens of employees", but they do now know that OpFibre, Inc employed several United States citizens, paid them, took taxes out of their paychecks, yet FAILED to pay those taxes into the IRS treasury. What happened, Blair? Did you just get complacent? Sloppy? Overly impressed with your own supposed genius? You left a paper trail from here to China, and it's going to catch up to you sooner or later. Until then,  Nunca discutas con una persona imbecil, te hara descender a su nivel y alli te ganar por experiencia! Try to take your own advice.

#3 UPDATE Employee

OPF treats employees well

AUTHOR: Ben Rogers - (United States of America)

I have worked for OPF and Mr. Holland for 3 years. Yes I know the employee who wrote this and I think it is unfair representation. This ex employee was let go of the company and later started his own company to try to compete. Yes there were 5 sales reps, flown into China to visit factories. 1) Airfair paid for 2) Visa paid for 3) and food and hotels paid for for the months trained in china. over $25, 000 usd was invested in training. Each rep received a ($2, 000 usd bonus) 15, 000 RMB stipend. At the end of the training only 2 of the 5 reps were chosen to continue with the job, based on performance and ability. It is unfortunate that the company made the decision to keep only 2, and in a time of low underemployment levels I could understand the bitterness of this rep. It left him with only one choice, after unable to find another job he went to try to partner with a another Chinese company and try to take clients and to try to disrupt the companies operations.

One of the things that I understand is that in a large company, with many employees there will always be that one rep that is unhappy due to not receiving a promotion or being let go. If you have any concerns or questions feel free to contact our PR department in us or me personally Ben.Rogers@

This site allows each time an employees gets fired or misses a promotion, to can vent or seek revenge. I think unfairly because the information is inaccurate. this representation is not acurate and I am certain is is not true about owing a supplier owing money, this is the ex employees new company and this is his marketing strategy to try to steal clients away and destroy reputation. I think honestly if you are considering to partner with OPF, it is a good idea. We have dozens of employees that happily work for the firm, I am amongst them. I see on this site hundreds of fortune 500 companies with employee complaints, but many times they are angry rep for loosing his position. If you have any questions about the company or its methods of treating employees, feel free to contact the hr department or Pr department or Me directly..
