Eric Leavell has collaborated with the Lambros Lawfirm and James and Charles Grant of Hartwell, GA to discredit me. The reason behind this is that first Eric Leavell was extremely sick and second is that I Jerome D Hoffman was married to their mother for 25 blessed years who now has Alzheimers disease at a very advanced
stage. The grand boys were cut out of the will of Janes and my property and the assets are to go to a foundation in Atlanta, GA in the name of the Jane Grant Foundation. Is anticipated that every time my company builds a new store named for Jane Grant called Jane Grant Junior Warehouse Store a half million dollars per store will go to the Foundation. If and when we have an IPO it should be worth ten times this amount.
All complaints on the Rip off Report were written by the same people using different names. They are Eric Leavell and Paul Rinko.
Rebuttal of the Ripoff Report by Eric Leavell.
Eric, were to understand, has been in-and-out of mental hospitals
for the last ten years.
People that know him say that he is psychotic and
potentially very dangerous. There are
two police investigations in Atlanta now taking place about Mr. Leavell.
I have been told that Eric Leavell has been in and out of
mental institutions for a number of years..
I believe he is a sadist psychopath who put this on the Web.
He worked for our company in Atlanta for three months, and
he was paid in full, treated very well, spent a third of his time out of the
office doing therapy, and nothing was deducted for his time out.At the
beginning of the second month, we raised his pay from $30,000 to $50,000 a
year. He was later discharged for cause
of indecent behavior. Whatever his
preference is, that is his business, it is not to be carried out in my office.
Our in-house attorney, Phil Craig, told everyone in the
office to be fearful of him because he thought he could be very dangerous. Eric has said to many people, I am the
meanest son of a b***h alive. He has
stated many times that when he goes out, he will go out with a big bang,
whatever that means.
Eric has done this to other people as well, I have been
told, including an executive of Walmart. There are two police investigations
taking place in Atlanta over Eric Leavell at this time. Shortly there will be a very extensive report
published on the Web of his activities done by a private detective agency.
What this is all about, is that my wife, Jane Grant, for
twenty-five years invested in my companies over the years. She has not talked to her sons, Charles and
James Grant, for over two years, because she said, They are only after my
An agreement was made in Probate Court, Fulton County, Georgia,
that her sons would get none of the money from the investment in my company. Jane
and I have an agreement that we would give our share to a Foundation to the
good people of Atlanta, which could amount to Tens of Millions of Dollars or
Charles and James Grant, Janes sons, by her first marriage,
hired Eric Leavell in one form or another, to discredit me. Shortly, there will be on the Web, a two
thousand page document explaining in great detail with court papers this whole
One of Eric Leavells cohorts is Paul Rinko,
attorney-at-law. I would like to quote
one of his e-mails to me, plus, three mails from Eric Leavell to me that will
explain his psychotic behavior.
One can see that Eric has severe problems. Eric has done this to others, and they will
testify in Court when litigation begins.
Janes sons, Charles and Jimmy, put Eric Leavell up to this. We have a complete history of Eric Leavell,
from his fraudulent bankruptcy, and much more.
Creditors are prepared to testify about Mr. Leavell. We have some thirty e-mails from Mr. Leavell,
which I would like to print the text of three which will tell you his mental
Paul J. Rinko, a licensed attorney in the State of New
York, registration number 2365211, formerly with the Kiley Law Firm, Utica, New
York, has written me over seventy e-mails in the past three years, and is a
collaborator of Eric Leavell. I would
like to quote from one of Paul Rinkos e-mails, and the others can be brought
up on this Website which is now being organized. some two thousand pages.
Note: We have not
displayed email addresses due to the rules of the website. But the following testimonials
provide examples of events that have taken place. They all have been verified.
Get on your knees b*****d, I am your Master, you are my Slave. You will obey me. I will not let you become successful.
I will hunt you down for the
rest of your life. You will obey
me. This is what you get for suing
If Mr. Rinko feels that this is not true, why doesnt he
He knows that there are about seventy similar
e-mails. Mr. Rinko is an attorney now
living in Richmond, Virginia, working for his brothers firm, which is Colonial
Scientific, Inc., 2121 Hamilton Street, #1, Richmond, Virginia. He is vice president of the corporation. A copy of this e-mail was sent to his
brother, his former law firm, and others.
I have sent all seventy of his e-mails to fifty State Bar
Associations, and asked if it is the proper behavior of an attorney who may
wish to obtain a license in your state.
The response from the Bar Associations were astounding
that an attorney licensed in NY could send approximately 70 emails over a 3 year
period that are sexually an d sadistically and masochistically phrased.
We are now going to present a number of e-mails from Eric
Leavell, which I believe will explain his mental state and our rebuttal.

After careful thought and serious
consideration, I am tendering my two week notice and resignation; my last day
with the company will be February 10, 2012.
I had every intention of making a
career with GFH/Todays Market and still believe you will redefine the retail
food industry, however I can no longer be part of this company and your vision.
Unfortunately, the events of
today compounded by the conversation tonight at 10:15pm lead me to one
conclusion; our boundaries became,
at some point, so muddled that it
will only continue to erode our working relationship and I want to leave before
continue to fully perform my role for you during the next two weeks and assist
with the transition in any and all ways possible. If you wish for me to leave at an earlier
date, then I will respect that request.
Please know that I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me; I
learned a tremendous amount from you in a short time. I was also thrilled with the 45% raise you
gave me in my first 30 days.
However, neither of those can overcome the
increasingly derogatory and demeaning conversations that are becoming regular
interactions within the office.
I am not sure if you ever listen to the words
you say to me, but I find it offensive.
For example, you will ask me to hold off on
sending an email and then go into a tirade an hour later about the email not
being sent or tell me to send one specific piece of information to a person and
then go into a tirade that other information should have been sent even though
you were specific that only one piece of information be sent and it is never
your practice to send supplemental information to individuals.
There was also the time you
were reading a copy of a sent email that I typed from your dictation and stormed
into my office telling me that
by inadvertently adding the
word then to a sentence that I am re-writing your entire email and that my
job should be replaced by someone more talented in New York.
There have also been
incidents when you tell me that if I use a particular job board again that
I will be fired and then spend 10 minutes
belittling me when I ask you if you want to use that job board after you were
clear to never use it again.
In no way do I claim to be perfect you helped
show me many ways that I could do a task in a better way I simply dont have
the fortitude to keep enduring this treatment.
There is no waiting job for
me. I tender this resignation will enter
the unemployed masses; I will remain unemployed for however long it takes to
find another job.
In fact, there is a good
chance that I will make less in my next job, but some things are not about
money and, this is one of those times.
I will let you tell whomever
in whatever timeline you wish about my departure. I will not discuss this with work
colleagues. I copied Phil on this email
so he may prepare whatever exist paperwork you wish for me to review and sign
prior to my last day.
Obviously, I will respect the
terms of the Confidentiality Agreement and have nothing disparaging to say
about the company or anyone associated with it so will have no issue signing
additional paperwork to that effect.
It was a hard decision to say
goodbye to this opportunity, but in my heart I knew it would be harder for me
Best of luck with Todays
It was on January 27, that I found Eric
Leavell having oral sex in the office and told him this could not
continue. What is his preference is his
business, but not in the company office.
It is my understanding that
the Marshall served you with a summons at Janes house (not your home since you
never contribute any money to the home as you are a loser and financial
failure) to appear on May 21, 2012, in Fulton County Court
for the Criminal Warrant
Hearing with regard to the matter I reported and your statement to me that you
were going to get me Stacie confirms that the summons is at the house.
Also I wanted to share with
you that I contacted the Chinese Embassy, reported your outstanding warrant
number, sent over a copy of the police report
itemizing your theft as well
as the US Court of Appeals verdict holding you personally liable for more than
$500,000 in claims so that you could not get a visa to talk with Chinese
Since you only have 600 a month to live on
from Social Security what a joke I didnt think it was fair for you to
waste a visa application fee for no reason.
You are a model to the world
in how to avoid failure by doing the exact opposite of whatever choice you
make. Maybe that is your one purpose and
contribution to life.
Anyone can put anything on
the web. In your case its all true.
PS I also sent over the
excerpt from your deposition in the appeal in which you state the business has
no money and no credit line therefore violating the two key provisions for
having a business visa to solicit investors. Ha!

three years ago, when I had a physical fight with the anchor man, Randy Travis,
which is on tape, facilitated by Paul Rinko.
Mr. Travis tried to break-in to our office forcing the door open and I
kicked him in the groin.
He had no right to come on to
our property and force the door open. Court records, Cobb County Superior

And the other story, a few
months ago, which Eric Leavell helped facilitate, which is described in his
e-mail to me quoted in this document. At
that time, I had another physical encounter with Randy Travis, the reporter on
Fox News, who swore out a warrant for my arrest.
Mr. Travis is some thirty
years younger than me. I might point out
that this was a misdemeanor under Georgia law and not a criminal act. He reported on the news that I was a
Randy Travis stalked me with
a cameraman for over two hundred yards when I was going to a garage to pick up
my care, he stated in Court that I broke his camera.
The reason I am stating these
two incidents of Fox News is that they are famous for this type of reporting in
this country and abroad. The scandal of
London is now the scandal in the USA.

News Corporation, which owns Fox News, I believe is a decent and fair man, and
he is set about cleaning up the scandal reporting that has taken place in his

this up, and the reporting of his other companies in America.
