Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Sometime in January 2007, I did introduce Quantum International to Cotton and Western Mining listed on the otc penny stocks.

They went into contract on the 13th of April 2007.
I was made to represent Quantum International as their representative in the Philippines for Mechanical seals and Plasma Tecnology for our garbage lanfills, during this time they also claimed that they were having counter-terrorism programs, my wife and me was then on continuos repo with the Philippine Government and we manage to get a letter from Malacaniang ( Palace of the President) We even got contacts for the company with the Justice Department and the US Embassy with meetings with the RSO.
Mining - Contracts signed with their legal group - Denise Novotny , Valorie Davenport. Numerous contracts were signed but the claimed to have funding of 100 million USD was too good to be true.

They have accumulated legal fees amounting to 3200 US dollars that was left unpaid till now.

I am going to pay for them as soon as I get to Manila, and talk to the other attorney about them.
Right now I need to finish the other contracts concerning the Philippines before I leave Houston.

We have the records that these were the group that came over to the Philippines and we had to bring them to Surigao to entertain them with your false representations that you did have Iron ore in Mexico,Philippines to sell to them you have an LC made out in favor to Quantum International which you could not put together any "iron ore" for sale to this group , please people check this out as your search for Quantum International will be shown on the Internet.You ask for waiver of the 2% Performance Bond on the contract. Now tell me if you had so much money spent " how come you could not bring this group around to your so-called mine sites???? You mjust made use of us to do all this and we had to pay from our own pockets for Transport and food for your guest.

With regards to the legal fees, if there was any dispute you would have confronted this issue sooner not later as you can see from your correspondence that you actually admitted your using the legal firm to work without paying a single cent and as in the email you said that you will settle this as soon as you reach Manila tell me and prove to the world ,How many times have you come to the Philippines since this issue about your Bullshit Funding??? you have another atty Lisa Hartman that also collborates with you on all this so called fundings and we have email with all this written down so do not now point at Rip Off and make your treats as you have dozens of emails set up and start to convince people about your so called big deals even your wife have left you and your son Steven will also do the same knowing that his dad is just a low-life scambag CONMAN.

Totally False Alligations

AUTHOR: Al Johnson - (United States of America)

Mr. Stephen Rodriquez is a liar and totally delusional.  If we knew his address, Quantum would file
criminal charges against him and his associates.  Only in an irresponsible rag like the Rip Off Report would his totally false, unsubstantiated ranting be allowed to slander honest businesses.

The Facts:

1.  Rodriquez was never made to represent Quantum, but requested it, lying about his
industrial connections.   
2.  In the months at this position, as a sales representative, he never sold a single
seal and was fired.
3.  Every project he submitted to us was bogus or required bribes to corrupt Philippine officials. 
4.  Quantum spent months and tens of thousands of dollars on a detailed study of the criminal computer systems for the Justice Department at their request and at no costs.  There never were any contracts.  This could be easily confirmed with the Government if the Rip Off Report had any integrity and would get off their lazy asses. 
5.  A counter terrorism training program was submitted to the Philippine Government, but when Quantum refused to pay bribes to high ranking Philippine officials, it was dropped.
6.  Rodriquez claims for legal fees was nothing but a last final scam after he and his so-called lawyer, who was assisting in his cons, were both fired and blackballed by Quantum and our business associates.

The Facts:

1.  Since firing Stephen Rodriquez, Quantum has been requested to join with various legitimate
Philippine companies to promote Plasma, Bio Fuels and ICF construction systems in the Philippines
and Asia. 
2.  We are currently involved in various Government contracts in which no bribes were
3.  We are currently funding hundreds of millions of dollars in the Philippines to legitimate
Philippine projects and legitimate businessman.  Not criminals, sleaze lawyers and
corrupt politicians, who work with Rodriquez and are apparently supported
by the Rip-Off Report slander.
4.  Quantum has never had any complaint against them, until we refused to be involved with this corrupt party.

While Stephen Rodriquez is a small time Philippine conman who was (and probably still is) attempting to scam and secure payoffs for equally corrupt lawyers and government officials (Many now under criminal investigations with the new government) he is not worth the time to sue. This is not the case with the so called Rip Off Report who has plastered these uninvestigated claims of this crook over the Internet for years.  If Rodriquez claimed I was an escaped n**i killer the Rip Off Report would publish it.  This website is totally malicious and irresponsible and is in fact, the most irresponsible rag on the internet.  Its publisher and staff need to be held accountable for their malicious lies and actions.  The Rip-Off Report is the biggest Rip-Off on the Internet.  If Quantum would have allow ourselves and our investors to be swindled for millions of dollars by this Philippine scam and paid millions to corrupt Philippine officials.that would be okay with the Rip Off Report.  The so-called Rip Off Report report is every bit as criminally responsible as Stephen Rodriquez, his crooked attorney and the corrupt Philippine officials "Rip Off" is supporting.

In Response to the training program for the Philippine Government.

 Quantum made us believed that this was funded by the US Government and it would not cost the  our Government a single cent. ( Have proof on this with emails and filed with the lawyer which you owe the 3200 US dollars).

 You came to the Philippines was because there was appointment set in for you with the Justice Department and in which you submitted contracts that ask for min. 400,000 USD. for you to start these programs through the computer, How on earth do you think that the Government would pay you first and then you can secure funding for these programs? You are a Joke to the Human race.

 Please read the news as you click Quantum International on yahoo see the contract signing with Cotton and Western mining . This was our contact that was put through to you.

 You kept numb about this and said that you signed a non disclosure agreement with them that is why you could not inform me about this.I had to do research on the news to know that you went into contract with them and when I made a fuss about this you promised to pay us 40,000US dollars when the deal goes through as part of our finders fee.

 But sad to say your FUNDING never came and read all about this in investors hub on Cotton and Western Mining stocks.

 Our facts are all documented and filed with lawyers , you tried to wriggle your way out of the contract with Mr Bob Cotton of Cotton and Western Mining and made us be on your side, and that was the biggest mistake that I ever did at that time and with remorse that i do sincerely apologize to Mr. Cotton for not taking his word at that point of time.

 We the people of the Philippines are not Fools to your so-called Plasma are just a Broker in all your Jack of all Trades  deals.

 Be very wary of this Company ..(ALFRED JOHNSON ) .Santa comes knocking on your front door...

There is supported documents in relaying to the PUBLIC and the people of the Philippines on your so called not realistic DREAMS , Contract no.32608 . Signed by Alfred Johnson with our very own top mining company JC Minerals with signatory of Dr. James Chen of the Philippines shows that at all times you knew that the Iron ore content was 46%and the price was at US 18 Dollars per metric Ton.
You have also signed contracts to purchase Iron ore mines  in Surigao and Copper mines in Davao, all these was documented by the lawyer that you ask to represent you with emails that is proof of this transactions.You have made us the stepping stone and penetrated all our contacts here in the Philippines and you can't fund a Burger stand left alone a multi- million project? You have made us go to Surigao with your Chinese parties without a single cent and had to pay for all these expenses on our own. With regards to the Mechanical Seals as explained earlier that the cost is much cheaper here in the Philippines as there are ready Factories that will give on the spot quotations and same day delivery to their long standing customers and for you as a BROKER from Texas to get a quotation takes 3 working days plus delivery and you needed to be paid first on your pricing , you think that we Philipinos are STUPID ? We had to speak frequently with Hotel managers as your bills were left unpaid for long periods of time as you do not even carry a credit card as a CEO of a company, the only thing that you carry is your Beer Belly with your Whiskey attached to your #######.
 I can only Pray that the Lord will be helping you in not to fool around with your so-called funding.

 You can't even pay for a business address that is why you need all these representatives to use their addresses to make your company look like it is really doing business. Clean Air Act does not permit the use of your Plasma plant here as with all your BS about other related projects they are all in your imaginations. As for the layers fee is still unpaid how could you still have the thick skin to move around in Philippines????

#5 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Response to Slanderous Alligations of Filipino Conman Stephen

AUTHOR: Al Johnson - (U.S.A.)

My name is Al Johnson, and I am the CEO and Director of Operations for Quantum International. I met Stephen a mutual associate, when I was looking for a Philippine Seal Distributor for Quantum products produced in Texas.

He took the position, and my company waived the normal requirement of a "performance bond", which was a mistake.

In the months which followed, Stephen advised he had arranged for government contracts, for other products produced by Quantum and our associated companies.
With the promise that my presence was needed in Manila to finish the contracts I flew in for what was supposed to be a week. That was a total lie!

1. The training contract for their police, which was supposed to be ready to sign was a dream. Although the Philippine government wanted the training, they had no money to fund it.

2. An offering for a 48% iron ore mine, produced ore which could not be refined, although Stephen and his associates said this could be done. This lie cost Quantum a fortune.

3. Stephen never sold a single seal, although he got the franchise for nothing.

After he was fired, he advised we owed his attorney $3,200 for sitting in on meetings in which I never invited him, nor was he contracted, as an attorney for Quantum.

The fraudulant actions of Stephen are not representative of businessmen in the Philippines. Quantum is currently working with some brillant parties in which we are doing several Joint Ventures, including Plasma, Wind Power, ICF Systems, Building and other ventures.

If any parties need additional information on this matter, feel free to contact me at Make no mistake about it, Stephen is not involved in any Quantum operations. The only persons defrauded in the Philippines was Quantum International, and I so advised the Philippine Government.

As advised Quantum is still doing business in the Philippines, where it serves as our base of operations for all of our ventures throughout Asia and the Pacific Rim.
