I am the exectrix of this ongoing Estate of Jean F. Mateson. My father left a company all all of the assets from his lifetime in his company. He died in 1992 and I have been pursuing a re evaluation of this estate since then. I have documentation and referenced to documents that no assets of any value were included in the VALUE. This would encompass trademarks, formulas and all intellectual property rightfully belonging to the "heirs" The present 'President" has singlehandedly managed to terrorize all of the other owners into accepting some kind of pay off.

They are listed, as my sister as a Director or the Vice President, but has pursued many other careers since then and admits she hasn't had anything to do with the present operations, although I understand she receives compensation and full benefits from the company.

I have terrorized by this now president and his " high paid attorney". They have done everything to me including to and not limited to terrorizing my attorney, who was just asking for the simple treatment and respect for me as a shareholder. They put together a law suit bring suit against me for frivolous things that occurred during the operations of the estate, whereby I was trying to expose the criminal behaviour in the final estimate of the estate. (I have all documents to back up my statements)

The now President is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to terrorize me, without the courtesy of any financials or allowing me access to property I am part owners to. The 1025 East Montgomery Ave. Phil. Pa. every time I try to gain access they have called the police and filed against me once again frivolous law suits.( I have not received any financials about the company and am denied any access to the books and records)I REFUSED TO DO MY TAXES WITHOUT MY RECORDS AND DON'T BELIEVE I SHOULD. No records ever supplied to me!

I am presently FILED in The Supreme Court of Appeals asking to be heard on the true merits of my case. I have been denied due process in the lower courts because I believe the Judge is involved. As I have been told by a large amount of lawyers this Attorney is " wired" to this judge. Can you imagine in this century we are denied access to the court system to be heard, because the other PARTY IS USING YOUR MONEY TO KEEP YOU TIED UP IN LITIGATION UNJUSTLY! This needs to be exposed and this guy running my company needs to be put in jail. He has also threatened the lives of anyone who gets involved including a CPA as I was told !

I am presently unemployed and have asked for assistance to help pay my bills, why in this free world is this "person" allowed to continue driving the most expensive cars, buying million dollar homes and I am passed off and threatened if I try and get what belongs to me? I need help exposing this "fraud"!

Setting the record straight on behalf of the company.

AUTHOR: Mateson Chemical Corporation - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, September 17, 2008
Re: Report # 359790
Hello. If you are reading this, you have been exposed to a letter written by a woman named Stephanie. The purpose of our letter is to set the record straight on behalf of Mateson Chemical Corporation (MCC), its stockholders, employees, clients, and vendors.
Firstly, be assured that MCC is the same solid company we always have been. We are an environmentally minded organization with a strict policy of integrity and ethics. This is where the problems with Stephanie began.
Stephanie was fired from MCC for cause in late 1997. She had stolen tens of thousands of dollars from the company. At the time, she was an owner of company stock, along with her brothers and sister, in a closely held family business. That meant she had stolen money from her own company and her own family. The system worked; she was caught, fired and our business went on seamlessly. There were no criminal charges filed.
Stephanie no longer owns stock in MCC as she claims in her writings pursuant to the findings of the case to which she refers. She simply has retained voided stock certificates because she continues to evade the Wilmington Sherriff's Department charged to retrieve them, as verified by their reports.
She is no longer an executrix for the estate of J.F. Mateson either, because the estate was closed and settled by her and her family with all needed signatures, including hers, in the early 1990's. If the estate were not closed, she and her family would have not had stock to begin with. The company is now more diversified in ownership and steps have been taken to safeguard the future stability of the company stock.
It is true that we have spent a lot of money on legal and court fees to defend ourselves against Stephanie's legal onslaughts. We would much rather have put those lost funds into employee pay increases or retirement accounts. We were forced to effectively respond to the frivolous lawsuits she and her lawyers have been able to conjure up as a cost of doing business. We have settled this matter over and over in the courts, as evidenced by each successive ruling.
We noticed Stephanie did not use names in the text of her writing. Her lawyers probably incorrectly told her it was not defamatory that way. We will be following up on that with proper legal action immediately. We at MCC accept our duty to the future, for our clients, ownership, employees, and vendors to defend our company from outside malevolent factors, as all companies do.
This report seems to be a reaction of an obviously disturbed individual, still bitter about her justified termination almost 12 years ago. Be assured MCC, its employees, and, or its vendors have not been involved in any payoffs to stockholders or judges as she alleges. There have been no threats to our CPA (President of the CPA ethics division), no fraud, and no terrorizing of anyone either. These claims are untrue and have been written simply to besmirch the good name of MCC. We can only assume that her report is borne out of frustration, due to her own unethical and illegal actions in the past.
We also suggest she go ahead and file her taxes. She has received all the information and documentation she needs in a timely manner to file her taxes, as all our employees have.
In closing we would like to reiterate that Mateson Chemical Corporation is doing fine and its product lines are still the ultimate in quality, performance, and value. Please feel free to see for yourself at www.matesonchemical.com.

Mateson Chemical Vindicated BY COURT RULING

AUTHOR: Attorney For Mateson Chemical - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Monday, September 08, 2008
The ridiculous article written by Stephanie under report 359790 has been deemed by the appellate court in Pennsylvania to be totally false. (This decison was entered under docket number July term 2005 , number 1180 and affirmed by the appellate court under Superior court docket 2237 EDA 2007.
These judicial opinions are public record and were not quoted by Stephanie as she intended to harm this company simply because she is angry that she was fired for unlawful conduct.
While she was employed by the company, funds were used by her improperly and she stole corporate records which a court ordered her to return.

The court opinion specifically stated : " Ms Stephanie Barton wrongfully stock ledgers, the corporate seal and the official records of the Company. This will hold on without authorization. Further, the court ruled: " she is held falsely held herself out as an officer of the Corporation. On July 26, 2005, this court granted a special injunction to remedy the results of this Barton's wrongful conduct.

The Company will be filing a lawsuit against the author of the original article as well as anyone else who repeats this information. As the public record shows, it is unfortunate that this woman is permitted to continue to publicly state that which has already been proven by a court to be false. The title of her report itself is malicious and we intend to take a judgment against her for punitive damages to remedy or unlawful conduct.
