    Brejla is a horrible individual and a convicted fraud and scam artist. I have met many people in SF who have been victims, either directly or indirectly, of his scams and lies. He will fabricate situations to get close to a person before taking all their money and running. This varies from him pretending to have the ability to help a person achieve success to saying that either he or his wife has cancer. The end results are the same - him taking advantage of other people's good will and allowing others to suffer.

    What a bunch of crap. Terry Brejla is a person of high integrity. The woman that posted this is a grifternamed valerie who has been scamming guys out of money for years. What a shame this appears on google when this lowlife woman is lying through her teeth. I am proud to have terry as a friend. The comment to her comment appears to be the same person.

    This malicious complaint was posted by a gifter named Valerie. She tries to extort money from men she meets, and if they don't agree to give her money to fund some emergency, ie. paying back rent she posts a complaint. She typically always has an ad up on Craigslist. She has been doing this for years.

    Terry, you are the lowest of the low. Knowing the horror I had been through, not only did you deceive me and make my situation worse, now you are lying here and saying that I tried to extort money from you. I have all of the emails and I can prove that is not the case. Have you no shame?

    I have had dealings with Terry Brejla myself on a professional level and got taken to the cleaners. I know of other prominent business owners who unfortunately fell for his lies as well. One company finally took him to court where it came into light that he was already a convicted scam artist. No one in San Francisco should ever hire this horrible man. Make sure you follow up on all the leads on his so called resume. The lesson I learned: don't trust anyone until you've run a complete background check.

    And by the way Terry, stop lying to everyone about you, your wife or your dog having cancer. That you would create such a horrific lie about someone you're suppose to love is unbelievable.

    Terry is a horrible horrible man. He currently has an ad up on craiglists to lure innocent women into meeting him. He says he has cancer and is on medication so he cannot drive. and then he has you come meet him in sausalito - probably so he can check out your car!! Stay far away from this man!!!

    I've been observing Brejla's antics for a while now, and although I've never been scammed by him personally (although he did cause me to waste some time) I believe the complaints about him. I also believe that Alex Love is Terry Brejla. Why? Because it is in the exact same style as a couple of the fake reviews on Amazon.

    I encountered TB (ha! tuberculosis) when he was pretending to be a professor at some business school in the Bay Area. But the name of the school kept changing, and I never found his name on any of the internet faculty lists.

    Anyway, those reviews on Amazon are patently false. They have the same style, and they all say, unfortunately, nothing! You can almost always spot a false review from a bad writer - a fair indication that the writing is poor as well.

    I wish I had known some of this before I crossed paths with Terry Brejla in the beginning of 2008. I am owed over $1300 by Mr. Big Shot for work he commissioned while working (briefly) for a PR firm. They fired him and aren’t making good on his debts. He cries and tells people he has cancer when he doesn’t want to give a straight answer. This guy is unbelievably narcissistic, cruising Sausalito with his dog looking for fresh marks. He is quite the con artist. Watch out for this man as many locals have recently been taken advantage of.

    I met Terry Breijla in 2006 from a Craigslist ad seeking an editorial assistant, that I am way over qualified for.

    Terry Breijla is also a dangerous criminal, not just a lousy con artist, he's been found guilty of fraud and convicted already in Northern California several years ago, not just bounced checks to merchants in Marin, and aggravated sexual harrassment and attempted rape and fraud to career women in the same field as him. He uses the State of California for his ruses that he would not get away with in other parts of the country by isolating his victims. Like claiming his is a widower dying of cancer, for free attractive female emergency medical caretakers and thier friends as me and some of my friends became. He thinks those kinds of "jokes" or "pranks" as he calls them, are amusing or flattering. The firms that employ him can be sued for employing a terminally ill pyschopath who cannot and refuses to pay for personal caretakers when his wife is "not in the mood". He does'nt HAVE personal insurance to cover medical cost for taking care of his fat ugly old carcass. He has'nt been exposed to the East coast liberated sexual harrassment female movement yet, they would rip him to shreds, his home state of Chicago is backwards about 50 years, about as long as since Mr. Breijla has actually been there. He's been in good old Cali, exploiting women, anyone do an actual live and dead body count yet?

    Oh, Alex Love is MY real man, we are from the same place, same college, he was an electrical engineering student and took over his fathers Allstate Insurance Brokerage in Jericho, Long Island, NY and Yes, I believe Mr. Breijla is using his name as a power alias or lure to continue to harras me, because he has tried to do that to my personal email.

    I doubt the real Alex Love's Allstate brokerage in Jericho, Long Island, NY would insure a fat ugly old lying carcass like that! Beware!

    Ask Mr. Breijla how come WPP group and the other companies do not pay for him to have a personal caretaker for his terminal illness? They make 50, 000 a year, and safely drive their cars.

    like GRIFTER! there, wrong part of the country in divorce court!

    GOTCHA LOSER! You are pathetic to even try to associate yourself

    Terry Brejla has a long criminal history, and recently was returned to court in San Jose for a parole violation hearing with his Parole Office Christine Magnasco. A case is being built against him in Marin County for fraud and several law enforcement agencies are involved. It is just a matter of time before he ends up behind bars again where he belongs.

    It's shocking how openly slanderous items posted on the Internet can ruin a person's life. This string was started by a woman named Valerie who tried to extort money from me. This board is hosted in Melbourne Australia which makes it even tougher to go after. the long rambling post near the end is from laura Pacchetti, an alcoholic I lived with for awhile who wound up assaulting me and going to ail. she has been looking for any way possible to get back at me. A relationship that I have treasured is now over due to Complaints Board. Several of these posts were made by the same person writing with different names and email addressesI

    If you are reading this and are sickened as much as i am by the crap that's been posted please call me and let's talk about it. There are mistruths posted all over this board, lies, and fabrications. Sadly, it's taking a toll on my life.

    I recently answered an ad posted on Craigslist and after meeting this guy a few times I thought something was very strange but I couldn't pin point it exactly. Until I received an email from a lady he was living with(she says he's moving out to the city...BEWARE LADIES in the city) advising me to come to this site and search his name.

    I can't believe how this man can carry on with himself knowing what he is doing to ruin other people which have done him no harm. She said she knows this is true since she has gone thru this situation with him. She said good luck to the next person who encounters him. I am thankful for people like her to warn other women of men of the likes of this man.

    DON'T BELIEVE A WORD HE SAYS!!!

    Mr.Brejla applied for a position with my company. Upon doing a background and resume check, we found that he has convictions in several states and has falsified his experience/qualification to various degrees. The offer was obviously withdrawn. Seems to be a low level con-man looking to see if he can take advantage of various individuals/businesses.

    I did website work for him and was not paid. Glad we did not collaborate on a novel like we had discussed. He claimed to have leukemia in an effort to gain sympathy or attention or something. I only hope that he did not make up the story about his dog dying. As a dog lover I hate to think I empathized and tried to comfort a lie. I met him on a Ryze Network for writers and he had us all snowed for a while. Many other writers on the Ryze Network have had some kind of communication with him; many were taken for a ride in one way or another. It was a very disappointing experience for those of us who tend to trust others and take them at face value.

    We did a service for Terry and he paid by check which came back "account closed". He had a story and said the replacement check was in the mail. Right. Now I understand that he IS a conartist. I will be going to the DA's office today.

    Thanks for the Will Townsend update. He's not wasting time planting his evil roots in San Franciso. I'm soooooo glad I Googled and found this site before seeing him again. The horror of the similar lies he gave me as well:
    - I'm a prostate cancer survivor
    - I'm one of President Obama's 5 inauguration speech writers (truly unbelievable)
    - I'd like you to co-author a fiction novel with me (even though I've never written a book in my life) and you'll get a $5K advance. Of course he said he'll draft a contract to show it's a legit.
    - I'll hire you as the Managing Editor of my website (of course it's not live).
    - I was the damage control consultant (or same fancy title he threw out to impress me with) to Mayor Gavin Newsom's marital affair scandal.
    - I'm a former neighbor to Jan Wahl (movie expert) in Marin.

    He offered these so called great opportunities (writing exposure!) without even reading my blog and only one brief meeting.

    Another tip. He's a MeetUp member on a slew of social/networking events. So watch out!

    I think Terry simply wants to be a big shot and so instead of having actual accomplishments, he makes them up. I met him through RYZE, when he was running a writer's group. There was lots of activity, but little substance. Bizarrely, he told one author that he would review a book for the SF Chronicle. He wrote a review for this author, but it turned out that his connections to the SF Chronicle were grossly exaggerated. The review he wrote (never published, of course) was so bland that I don't think he did anything more than skim the novel (if he looked at it at all).

    Think of the huge disappointment on the part of the author, though. Terry, shame on you!

    He has been banned from e-harmony.com He told me he has cancer. He said his wife was dead and that his family would not have anything to do with him. He said he was a big executive at an ad agency. He has a bad temper. He can not keep his grandiose stories straight. He does not tell the truth about his age. Is there somewhere you can find information about any criminal convictions?

    Seeing how easy it is to post a comment on this site, and reading through the list of complaints, I think it's more likely all of the negative ones were written by one troubled mind. They all seem to use common phrases, words and themes, just slightly jumbled so as to give the appearance of different people. Most of them seem to use two letter name abbreviations. Most of them see very personable, repeating the same subjects over and over again about cancer, walking a dog, and Sausalito. Not only that, but this recurring label of "dangerous criminal" etc. makes him sound like Al Capone. I'm pretty sure that most readers will conclude these are fictitious slanders.

    To check convictions go to the online court records of a specific county. I suggest you start with Santa Clara, San Franciso, Marin, and San Diego. You'll find the most info on civil cases.
    Statute of limitations for "oral contracts" is 2 years. Statute of limitations for "written contracts" is 4 years --note that email exchanges can qualify as a written contract.
