Mr. Bradley Gregory Miller who is a private investigator with a license befriended me and by giving me promissory notes he took my money. He owes me about a 100 Grand and for the last several months he keeps making up stories and misrepresenting the truth. Plainly, he defrauded me.

He was supposed to pay me back in October of 2012 (months ago). I found out he is on criminal probation and he has a suspended jail sentence for fraud. so obviously this is nothing new and on top of that how can he be a witness in any court with this type of ongoing problems???

I need to get my money back now; and it is a civil issue but I wonder if this also would end up causing his criminal probation get revoked and he would end up loosing his license as an investigator and have him go to jail too? What do you all think????

Here's the True Story

AUTHOR: Brad - ()

Unfortunately, anyone can post anything they want on this website.   No one confirms the veracity or accuracy of what is written.   if it made financial sense, I would file a civil action against this "client" for libel, harassment, and probably a dozen other actionable causes.   However, in spite of being a Beverly Hills "Plastic Surgeon", he has few assets...

 

I will first set the record straight regarding myself, then I will present the facts about the individual making these false accusations.   

 

I have never had a "suspended jail sentence for fraud".    Without going into too many details, while working for perhaps the most prestigious Criminal Defense Attorney in the United States, I worked with him on a high profile case in which an allegedvictim had  a friend contact me to ask for money to retain an Attorney for herself, to stop the LA DA's Office from threatening to take away her newborn baby if she didn't testify the way they wanted against our client in a criminal proceeding.    She was provided with the names of 3 Criminal Defense Attorneys to interview.   Although she had limited resources, the Attorney she selected wanted a $10,000 retainer to represent her.   The friend contacted us; I contacted my Attorney client, and was told to find a way to get the funds to her.   Money was transferred to her; it was later determined she had left California to avoid pressure from the DA's Oofice.   She was eventually arrested and extradited to California, where her $1,000,000 bail was reduced to "OR" and she agreed to spin a tale about me and the Attorney I was employed by.    

 

Coincidentally, this investigation was reportedly opened on the day Michael Jackson was exonerated in the Santa Barbara case.   That's right, I am the PI whose office was illegally raided (as I was a member of the Defense team) by Tom Sneddon, the unethical DA of Santa Barbara.   I have Proof he knew I was working for this same Attorney.  If I recall correctly, Michael was found not guilty, and it turns out the accuser and his mother, were the culprits.

 

Back to LA...I was arrested and charged with attempting to bribe a witness.  I bailed out.   The case dragged on in Judge Ito's courtroom for approximately 6+ years.    Enough was enough.    I ended up accepting a plea bargain of community service and probation.    The entire point was they wanted me to implicate my Attorney Employer.   I remained loyal and took the bullet myself.

 

i completed my community service and my probation was ended 18 months early.   Fraud?   I don't think so...

 

However, the individual making the allegation on this website, was very much aware of my probation status because I told him so over lunch at a Beverly Hills Deli.   We initially met to discuss my representing him in a couple of matters: one was a pending criminal action against him for attacking a Beverly Hills Police Officer in his office; and, the other was for an alleged real estate scheme he believed was engineered to defraud him.

 

what he leaves out of his fabricated story is the fact that I spent in excess of 90 hours talking with potential witnesses, researching documents, talking with experts, etc., not to mention the approximately $3,900 in costs and expenses I advanced on his behalf.   All and all, while working on his matters, I was due approximately $17,400 in costs, time and fees.

 

How much did he pay?  Zero--0.     That's right, nothing.   He is a deadbeat.

 

He is correct in one thing, we did enter into an investment together.   He invested a total of approximately $9,000 and I invested in excess of $20,000.     The investment didn't pay off.

 

One would think, being he owed me $17,400 for professional services, which I didn't get paid from him, and he was due perhaps $15,000 from the investment, plus potential profit, it would be "a wash".

 

Unfortunately, he chose to make these libelous statements about me.

 

oh yes, lest I w forget, his mention of my owing him "100 Grand" is based on his unilateral assessment of $500 dollars per day interest on the $9,000 invested.   I believe that is an annual interest rate of approximately 2000%.   Sounds like usury in anyone's book.   He should know better; aside from being a "Plastic Surgeon", he owns "a law firm"...

 

My own Attorney advised me what this individual was doing (the emails, texts, voicemails, etc) amounted to extortion.   However, again, what would be gained by going after him ?

 

I would urge anyone reading Anonymous postings on this website to beware of their accuracy, or lack thereof.

A more effective way of dealing with this type of claim is to file a report with the Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, a division of the California Department of Consumer Affairs.
