Steve Leflar, aka The Boy who Cried Wolf, has a history of distorting facts and using subterfuge to get away with grand theft to the tune of $225.000 dollars. His partner in crime is qa guitarist named Eric Symons.

 How does the ruse work? They tag team victims. Steve Leflar plays the money guy, and Eric front runs , providing creative excuses to the musicians demanding to be paid.

 It has worked so many times, and hurt so many victims, yet these two internet predators keep playing the same game of hide the potato.

 Steven's Music", aka Steven Leflar, aka Simply The Best Entertainment, has lost multiple lawsuits and found guilty in Superior Court of ripping off bands, DJ's, and other vendors of over $200, 000. 

Leflar would rip off his own mother if he had the cvhance. He keeps changing the name of his compnay to try to hide his criminal reputation: "Steven's Music", "Star Sounds Productions", "North Bay Entertainment", "Simply The Best Entertainment", "STB DJs", "DJ SRL" are ALL the same con man, Steven Leflar. In the past he had used "Steven McArthur" as an alias to hide his identity.

Avoid ALL of the above "businesses", especially "Simply The Best Entertainment" and "Steven's Music" (these 2 have active web sites still up) LeFlar uses 2 friends of his to pose as "owners" of his companies in an effort to hide his affiliation with them. He works most of his scams in the Napa, Sacramento, Elk Grove, Cotati, Sonoma areas, of Northern California.

Here is a partial list of people in the music industry that Steven Leflar ripped off:
Michael Halem
David Martin
Gig Xifaras
Thomas Schoenberger
Larry Lynch
Ellen Shea
Ron Israel
Brian Cline
Joe Sharino
Gary Sparks
Kier LaCrosse
Mike Luna
Larry Johnson
Wendy Wiggs
Shiela Groves
Allison Sharino

'Google' Steven Leflar. Then contact any of the above for verification. Stay away from "Steven's Music" and "Simply The Best Entertainment"

June 2009  Eric Symons gains another 18 LBS

Steve Leflar had by this time thought he had it all, a company with ties to Napa, a plumb guitarist boyfriend who did whatever Steve asked, a reputation for the first time in his life. No more working Craigs List 175 doillar specials.

The  7,000

January 2011. Steve is getting really upset by Eric's bon bons, and obsession with Sergent Schultz of Hogans Hero's. Steve tells Eric, I have never felt like a man and I want to explore my frisky side.

More unsubstantiated lies from Steven R Leflar

AUTHOR: Richard - ()

1. Steven Leflar is a child predator. He has stalked Thomas Schoenberger since 2009, after Mr.Schoenberger caught him and Eric Symons engaged in the theft of his company throgh fraud. None of the entities Leflar has mentioned here have eveer filed police reports of sued Mr.Schoenberger. The only one who has been sued repeatedly and lost is Steve Leflar. Both Leflar and Eric Symons were named as defendants in numerous small claims actions. 

2 As of Deccember 5th 2012, Thomas, his ex wife and their child have reported both Steven Leflar and Eric Symons to the police. It is well known that Leflar uses lies, alias's and distortions as stalking tactics.The Schoenberger family complained to police on December 5th 2012 that their 12 year old child's identity had been hijacked by Steven Leflar. This is why Leflar now has the reputation as a child predator.

 3. An old girlfriend of Thomas's went to the police as of September 2013 to complain that her name had been used to attack Thomas. The IP address matches Steven R Leflar. Leflar stalked this victim as well, photographing her liscense plate.In august 2010, sugar cubes were found on the rim of her gas tank. 4 months after the event, Thomas recieved a mocking call from Leflar, admitting that not only had he sabotaged her car while "in Napa on business", but that he had also placed nails under the rear tires of his ex wife's car.Schoenberger has a witness to the phone call, since his phone was on speaker.Now the ex employee has supported the story because Leflar has bragged to the ex employee of his numerpus schemes to sabotage Schoenberger and his circle.  This is sabotage and criminal behavior at it's extreme. The sugar cube incident was witnessed by three people. The old girlfriend, Thomas and his son. The incident was clearly more of Leflar's aggressive  behavior because neither Schoenberger or his ex girlfriend used sugar.

 4. Steve Leflar's ex employee, who has a company called Legendmakers has written to the Napa Police will a full statement of fact, including Leflar plotting to kill or injure Thomas, his family, his ex girlfiend and others. As of 2013, these threats remain real. In the statement sent to police and Napa DA, the ex DJ/contractor has also provided damning evidence that Leflar threatened, plotted and carried out acts of aggression and also actively sought to "place blame" on Thomas. Leflar's ex employee is working with police to prepare a criminal indictment on Leflar for terrorist threats, criminal damage to property, felony stalking,and other charges. 

 5. The Napa Police have been contacted by yet another victim of Leflar Symons in early October 2013. The victim was stalked by Eric Lee Symons, and threatened. the victim was called by Symon's who admitted to the victim that Leflar and Symons had her on their "list", as they do the other victims. 

 6. The fictional story of the owner of Viviani comes from Leflar's imagination. there was also never a note left in any violinists case. Such a note would have been used by police, fingerprinted, and then used as evidence. Leflar's stories are as dangerous as his stalking. The welcome news is that now, the Napa Police have had 6 complaints regarding Leflar and Symons and because the ex employee of Leflar has now turned as an eyewitness against Leflar, a criminal investigation into Steven R Leflar and Eric Symons will undoubtedly proceed.

Steve Leflar owes Legendmakers 75,000 !

AUTHOR: Legendmakers - ()

Steve Leflar  falsely claims that R.Israel owned 25% of North Bay Entertainment in 2008. The facts are that NBE was completely owned by Steve Leflar.

In March 2008, Steve Leflar approched Ron Israel, claiming he had just "gotten away with murder" by stealing North Bay Entertainment from the owner"

Leflar further claimed he had Eric Symons, the general manager of North Bay Entertainment as his cohort.

 

Leflar took Ron Israel down to the business office of Concord California as he started North Bay Entertainment Concord on March 24th 2008.

 

Over the next several months, he tried to get Ron to invest in his new agency. Ron refused, having already put 70,000 into Steve Leflar's Star Sounds Productions company.

 

As Steve Leflar proceeded to steal from dozens of musicians, he would often brag that "Eric is as stupid as they come" and that Eric would "take the musicians s**t" and then "come serve me"

 

R.Israel started to get very supsicious of Leflar, and ultimately , it was found out that Leflar was even ripping Israel off for $70,000.
