SEO Reputation Management at its best!

How in the world does a web design company, who supposedly specializes in designing and customizing websites and wordpress designs, on their own site uses a $50 template they bought from themeforest? Not only do they use a template they bought but changed nothing to it, no customization or nothing, they use a bought template yet brags about why their prices are so low. Go figure?


If you look this guy up, he is a joke; everything related to him is a scam. In the past year alone hes been pursued and sue'd in court many times. Another guy who bought a website from him declined the SEO services he was pushing down people's throat and had his website sabotaged by this man!

This man does not like seeing other people and business succeed, he's been known to hack and send viruses to other peoples website via plugins and blackhat type attacks because their websites is doing so well. [continued below]....


I've talked CJ a person who has worked with this man before terminating him for scamming customers and the things he told me this man Tracy J Bernardo has done, harassing, intimidating, and annoymous death threats all done to the people just wanting their money back from this con-man. Not only were they scammed out of thousands but to add fire to the flame, kick them more while they're already down? Who the hell does that to people and can sleep at night? 

Anyone who comes into contact with this man, heed my warning, run while you can, it will save you time, money and your overall health. This man is a virus with no sense of human compassion. He has stepped over everyone he has every worked with, just follow the trail and ask anyone, they'll tell you the same thing, he's a manipulating, well-polished con/scam artist. 

This man will literatally screw you over in the worst way possible and when you expose him, he tries to turn it all around on you! and blame you for everything! He'll threaten you with his legal bullshit, eventhough he's the one that was lawfully wrong. 

This man is like 50 years old and still acts like this? He probably has only another decade to live, then he'll rot in hell and suffer a hundred times worst than what he has done to people.

Tracy Bernardo is a true sociopath!

AUTHOR: The Truth! - ()

This describes Tracy Bernardo perfectly.

An open letter to lawyers who have clients involved with sociopaths

Dear whom it may concern.

When a client tells you his or her opponent is a sociopath, please be aware of the ramifications for your legal case. 

First of all, do not disregard the statement just because the opponent hasnt killed anyone. A common perception is that sociopaths are all deranged serial killers. This is not trueonly a small percentage of sociopaths commit murder. But all sociopaths are social predators, and live by exploiting others.

Frequently this is financial exploitationmany sociopaths are skilled con artistsbut not always. Sociopaths also target people who can provide them with a place to live, business connections, sex, housekeeping or other support services, children, or a respectable image in the community while they live double lives.  The point is that sociopaths intentionally use manipulation and deceit to hook their target. They by continuing the manipulation and deceit to keep the exploitation going, bleeding the target until there is nothing left. At that point, some sociopaths abandon the target, moving on without a backward glance.

Sometimes, however, the target gets wise to the sociopath, and wants to end the involvement. At this point, some sociopaths become enraged at the possibility of losing control, and set out to crush the target. They are not interested in compromise or equitable distribution. They do not want to give the target whatever he or she is entitled to. They want to grind the target into the dirt. 

What you need to understand about sociopaths

1. A sociopaths prime objective ispower and control. All they want is to win.

2. Sociopaths love the drama of court because it gives them an opportunity to win. They do not consider the possibility that they may lose. If they do lose, they view it a bump in the road, and figure out how to attack the target again. Forcing the target to incur steadily mounting legal expenses is considered a win.

3. Sociopaths lie. They lie convincingly. They have no qualms about lying in court documents or on the witness stand.

4. Sociopaths manipulate other people to lie for them. These witnesses may not know they are lyingthey may simply believe everything that the sociopath has told them, because sociopaths are so convincing.

5. Sociopaths feel no obligation to follow court orders or the law. They only follow court orders or the law if they perceive an advantage in doing so. But they are experts at figuring out ways to use the law to further their objective, which is to crush your client.

How people become targets

Most of us believe that people are basically good inside and everybody just wants to be loved. Because we do not know that there are exceptions to these beliefsnamely, sociopathswe have huge blind spots that these predators can exploit.

No normal person intentionally becomes involved with a lying, manipulative sociopath. So when your client tells you outrageous stories of the sociopaths behavior, and also says he or she never knew about the behavior, or accepted the sociopaths explanations, your client is most likely telling the truth.

How do these entanglements happen? Sociopaths are always on the lookout for people they can use. When they encounter someone through any social interaction, they quickly evaluate whether that person has something that they want. If the by Text-Enhance">answer is yes, they assess the person for vulnerabilities. Then they figure out how to exploit the persons vulnerabilities to achieve their objective.

Sociopaths engage in calculated seduction. If youre handling a divorce case, the seduction was romantic. If its some other type of case, the seduction may have involved shared beliefs, aspirations or goals. Either way, in the beginning of the involvement the target is subject to a wonderful honeymoon of admiration and promise.

Once the target is hooked, the sociopath begins the exploitation, while simultaneously ramping up manipulation to keep the target under control. This may involve: Isolating the target from his or her support networkEmotional, psychological, verbal, physical, sexual or financial abuseGaslightingmaking the target doubt his or her own perceptions

What you need to understand about the target

1. Involvement with a sociopath is like living in a black hole of chaos. Your client, the target, has probably had every aspect of his or her life disrupted:
Career interrupted
Finances ruined
Health compromised
Home and property neglected
Relationships shattered

By the time the legal action commenced, your client may have already been in free fall for a long time. He or she may feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the issues that need to be addressed.

2. Involvement with a sociopath can cause post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). At one time PTSD was diagnosed only in relation to a single traumatic event that involved risk of serious injury or death, coupled with intense fear, horror or helplessness. A new definition identifies a type of PTSD that results from cumulative trauma and long-term injury.

3. PTSD is a psychiatric injury (not a mental illness). PTSD causes biochemical changes in the brain and affects certain areas of the brains anatomy. Common symptoms include intrusive thoughts, nightmares, flashbacks, difficulty concentrating and exhaustion.

4. The litigation against the sociopath makes your client re-experience the underlying trauma and triggers the symptoms of PTSD. 

Dr. Karin Huffer, in her book Unlocking Justice, explains what happens:

Mentally reliving the trauma during legal proceedings simultaneously activates parts of the brain that support intense emotions while diminishing the functions of the central nervous system that controls motor output, regulates physiological arousal, and impedes the ability to communicate in words. Memory fails and intrusive emotions sabotage concentration on the task at hand. Litigants feel incapable of the spontaneous verbal response and interaction required in typical courtroom exchanges. As a result, the litigant with PTSD might be driven to avoid topics. They literally do not hear them. They disconnect when they need to engage. And, at times, they clearly are nonfunctional and are unable to communicate their symptoms and needs in a formal manner accepted by the courts.

5. Targets of sociopaths have been deceived, betrayed and perhaps subject to violence. They approach the courts expecting justice, which sociopaths actively thwart. When justice is denied, and targets instead experience profound and prolonged injustice, their PTSD takes on another dimension, which Huffer identifies as Legal Abuse Syndrome.

Your clients experience The goal of this letter, Mr. or Ms. Esquire, is to help you understand what your client has experienced. My objective is to explain why he or she may be having difficulties with the litigation process, and difficulties moving on in life. The sociopath intentionally used your clientperhaps for yearsand may be intentionally attempting to destroy him or her now.

Your client is not irrational, lazy or obstinate. Your client is having a normal reaction to profound betrayal.

Fell to his pig scam...

AUTHOR: Teri - ()

I bought a pig from him which has a weight guarantee of 16lbs. He told me she was 4 lbs. when he sent her when in all reality she was 5.5 lbs.  She is only 6 months old now and weighs 9lbs.  I highly doubt she will make the "weight guarantee" that is in the contract.  He is a nightmare to deal with, my emails come back as spam, he won't return my phone calls.  

Once money is in hand he wrote us off.  Will not refund any money for her spaying which was supposed to be done per his advertising.  He has a weight guarantee and a peace of mind guarantee which is a total utter falsity! Beware, people.... Tracy Bernardo is a scam artist at his finest!  Do not fall prey to this man!  You will be paying top dollar thinking you are in fact getting a teacup pig, when you're just getting any breed of pig.

Also, I do not believe the pig I bought off of his website is not the same pig I recieved.  She was supposed to be pure white and has brown spots on her head.  Please save yourself heartbreak and go with a reputable breeder not a scam artist pig broker!

#3 UPDATE Employee

Ex employer.

AUTHOR: Chris - ()

Reading these reports just brings a huge smile to my face, I was employed by this man in 2005 when he had a company called Netsymmetrics which was promoting online casinos through website portals and it was the worst working experience I've ever dealt with in my life. This man treated his employees like crap, he has control and anger issues, all he wants to do is boss everyone around and get upset at everyone for the smallest things. He underpaid everyone, I had to ask for a raise because there was no way I was working 8 hours a day for the amount of money he was paying me.

He offered no vacation time nor benefits, he used all the money he made to live beyond his means to protray a rich lifestyle while paying and treating the people working for him like crap. I was fired the same year for no apparent reason, that was one of the best thing that happened to me because after that I got myself a real job, with a nice salary, vacation time and benefits, no more of this hot head, cheap, and evil man who cares about no one but himself. 

There is no suprise to me that he's been running scams now, he's getting desperate, I typed in his last known address from his old companys web profile and found out he lost his house and it was re-sold couple years ago, hahaha nice going dumbass, learn to live on your means, invest, put the money back into your company and employees and you would of been well off today. Instead you're a cheap b*****d who wanted the rich life the quick way, you d**n failure!

I'm glad I could suck as much money as I could out of you before being fired, because I would of went no where working for you, reading up on all his reports here I can clarify everything everyone said about this man is 100% true! Payback is a b***h and you reap what you sow! Checkmate a**hole!

Narcissistic, greedy and rude!

AUTHOR: Scam! - ()

This World if filled with all kinds of people, growing up I was always given the advice of finding the "good" in people, and to be honest I always did, that was until I ran into Tracy J Bernardo, the biggest piece of s**t that has ever walked the face of this earth, someone who is relentless in making life difficult for others, someone who lacks empathy towards others, and just to sum it all up, he's really just a failure of a human being.

Just search him up, contact the people he's screw, they'll all tell you the exact same thing about him.


He presents himself as a successful internet marketer and web consultant, but read what goes on behind closed doors with the link at the top. Scams, intimidates, harass and even death threats? What a desperate sad piece of s**t excuse for a human being he is!

Sick, manipulative individual.

AUTHOR: Kim - ()

The egotistical manipulative personality this man Tracy Bernardo has is truly sick and sad at the same time. This man acts as if he's god’s gift to women yet cannot get within 10ft of any women without deceiving them into making them believe he’s a rich and successful man, he'll go on bragging about houses and cars he "used" to own and he has many business starting up that will make him rich, very sad, yet you look at this man, he's unattractive, old, short, chubby and his hair is turning white.

This man doesn't take rejection so easily, he has known to stalk and harass women that have turned him down, he has called the individual after the relationship was over and pretended to be someone else to sabotage the women’s new relationship, this man does not like seeing other people happy, he believes the world revolves around him.

Abraham Lincoln once quoted “No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar.” And wow does all this man do is lie, lie, and lie. It gets so pathetic that you start to wonder does this man have some sort of mental health issues? Does he not realize once he says something, the other person will remember it and put it up on it? Yet he never delivers, and lies again to turn and squeeze out of his other lies? He lies to cover up his other lies.

Search this man up and read all about him, study his name and picture and if you ever come across him, turn away, run, ignore him, he's nothing but trouble, that's all he is, he has no morals, no empathy for others, it's all about him, while stepping all over everyone else.
