Brett Harris Denver Fraud Galasource.com Galasource Nine news reports "Denver-based party company slapped with BBB warning" below are comments from customers and employess of Galasource and Brett Harris Denver Colorado.

COrestaurantguy wrote: 6/26/2008 10:08 AM PDT on 9news.com Please correct me if I am wrong here but isn't continuing to authorize credit cards and capture funds from website orders that were known to be on credit hold considered fraud ?
I would argue that many vendors on the website remained active and website orders were probably taken and cash cleared with out there being ANY hope of ever being shipped, I would speculate that many orders were never even sent the vendors. But clearly the money was taken in advance with full knowledge of management that these orders would never ship. I am not an attorney or a judge but I am sure that this is illegal and more than likely (based on dollar amount) probably a felony. So is any one going to prosecute Brett Harris or Galasource ?

This was only a matter of time, the owner of Galasource is Brett Harris and his business practices and ethics are questionable at best and from what it now appears could be criminal behavior. I for one am glad that he is finally reaping what he sowed over the years. Greed, ego and litigation are not the best ways to manage a company and I think he may finally be enlighted to that. I think Brett Harris going to jail may be the best thing for the business community. He should be made an example, he raped that company through rebates and crooked contarcts. If you know whats good for you, stay away from anything that has his name involved.

I did some business with Brett Harris and Galasource and he ripped me off and lied to me as well. He threatened to sue me ! I hope the other people he burned out there get their money back. I got lucky. Everyone should heed the advice they read about him he is a terrible businessman and I would not trust him.
So be careful.

Before the internet and blogging, businesses and people could operate any way they chose, and not many people would know about it. Now, we can see that this business, and the person running it in full view. It would be nice to know from "thetruthongala" what statements are untrue. Was money taken from customers, and product not delivered? Should the BBB have stepped in sooner, there might be fewer customers who were blatantly ripped off.

wrote:
Is truthongala really Brett Harris ?
Hmmm I wonder.
Who would ever defend such a leech of character?
Let's just hope and pray you (Brett) don't ever conceive offspring from your dishonest corrupt loins and the all the people you have stolen from and deceived get their well deserved vengeance.
Also I hope this link gets sent to your bankruptcy court judge.

I ordered 24 glass carafes from them in early May and they charged my credit card immediately. Still no carafes, but they have my money!
Do NOT do business with them ever Oh and when I was finally able to speak with a live person at galasource, they claimed they were having "contractual issues" with Libbey glass. Contractual issues...code for Galasource isn't paying their bills!

It would appear you have a postive attitude. Good for you. Glad you aren't one of us who were crapped on.

It wasn't the exec team that caused the demise of Galasource. There were actually some good, knowledgeable people on that team.

The demise came from the very top by the single person who treated employees with threats and attempts at intimidation.

I think I like a signature I saw recently:

The Death Star was destroyed by the FORCE! And that force is called Karma...

The owner of Galasource (galasource.com) is Brett Harris, he is a master manipulator of people and the most unethical business person I have ever met.
He is devoid of moral compass and has a sick obsession with the material world and thrives on thinking he is a big man around Denver. In business he consistently thrashes everyone around he lies and steals to the point of felony then breaks his contracts and then he sues. He leads a delusional hollow existence, void of real human connection. He has no real friends and has even sued his own family. Brett Harris believes life is a game of who can get the most money with or without ethics and notch the most law suit victories no matter if his actions are legal or not. I think Brett Harris going to jail may be the best thing for the business community. He should be made an example, he raped that company through rebates and crooked contarcts. If you know whats good for you, stay away from anything that has his name involved

This is really right on par for Mr. Harris. He makes it sound like he's a hero when anyone who was there or most of the vendors know otherwise. He didn't change a thing in the industry, he almost destroyed the concept and he definitely took advantage of what could have been a great thing by unethically stealing from the company through back door rebates, excessive salary and benefits, over hiring and backing out of agreements. To say he has some kind of buiness model that's worthy of sharing is a joke, he ran the company into the ground singlehandly. If anyone wants to share that kind of business model, good luck.

The same typical delusions of a man who thinks he is great, omnipotent. Brett did not "take care" of anyone he worked with. The fact that he tried to help people is a farce, it was ultimatley for his own gain or to use the fact that he had done something as leverage later in the relationship. He drove galasource into the ground single handedly with the adjectives that define his character, greed, fear, ego. Look up the word megalomania. Brett's picture is there. Brett has delusional fantasies of wealth, power, genius, and delusions of grandeur. He has a clear obsession with obtaining grandiosity and extravagance, especially in the form of fame, popularity, material wealth, social influence and power. He has an irrational preoccupation with his own estimation. He is a walking joke and everyone who knows him truly understands that. The people that defend him do not understand the man he is. He is a fake that was dreamed up by listening to Tony Robbins and vomiting that psycology to anyone who would listen. He fooled a lot of people. Brett is unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot. He is deficient in all that lends character and I wish him the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on him. Karma is a bitch pal.

Well it is clear and evident that there is much disdain toward Brett Harris from his former employees and business partners. My question is this; what happens to all of the creditors who are owed hundreds of thousands of dollars ? Can Brett Harris simply file business and personal bankruptcy and be free and clear from reprisal from all the people and businesses he has burned ? Seems very unfair.

Man, for a guy that ruined peoples lives & defrauded investors, small business owners and employees, sure seems ironic that you're on here acting as some champion or martyr for truth. Maybe YOU sir should spend more time trying to repay back the thousands and thousands of dollars you stole in unshipped orders instead of monitoring this chat board. I think the companies that you ripped off would like to tell you to "shut up," (what are you a third grader), but instead they are spending time and money on legal fees to get back what you stole...What a joke.

I have a question to pose. If there were a party celebrating the downfall of Brett Harris, and to discuss how to reclaim the losses incurred by dealing with him; how many people do you think would show ? fifty...one hundred...more ?
Mr. Harris would you ever be man enough to show your face infront of all the people who are so desperate for you to make ammends ? Maybe Tom Martino should host it. (?) I know people have already invited him to get involved on the topic. My guess is you will hide behind your bankruptcy and your inflated ego and when you think it is safe, you will creep back on the scene without a lesson learned.
