    Sacramento, California

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

My girlfriend had literally become physical ill after dealing with this monster Tracy Bernardo. He scammed her off of more than $4,000, money in which it has taken her a year to save up. After numerous unanswered phone calls and emails asking for an explanation Tracy Bernardo started to harass and threaten us for wanting our money back. I didn’t think anyone like him existed until ran into this man.

We started doing extensive research about this man which ultimately led us to his other victims and we shared notes which were very parallel to one another. We all noted that before handing over to Mr. Bernardo, he was well spoken, pleasant to talk to, always picked up his phone and gained our trust. I remember the first time he didn’t answer his phone right away, was the day after my girlfriend sent over the money to him.

After the money gets sent, Tracy Bernardo no longer values his clients. [continued below]....

..... It starts from his little run around and excuses, he makes up the most ridiculous excuses at times. Then he starts getting agitated and short tempered, he then resorts to harassing, intimidation, threats and slanders to his own CLIENTS who are waiting on their product.

Who in the World does this? I’ll tell you who, a manipulative and conniving sociopath. He as displayed zero remorse for any of his victims, he has never once apologized for any of his wrong doings, till today even after being pursued in court many times he’s still on the attack, just last month he made allegations to a English teacher that she was a child molester after she spoke out on him.

At first he told everyone she was one of his competitors and was never a customer of his, and then on the same page he stated she was a customer and then finally on the same page again he stated she was a child molester. This man has no problem lying; he lies so much he doesn’t realize how nonsensical and contradicting his lies become.

He’s now running a web design company, this is about the 10th company he has ran, every other company has been exposed as a scam with negative reviews so he just hops onto the next thing. He writes fake articles pretending to be the most popular web consultant in Sacramento, boasting how popular he was that he was picked from a poll yet no poll was linked, no sources and if he’s so popular and everyone knows him why does his Facebook design company has only 9 fans total? Yeah 9 fans, so popular.

He’s trying everything to cover up his past, he even created a Google plus account and started adding everyone and everything he can in order to look like he has friends and fans and sadly out of the 800+ people he has added on Google, no one talks to him, look at all the post he has posted, he gets no response, no likes and no comments. Wow nice fake friends there Tracy, the true fact is that no one likes this man, because of his nasty narcissist, manipulative, and disgusting character trait he has, no one can stand him, he’s the lowest form of a human being.

This man like most sociopath wants to be in control, wants power, and wants recognition. The second that his man doesn’t feel like in control that’s when the monster comes out in him, when he has a client and talking to them on the phone, he feels in control, he feels good feeding them the bullshit he has to say in order for them to hand over the money, but once they speak out for themselves or wanting their money back, he no longer feels in control, so in order to be in control again he has to use unethical tactics of intimidation, lies, threats, slander, and of course lawsuit threats so he can flex his power and feel in control, he wants to strike fear onto his victims.

This man is pure evil, doing business with him will just make your life a living hell. Don't ever believe anything this man says, he's a pathalogical liar, he has no problem lying to anyone, don't even believe what I'm saying, do your own research, lookup ihs court cases, look up his other victims or talk to his ex-broker. The fact that Tracy Bernardo has been imvolved with this kind of business and behavior for the past decade and is close to 50 years old, doesn't seem like he's going to change, this is a sad and digusting individual. If you do business with him you can end up being accused of being a child molester online, he'll call your family and tell them that, he'll call your work place doing that, he won't stop until you back off, stay away from this monster!

Sociopath 101

AUTHOR: Truth - ()

If you are under libelous attack by a person who has deceived and defrauded you, there is a possibility that the person is a sociopath. Sociopaths have no heart, no conscience and no remorse. They will lie, cheat and steal from you, and then tell everyone that it is all your fault.

Why is it so critical for you to know about sociopaths? Because millions of sociopaths, also called psychopaths, are living among us. Yes, many of them are criminals, locked up in jail. But far more are on the street, hurting people without breaking laws, operating in the gray areas between legal and illegal, or simply eluding the authorities. They can appear to be normal, but they pose a tremendous threat to us all. 

Sounds exactly like Tracy Bernardo.

He has lied, cheat and stole from his clients then when they spoke out about him, he called them liars, he called them his competitors, he's called them irresponsible customers, he's called them thieves and child molesters.

He was basically operating in the illegal areas because bait and switching is illegal. Many customers have said he appeared to be normal until they handed over the money, that’s when he stops picking up phones and responding to emails. Be careful anyone who might run into Tracy Bernardo.

I believe sociopaths needs to be exposed especially the ones that are online doing business to warn others.

I could only imagine what it would feel like to send 3-4 thousand dollars to someone only to be harassed, attacked, threaten and slandered by that person. It must take a very sick individual to do that to someone. At least he's being exposed for everything he has done, good job guys!

His website plans.

AUTHOR: Matt - ()

Let's see his $4495 website plan, the bottom is listed to what you get, I'll tell you everything it's worth.

Web hosting - A basic web hosting from Hostgator is $3.96 a month, unless you have a high traffic website you don't need anything else.
Weekly backups - He's charging $30 a month for backups? Most hosting have free weekly/monthly backups.
Full pages w/ content - Again this is easy for him to generate pages with content he is a marketer, his pages consist of stock images and simple content. He's not designing anything for his clients, it's all pre-made work.
Customization - ???
Custom Forms - Why is he even adding this? They're free plugins for custom forms and most templates already give you nice free custom forms.
Social media links - Why is he even adding this? Again it comes free with every modern template out there.
Slider - Why is he even adding this? Again it comes free with every modern template out there.
Blogs - Why is he even adding this? Again it comes free with every modern template out there.
Email Accounts - He's giving you only 10 emails? When the cheapest hosting out there gives you unlimited email accounts? Check out - for a $3.96 a month hosting they give you unlimited email accounts.
Shopping cart - He uses woocommerces which is for free, you can download it at their official website.
2 hours wordpress training - There is better, hands on, visual wordpress training on Youtube for free where you can learn way more than the 2 hours he is providing you.

You see this? He's selling snake oil, just like he did with his pig website. It's all sales pitch to entice potential clients. Go find a professional web developer or designer and they will tell you the same exact thing.

AUTHOR: Rick - ()

He's been out there too long with his shady business practices, I'm glad it has finally caught up with him. He usually will be confident in scamming others because he would just lie and slander his way out of it with anything he can make up. Now it seems like he has bit off more than he can chew, with all the information on him and all the victims that has piled up there's no way he can longer lie his way out of it. It's really sad people like him are doing business out there, someone who does not invest interest in others only his personal self-interest.

He will lie, cheat and steal from others then harass and threaten them not to speak out and once they do he will again engage in lies and slander to take the spotlight away from his dirty deeds. He has been doing this for years and years. We’ve all seen the same pattern from him; the funny part is that he lies so much he’s not able to keep track of his lies and starts contradicting himself in some instances.

This man is a clear cut example of someone you need to watch out for when doing any kind of business online or in person. This man is filled with lies, deceit, scams, anger, hatred, evil…etc. He’ll tell you one thing on the phone and then do another behind your back, he does not care who he steps over as long as he gets his way and money.

Another of Tracy's sociopath traits

AUTHOR: Pam - ()

This sociopath strikes once again also, he signed up for a service using his credit card at, on the professional plan it shows you a pricing list based on per website hits, once Tracy gets charged for the service he has picked guess what happens? HE SLANDERS, HARASS AND THREATENS a reputable company because he couldn’t read. Pathetic, once again proving everyone’s point that this man is a sociopath, he will never admit his wrong doings and will always try to blame others no matter what.

“To put salt on the wound, i contacted Netapplications and spoke with Nicole,what a piece of work she is! She tells me that she would rather have a chargeback than issue me a refund. Yet she says she has a refund policy, but wont give me money back. Well I contacted my bank and I'm sure they will take care of this for me without any problems whatsoever.” --Tracy Bernardo

She won’t give you a refund because they’ve ALREADY PROVIDED YOU THE SERVICE YOU DUMBASS! How about someone buys one of your stupid websites and was charged something they didn’t understand, they then ask you for a refund after you’ve already provided them their designed website, are you going to give them a refund? No you wouldn’t! Hell you wouldn’t give the Teacup victims back their money after baiting and switching them, they had to take you to court many, many times!

“These people are scammers, and i honestly believe they are duping people out of their money with their fine print or sneaky way to charge you 15 times more for an account that they say is only $9.95 a month.“ --Tracy Bernardo

I went to their page and clicked on pricing and look what I see on the pricing page, clear as daylight, a whole paragraph explain the pricing options and he dares to call that “fine print”?

“After your promotional period, you will be charged monthly on your billing day based on your site’s volume in the prior month. For example, if you sign up on January 1, the service is free until January 31. Accounts may be canceled at any time during the month by contacting support, and they will not be charged.”

This is the same man who has a certified weight guarantee on his website and yet many of his clients pig weight didn’t meet the guarantee and Tracy blamed them for it right away.

Does this man need any more exposing? This man clearly has mental issues, he does everything wrong yet blames others for it, no matter if its scamming them, harassing them, threatening them, cheating them, stealing from them...ect In his mind he is never wrong, he will never take blame for his own actions instead will find anyone or anything to place that blame on, there is CLEARLY something very wrong going on in his head. Proof, after proof after proof we have dug up on this man, how does someone of his nature sleep at night? what a DIGUSTING human!

Another scam!

AUTHOR: Jim - ()

He also tried to sell his broker pig website on Flippa with the following. 

Basic stats:
Page views per month: 412,101
Uniques per month: 80,374
Gross monthly revenue (avg): 0
Net monthly profit (avg): 0
Current price: $50,000
BIN price: $200,000

Read his auctions here.

Once again he's a liar trying to scam people, he claimed in one month he made $45k alone. That's impossible from a broker, which it was proven he was! He said his commission from each pig was $500, so let's do the math, 500x90 = 45k. He'd have to sell 90 teacup pigs to make $45k, once again this monster was caught in a lie trying to sell a tainted website that isn't worth much for $200k. Pathetic, he tried the same thing with his financial broker website.

He resulted to scamming his customers because the $500 commission wasn't enough for him and he wanted the full money. Good thing no one bought the tainted website! A lot of people started to question his supposed revenue and Tracy got defensive and started deleting comments, if his statements were true he shouldn't get offensive and prove them wrong, yet he knew they were catching onto his scam so he started deleting comments, sick!

If he didn't get exposed like he did he would still be out there slandering his victims, harassing them, accusing them of being his competitors, and threatening them. It's sad when you realize lunatics like him are out there doing business with people for selfish reasons. He's trying so hard to cover up his tracks by buying multiple domain names with his name on it in order for it to cover his Ripoff reports on Google search engines when someone types his name. You reap what you sow, you cannot have over 22+ victims and think you can create a new business with a clean slate knowing d**n well you make your living deceiving others with no care in the World for them only to bring them down!

He plays mind games with his victims, he lies in a snap of a finger, he says whatever it takes for you to feel comfortable so that you won't question him but all he's doing is stringing you along with his lies and deceit. This is his whole motive, he's a sociopath, he has crafted his speech and words to manipulative people because generally people are good and trusting and Tracy Bernardo knows that fact and takes advantage of it! After he lies and screws his victims over he does not care nor has a worry in the World, it takes a real nasty SOB to have over 22+ victims and have never once apologized or shown remorse for his own actions, instead he goes on the defense and attack.

Tracy Bernardo's tactics exposed!

AUTHOR: Scam - ()

Tracy Bernardo is the Bernie Madoff of online business. All he cares about is making a profit without caring who he scams or steps over. He will string along his victims with promises and promises without following through, he then tries everything he can to cover up his unethical business practices by blaming, slandering and creating false accusations to his victims, none of which is ever truthful information.

After extensive research we’ve found out one of things he loves to do when a victim speaks out about him is to pretend that they’re one of his competitors, he then writes an elaborate false statement in order to slander his victims accusing them of being a bitter competitor when they’re actually his victims he scammed out of money.

The fact that he has done this many times means he already knew he was going to scam people and already made up stories to cover up his tracks. He believes he can just accuse them of being a competitor and it will wash him clean of his scams. We found one of his victims dating back to 2009 where Tracy ran a webcam model website and stole all the earnings from the models before going bankrupt.

“The story about the model scheming and stealing credit card info and taking money is a lie. It's sad they feel the need to make up lies in order to cover up their own dishonesty. Hopefully they're not longer taking advantage of people, but I highly doubt they developed a conscience.” - Juliet

Notice the victim story matches his pig scam victims, scamming, stealing and then making up false stories or slander to take the spotlight away from his unethical business practices. His response also never changes, he pretend they’re his competitors.

His response to a model he stole money from in 2009.

“False and Misleading Information From our Competitors”

 “Well its tough being the number one webcam model agency on the internet. We constantly have to deal with not only models that are angry that they did not get hired, but our competitors malicious lies that are completely inaccurate and quite frankly unsubstantiated. We have no record of this model ever filling out an application, and if we did , and she refused to follow up with her age verification, her information, pictures and anything else she sent us are removed from our system in just a few short days.” - Tracy Bernardo

Lighthouse Media Pro. For more information contact TRACY BERNARDO, OPERATIONS MANAGER or go to

Now let’s look at his response to another victim in 2012/13 he made.

 “This is a bad mouthed and foul mouthed teacher that has a vendetta against Tracy Bernardo. She works for and is paid by our competitors and has never purchased anything from us. She is slandering us all over the internet and is the last person you want take advice from.” -Tracy Bernardo

Notice the trend? When his victims speaks out about him he just lies to everyone that it’s one of his competitors, he has 22 known victims online with similar stories to tell. The fact that he has that many victims and many more that hasn’t come out shows that his confident in his scams which is why he continues to scam people. We can’t let someone with this kind of business ethics continue to hide in the shadows and do business which is why he’s getting exposed at this level.

Notice how he stated that he’s the number one webcam model agency even though the model clearly stated they were going bankrupt and till this day that company is no longer active, again Tracy Bernardo with his trademark lies.

Another trademark tactics Tracy is known to throw are legal threats, let’s see his handy work legal threats.

 “I was contacted via cell phone by a illegitimate "attorney" via voice messaging stating that if I "slander" lighthouse media that I will be sued and that I will lose the case and will have to pay $100,000 in fees and would lose my home, my car, my job. I contacted them stating that they have no attorney and to stop sending me threatening messages. They still to this day do not have the 2257 Regulations Law stated on their site whatsoever. This so called lawyer did not leave a name, nor a phone number.”  - Danyelle H


 If you search Tracy Bernardo on Google you’ll find he owns the company Netsymmetrics, we then search that name on Google and look what we found once again, trademark bullshit legal threats.

 “We will be filing a lawsuit for damages by weeks end in the amount of $250,000 USD. Your attorney's fees and loss of work (to appear in court) will substantial, even if you had the opportunity to explain in court why you did not pursue a small claims suit against Netsymmetrics LLC instead of making libel remarks that expose our company to public hatred, contempt, ridicule or obloquy; or to cause Netsymmetrics LLC to be avoided or shunned or to injure Netsymmetrics LLC in business.” – Tracy Bernardo


Here’s a legal threat to one of his teacup pig scam victims.

 “I am offering you this chance today to talk to your husband before he loses everything you and him have worked so hard for. I am filing a libel and defamation of character suit in a court of law immediately and will be suing you, Bill, and your family of all assets for damages caused to my name and my company.  View Capital will want nothing more to do with him after being dragged into this negative limelight by your husband.

I assure you, that neither you nor I want to see this move in this direction or path that your husband has now cleared the way for.  He will experience a loss of reputation, a loss of clients, and huge financial losses because of his temper. You will be served in public, all of Dallas will know the type of person he is, and your family will quickly be well known all over Texas as well as the United States if not the world for its poor choices.
Please do what is right before its too late. I expect to see the site with my name removed immediately. The next contact from me will come from attorneys. Once this starts on the internet, it will never end and will be present for years to come for friends, family and business associates to see.” –Tracy Bernardo


Do you see pattern this sociopath throws out? Scam, slander, attack, harass and then legal threats. Those 3 threats came from 3 different companies he has ran, this man makes his living screwing people over. With over 22 known victims online he’s still out there trying to run a company, this time it’s a web design company in which he’s clearly selling web illiterate individuals cheap templates claiming to be customized for thousands, this makes me sick. Everyone website on his portfolio can be traced down to his own companies, those are not work he has done for clients but his own personal websites, that’s false advertisement.

Steer clear away from this evil, cheating, deceitful and cruel sociopath.

It still amazes me how Mr. Bernardo fits these characteristics to the tee!

Sociopaths never apologize. They are never wrong. They never feel guilt. They can never apologize. Even if shown proof that they were wrong, they will refuse to apologize and instead go on the attack.

Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process such emotions. This allows them to betray people, threaten people or harm people without giving it a second thought. They pursue any action that serves their own self interest even if it seriously harms others.

Sociopaths are delusional and literally believe that what they say becomes truth merely because they say it! 


Sociopaths seek to dominate others and "win" at all costs. They hate to lose any argument or fight and will viciously defend their web of lies, even to the point of logical absurdity.

Sociopaths invent outrageous lies about their experiences. They wildly exaggerate things to the point of absurdity, but when they describe it to you in a storytelling format, for some reason it sounds believable at the time.

Sociopaths speak poetically. They are master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running "stream of consciousness" monologue that is both intriguing and hypnotic.

The proof is in the pudding folks!

AUTHOR: Scam - ()

Let's hear some testimonial straight from Tracy's victims on how pure Tracy's heart and mind is!


Victim 1

Another complaint and more overwhelming evidence that Tracy Bernardo is a liar and cheat.  Beware of him:

Regarding Tracy Bernardo, I've been monitoring the situation through your postings and feel extremely lucky we didn't suffer the same fate as some others.  I'm sorry for you and the customers he caused so much trouble for!  Tracy  mislead us as well, but we were lucky that he didn't cheat us out of our money at least.  As you may recall, he stopped answering my emails immediately after we paid him, and he mislead us regarding our pig's size, and he lead me to believe that he was the breeder and that the pigs were nearby.  He never mentioned you or your ranch in Texas.  I discovered the truth by searching the web and recognizing our pig's photos on your site so I contacted you.  We were fortunate that for whatever reason he must have told you of our adoption, but I knew then he had not been honest with me in the process.  I am very glad not to deal with him anymore and I hope the mess he's caused you and the others is resolved soon. 


Victim 2

Tracy Bernardo, now known as TB, has again pulled another scam:  bait and switch.  Read below from one of his victims.

 Hi...I am sorry sorry to bother you and know that this is not your problem, but I saw your website after I wired money (4,500.00) to for a male white pocket nano mini pig 'Alexander' who is on my contract.  Your comments are correct about Tracy.  The only time I have actually talked with him on the phone is the day I was sending the money.  It took weeks, but I am at least thankful that I finally actually received a piggy, although I am positive the piggy I received is not the piggy on the website.  I did not receive any paperwork for the piggy such asany vet visit or health certificate/shots etc..He will not return my many phone calls/emails and I have no support or ideas of how to care for this piggy now that he is here.

 The reason I am writing you is that the pig 'Alexander' (attached) that I thought I had purchased, is the only one on the website in this particular valentine's box and setting, and I was hoping that you could perhaps identify the photo to see if you maybe know this litter or are familiar with the breeder where I could go to get help.  There are no other piggies on his website that have the same valentines setting or anywhere online that I can find.  Alexander was born (1/8/2012), I believe around the time you posted that you were having issues with Tracy.  I was hoping perhaps you were familiar with this litter and I could start there in trying to find out if I actually received the same type/price piggy that Alexander is.  His photo is still on his website.

The piggy I received yesterday is a white male, but it is very spotted on his temples, various black spots on his body, and has black pigment on his nose. I don't believe such marked pigment would show up, but I am not familiar with it either and if this is possible.  Alexander looks solid white with no black pigment anywhere that I can see.  The piggy I received is pretty small (4lbs) and has one blue eye, so maybe that will help to id him.  He is very cute, but I am hoping that I did not receive a pig that will be more than the 16-18lb contract we signed.  I have only had him for one day and have not taken any photos of him yet.  If I took a picture of him and sent it to you, do you think you may be able to identify if he is one from your litters or another breeder Tracy works with?  Any guidance would be very appreciated as I am at a complete loss.

I would be happy to call you if you think you can help.  I am hoping that someone may be able to tell me who/what this piggy I have is.  I am just sick over this whole ordeal and wish I would have seen your website first.  I can imagine that if I cant get Tracy to call to even make sure the piggy arrived safely, he will certainly not stand up to his contract.


Victim 3

Message: I am overjoyed!!Thrilled beyond belief that this man is being exposed. I have numerous email conversations from Tracy weaving a web of lie after lie- I have a voice mail that complete contradicts his emailed promises and claimed he'd been working on his ranch all weekend because of the rain- after a little research I discovered he is an internet market "specialist" which explains his nicely laid out website... I had family backing me in my communications with Tracy and was able to put enough pressure, after weeks of ridiculous lies, to allow me to speak to CJ himself. I finally felt I was getting somewhere once I spoke to CJ and I did receive my piglet.  I have to say Tracy Bernardo is a twisted delusional man who will certainly do a lot of damage to the world of mini pig lovers if he is not stopped. Thank you CJ for making efforts to stop him..I have been on my own tirade since the moment I began the pursuit of getting my much loved pig. I have used my website, twitter account and forum in my classroom to avoid purchasing from I fully support your attempts of putting these beautiful animals in the hands of those that want nothing more than to love and adore them regardless of their tiny mini status... Thank you again for informing us- my day is made brighter knowing Karma has bitten back!!


Victim 4

I have noticed message on your web site stating that you are not working together with Tracy Bernardo. Over six weeks ago I have orderd a pig from Tracy's website and I still have not got it nor any information regarding when I would get it. Can you tell me by any chance if Yoshi from Tracy's web site was one of your pigs? Or maybe you know the breeder where Yoshi comes from? Now I am trying to get my money back so I can buy pet for my kids in more reliable place. I would really appreciate some info on it.


Victim 5

Again, one of my piglets that Tracy Bernardo of was not authorized to put on his website, or take a contract and payment.  He had them sign a contract, took payment, then never notified me of the contract.  He did not send payment for one of my piglets that has a contract and payment.


Victim 6

Mr. Bernardo acquires a piglet to replace my piglet "Yoshi" that he illegally and unethically sold to this family after I terminated him for illegal and unethical practices.  They inform him that they know it is not Yoshi, because they talked to the breeder, me.  They ask for dob, current weight, and projected adult size.  He has nothing to say or write back, except, that he is not a broker, he is not one that resells.  He is the breeder, the best breeder and seller in the country.  Again, a huge lie.  I had been placing my piglets through for almost two years.  I terminated him in January 2012 after a scam he ran on Shaela K in October 2011, and another to Susie P. in January.  We have now had three clients of and Mr. Tracy J. Bernardo contact us and try to solve the mystery of why he takes their money and does not deliver a piglet, or any real details.  He has even sold the same piglet twice.  He takes the money, promises, promises, then desparately tries to find a switch piglet from another breeder, as he is not a breeder.  He may be attempting to get a breeder pair at this point to refute that he is not a breeder.  He has been terminated as a broker with Piggy Essence.  It seems that he will lie to any length to get money out of people.


Victim 7

J's wife related to me how Mr. Bernardo would give them all sorts of tales in concern to being the breeder.  One comment was that he was on his way to the vet with a piglet.  He does not breed, he does not have barns down the street as another of his client has called me and given me more insights.J and his wife adopted Xavier from me.  They wired money on 3-15-12, and I shipped on 3-16-12, as Xavier was already neutered.  Getting a great micro mini piglet that is weaned should take a week to two weeks after payment, depending on whether it is a male or female.


Victim 8

Contract signed between and Susie.  On January 9, 2012, she wired Lighthouse Media Corp, LLC, owned by Tracy Bernardo of a nonrefundable deposit on a Piggy Essence micro mini piglet.  January 19, 2012 she provides proof that she wired the money, yet Mr. Bernardo never gave her updated pics.  Mr. Bernardo did not ask for updated pics, because he had not notified me of the contract with the $3600 in payments.


Victim 9

Another couple called, due to seeing the same pics of micro mini piglets on  They had wired over $4000 to Tracy Bernardo, dba Lighthouse Media Corp, LLC, back in late December 2011.  The were told to be patient.  Tracy Bernardo never contact me in December at the time of their first payment or the following payments in January and February.  By the time they contacted us in March, their piglet had been sold by Trace Lovelace Cousaire of TLC Piglets, my girlfriend.  They are pursuing this legally.


Victim 10

Contacted by a mother for her young adult daughter.  They signed a contract and wired over $4000.  After a month, He never notified Piggy Essence, the breeder for that he had placed another piglet in contract with full payment.  I had them verify all contracts and wire transfers.  I also verified with Chase Bank, the bank that was being used by Mr. Bernardo at that time.  They verified that the funds had been in his account.  I did not want them to litigate and pursue an acknowledgement smear of Mr. Bernardo, as he was responsible for a vast majority of my sales and placements at that time, so I had them choose another comparable piglet.  I paid for all the shipping and health expenses to send this piglet to another country.  Mr. Bernardo agreed in email to reimburse for the piglet, as he did not have the funds.


Victim 11

There is a new smear campaign initiated by an anonymous person. This posting is almost certainly from by Mr. Tracy Bernardo.   I had to terminate my contract with him due to four people that tracked me down, due to not receiving a piglet from him, after contract and wire transfer payments.  If you go to my website, you will see that on the home page and the available piglets page, he was terminated in January 2012.  Yet, he refuses to remove my information and my piglets.  Three people recently have contacted me to the whereabouts of the piglet he sold them, one of my piglets.  I have a new page on my website:  They sent me proof of the contracts and the payment.  With much regret, Mr. Bernardo did not forward me the contracts or the payments for the Piggy Essence piglets.  He has been desparately doing a bait and switch to sell them a completely different piglet from another broker.  My posts about him, has lead him to block me from seeing his website.  I have even received an anonymous death threat.  Mr. Bernardo does not tell the truth in many regards.  He represents himself as the breeder,as I can in emalil show many, many complaints about him.  Even one of his clients owns and posted about the treachery of doing business with him.  Mr. Bernardo, then called every associate in the client's office and smeared the client and threatened. Keep in mind, we have a prescribed care program from my vet, Dr. Williams.  We do a physical examination prior to departure.  Post care advice and support is given.  Monthly Care Monitoring is required for a minimum of 12 months in guiding the client in proper care and socializing..

 I strongly encourage you realize that the above posting is from a desperate individual who will lie, manipulate, scam, cheat, smear, and attempt to destroy.  He wants to take the spotlight from himself and his wrongs by any means.  Please do not buy any piglets from Tracy Bernardo who owns, owned by Lighthouse Media Group, LLC. March 20, 2012: Another Testimonial from a swindled Tracy Bernardo of client:  Tracey Bernardo promised me a pig, I signed a contract and wired him $4,400. After not returning my phone calls, emails, or voicemails, I got suspicious. I searched different pig sites and found the pig I had purchased on CJ's site. CJ nicely explained what happened and I asked Tracey for my money back. Not only did he not provide me with a pig but he embezzled 3 years worth of savings from me. I have a lawyer trying to get my money back. Tracey has thrown a huge wrench in my finances and has been an incessant headache. I have received an anonymous death threat through my website form response.


 Victim 12

I'm writing because of the negative experience I had with Tracy Bernardo of when purchasing a mini piglet. When making arrangements for shipping my piglet, I explained to Tracy that from where I live, there were only two airport options.  The closest being a three hour drive, and that I would need to make arrangements at my office so I could be gone that day.  A date was set, and then I received an email from Tracy Bernardo telling me that "his shipper" couldn't ship that day.  Then another date was set, only to be changed again.  This happened at least five times.  The last time it was changed, Tracy lied when he told me that it was too late in the day to book the flight.  I knew this was a lie, because that particular airline didn't pre-book pet cargo.

By this point, I was extremely annoyed and frustrated with the runaround I was getting from Tracy Bernardo, and I became concerned about the possibility of being scammed.  I started doing some research on the internet about him.  Tracy had led me to believe that he was the breeder of the mini pigs, and that the man in Texas whom he referred to as CJ, was "his shipper". 

 My research on the internet discovered that Tracy was not the breeder, but "his shipper in Texas" was actually the breeder.  This raised a huge red flag  and my concern about  being scammed grew.  I found Trace Cousaire's web site and called her.  I explained my situation with Tracy Bernardo.  She was very helpful and gave me CJ Tobler's phone number.  I then called CJ and told him about my frustrating situation regarding Tracy Bernardo changing the shipping dates so many times.  CJ then informed me that while he was away a new employee was caring for the animals and something had happened to my piglet, and it couldn't be found.  He said that he advised Tracy Bernardo of the situation, and told Tracy to tell me what had happened.  Instead of being honest and telling me the truth about my piglet, Tracy chose to withhold this very important information and instead thought it would be a better idea to keep changing the shipping date.  I don't why he could possibly think this charade or tactic could have a positive outcome.  Needless to say, my experience has caused me to question Tracy Bernardo's ethics.

 After speaking to CJ and finding out the truth about the piglet I purchased, CJ was very responsive to take and send photos of piglets that were similar to the original one I purchased.  We now have our piglet and CJ has been supportive throughout the entire process and continues with his support.


Victim 13 

My website was hacked with some of the accurate detailed information about Tracy Bernardo of was removed.

 Yet another and Tracy J. Bernardo client has come forward.  He also sold her the same piglet that he sold to another client, and one month later, no piglet.  She did more research on the internet and found  There she saw the pics and bio of her piglet.  She called Tracy L. Cousaire, only to realize that Tracy Bernardo has been cheating some of his clients by not turning over the contracts and payments to the breeder, Piggy Essence.  HOW MANY MORE CHEATED TEACUPPIGSFORSALE.COM CLIENTS WILL COME FORWARD?????


Victim 14 

Let me start by the pain Tracy Bernardo put my family through.  We purchased a expensive micro pig last year.  Tracy was difficult to reach and he often did not know much about my piglet (he doesn't have a ranch or farm he keeps these pigs on--mine came from a breeder in Texas).  After one week of having the little guy I woke up and he couldn't breathe! I took him to the emergency vet immediately where he passed away some hours later.  I called Tracy immediately and left a couple voicemails.  Eventually I heard back from Tracy saying I needed a necropsy report or they couldn't replace my pig--he didn't ask for this nicely but said it like "if you killed the pig then why would I send you another?"  I had already lost my little guy and then I had to drive 2 hours to UC Davis (a premier pet hospital with doctors who deal with pigs all the time) for the necropsy.

This was all traumatic enough, but what Tracy Bernado did after this caused my family more pain than I can describe.  The vets at UC Davis determined that my little guy had a birth defect in his nose and he was seriously ill when shipped.  He had pneumonia as well as bacteria in his brain.  Clearly I can not put bacteria in a pig's brain in one week, yet Tracy insisted that I probably wasn't caring for him properly and accused me of keeping him in a cold room all day, which was anything but the case! That pig didn't leave my arms for the week I had him! I asked in multiple emails for the accusations to stop until the necropsy report came back because speculating was just causing more damage.  I have all the emails if he claims that didn't happen....

Still even after the vet report clearly stated I had nothing to do with the pig's death Tracy relayed false information to the breeder who provided the pig and would not send through the necropsy report--he instead summed it up over the phone!  After 2 additional weeks of hell the breeder (NOT TRACY BERNARDO) replaced my pig and I have never been happier with my new little guy. 

All I can say is Tracy Bernardo is a man who does not value the lives of the piglets, proper business or ethics! If you have a choice, take your money somewhere else!


Victim 15 

This could be a little long just a heads up.

After doing a lot of research we decided to purchase a POCKET NANO 12-20lb pig.  I searched many sites and although the price was a little bit higher it appeared to be that using http://teacuppigsforsale… would be a good option.  I contacted the "OWNER" Tracy Bernardo who was quite pleasant on the phone and answered every phone call the first day and answered the many remaining questions that I had. We decided that day after talking to Tracy that we would be putting a deposit down on our new teacup pig.  We decided to purchase a tuxedo male pig for $3500.  After our deposit I was promised a "information packet" and updates to when my pig would be born. I sent multiple emails, called multiple times, and left multiple messages with out any response.  A week went by before I got any response as to even if my deposit was received.  BTW DO NOT DO A DIRECT DEPOSIT (WIRE TRANSFER is the way) he will provided you with all of the bank account information to do the deposit.  FINALLY I received my information packet and response back that he did receive my deposit.  With in a week I had made another deposit and again it took at least a week to get a response back that it was even received.  All while calling his cell phone (NO ANSWER), emailing his email (NO ANSWER), calling the 1-800 # (this is a hired answering service amazing people but they have nothing to do with Tracy and only take message to be emailed to him.)  I continued to inquire about our pig to see if it was born with no answer.  Finally I receive an email stating that the pigs were born SEVERAL weeks ago!! I just put over $2000 down on a pig and you can't even communicate with me that my pig was born!?!

Our next problem was getting photos!! "We have not taken pictures of this new litter yet Nicole, so I can't really get you an update today. As soon as I do (this week), I will let you know." I was always given a TIME LINE in his email of this week or by the weekend or Friday and was NEVER given a follow up by the time line that he set.  So again we waited and waited.  We finally get an email of the pigs and are told by Tracy that they have no tuxedo MALES which is what we were originally going to get.  Ok fine, not the end of the world but we finally decided on our beautiful little girl! So needless to say we had made our final deposit now paying $3500 and just have to wait for her to be old enough.

So again, we wait. I send multiple emails, multiple phone calls with no response about when our shipping would be.  Finally I hear from his stating that "Shipping will be next week. I'm sorry, but I had to move some things around due to shipping outside the states of a large quantity of breeder pigs and if they don't go out on time, all the thousands we spent on testing and health certificates will expire. I can't get them out and get out this week's current shipments here in the U.S. at the same time. I will have your Itinerary for you this weekend for the flight."  I understood that as a business person he would not want to loose money however I SPENT $3500 as well!! This isnt chump change for anyone along with what was spent at home to prepare for our piggy! 

So two weeks went by before I even heard anything. Again multiple calls to his cell phone, emails, and contacts with his answering service with NO RESPONSE. Here is the point when I went a little crazy googling information and calling other pig breeders and finding out a whole bunch of awful information about Tracy and learning that he doesnt even own pigs he is used as a broker (finds the pigs and sells them with out usually even touching them!)

So finally a email was received: "I will have your micropig delivered next week. I will book the flight this weekend. I am having some serious problems with the piglets, many of which had diarrhea and it spread throughout the litters. I have had numerous vet appointments this week, many more delays on deliveries, including much longer wait times than your experiencing now (not that that is any consolation) I lost my phone somewhere on the ranch and have ordered another which came in on Tuesday. The phone was not programmed correctly for my phone number on the Sprint Network, so I had to have another sent which arrived last night. I'm in the midst of answering 225 phone calls, voice mails and of course lost all the texts on my phone.  I have tried a couple times to figure out a flight into Reno, but that has also figured out to be much more difficult than I anticipated for "pet flights".

So finally our pig arrives! Again he wont answer any emails about her birthday or the "weight guarantee certificate." She is about 3 months old (per the vet) and is already 8lbs and we have had her a week and three days.  She had worms per the vet but at 3 months and 8 lbs I can do the math for a full pig..Oh well a birthday would be nice! I will continue to send pic and weight updates per the contract we signed!


Victim 16

**SCAM** Tracy Bernardo represents himself as a breeder when he is only a pig broker!!  He switch and baits the pigs. 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!


 Victim 17

Complaint: not honoring guarantee, selling a pig that is not what was shown and advertised. unreasonable to work with. we bought a piglet on March 13, 2012. Was told our pig weighed 4 lbs. when she arrived she weighed 5.5 pounds. I contacted them and was told my weight guarantee was not valid because i was feeding her too much. She was listed as being spayed, sent to us and was not spayed. He then told me he would refund the money for her spaying. He now has blocked me from his website, emails come back to me as spam and he will not return my calls. I have a copy of her listing where it states spay and neutering is included in the price. She is not the teacup pig that we purchased. I beleive it was a switch and bait scheme. She had a 16 lb weight guarantee and is now 9 lbs and only 6 months old! I've been in touch with another breeder who sent me a feeding schedule which is right on track as to what I've been doing and she still is gaining weight.


Victim 18

Complaint: Purchased a micro pig from ******. After taking my money has finally stopped from all forms of contact with me. I purchased a micro pig called pepper from ******. After making initial contact I filled out a contract with ******. Then filed an for an online transfer of funds to his company Lighthouse Media Group on January 2nd. After trying several email attempts and phone calls I received a final email on February 15th 2012 telling me the pig was coming just to be patient. It is June the 22nd now. I've called and left voice mails for him as well as emails with no response. He has the money and the pigs and I have nothing.


Victim 19

We have been in business since 1999 and with large professional clients such as Microsoft who trust our stats, we certainly have a reputation to uphold and thus do our best to keep our customer's happy. In Tracy's case, the continued threats we have received via email and phone calls made us decide to let Merchant Services handle any further direct communication.

One of his business he ran was an online currency broker website called, we found it by typing his name on Google and it's also present on his website portfolio on his web design website, after typing in Forexfacet we came upon a ripoff complaint by a webcam model who said she was never paid money for her work, the company went bankrupt and now they're running We searched up the Webcam company's name on Google and there you have it, the person who owned that webcam model website was none other than Tracy Bernardo.

Lighthouse Media Pro has an annual sales volume of 1M – 1,999,999. For more information contact TRACY BERNARDO, OPERATIONS MANAGER or go to

Upon learning this information we research for his companys review and we saw the trademark scam Tracy's been known for.

Victim 20

I have worked for this studio for a year, and they went bankrupt in September and have withheld all of their models money. We haven't seen a dime of it, and they ignore all attempts to get in touch except to say that they have gone bankrupt- so basically we're all out of luck. 

DO NOT apply to model for them, they may put you to work on a site but they WILL KEEP YOUR MONEY! I promise! They are dishonest, and so shady. They are still accepting new models, allowing them to work, and stealing their profits because the girls don't know any better.

DO NOT waste your time. I know I'll never see a penny of the hundreds I'm owed. They are HORRIBLE!!!


Victim 21

I was a webcam model for Lighthouse media, and I haven't been paid last week and I've been trying hard to get in contact with them and no one is responding to emails. 

Is anyone else having this problem? 
Has anyone been able to contact them? 


Victim 22

Lighthouse Media Group LLC- the webcam modeling "agency." They are liars and cheaters. They supposedly went bankrupt (when they stole all the money from their models) but seem to now be running a currency swap site called Forexfacet. The story about the model scheming and stealing credit card info and taking money is a lie. It's sad they feel the need to make up lies in order to cover up their own dishonesty. Hopefully they're not longer taking advantage of people, but I highly doubt they developed a conscience.

Also keep in mind these are his victims that actually spoken out, imagine how many victims he has out there that hasn't come foward? The lies, scam and deceit this man has pulled for years is staggering. He's been getting away with it so long he feel confident, this is why we do what we do to expose this man!

There you have it folks! Wise words for a man with 22+ known victims of scams, anger, rage, lies, deceits, threats, slander, attacks, and harassments!

You have to watch out for sociopaths, they don’t care about anyone but themselves, they’re selfish, egotistical and narcissistic, they lack empathy for others which is how they’re able to do what they do to their victims and feel no remorse. Take Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy or even Jodi Arias all criminals who were caught red handed yet have never admitted to their own guilt but instead lied, made up stories, blame their victims when all else failed tried to play the victim role.

This is what Mr. Bernardo has exactly done,  even after all the court cases, victims stories, and past history he still believe he has done nothing wrong and is still out there trying to make money by deceiving people, hiring fake article writers to portray himself in a good light when he is anything but that. Now he wants to make up quotes about ethics, something he clearly lacks.

People had rage people Mr. Bernardo cheated them, attacked them, slandered them, tried everything to make their life miserable so they’ll back off on questioning his pig scam, they had a legit reason too, but what does Tracy carry rage about? He rages when clients want their product they paid for! Want to know the status of their product they paid for! Want their money back! Have questions about the weight and health of the product! Exposes his scam! He rages over the thing he’s supposed to be helping his clients with.

Typical sociopath, this is why Tracy Bernardo is being exposed on the level he is, after dozens of victims who came out, written about him, shared their stories, he somehow believes he’s a saint and has a clear conscious, if he can feel that way after that many victims imagine how brave he is with his next victim, someone that does not know about his deceitful intent would probably feel helpless against Mr. Bernardo because Mr. Bernardo will not hesitate to turn the tables on them to lie and slander them. Be careful with who you do business with online.

TB pure evil and sinister.

AUTHOR: Cara - ()

This man is a moron, how about we all attack his family, slander them, scam their money, take away thousands of dollars of his family and daughters future, send them death threats, call them late night to intimidate them, slander him with molestation allegations, cause them emotional and physical pain and illness, and call his family’s place of work to threaten and slander them, if he ever tries to expose or retaliate against us LETS TALK ABOUT ETHICS, let’s talk about the rage in his heart he’s going to take to his grave.

You see how stupid that sounds? This man is a sociopath, he will do and say anything to take the spotlight away from him, he will say and do the most disgusting things to bring you down, and he will throw the whole kitchen sink at you! It doesn’t matter to him; he will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat! Drive over you and then put it on reverse! But the second someone does something to him, HE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT ETHICS! This ladies and gentlemen is why you should stay away from Tracy Bernardo at all cost.

He will never let you win, he will make all the excuses in the world, he will try to place the blame on you, slander you, try and make you out for being a bad person even though all you’re doing is trying to get what was owed to you due to Tracy’s malicious lies and deceit. I do not see any rage in anyone’s heart but Tracy Bernardo’s heart! He believes the world revolves around him so when he scams, attacks and slander you, you just have to sit there, do nothing, lose thousands of dollars of our hard earn money and move along because if we say or do anything to get our money back, we’ll carry this RAGE in our hearts. Textbook sociopath, thanks for showing us Tracy.

Rage huh?

AUTHOR: Matt - ()

"If you carry rage in your heart and mind, you'll carry it to your grave". - Tracy Bernardo

Oh like the rage after you lashed out at your victims after they tried to get their money back? Calling them late night to intimidate them? Calling their work office to try and slander them? Accusing a professional teacher of child molestation after she exposed you? Steal thousands of dollars of peoples hard earn money with no remorse? Kept on calling and threaten a huge reputable company after you didn’t like their pricing policy to the point they had to transfer his calls to another department?

You lashed out to clients to the point they started making websites to warn others about you! When your victims try and speak out on you, you threaten them with legal action. YOU’RE A HYPOCRITE and a walking CONTRADICTION! You’re going to carry that to your grave along with your disgusting manipulative character, your court cases, your accusations, and the pain and trouble you caused your victims, you have a lot of dirt on your hands, but you probably don’t see that because you’re a narcissistic sociopath, you believe everything you do is right while everyone you screwed over is wrong, you’re the type of person that is wrong with this world.

Everyone can see it from a mile away, they have exposed your character time after time, and after all that you have done you dare talk about rage and what people will carry in their grave? You're an old and bitter man with a short temper, you've been exposed to the point where people made websites about you, exposed you to whole classrooms, took you to court...ect

You're not fooling anyone, you know what you did, you know the dirt you have on your hands and you're doing exactly what people have been saying about you this whole time, screw people over and trying to place blame on them, carrying rage in your heart and mind, PLEASE look in the mirror, scams after scams, victims after victims, even a teacher told us that you were the most fouled mouth man she's ever came across which then led her to get accused of being a child molester by you! Absolutely disgusting, thanks for proving our case that you’re a sociopath who will never take blame for your disgusting acts but rather blame others and point fingers when you, yourself is the problem.

Let’s look at Tracy Bernardo’s pure heart and mind that he’s going to take to the grave with him.

  1. Lies, deceits, and misrepresents.
  2. Has attacked long suffering and waiting buyers in emails and at their place of work.
  3. He threatens them and has called them as late as midnight to intimidate. 
  4. He is vicious, rude, nasty, mean, lies, smears, and will do whatever it takes to keep selling piglets as the breeder, when he is not.  Some cheated clients have hired attorneys and are pursuing this legally. 
  5. He takes the money, promises, promises, then desperately tries to find a switch piglet from another breeder, as he is not a breeder. 
  6. Another couple called, due to seeing the same pics of micro mini piglets on  They had wired over $4000 to Tracy Bernardo, dba Lighthouse Media Corp, LLC, back in late 
    December 2011. They are pursuing this legally.
  7. I have even received an anonymous death threat.  Mr. Bernardo does not tell the truth in many regards. 
  8. Mr. Bernardo, then called every associate in the client's office and 
    smeared the client and threatened. Keep in mind; we have a prescribed care program from my vet, Dr. Williams. 
  9. He is a desperate individual who will lie, manipulate, scam, cheat, smear, and attempt to destroy.  He wants to take the spotlight from himself and his wrongs by any means.
  10. Needless to say, my experience has caused me to question Tracy Bernardo's ethics.
  11. My website was hacked with some of the accurate detailed information about Tracy Bernardo of was removed. 
  12. Bought a pig from the guy, He called me until he had money.  Made attempts to call.  He told me to back off.  Never heard from again.
  13. When he called me today 5/16/2013 I address him on these matters and he froze, stuttered, denied and hung up on me. He needs to be sought after. And everyone needs to be aware! DO NOT TRUST ANY OF THESE SITES. It’s all Tracy and a scam!
  14. I seriously felt I was being punked by the most unprofessional foul mouthed man I have ever dealt with... Many emails and voice messages left by him cursing me out and threatening me because I have been relentless in my message BUYER BEWARE!! 
  15. My girlfriend got anxious and sick because of him and me too I had problems with the money and with my health. This guy is a criminal. I'm building with my attorney, with the Better Business Bureau and the police department a big case against him. 

And that is only the tip of the iceberg, ladies and gentleman I present to you Tracy Bernardo, the man with the pure kind heart that he will take to his grave, supposedly.

Tracy Bernardo the biggest hypocrite ever!

AUTHOR: Claire - ()

Look at this statement Tracy Bernardo has posted on his Facebook.

“Not only are our children being attacked at their own schools, but we are being attacked just driving to work on our roads, or even being attacked online. There is so much violence and rage today in America. "If you carry rage in your heart and mind, you'll carry it to your grave". - Tracy Bernardo

What a disgusting hypocrite, stealing thousands from helpless victims, attacking them afterwards, death threats, calls to their homes late night to intimidate them, calls to their work place to slander them, made allegations to an English teacher of child molestation, doesn’t hold up on his guarantees and right away blames the clients then blocks them, disgusting voicemails to victims, has prior criminal records and DUI’s on his records, slanders a reputable company because he doesn’t agree with their prices and pretty much anything that comes out of his mouth is a lie.

Ladies and gentlemen I present to you a sociopath, someone who makes a life screwing other people over then instead of taking fault he starts blaming everyone and everything for his own repulsive behavior. His has left an extensive footprint online, research his name, his companies that he owned in the past, his websites…ect You’ll find nothing but scams and victims. He’s quick to manipulative, scam and slander everyone but the second people fight back he wants to cry injustice, what a disgusting hypocrite.

Don’t you ever cry about being attack when you’re the one that opened the can of worms, you’re the one that left people feeling helpless and physically ill, you’re the one that took thousands of dollars of their hard earn money away from them, you’re the one that kept on attacking those you scammed, you’re the one who was sued in court many, many times, you’re the one that tried so hard to bring those who exposed you down in every way possible, you’re the one with the nasty, disgusting, vile and foul mouth! Look in the f***ing mirror! You’re a piece of s*** to society; your track record proves everything as well. You think you could just scam dozens of people out of an average of 3-4 thousand dollars and think no one will research and expose you? The funny thing is that you make it easy for us, all your scam websites are the same on you use in your web design portfolio.

You reap was you sow, you have been exposed over and over again, you must be a true sociopath and narcissist individual to think you can do that to normal hardworking people and not face any repercussions from your victims, their friends, families and students? Everyone knows about you, they all saw the path of destruction you brought; you were even exposed to a whole class of English students, that’s how disgusting and sick you are! Open your god d**n eyes and stop trying to play the victim role.

You even tried to slander after being billed for the pricing option you chosen! A company that has done business with Microsoft and has a great track record, the moment something doesn’t go your way your first line of defense is to attack and slander them even though it was your fault, lets read a quote from them.

“We have been in business since 1999 and with large professional clients such as Microsoft who trust our stats, we certainly have a reputation to uphold and thus do our best to keep our customer's happy. In Tracy's case, the continued threats we have received via email and phone calls made us decide to let Merchant Services handle any further direct communication.”

This man is a sociopath and a walking contradiction; he is the kind of people you need to watch out for, the kind of people who appear to be normal and charming due to their egoistical and narcissistic persona. Once they grab you into their web of lies and deceit they will exploit you and string you along for their own selfish ride, once you found out you’ve been had that’s when they turn the tables around on you because they’re pathological liars, this is how all sociopaths work. Stay away from this lunatic at all cost!

A pathetic lowlife with anything to offer.

AUTHOR: Coward! - ()

If you look at one of his court findings it was Tracy filing a restraining order against someone. Funny this man tries to act tough behind his computer and phone but the moment someone gets up close and personal with him he’s quick to file a restraining order, what a coward. This old fat man with the receding hairline is pure garbage in every way possible, his actions and character will forever be on the Internet for everyone to see. Thank you for allowing us to expose this pile of garbage!

TB is a sociopath.

AUTHOR: Karen - ()

Proof that Tracy Bernardo is a sociopath, be warned everyone. He fits almost every characteristics of a sociopath to a tee!

1. Sociopaths are usually extremely charming and charismatic. Their personalities are described as magnetic, and as such, they generate a lot of attention and praise from others. 

  • Sociopaths are great orators. They usually use poetic language and are able to carry on long monologues or stories that are hypnotic and capture the attention of those around them.
  • Sociopaths have delusions of grandeur, and oftentimes feel overly entitled to certain positions, people, and things. They believe that their own beliefs and opinions are the absolute authority, and disregard the opinions of others.
  • Sociopaths are rarely shy, insecure, or at a loss for words. They have trouble suppressing emotional responses like anger, impatience, or annoyance, and constantly lash out at others and respond hastily to these emotions.

Notice how many of his victims have said in the beginning he was very pleasant to talk too? And that he carried a conversation very well. Also lashing out emotional responses such as anger, impatience and annoyance and responds hastily to these emotions, bingo! Tracy has lashed out those exact emotions through phone calls, emails, and any means of communication he can get a hold of; he has done this to everyone including teachers and huge companies when he doesn't get his way.

2. Sociopaths exhibit abnormally spontaneous and daring behavior. They seem to act outside of the realm of social norms, and may do bizarre, risky, or outrageous things without assessing the potential repercussions.

  • Sociopaths can be criminals. They may be con artists, kleptomaniacs, or even murderers. Most sociopaths are not violent criminals, however.
  • Sociopaths are professional liars. They fabricate stories and make outlandish, untruthful statements, but are able to make these lies sound convincing with their confidence and assertiveness.

Criminals and con-artist, ding ding! Tracy Bernardo has been caught in many scams which includes his bait and switch and has a history of stealing his own clients’ money, when confronted he place blame on his own victims. They're professional liars and fabricate stories and make outlandish, untruth statements, but are able to make these lies sound convincing with their confidence and assertiveness. Now that fits Tracy to the tee! He lied about being a pig breeder, he lies about his weight guarantee, he made up stories he was going to the vet with a client’s pig when he was not, he lied that it was raining so he couldn’t work on his farm, he made outlandish statements of one of his clients being a child molester.

Because sociopaths are such dominant leaders, they are usually able to attract a following of some kind. These people tend to be weaker, more passive individuals who have been intoxicated by the sociopath's charm.

  • Sociopaths are incapable of experiencing guilt or shame for their actions. They rarely apologize for their behavior, and are unaware of the emotional, physical, and financial repercussions of their actions. As a result, they betray, threaten, and harm those around them without feeling any type of remorse.
  • Sociopaths are manipulative. They constantly try to influence and dominate the people around them, and tend to seek positions of leadership.
  • Sociopaths are incapable of experiencing love, and likely will not have had healthy romantic relationships in the past. They are only concerned with their own interests, and use compassion as a tool to manipulate others, but are not genuinely compassionate.

Incapable of experiencing guilt and shame for their actions, Tracy Bernardo has never apologize for his behavior but rather blames his victims and continues to harass and intimidate them; he goes to any length to make them suffer. He is unaware of the emotional, physical, and financial repercussions of their actions. He's manipulative and sociopaths will likely not have a healthy romantic relationship in the past, Tracy Bernardo is a single divorce man, figures.

If the sociopath you are dealing with is not a family member or other loved one who you feel responsible for, then it's best to disengage with the person to avoid the potential negative impact that he or she can have on your life.

  • Stop contacting the person, and avoid situations/places where you may run into the person, if possible.
  • If the person does not cooperate and refuses to leave you alone, then you may want to consider changing your telephone number and other contact information. If he or she proceeds to stalk you, then consider filing for a restraining order.

Sounds about right, Tracy has a hard time leaving his victims alone, one of his victims did not even do business with him, all he did was emailed him for a quote then decided not to do business with Tracy after finding out about him and Tracy slandered his business online. Do not give Tracy your contact and personal information, it could backfire on you!

  • The key characteristics of a sociopath include: having no conscience, inability to treat others as human beings, with feelings and rights and inability to learn from experience, from life.
  • One result of this last is gross immaturity, though it may be hidden unless one knows the person well. A sociopath behaves as if he/she were the only person in the whole world and as if everyone else just existed for their benefit and had no existence in their own right.  
  • Sociopaths treat other people as toys and hanker after the power to control and hurt their "nearest and dearest." Many are monumentally self-important: They may pretend to be millionaires, when in reality they are sliding towards financial disaster. Habitual dishonesty.

Tracy has the inability to treat others as human beings, and the inability to learn from experience, from life. Which is why he is still out there doing what he does, he has a history of scamming people and does not learn from it. He also tries to portray himself as very wealthy, on one of his websites he claims to have made several million dollars yet feels the need to scam others so he could pay his rent and car payments.

  • It is very difficult to recognize a sociopath but in a nutshell, a sociopath is a parasite. There is no help because a sociopath does not want to be helped. A sociopath will attract you with his charm and bring you to his side, then he will toy with you, lie and show no remorse.
  • Sometimes there will be a fake smile in his face while he engages in his malicious ways. When confronted, he will deny any responsibility, then back away from you and blame you for whatever wrong he did. 

Tracy is able to gain clients because he's able to charm you and engage you in conversation, he has toyed with his clients, lie and shown no remorse. If you look at all his picture uploaded, he tends to put on a fake smile to hide his malicious ways. After dozens of victims have come out and spoken out about him he has denied any responsibility, then back away from you and blame you for whatever wrong he did.

A failure in life...

AUTHOR: Victim - ()

Tracy Bernardo is a failure in life period, he does not try to help nor care about anyone but himself; everything that he does the main objective at the root of it is to benefit himself that’s why he’s a nobody in life. He can’t comprehend that in order to get anywhere in life or to build a lasting successful company he needs to invest interest into helping and serving others instead of taking their money then stepping all over them.

Tracy is what’s wrong with doing business online because it allows a psychopath to hide behind a persona, charm people, manipulate them and then steal from them. Then he relies on intimidation and his lawyer in order to scare off his victims when they try to expose him or get their money back. Tracy will not have no problems going to court even though he’s the one that broke the law because he’s a pathological liar and a manipulator, he’ll have no problems lying in court, lying is second nature to him. Just look at all his contradicting statements his victims have pointed out about him, he lies so much that his lies start getting absolutely ridiculous and he then can’t keep up with his other lies and starts contradicting himself.

"No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar." - Abraham Lincoln 

Tracy Bernardo is a leech, everyone he has done business with will tell you the same thing, it’s difficult to get rid of him, he keeps on attacking and attacking because he is mentally ill and believes the world revolves around him. Everything everyone does is wrong while everything he does is right, according to his books. In his eyes he believes he is god’s gift to women even though he doesn’t realize how everyone else sees him by the looks from his pictures, he looks a bit overweight, short and stalky, greying and balding and very unattractive.

Reality really needs to hit this man; he’s not getting any younger and has wasted most of his life being a scumbag to society. Imagine if one of your love ones spent $4,000+ dollars to a person and not only got ignored afterwards, didn’t receive the product as described and then started getting harassed and threatened, how would you feel? This is exactly what this disgusting man has done to many. One day someone will take advantage of his little daughter, and he’ll realize how others felt when he did it to them.

Stay away from Tracy J Bernardo, he's nothing but trouble and time after time has proven how he has scammed and tried to distroy others lives. A scumbag of society.

I wouldn't be surprised...

AUTHOR: Matteo - ()

If his daughter grew up to work on the streets, that's all his genes are good for. He's so quick to throw out molestation allegations against innocent people I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s actually doing so in self-reflection to hide his own demons that he’s a child molester himself. His character and picture fits the image of a pedophile to a tee. He tends to find the weakness of others and exploits it such as a pedophile would do.

This man has already been proven a conman, scam artist, swindler, manipulator, pathological liar, stalker, exploiter, narcissistic, egomaniac and a criminal. He has underlying mental issues and is unable to connect with normal people in society which is why he has no problem cheating them and then attacking them. This man is a loner, he has no friends or fans, no one likes him, he tries to fit in but everyone can easily see through his persona. His fake laughs and his yeah, no, yeah, no words he always uses, words of conman.
