Re Daniel

Hi John, welcome and thank you for your posts, I also cannot open this link, maybe we have to be members of webshots??

I Would like some of the other members to come online before you post them in the public forum, so we may use the pm system!

Daniel Brenar photogallery

RE: Danial Brenar photogallery/ID:

Folks, truly sorry about address corruption(???) - again:

I tried to type into this message board, but the address gets corrupted by a series of dots.


As mentioned before, the early black & white photos have hand written notations. It's his name!!!

Perhaps more importantly, after reviewing the picture series, there is an initial conclusion:

He came from a poor family in eastern Europe (perhaps even Latvia).

In 1974, both the US & Canada had an open-door immigation policy for Latvians.

He may have settled in with his mother in Banff, Canada - his father then dead, and his mother working as a chambermaid in one of the many National Park resort hotels.

He never got a formal education, but re-invented himself with false degrees and so on.

What is so perplexing, and which seems to fit the 'fraud model', is his life style, as chronicled in his personal gallery. It's genuine. There are too many pictures taken in Shangai, China. There are too many online references on the Shanghai net-boards for housemates.

He has pictures of himself, all within the last 4 years, according to imbedded date stamps/camera codes, from many countries. Yet his so-called job is an English teacher is inconsistent???

Moreover, his computer skills are B+ ~ A-. We think he runs multiple scams, with Russian associates. Perhaps taking a page or two from the Nigerian playbook. After all, a mere teacher cannot afford this double life and ad blitzes, which are custom crafted - with untraceable IP addresses.

By-the-way, I know a lovely lady, who fell under his charm...and she has a serious case of Hepititus-C, which she swears came from him.

If there is justice in this world, let's do it. I'm going to!!!!!

I'm going to really have to get out my glasses and read the fine print. Those kid pictures are dated 1974. I can't read the city very well. Bad handwriting. In the meantime, here's our guy:


From Kansai scene:

HI! I AM SINGLE AMERICAN BUSINE Hi!I am single American business man.See my photo:http://thumb4.webshots.net/t/16/17/9/53/3/2974953030100951364CTHPCJ_th.jpg I want to improve Japanese, make friends and girlfriend!I have travelled to about 30 countries and now in Japan!I like Japanese food, kaiseki, shushi, its healthy EMAIL: <myfascination@hotmail.com>

The link will take you to the same picture that Marie (まりえ) posted above (post # 16).

Actually it looks like Kansai Scene has been seeded the way that other scammers seed dating sites.

Kansai Scene Webmaster & Brenar

What is going on at Kansai Scene message board?
Brenar posted two ads in two days. Someone placed a warning message with reference to this site. Then people started to post many of their own short horror stories; with reference to "nicefriendship11" and "alexveyer" fraud names.
Almost immediately, the webmaster pulled those, but left Brenar's stupid begging ads.
Can anyone explain what's going on?
I used to enjoy the lighthearted and silly ads there; but now it has all turned black and ugly.
Do KS webmaster and Brenar collude?
I remember a month back, Brenar tried to pretend he was an airline pilot flying international out of Kansai airport. The Kansai Scene board erupted into a furry of jokes and protests - and still Brenar's ad exists, and all other have been taken down?
Thanks, Dave

Bernar's Photo

The above link has been floating around the net for years. Its from a model agency site. He uses it mainly for his Goldman Sacks broker from Wall Street conjob. In the 1% chance it's him, it looks to at least 10 years old. We found a much larger version on the net, and had it reviewed. The origional copywriter owners names was erased and new background painted in. The analyst profferred the cheek bones are differenent than compared to the more recently located personal history album.

Moreover, the neck is encompassed with a lot of white outer fat migrating up to the eyes, which is consistent with high alcohol and/or high carbo. The dark eyes are consistent with lack of sleep/Prozac or Lithium/and/or combined with alcohol. The scores on his lips may be herpes simplex.
His arms are soft tissue with no muscle profile noted, which in an indication of long desk & computer hours.

Nevertheless, the volicity of his ad campaign increases again. Probably low on funds. Tomorrow, we are going to attempt to meet (or schedule) with Dream Train Management. This little fish is not going to escape.

Dream Train Internet must keeps accounts of such a regular.

Still trying to understand why the Kansai Scene webmaster ALWAYS protects this creep? There has to be involvement.

Hello Daniel

Hello daniel, As you now have the chance to see this site, I think it only fair that we let you know what we think of you! (By the way I will contact the webmasters on the other sites that you have joined as well)

I Think that you are very stupid!
Any one who takes advantage of the kindness and generosity of the Japanese ladies who fall for your lies, has got to be lower than a cockroach!
I have been lucky enough to have visited japan and was made very welcome, and was shown only courtesy and friendship! and to any one who abuses this trust and generosity I can only say that you are a disgrace to the human race!

It is NOT a sign of intelligence, to be able to cheat innocent and trusting nice people it is the act of a coward! and a parasite on society!

I do not consider you to be a man at all. A mans role is to help and protect ladies NOT to take advantage of their kindness!:mad:

As one of our ladies say 'we do not like you' And I fully agree with what she says.
I plan to help make your life most uncomfortable from now on!

I would welcome your feedback! But I think that you are too much of a coward to
speak out in the presence of honest people! !

After seeing his photo I saw him on the Hankyu Kobe train 2 days ago. He has blond hair now and he spoke English with a thick accent. He was with a pretty Japanese lady. Poor girl. I have tried to spread the info around and have caught him on the WhyNot Japan website. I hope some lady's father, brother, boyfriend nails this guy.

KS, Brenar war

War on Kansai Scene tonight:

Shit, it evolved into an all out blitzkreig between the webmaster, and many, many participants who objected to Brenars late afternoon posts. Death threats were flying.
I have lived in many places; and thus read many personals sites, but this was Internet hand-to-hand combat. +/-50 posts were taken out.

The webmaster at Kansai Scene has to have a bribe relationship with Brenar.

Today, people attacked the webmaster; yet nothing phased him.

Police, lawyers, Interpole and so on.

Interestingly, many Japanese women came forward to say a few simple words about their experiences with Brenar; yet that webmaster was like a hawk, swooping down to censor....

He may move around?
Maybe trying to hide as all cowards do!

I would like to invite any of his victims to contact me on this site!

We will NOT censor them and will try our best to assist them and help in any way we can!

I have been told that the victims may be a little reluctant to step forward! but I have great faith in the courage of the Japanese ladies and I will be very interested in hearing from any of them. Or any victim of this low life!

To post or contact, please register as a member, using a made up username or nickname is ok !

Daniel Brenar found me

Daniel Brenar found me:

I am Japanese female 30's, live and work K_____________.
I own and manage small international company xxxx xxxx.
I have office in New York City and Kobe, with employees
Many months ago, I exchanged letters with this person, without knowing who he truly is.
I was stupid, I did write too many informations.
He sensed money or assets I guess.
It writes more often and becomes very assertive, always wanting me call him.
One day, he IM me and writes he is waiting at my local train station.
Train station is only 300 meters from my office.
It seems he uses the IP tracing softwares.
I was so scared.
For months a man in office walk with to train station.
