Hey Nothing, remember the many comments we posted in the past? Where did they go? I bet Gregg got them to remove them! So much for freedom of speech. Anyway, beware of Gregg Brie, he's been lying and stealing for 20 years. Trust me, he stole from me and we were friends.

Ryan... you are a tycoon? i also know gregg, and came to the conclusion that this is you....the story i heard was you were pretty guilty yourself. No one knows what the end result will be.. but maybe you should lay off...Not sure if i ever met you.... but i have heard your name...

Who exactly are you Hazelnuts... you are a nut? If we never met then how can you possibly conclude who I am? How do you know Gregg and what's in it for you to be defending him? Only Gregg or his family could possibly defend him. And we both know what he does. Let's not kid ourselves.

By the way Hazel... I'm 98% confident that I know who you are, and I don't think you want me to start naming names and exposing you on here. If u try to divert this forum towards me, then I will conirm your identity, and let evryone know the truth about you. I can sleep at night knowing I never hurt anyone, can you?

Ryan...we hear your real estate business is not doing too well....is this the reason for your poison pen? Maybe your wife doesnt know about your illicit dealings, not only in your past..but present as well. Maybe she should.

We hear that Greg has made his deposits into escrow. Regardless of his situation, he did so much for the residents of this county.....and as I read the papers, and see the struggling continuing, where are all the rest of you with your donations and help.????Guess he was the only one who cared huh.

And just to add.....Lets just see what happens in october....if all is paid and done...then great...if not...then the next steps occur. Regardless, thanks to Mr Brie my family did not lose their home...had food to eat...clothes on their back....and to be quite honest, i couldnt care less where the money came from!!! Whether it was his, stolen, found...dont really care...B/c he was the ONLY ONE who ever took the time to listen to my sister. Social services, etc couldnt give a damn...and without him, we would be homless and destitute. So I choose to give him the benefit of the doubt and wait untilo october. My only thoughts on the 2 of you is that you became greedy....and didnt get your spoils. and if you lost your greed so my family could be warm in the winter.....then im happy. Thank you gregg.

Gregg did pay the money back and none of you know what really happened. Stop reading the papers..unless you know him you have no idea what a great person he is or what truly happened here.
Love reading comments from people that have no idea what the facts are.

Your facts are incorrect... But regardless, I am happy that someone helped your sister if that is true. The government should never turn a cold on people in need. You are so wrong to feel that it is okay to hurt good people by hurting others.... anyway, I won't write your names on this board... although I could name the few people's names who I know would defend him. Those people should know that I genuinely once cared for them.

fact gregg hasnt paid back 5 cents. he is a liar and cheat and will never be anything more. the best thing for all involved would be prison and restatution. anything positive posted here is more than likely gregg himself lying to himself and everybody else as usual.

To Someone That Knows....you know very little. Though Gregg was very nice to many and helped people in need, he also stiffed some when promising to give them a hand.

And, if the money was stolen, his giving some away doesn't make it right.

I happened to be in court for something else and saw what happened. He doesn't go back to court again. He's heading to state prison.
