When Renato passed away my daughter thoughtfully set up a Go Fund Me when we learned his Italian retirement, which was our income, was suspended for one year to endure some classic Italian bureaucracy. Seventy of our closest loved ones, friends and family pitched in generously and happily to carry me through and the fund was a lifesaver.
But over the entire time the Go Fund Me was up, David Bret (under a few painfully obvious aliases and under his name) attempted and failed to have the fundraiser taken down. Try as he did the website easily recognized his attempts for what they were and in his last email he even pathetically claimed to have contacted the FBI.
Here is Bret's last and most recent attempt:
copy of my letter to GoFundMe and the FBI regarding your mother
begging for money on their site.
'Evelyn Zymaya & Renato Floris spent $30,000 suing me at Wakefield Court (July 2020) and didn't get a cent. On her blog (evelynzumaya.blogspot.com) she persistently boasts of owning properties in Turin and of selling many books (screenshots and Court evidence can be provided), also that she is taking action against "The Valentino World". Her daughter writes that she has only enough money to live on for a few months. How can she be wealthy and poor at the same time? This needs to be investigated."
**Now any normal person would not bother with such transparent hater drivel but in David Bret's case there is this to consider. He is not a normal person. My point being he is an obsessed stalker and hater of the highest order and has had me in his demented hyper focus since 2009. Here is just a sample snap of the times he has visited this blog as of April 3. I should note these do not reflect the many, many visits under his “hide me” proxy accounts and other aliases. With this evidence, behold the embarrassing extent of his obsession:
Why does he troll me virtually every minute of every day of his sad, sad empty life as he heads towards 12,000 times reading my blog?
Well, in 2016 an Italian court issued a verdict in my favor by handing down a guilty sentence stating that he defamed me. He was ordered to cease defaming me and pay damages. Those damages stand as of today because they are part of a court order and are due with interest plus all legal fees. I believe at last tally, these total somewhere around $80,000 and counting.
David Bret did not pay fifty cents on the court ordered damages because he claimed he was a penniless pensioner with no assets and this included claiming zero income from his hundreds of “books”(i.e. fictional porn pamphlets) which he alleged earned him an income in the “six figures.” Can't be wealthy and poor at the same time, right David?
He avoided an initial effort to collect by declaring bankruptcy. So we can say he claims to be a bankrupt pensioner who makes six figures selling his books. He is hardly the person to think he can smugly mock my unfortunate financial situation when he lies about his own wealth and apparently has not a penny to his name.
I say to him directly, because as he reads this blog all day long, he is sure to see it within seconds of my posting:
Did you learn nothing after losing one defamation lawsuit? And by emailing Go Fund Me you think you are contacting them? When you click “contact” next to my daughter's name, that e-mail is automatically forwarded to my daughter. Do you really think that your petty, slanderous lies have anything to do with our personal family situation? In reaching out to harass her you have stepped into definitive criminal harassment territory- low even for you.
I am not sure where you got the figure of $30,000 we spent on the lawsuit I filed against you and won... because it did not even reach $10,000. Granted we spent these thousands in the hopes that you would actually be forced to pay what was legally ordered of you, but alas, you couldn't.
Once again, I must say it was worth every penny to have that verdict stating on paper that you by the legal definition harassed Renato and I for years on end. It is a masterfully written document. Find it here:
To counter the other ludicrous statements included in your pathetic GoFundMe messages, I have never owned property in Italy. I believe Renato still owns some worthless acres of woods and farmland which he tried to sell, could not and ended up paying the taxes on that land by allowing local farmers to harvest the wood for a fee. In any case, my past financial circumstances are entirely irrelevant to the veracity of my current financial predicament.
It is seriously sad and profoundly embarrassing that you have checked this blog over 11,000 times yet still find time to reach out and defame me again and again and harass my kindhearted daughter.
Do you really think she is going to be convinced by you that I am a liar and a cheat? Everyone who knows me and the legacy of fine work Renato and I produced knows what a disgusting bully, liar and defamer you are.
What kind of person disrespects the deceased? What kind of person in this lowest moment in a person's life, attempts to ramp up their campaign of harassment and deprive someone in grief of the much-needed donations of their friends and family?
A person like you David Bret... a lonely, sad loser of a bankrupt pensioner who does not pay his debts and lies about absolutely everything. I would say get a life but it is no doubt too late for that for you.
Truly, it seems your life consists of checking my blog and not much else. Meanwhile even in this difficult time I am blessed by my lovely friends and family, surrounded by a rich life of love and comfort.
March on, my devoted reader! May you
find an iota of meaning to your existence outside of hating me.
