Fred Brito becomes talk of the town in Eugene

News of Fred Brito aka Gomez di Maria's most recent firing in Eugene, OR has been big news for the small city of 160,000 residents. After his employers with the Downtown Athletic Club discovered Brito had been hired using a largely fabricated resume, an insider tipped off both this blog and multiple news outlets.

Camilla Mortensen with the Eugene Weekly broke the story first. She was able to contact and briefly converse with Brito, who, of course, told her that "the blame for hiring someone who lies on their resume lies with his employer." As is his modus operandi after being caught, Brito also told Mortensen that he was working on a book about his cons (he's made this same claim on repeated occasions over the past decade, most regularly after being caught).

Other outlets to cover Brito's firing include:


It seems that Brito immediately ditched town after being fired, just as he did in Wyoming a few months prior. 

On the Weekly article, a 540 word comment was posted using the name Fred Brito calling reporters like Mortensen and this blogger cowards and stating, "you are not getting a rise out of me."

"This latest Eugene Weekly article is yet just another exercise of wasting time. Will it stop Fred Brito? Not at all," the commenter wrote.

Fred Brito sinks to new low by claiming to be taking care of long deceased parents



Fred Brito, going by the name G. "Carlo" diMaria, was fired this week by the Downtown Athletic Club in Eugene, OR where he had worked for three months as a general manager. According to our source, "he created such a hostile workplace that several of the tenured staff left in that time."

According to the source, the reason for his release was his employers discovering he had lied about his background and experience on his resume.

Among the false claims were that he had a more than 20 year work history with the "Southwest Hospitality Corporation."

Most shocking, however, is that Brito claimed that he had a gap in resume from 2012 to 2015 when, he stated, he "Relocated to Vancouver, Washington to care for my ailing parents until their passing in 2015."

According to previous statements made by Brito in news reports, his mother died in 2006 in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

From Burgerville to Wyoming, Fred Brito can't catch a break

Fred Brito made televised news again this month after being fired for "performance issues" while working at the Parkway Plaza motel in Casper, WY. He'd only been on the job for three weeks, working under the name Carlo Dimaria. According to his employer, it was only after he'd been let go that they'd discovered his long criminal history and repeated use of bogus resumes and fake names.

For Cheyenne, this was big enough news to make it to local TV news:


For readers of this blog, this, of course, is nothing shocking, and at this point, barely worth mentioning except for making it on the air of an ABC affiliate.

That said, it's not like this blog doesn't still get the occasional tip and keep up with Brito, such as where he was before moving to Wyoming.

Late last year, we learned he'd moved from Texas to Oregon, where his resume passed the muster of the HR department at restaurant chain Burgerville, landing him a management job in the Beaverton area. Shortly after Thanksgiving, the company discovered Brito's actual name and background and promptly let him go.

We hear Brito has retreated back to Texas.
