Back in July, 2000, Luna Information Systems CEO Farid Khoujinian was outed by Chronicle investigative ace Todd Wallack for faking his resume. Peninsula private investigator Barry Nadell was quoted in a Chron article saying "If I were a venture capitalist and I learned this person . . . boldly lied to me on his background, how do I know he is not taking my money and putting a dollar in research and development, and another dollar in a Swiss bank account?"

But Nadell had the modesty to refrain from saying "I told you so."

"This goes to the overall concept that you have to do background checks," Nadell said when we caught up with him attending a Las Vegas rodeo last week. "I know America is supposed to be a place where everyone gets second chances. But when you look at the recidivism rate, and look at the fact there are so many people convicted of crimes, chances are, if someone's done something once, they're going to do it again."

A spokesman for Bricsnet did not return a call requesting comment.
