Jaya Brandel: - Anyone traveling to, or currently in Bali , Indonesia, beware of the scamming, lazy fat con-artist Jaya Brandel. He will try to scam you out of money, and than, try to blame you for it. He is an EX-Pat loser, with a fat belly and no talent! He was diagnosed with HIV, and herpes, yet still tries to shag tourists, even though he is married. He thinks he brought punk-rocj and skate boarding to Bali, but really all he brought to bali was some sicj STDs.
