Alex Popovic Subway sandwich shop commando

| June 13, 2012 | 553 Comments

A lovely young lady who will remain nameless here sent the following piece to us about a guy she met in her local Subway sandwich shop while he was slicing and dicing and telling his war stories. She thought it was a little odd that he’d being working in a sandwich shop after he told her that he’d been advising President Bush on strategy for the global war against terror and did some research on the guy.

She’s been looking for a venue to publish her research when she discovered TSO’s battle against uncommon stupidity last week and settled on TAH.

This is Alex Popovic, CEO and Founder of Greyside Group; you can view his website here www.greysidegroup.com.

By their own admission they have the “Highest Legal, Moral, and Professional Business practices in the Industry”.

Let’s look at the first paragraph of his bio:

“Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Mr. Popovic immigrated to the Unites States in 1986, becoming a U.S. citizen in 1994. Earning a degree in Chemical Engineering at Florida State University, he garnered minors in mathematics and physics as well. In 1993 he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, rising to serve in elite U.S. Special Operations units for 10 years. Mr. Popovic participated in classified and unclassified missions throughout the world, including Liberia, Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan. He was awarded the Silver Star for valor and the Purple Heart for wounds sustained in combat. He has briefed former President George W. Bush, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld, and various national security advisors and national military command council members on strategies and tactics during the Global War on Terror after the events of 11 September 2001. ”

WOW! Impressive!

- Silver Star Recipient-
- Purple Heart Recipient
- Briefed former President George Bush and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld

The Real issue. Confirmation from the Marine Corps-

NO SILVER STAR. NO PURPLE HEART. NO CAR.

NOT EVEN A COMBAT ACTION RIBBON!

A degree at FSU? I see an Aleksandar Popovic with a degree from FSU….but he is a Serbian politician.

What a Coincidence!

Sounds like this guy would be working at a Subway store, not briefing former President Bush.

Which reminds me……he WAS a Subway manager, and managed to work his way up to owner. Maybe the CAR is a sandwich, not an award? (Chicken Avocado Ranch?)

Question of the day – With the Stolen Valor issue- doesn’t it seem like this poser has built an industry on military honors he has not received?

I’ve seen her documentation, but I’m not publishing it here at her request since she’s also approached ABC News.

    Alex “Silver Star” Popovic wrote a blog post on lawsuits…He has had his ass handed to him multiple times for screwing people but he still has the audacity to write on this??http://activerain.com/blogsview/4289885/litigation-101-what-to-expect-in-a-lawsuit-part-1

  3. Green Thumb says:

    This dirtbag is still avoiding calls.

  4. Green Thumb says:

    Several of his employees and co-workers, so I am told,, are aware of his criminal record, reputation and claims. They also have been provided links and documentation.

    Curious as to if they decide to act.

  5. Green Thumb says:

    I went to Subway and thought of this clown today.

    So I checked in.

    His co-workers are starting to figure it out.

  6. Update says:

    Looks like he is trolling Facebook and twitter to find veterans in AZ to exploit. In his online training he notes he sold Gayside but we all know he couldn’t give it away after being sue by Triple Canopy.

    Please pass the world to veterans in AZ to stay away from him.

    His twitter is @thealexpopovic and he tries to claim his name is trademarked so you can’t use it in anyway.

  7. none says:

    He is prowling around contacting people in the UK trying to secure more Maritime Security jobs…looking to ride a ship. Guess selling houses ain’t treating him well. Sold greyside? Laughable.

  8. none says:

    Alex Popovic is no longer with OMNI and is now with ‘associated properties’..His website now is branded with someone named ‘mike phillips’..He lasted 3 months at Omni..

  9. Alex Popovic says:

    So Alex Popovic is clearly trying to use SCRIB to air some dirty laundry. He published a number of public docs titled such things as: “Chris Mark AT&T PCI_Rob Caulfield Trust Commerce Federal Restraining order obtained by Greyside Group and CEO Alex Popovic”…what he fails to say is that he settled with the defendants…OH..and he lost to Triple Canopy..etc…He PAID Chris Mark, released him from non cmopetes etc…seems like Mr. Popovic lost…again…http://maritimerisk.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/popovic-and-greyside-settle-with-chris_mark.pdf

  10. A Proud Infidel says:

    Maybe he just needs to go back to cutting… WAIT, the sandwich meats there are pre-cut, and Popovic would be the type to slice a finger off and sue the franchise.

    ONCE a lowlife scumbag, ALWAYS a lowlife scumbag.

  11. Alex Popovic says:

    He is just pissed that he can’t even sell a fucking house…what a clown…This is, apparently, the “big news” he announced on this twitter. Let’s see…he publishes nonsense on the web. He still…1) lost his house…2)lost his fiance, 3)lost his company 4)has no real job 4) is known throughout the world as a Stolen Valor hero..5) has no combat (CAR)..list goes on to long to even continue. He sits at home..the sandwich man…can’t get a job…what a clown…nobody cares what he says…keep posting little boy…keep posting…

  12. Greyside has no phone says:

    Popovic is still schlepping his bs…https://www.facebook.com/semperfindmyhome

  13. GDContractor says:

    @518 Ha…as soon as I posted something there, I was blocked.

  14. nbcman54 says:

    Apologies to all if this has already been mentioned (I haven’t read all 500+ comments yet). Here he has a lot of really cool pictures of his time as a Las Vegas cop, a crab fisherman in Alaska and all sorts of other exciting activities.

  15. Greyside has no phone says:

    @520..he is wearing Gold wings..he never rated Gold wings…
    Crab fisherman? What has that hero not done? ;)

  16. nbcman54 says:

    @521 Tell the truth??

  17. GDContractor says:

    He has not, not given an interview to the Library of Congress.
    WTF?

  18. Sparks says:

    Okay folks. This guy came onto TAH WAY before I joined the dickweeds. So in short who is one, Alex Popovic and why should I hate him too. :D I know there’s a very good reason someone could lay on me in shorthand. I’m too lazy tonight to read 500 plus comments. Otherwise just call me a lazy fuck and I’ll break down and read them all. Ya bunch of dickweeds. :D Love and peace out.

  19. GDContractor says:

    @524 the turd made Green Thumb wait forever for a sandwich, and then overcharged him.

  20. Sparks says:

    @525 GDContractor…now…I hate him too! Made my brother, Green Thumb, wait for his delicious, mouth watering, hungry as hell for it, sandwich. That goes beyond the pale of decency! Overcharged him too! This guy is now on my short list. Who let da dogs out? Green Thumb did…on this guys ass! Man I love TAH! :D

  21. Green Thumb says:

    @all.

    Popovic is at Subway.

    In the men’s room.

    Waiting on you.

    His co-workers know. We will see what is next.

  22. Sparks says:

    @527 Green Thumb…I’m with ya bro. I’ve had the a-holes make me wait on a sandwich too. Nothing messes up a meal like a newbie, numbnuts trying to figure out how to make a sammich. And when they cut all the way through the bread so my shit falls the backside…then, “tell ‘em I’m comin’…and Hell’s comin’ with me!

  23. none says:

    Clearly Sparks is Ms. “Silver Star” herself. “The good Lord will always allow people to know where you are…” Sound familiar?

    This was an email from Ms. P to his GF…

  24. GDContractor says:

    Re crab fishing in Alaska.
    I went up in ’95 and fished for 2.5 seasons herring and salmon. The skipper of one of the boats I was on was from a well known Kodiak family that owned several boats. The skipper told me this story about how one time they took out a former Marine as a crewman on a crab trip (The boat name was the Marci J). Said the guy was bat shit crazy. Said they tied him up, put him in the chain locker, and set him on the dock in Dutch Harbor and left him there on their next trip in. That’s a true story, but I have no idea what year it happened or what the guy’s name was. The skipper didn’t tell me if the guy made a mean sandwich or not… at the time, it didn’t seem important.

  25. Green Thumb says:

    Popovic is nothing more than a common criminal, conman and bullshit artist who’s luck is about to run out(much like Phildo).

    When the hammer falls, Alex, you can always seek employment with All Points Logistics.

    You check the blocks, Alex.

    Just trying to help you out.

  26. Sparks says:

    @529 None…Missing your point I guess. Who is Ms. P and GF? And “Ms. Silver Star Herself”? Do I need to read all the previous posts to get it? Help me out here.

    $22k? Wonder if it can be paid in subway sandwich credits

  28. Sparks says:

    Okay Jonn can we get a rough IP local on NONE in posts and 529 and 533? Don’t have a clue what it is saying.

  29. none says:

    Really Mr. Smith?

  30. OIF '06-'07-'08 says:

    @529 and 533, “””””””WTF””””””” are you trying to say?

  31. Green Thumb says:

    @530.

    I can only imagine Rent Boy Alex knows a lot about crabs.

  32. Sparks says:

    @536 OIF ’06-’07-’08 Thank you VERY MUCH. Man I can’t make heads nor flip out of anything “none” is writing. Thank you, I thought I was the only one out of sync on these posts.

  33. GDContractor says:

    Post#389 is your friend.
    I don’t know what game they are playing Sparks, but this whole comment thread is riddled with bs posts from Popovitch and/or his proxies. One poster named Doc just up and quit. Weird shit…no sammich

  34. Toasty Coastie says:

  35. Green Thumb says:

    I imagine it is only a matter of time before Rent Boy Alex is offering handjobs for your change in a Subway restroom near you….

  36. GDContractor says:

    Hey Salad Shooter (aka Alex). Be on the lookout for this guy. When he says “toasted” he means business.

  37. CBSenior says:

    Holy Crap, this POSer like danny-boi has a Veterans History interview in the Library of Congress. WTF, did they interview any real people that served?

    http://lcweb2.loc.gov/diglib/vhp/bib/89728

  38. CBSenior says:

    In that interview he states that his service was 1993-2002 and he was in the 2nd and 3rd Force Recon Co. Well the 3rd is a Reserve Company that was not called up until 2004 for Iraq. The 3rd also was in Iraq in 07,09. BTW 2004 is 1 yr after he started his security co.
    AS for the 2nd I will let the Marine Corps web site tell you.

    RECONNAISSANCE COMPANY AND FORCE RECONNAISSANCE COMPANY, 2D MARINE DIVISION, COMBINED 1 OCTOBER 1996 TO FORM RECONNAISSANCE BATTALION (PROVISIONAL), 2D MARINE DIVISION

    REDESIGNATED 1 JANUARY 1998 AS 2D RECONNAISSANCE BATTALION

    PARTICIPATED IN OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM, IRAQ, MARCH–MAY 2003, OCTOBER 2004 – APRIL 2005, MARCH – OCTOBER 2006, OCTOBER 2007–MAY 2008

  39. Green Thumb says:

    @544.

    Little things like that do not bother Alex.

    He considers them to be quite trivial in the overall scope of things.

  40. none says:

    Do you have the interview on video?? Would be fascinating to watch…

  41. ChickPea says:

    [Edited by request of the commenter]

    My concern is for the veterans.

    TM “ChickPea”

  42. Green Thumb says:

    I wonder if that real estate office has run off this tool yet?

    They are not particular happy when you call them and let them know that Alex is a con artist.

  43. none says:

    Alex Popovic’s latest…www.SemperFindmyhome.com

    http://semperfindmyhome.com/

  44. fake sniper says:

    looks like Popovic has a new ‘venture’. His “semperfindmyhome” has an address that is listed as the same address as a chiropractor. http://activerain.trulia.com/profile/alexaz8654
    http://infinitehealingarts.com/contact/

    Guess he is no longer working at ‘associated properties’?

    God help the vets who want to buy a house..

  45. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Yeah, he has his bullshit all over the place, claiming this and that regarding service with the USMC. He also seems to have tried to carve himself a niche in the real estate sales business by hawking VA foreclosed homes to all comers. I wonder if the AZ statutory requirement that persons be honest, truthful and of good character will cause him a problem. (Oh, and Alex, throw a few more black olives on mine, will ya?)
