This character has swindled a total of $90,000 from 2 of my clients.

He expects you to wire him 1 year of interest reserve upfront but never funds the loan.

Both of my clients have reported him to the FBI.

If you have been victimized by this sleezy character, please reply to this post with your contact info and I will be in touch with you.

FilFilippo Cardone STRIKES AGAIN In LAS VEGAS FILIPPO CARDONE - DOLCE FUNDING CORP. THIS p***k WROTE ME 3 COUNERFEIT CHECKS TOTALING MORE THEN 10K

AUTHOR: Allmenow - (U.S.A.)

9175481010 - this is the number he is using now, as i type this report he is staying at the m hotel in las vegas, he has been moving from hotel to hotel on the strip I'm sure ripping them off one way or the other.. this guy is a real piece of work, much like ashley from AZ, i met him and he wined me and dined me and then we went to the club where he got plastered and before you know it he is screaming about he is missing his money out of his pants and his credit cards are all gone. this is part of the scam to get me to give him cash.. in return he would write me the checks also he had agreed to pay for my boob job... which he tried to do with a chase bank check, from a company called Dolce Funding Corp. which has no credentials anywhere... so I go to the bank on monday and deposit the checks like he said and come Thursday i have no access to my bank account and come to find out that he had reported the checks stolen... my whole bank account got closed thanks to him, the bank foreclosed in my account. I have to now wait 24- 48 hours to find out what the next step is with the bank, I have since reported him to the police station here and let them copy all of the text messages from him saying his accountant cleared the checks and that he would never report them stolen... he then tried to text me saying I stole his checks but when i notified him of the fact that i Knew who he was and had already printed out my text message log as well as ordered a certified copy from my phone company! this guy was claiming he owns 17% of the Hard Rock Hotel,(SINCE THIS POSTED HE SAID THAT PEOPLE @ HR HOTEL WOULD BE PIS*ED ABOUT THAT BEING THERE, HE SAID HE OWNS 51% OF SWISS BANK WHO OWNS HR HOTEL HE SAYS - THEN SAYS WHEN THE HOTEL IS COMPLETE HE WILL THEN OWN 17% OF THE HARD ROCK) the only reason I wasted my time on him was because on of the best hosts I know at the hard rock was drinking with him one night and introduced us... this guy has to be amost the sleeziest scumbags o the earth! routing # 071000013 acct# 772762803 account number to his chase bank account .... Allmenow las vegas, Nevada
U.S.A.

MY ACCOUNT WAS CLOSED, TAKEN OVER BY THE RISK MANAGEMENT FORECLOSURE DEPT! THE REPS AT BANK OF AMERICA COULDN'T EVEN ACCESS THE ACCOUNTS. WHEN I FINALLY GOT THE REASON THE GUY NAMED NICK FROM FRAUD CLAIMS DEPT NOTIFIED ME OF THE REASON BEING THE CHECKS WERE COUNTERFEIT!!!

He has been trying to get me to go to Wachovia and open an account there so he could just wired me money into that account, he says that he comes to Vegas alot because this is the safest place to come because of all of the cameras. He said when he lands in NY that his two body guards are there in their bullet proof cars and one rides in front of him and another rides behind him... he said he as a house in the Hampton's with a 4 story garage and another place @ trump towers in NY, which is a bullet proof building! LOL

This guy is a bag of tricks all together... I swear if anyone is writing a book and need some things about a con artist i have some for you..
Since the report went up & he found out via the email that was sent to the host that was mentioned... Man was he pis*ed, I guess he hadnt ever seen those previous reports... if he had he hid it well... I have received so many phone calls and texts from this guy telling me he will take care of anything for me if I take the report down.. he went as far as to text me saying to fix all of the reports on the site and then bill him so he can give me a sh*t load of money and no one would be able to say anything about it... I have not believed one thing this guy said to me! He lies so much... O yeah he texts so much info knowing that I am going to give them all to the attorney I have since hired... this idiot still claims he wipes his arse with money and he is on FORBES TOP 30 under 30... & he claims to be turning 31 on the 28t of this month... On Friday I flew home_ Family time, Wednesday before he was texting me saying he is coming in town and will give me a couple g's to fix what he had done... coming Thursday night @ 11:30ish but then later that night he text me saying his flight got canceled because of the weather, he would be landing 10am on Friday...said he was on the next flight & was actually boarding. My flight left Friday morning @8am... He then called me Saturday while I was out shopping with my mother and my two daughters ... he asked me to KIT & call him when I got back he felt bad for what happened with my account and he wanted to try and fix it...LIES LIES.... My mom thought I was insane for even taking his call after I told her what he had done... i want to just post a few of the text messages ... Today I text him & he said he is already back in NY he couldn't win any money so he left and he will just go to ATL on Thursday. Says his office is in NY but his checks say chicago.. his id says IL

This man is bad news...and very good at what he does!! beware!!

AUTHOR: Ashley - (U.S.A.)

I met filippo cardone and found him to be very charming...wow was i wrong. He wined me, dined me, bragged about his financial status, his betting on games and his trading company which he now claims is called Mantra Trading. We became involved and went out to bars frequently and one night $300 turned up missing from my purse. I called him, crying and upset and of course he had a solution for me.

I had come upon a hard time and needed some money. He told me he would write me a check for $2000 on the terms that I would cash it using my bank account. He would take $1500 cash and let me keep $500 to help me out. He claims and brags about his mafia ties and has "cosa nostra" tattooed on his back. I thought that I better comply and so I did. The day the check cleared I pulled the $1500 from my account and waited to meet him after work. My gut told me to check my account and sure enough my account was overdrawn the amount of $2000 dollars. His "check" from Harris bank was bad and when I called him to let him know, he got violent threatened my life and yelled at me calling me stupid and blaming it on me.

I stopped answering his phone calls and reported my incident to the local authorities. This man is well known and a very bad person. I am lucky that i caught him before i lost any more than $300, however I feel for his other victims. I hope he gets what he deserves.

Filippo Cardone Strikes Again!!!! Another Victim.....

AUTHOR: Integrity08 - (Canada)

I just spoke with another victim from Las Vegas who lost $45,000 to Filippo Cardone. She had wired $45K to his Harris Bank Account and that was the last she had any contact with him. He blocks all his calls from victims and doesn't respond to email.

I had another potential victim tell me that Filippo is now referring to the upfront money as an "Insurance Policy" for the loan. Filippo Cardone is advertising his Guaranteed Loans on Craigslist.com.

It appears the FBI have had at least 11 Bank Security Alerts in the last 2 months related to Filippo Cardone.

Filippo Cardone also boasts that he is a very successful Futures Broker/Trader on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and that he has 12-40 plus traders working for him. He will also say he owns Spiketrading.com which in reality he doesn't. All just smoke & mirrors.

Stay tuned for more updates.........

Beware of Crooked Lender Filippo, Frank, or Michael Cardone from Chicago

AUTHOR: Integrity08 - (Canada)

A potential victim contacted me as of Feb 4, 2008. So I am adding more info on this scammer's latest tactics.

He is based out of Chicago and is now using other names to cover his tracks.
When I came into contact with him, he was using Filippo Cardone, now it appears he is Michael Cardone or Frank Cardone.
His latest tactic is to have you send him money via Western Union.
He expects you to wire him 1 year of interest reserve upfront but never funds the loan.
Filippo Cardone has stolen a total of $90,000 from 2 of my clients.
Both of my clients have reported Filippo Cardone to the FBI for interstate wire fraud.
