Anthony Marini Anthony Marini is a very deceitful person. He is a professional con man. He is posing as a movie producer with his script, book, and 12 page contract to go with it. This is all fake. There is no movie. No book. He drops very big names which are in no way attached to any projects, and in fact these individuals do not want anything to do with this con man. Anthony Marini uses his ability to lure women into believing they will be in his movie to spend time in their company. He has even gone as far as to convince one woman to accompany him to an S&M club he said to be shooting a scene of his movie in. Stay far far away. Bronxville New York

 Anthony Marini is a professional con man. Stay away!! From him, his delusional movie, and his fake production company AFR Productions. Scam scam scam. 

He starts by contacting unsuspecting young actresses through legitimate casting websites claiming to be working on a movie project, I believe he puts out a role that is less desirable, gets girls to reply, then tells them they're better than that. He tells them he has another project, with a much classier role they would be a perfect fit for. There is this extreme urgency to his tone. He says the cast has fallen through numerous times. He is insistent on girls not having a boyfriend because he says it is a distraction, which is usually a big red flag but he does a great job selling it, saying men get jealous when they see a young starlets become successful. He didn't like that I had a boyfriend and told me that if we continue I should lose him. 

Next come all the supporting facts. In order to spin his story he has actually written a book which he claims is getting published and he is just waiting on some legal approvals for the release. (This is total BS, there is no book deal, the book is just an easy way to give his "background" and keep his story straight) the book sets the backdrop. Marini is a former king pin in the S&M world. In order to make women more comfortable with this he spins that as a business venture and touts his catholic background. He name drops like no other. Claims the book to be the inspiration behind his screenplay "The Curtain" he has an actual screen play, and once he has a girl on the hook, he has an actual 12 page legal contract. This contract is full of loopholes and was put together by an attorney several years ago, is sloppy, and is not for a live project. DO NOT SIGN anything! This is a contract full of loopholes, there is no movie but Marini will try and use the contract against you.  In the midst of this Marini will drop big names he claims to be attached to the project. Don't buy it. This is all a lie. He will claim actors are backing out. He will claim investors are falling through. And then he will move on to selling dreams to someone else. Who knows how many women he has scammed. 

I can can only speculate what the motive here is. Marini is a lonely overweight middle aged man and had to create a fantasy world to get women to talk to him. Regardless, this is a SCAM. Stay away from this man. His production company also does not exist, sans a crappy HTML website.

Anthony Marini: Great Boss and Friend

AUTHOR: Ricky Grey aka Lucifer - ()

I was one of Anthony Marini's bouncers back when he ran The Vault and we have been friends for roughly twenty years. He was a great employer and friend, and he's a loving father who always brags about his son. He is an honest, thoughtful, and generous man, and I'm proud to say that we've remained friends after all these years. It's a shame that he is being trashed on this Web site by people who would rather remain anonymous. If your complaint is real, sign your name to it. Don't just lie about him while using a phoney name.

Reports about Marini are NOT TRUE

AUTHOR: Phil - ()

Anthony Marini is a wonderful friend and colleague, a warm, loving, generous man with a sharp wit and a great sense of humor. He is a talented writer with amazing stories to tell, and I doubt that the people irresponsibly criticizing him on this Web site have ever even met him. I've always found him to be honest and I've researched his stories. They are credible. I've read both his book and his screenplay--both are awesome and very real. It is hard to believe that he is a con artist since none of these alleged victims have described how they were conned, proven that they were conned, or even bothered to sign their names to their reports. If you're going to slander somebody and try to tarnish his or her reputation, at least have the decency to sign your name to your complaint. It woul be foolish to believe these half-baked allegations and very sad that people are spreading lies about him.

Where is the "Ripoff?"

AUTHOR: John - ()

I'm sorry, I read through your missive, but maybe I missed it- is money changing hands here?  If not, how does lying about being a movie producer or anything else fit the definition of a "scam?"  Lots of people lie about their backgrounds and make themselves more exciting than they actually are.  Does this guy con people into giving Power of Attorney?  Does he get them to turn over credit cards or cash?  Because if he's just getting women to date him by posing as a director, I just don't get how that's a "Ripoff."  

Again, maybe I missed the part where he was cheating people out of their money- I'll read it again.  If he's just a liar, that's not being a ripoff artist, just a guy with a good angle going.
