Please be on the lookout for scams such as this one, which Phil Capolongo has been doing for years.  I have known Phil for a few years when he sprung this offer on me.  I didn't give him the full amount he asked for, instead I gave him half that amount figuring Phil was a friend and he never paid me back.  This email was sent to me on April 3rd, 2008 and I was supposed to be paid back April 13th, 2008.  It is now 2010 and nothing.  This man has been convicted of Larceny 1 in the state of CT back in 1998.  He has 7 judgments against him in NY Supreme Court for a collective amount of over $22 million.  Stay away from any dealing with this man.  He has been ripping people off since the late 90s.  The NY DA's office has a file on him.  If you have any questions or have been scammed, please email Om Gillett at gilletto@dany.nyc.gov..

"Dear Jon;
I sent you this anyway.  I put a small group together along with myself to do this, it is quick in and quick out.
Diversified Capital Group is a short termed special purpose LP that we set up to do an acquisition and then flip the acquisition.
We needed to bring in some short termed money for soft costs that we cannot grab out of fund money for obvious reasons.
I will guarantee the investment with my equity fund money, (See attached Statement), and personally.
The funds will be paid back to you on Monday April 13, 2008 and can be paid back in ANY manner you wish.
Because of the guarantee, and the fact that I NEVER risk fund money for anyone, it is safe.
It is $10,000 for $12,500 returned six business days hence.
Totally backed by our equity funds.
We just need to move quickly,  I do these things only with the guys close to me, just some quick return to pay the bills if you know what I mean.
Let me know today so we can get you in right away.  I sent you wiring as well if you want in.
Look forward to seeing you and working with you in the future.
