Hi All,

I want to warn you about a new appearance by an old scammer. He appeared as Michael De Santis on Facebook. He is from Italy. He is selling a number of illusions. I negotiated to purchase a Flying Box and a Scimitar Suspension. He wanted me to pay by bank draft but I would only pay by PayPal. He insisted I use Friend and Family so he wouldn't have to pay a fee. I sent payment. I should have been very suspicious when the name on the PayPal account was different. HE then said he miscalculated the postage and I needed to send more money. It wans't much, so I did. Now suddenly, he needs a lot more money for additional postage and customs fees. HE had sent me pictures of the package and video of him at the Post OFfice. This seemed really fishy so I looked him up right here on The Café. Yes, it is none other than Gaetano Di Stefano. He's pulled this crap beofre and took others for even more. I knew it had to be him when he tried to sell me the Spontus 360 levitation that he ripped Michael Bairefoot off for. This scumbag changes his name and tries the same scams. Beware of anyone selling illusions online at bargain prices, especially if they are from Italy

BTW, he had to change his Facebook identity to DeSantis Michaal. I guess they found out about his scams too.
