His real name is JOSEPH CARECCIA. He has taken the name of his wife/mistress of Colombo. He must realize if you knew his real name you would google it and find all you need to know about this thief.
I trace his life of crime back to Long Island, NY. When he was barely in his teens he stole his grandmother's check books and forged her name.
He once owned a tanning salon in Rockville Centre, NY. When he learned there was going to be a newer and more upscale salon around the corner from his store he conned his cousin to buy the store from him. He didn't tell her of his debt and she trusted him because they were family. She had to assume the debt. Joe wiped her and her father out.
He quickly went full bore into a life of crime. committed scores of burglaries, home invasions, sold drugs, burned out a store in Yonkers, NY. Although he pled guilty for those crimes he never did a day in jail.
He then relocated to Florida where he operated several mortgage business with other related businesses, including a real estate company and a Title company. He did all this while he was on probation in Florida for crimes he committed on Long Island.
I believe I drove him out of the mortgage/bank fraud business and he opened up Uncle Joe's Auto Sales, Big Apple Towing, and a couple of other related companies all with the intention of defrauding people. He outright stole 15 cars from someone doing business with him and stole two very expensive towing trucks from that individual. Again, nothing happened to him.
I believe he is an informant for the FBI because there is no other way he could avoid arrest for the crimes he has committed and continues to commit.
I would suggest to his latest victims that they band together and go to you local FBI office and demand they stop this cretin from stealing money from honest people. IMO, it is the FBI or some other federal law enforcement agency that enables him to steal and know he will not have to account for his crimes.
Reason of review: outright theft..
Monetary Loss: $30000.
