Lee used to play in home games in Los Angeles. He was widely know as a con artist long before his arrest. He scammed a few players out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in stock sale scams.

Interesting and Sad. Hope he does major time. i happen to communicate with authorities. Hopefully since he committed additional crimes related to fraud while out on bail, he will see time at a real prison.

i found some great info related to his plea

Re: Lee Vaccaro (LA / NV Poker Player - Con Man)

The fool Actually Took Me for some $$$ several weeks ago, when i found out about the fraud criminal activity. Spoke with the FBI / SEC, they are calling a new hearing regarding his actions. Set for Sept. 22 11:00am (im able find out about the particulars as im part of his "victim pool" )

(Original Sentencing Hearing Moved I assume, due to new evidence etc.)

Pretrial officer will present a report on his conduct to the judge who allowed him bail etc. (250,000.00) under pretrial release supervision. Translation Bye Bye MFer (Big Man's Jail, i hope)

Google his name Lee Vaccarro, and His Judge (Cathy L. Waldor) United States Court for the District of New Jersey.

https://www.justice.gov/usao-nj/pr/n...t-fraud-scheme

If you believe you are a victim of or otherwise have information concerning this alleged scheme, you are encouraged to contact the FBI at 973-792-3000.

Well add more to it. My husband became re acquainted with Lee in early 2015. He had worked for him more than 20 years ago at a computer store. He took-us, my elderly mother, my Uncle on my fathers side, one of our business clients and our attorney for total of 750,000. What a scum bag. His wife Bonnie Vaccarro who was nothing more than a "hostess" when they met probably has money hidden to support the lifestyle she had become accustomed too.

Lee shows up at our Casino occasionally, orders drinks continuously and overplays hands like going 10x pot all in with AK. Seems fairly unfazed by his legal troubles, hope to see him again soon.

Re: Lee Vaccaro (LA / NV Poker Player - Con Man)

He won't feel the reality of it all until that cell door slams shut. I sincerely hope his game improves while playing with the brothers in maximum security in upstate New York or Jersey. I plan to send him some $$$ for ramen noodles. (Not really) p.s to my "friend" Lee. when they yell "I'm all in" up there, they might be talking about something other than poker.

Your statement about the brothers seems pretty racist and your entire post is filled with ignorance. While I'm not condoning what he did, you seem quite misinformed on how prisons, more specifically federal prisons work.

I'm sorry to disappoint you but if he does time it will be in a minimum security prison with other white collar / low threat inmates aka club fed.

PS...just because you see something on TV or the movies doesn't mean it's real.

Re: Lee Vaccaro (LA / NV Poker Player - Con Man)

Interesting that you seek to clarify comments regarding Lee. Wondering if the judge will see it your way. Maybe the judge realizes that this psycho has broken his plea agreement, lied about all the $$$ he stole from real people. And that its time to pay. Is madoff in a real jail ? (Yes).

LOL.....WTF are you talking about?

All I said was that your comment above was racist and ignorant, neither which you denied.

I hate to break it to you but.......good chance he gets less than 5 years and will spend all his time in a low risk, minimum security prison with other white collar criminals.

If people weren't so greedy or ignorant a lot of these white collar crimes wouldn't happen.

Re: Lee Vaccaro (LA / NV Poker Player - Con Man)

Let''s See you generate outrage for perceived racism when i joked about the prison population of Upstate New York and New Jersey. Yet you give no deference to victims of a Criminal Conspiracy that stole Millions of Dollars. In Fact, you blame the victim's of L. Vaccaro's Crimes. (Business Associates and Friends who Trusted Him, Not to Mention Fellow Poker Players in Home Games He Hosted and Others who loaned to Him Based on His Word etc) Ridiculous Take on your part in my humble opinion.

You spend huge amounts of vision to outline how little prison time he will receive etc.... Maybe so, but eventually L. Vaccaro wil "fully" answer for his crimes..... Meanwhile, keep holding his ....

Serious question, did you create the new account, Bellaigo Lee, because Bellagio Lee was already taken?
