Jenifer Lewis Conman Convicted


Three years ago actress Jenifer Lewis went public after being conned out of $500,000 by her former fiancé, Tony Wilson, in an elaborate scheme involving the LA Fitness gym franchise [click here if you missed that].

Wilson just pleaded guilty to conning Ms. Lewis and four other women...

From Variety
Antonio Mariot Wilson, aka “Dr. Tony Mariot” and “Brice Carrington,” 57, agreed to plead guilty to one count of wire fraud, according to a plea agreement filed in United States District Court.
According to an FBI investigation, between May 2015 and October 2018, Wilson met four women, including Black-ish actress Jenifer Lewis, with whom he started romantic relationships before allegedly conning them out of hundreds of thousands of dollars for purported businesses.
Wilson — who falsely claimed to be a Navy SEAL, an Oxford University graduate and a professor teaching biblical antiquities at UCLA — encouraged his victims to invest in two businesses (one for sound design and the other software), which he said has relationships with ABC and EA Sports, according to authorities.
Wilson admitted he sold unregistered securities to one of the companies by distributing “shareholder agreements” and “stock purchase agreements” to the victims, receiving a total of $387,000. Authorities said he spent that money on personal items for himself.
He is facing up to 20 years in prison at sentencing.

Some women are gold diggers; but some of these men got women beat. Some of these men out here being charlatans, shysters and trying to finesse women and looking for major sponsors. It's a cold, cruel and dangerous world out here. Predators are out looking for suckas and prey. So glad these ladies will see a light at the end of the tunnel. They were the lucky ones. Good for them!

Book 'em Danno! Any man who has to steal from women in order to fund his lifestyle is no man at all. I bet he's a pretty Ricky beta looking sucker too.

Unfortunately, L.A. is just that place where if a person has something going for themselves, the wolves will definitely come out. Even if all a woman has is a used car with zero damage, basic cable, and a decent studio apartment, some dude will be looking to move in. Some people say L.A. is cliquish but sometimes it's a way to vet people out before getting acquainted.
