Original Complaint against Anthony Marini published at Scamity.com on 09-May-14 says, verbatim –
Anthony Marini is a professional con man. Stay away!! From him, his delusional movie, and his fake production company AFR Productions. Scam scam scam. | He starts by contacting unsuspecting young actresses through legitimate casting websites claiming to be working on a movie project, I believe he puts out a role that is less desirable, gets girls to reply, then tells them they’re better than that. He tells them he has another project, with a much classier role they would be a perfect fit for. There is this extreme urgency to his tone. He says the cast has fallen through numerous times. He is insistent on girls not having a boyfriend because he says it is a distraction, which is usually a big red flag but he does a great job selling it, saying men get jealous when they see a young starlets become successful. He didn’t like that I had a boyfriend and told me that if we continue I should lose him. | Next come all the supporting facts. In order to spin his story he has actually written a book which he claims is getting published and he is just waiting on some legal approvals for the release. (This is total BS, there is no book deal, the book is just an easy way to give his “”background”” and keep his story straight) the book sets the backdrop. Marini is a former king pin in the S&M world. In order to make women more comfortable with this he spins that as a business venture and touts his catholic background. He name drops like no other. Claims the book to be the inspiration behind his screenplay “”The Curtain”” he has an actual screen play, and once he has a girl on the hook, he has an actual 12 page legal contract. This contract is full of loopholes and was put together by an attorney several years ago, is sloppy, and is not for a live project. DO NOT SIGN anything! This is a contract full of loopholes, there is no movie but Marini will try and use the contract against you. In the midst of this Marini will drop big names he claims to be attached to the project. Don’t buy it. This is all a lie. He will claim actors are backing out. He will claim investors are falling through. And then he will move on to selling dreams to someone else. Who knows how many women he has scammed. | I can can only speculate what the motive here is. Marini is a lonely overweight middle aged man and had to create a fantasy world to get women to talk to him. Regardless, this is a SCAM. Stay away from this man. His production company also does not exist, sans a crappy HTML website.
