Swindler bilks thousands of dollars out of tourists


Robert Giuliano

A SWINDLER put the “con” into concierge – tricking tourists out of thousands of dollars.

Fraudster Robert Giuliano pretended to book travellers into luxury hotels – and then used the accommodation himself.

Posing as the chairman of phony “Giuliano Group Concierge,” Giuliano promised to set victims up at ritzy hotels in Manhattan.

The Brooklyn native was a regular guest at the W Hotel, Westin, Mercer Hotel, Four Points and St. Regis, among others, before his scheme unraveled in 2012.

In one incident, he used two victims’ credit cards to ring up $11,000 worth of room costs, food and drinks for himself.

When questioned about the charges, Giuliano told his victims that he had suffers major calamities – from getting kidnapped to learning that his wife had cancer.

He paid off old victims with funds from new suckers to keep his lavish lifestyle afloat.

As part of the plea deal, Giuliano faces four to eight years in prison for 10 counts of identity theft, scheme to defraud, falsifying business records and grand larceny. He also must pay back his victims.
