He allegedly fooled luxury brands into sending jewelry to his co-conspirators.

Being stuck behind bars couldn’t stop Jimmy Sabatino from running a scam through which he duped luxury jewelry brand representatives into sending his co-conspirators their high-end goods, SILive.com reports.

The news outlet explains how the 39-year-old Sabatino – who was serving time for another scheme he ran involving luxury hotels – allegedly posed as a music business executive and asked high-end brand reps to ship expensive watches, jewelry, clothing and handbags to two co-conspirators, promising to feature the products in upcoming music videos and other promotional materials. Sabatino was said to have contacted the brands via several email addresses he created, with his emails displaying the logos of the Sony Music Entertainment and Roc Nation labels.

The article claims that Sabatini promised to return the goods and signed letters of responsibility for them.

Sabatino and his partners have been slapped with three fraud charges and could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted, the article adds.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
