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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
