Scottsdale apparently had its very own version of Steve Martin's Ruprecht in the 1988 film "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels."

That's right; this Don Juan of deception coaxed at least six women into "investing" in his "company."

This wasn't Leombroni's first brush with barratry. The man already has spent two years in prison after a different fraud conviction, and told police he thinks he may have a gambling problem.

Messing around big-time with the checkbook, and possibly the heart, of a Scottsdale woman? Sure sounds like a risky wager to us.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
