Alberto Vilar Still a Wanted Man

A New Jersey woman is singing a tale of woe about being scammed by opera-loving fraudster Alberto Vilar. Robin Sayko, who is Vilar's cousin by marriage, filed court papers yesterday seeking to recoup more than $274,000 the feds seized from the crooked money manager. Sayko claims the smooth-talking con man tricked her into letting him handle an inheritance from her late stepmother, Cele Kohl, who was Vilar's aunt. Vilar is currently serving nine years in prison for defrauding investors out of more than $20 million. [Source]
