Whitestone con man canned

From the NY Post:

An alleged grifter from Queens with fake identities ranging from motocross champ to war vet to record producer was arrested in Southampton, LI, this week on a Florida warrant.

Robert Schnepf, 35, is also under investigation by the NYPD for attracting women by fabricating accomplishments and for bilking them out of money before vanishing.

His alleged victims have even coined a phrase to describe their experience with the Whitestone man -- "getting Schnepfed."

Southampton cops targeted the 6-foot-6 scam suspect this week after getting reports that he was passing himself off as a struggling veteran and milking sympathetic marks for free food and lodging in the area.

Schnepf was arrested on Monday after a computer check revealed a Florida warrant on a burglary rap from April 2008. He is awaiting extradition.

Several of the women told The Post that Schnepf, a native of Forest Hills, would present himself as a fat cat in need of administrative assistance. He claimed business partnerships with everyone from R&B star Rihanna to Heineken and even gave an October speech at a Staten Island domestic-violence shelter after promising to build it a $3.5 million facility.

I can't help but notice that this being an English speaking white man, and possibly a queens native, that there are no comments yet for this item!! HAH!! Can't help but wonder how many dozen comments there would be if the dude were black, hispanic, or god forbid Asian!!
