INTRODUCTION

Harold Adamo gained the trust of his close friend Rocco Marini, and then used that trust to bilk Marini. . . . Adamo, representing himself as a knowledgeable and sophisticated coin dealer with over 20 years of experience, promised Marini stable and healthy profits from coin investments unmatched by any other investment opportunity. . . . Regrettably, Marini lost most of the millions he invested due to Adamo’s fraudulent misrepresentations of the value of the coins he sold Marini and the propriety of coin investments. Adamo continues to refuse to honor commitments to buy back Marini’s coin purchases and continues to misrepresent the value of Marini’s coins. . . .
