You sure got "tampababy" pegged right. All they'd have to do is say BOO and he'd drowned in his own urine. He's a lot of big talk, but not much else. He's mouthy and then cries bullies/racist when someone reacts to his taunts. He's carrying generations of pity baggage and has a HUGE sense of entitlement for such a small minded man.

But I worked for these Romano guys back in the early 90's when it was "wall street rare coins" in Massapequa
Mike was the business behind the door and Joe and sal were the muscle who kept the telemarketers in their place on the floor. They were all crooks and knew damm well what they were doing to the elderly.
I was young when I started there and just simply told what to do and how to sell. I didn't realize it right away of what we were all doing because I was so green at the time, but when I did, I walked out the door for good.
Hell, like one of the other posters said, we never ever seen the coins we were told to sell. They even had long drapes over the windows so we couldn't see the outside world. They wanted no one from the outside world to know what were doing inside. They even had a jewelry store front and would not allow walk in customers.
Peter, Marc, Tom, norm, need I say more???? They all worked there
In fact, there are more of these operations all over long island. There about 20 other rare coin companies who scam all over LI
Sorry if you grew up with these guys, but they marked these coins up over 500% and over graded these raw coins, they robbed people, it's that simple
I even read that Joe Romano just got arrested again for doing the same thing Florida this past March, they just never learn

You pretty up on current events for someone who worked for them in the 90's. from what Ive read the reason he went back in to what ever he was doing down in FLA, was to pay legal fees, as the FEDS seized all their bank accounts and assets, even if they were to sell something the money would have been seized, so Im not saying what he did was right, but how is a guy supposed to defend himself if he cant even pay for a lawyer, Im sure they were just waiting for him to do something stupid and desperate like that, they had him by the balls. Im not sticking up for him and Im sure he is paying a hefty price for what he did, but dont forget he has a wive and children, so what ever the reason was for him to do something so stupid, I dont feel it was out of pure greed, I think he was trying to make money to pay for a lawyer and putting money together for his wife and kids to live on for when he went to prison, as he knew he is going to be locked up for a very long time. I think he was acting out of panic and desperation, honestly I really dont think he would have taken such a high risk chance he wasnt desperate.
My answer to that

would be, and I'm not trying to be a wise ass here, but with all the money they made(millions) by robbing the elderly, they should already had the money for high profile and high priced attorneys

The typical putdown artist is miserable about his/her own life. They put others down to feel better about themselves. Personally, I am very ok with myself and I like when people verbally attack me. It shows I am important enough that I get their ire lol. I give opinions and I do so without verbally attacking others. Nothing pisses off a putdown artist more , than the fact that a confident person like myself , not only is NOT bothered by their juvenile antics but relishes them. I have nothing against gay folks. In fact there are many fine homosexual people. If someone really feels better about themselves calling me gay, which is the oldest, unoriginal insult in the book lmao- Than so be it. I truly do hope we are all having a great evening.

It's AMAZING to me. The gay jew boy has decided, this topic isn't as important as pontificating, on HIS important life and beliefs ! He write like a drama queen who MUST be considered "special", while everyone else should be taking notes. Such a sucksessful boy ! A postal worker who doesn't attend union meetings, single with no children, and can't find a girl friend, who will tolerate him ! Needs to tell EVERYONE what to do and how to do it, then when they're offended. He says the usual, " have a nice day ", "don't be offended", or " Debates are won on logic..". Opinions aren't logic based, UNLESS we all can experience the same things, the same way. Don't give us your valuable opinions, boy ! We don't deserve them ! LMAOROTF !
