Tony Gil AKA Antony Francis Gil or Anthony GilCon Man/Scam Artist

Tony Gil AKA Antony Francis Gil or Anthony Gil is a con man from Leesburg, Virginia who has been scamming his neighbors, relatives, and even immediate family out of HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of dollars. This man will befriend you and then try to work on you for a deal, the only catch is that the money never goes where he says it is (usually real estate related), but the money goes towards his living expenses. His wife is MUCH younger than him and looked the other way, even when he took her sister for $500K! She stayed with him of course. He has since taken MANY people as that is how he makes a living, through stealing money from people. Please check both the Civil and District Court websites of the counties of Loudoun, Fairfax, and Arlington for the public records of him

    I think the bigger question is whether their child is safe in the environment that they have provided her. Should Social Services be involved to put her in an environment where they are not living within a few steps of most of the people that they have taken for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Lori is nothing but a gold digging hoe bag. She thought she was marrying an old prune with millions but instead she married a low life con. Now she is living with him at Meadowood Ct., so obviously the divorce was a scam, she knew that her sister got taken for over $500K and everyone else, so she is still with him? F ing Mother of the year award for this POS! Her child should be taken care of by someone who has the child's best interest at heart! Law Enforcement... Please take her as well!

    Looks like Antony Francis Gil is going through the process of declaring bankruptcy for the THIRD time. Whoever lets this happen is criminal in their own right. That is right. Think you will be paid by this thieving maggot? He is about to wipe clean all of your civil cases against him and our judicial system is letting him do it. Here is his fake divorce with his wife who just filed bankruptcy back in June 2010 herself. See where he says suggestion of bankruptcy-11/29/2010. They are meeting 12/3. Let your law enforcement know how you feel.

  • Are you sure he is living in that part of Potomac Station? I am a neighbor and see him at the bus stop by his foreclosed property at Meadowood Ct. He is in a gold van so he stays safe and I believe their whole thieving family is squatting in his old house until the Sheriffs coming knocking. So much for a real divorce from his thieving wife Lori Ann Deskins who filed for bankruptcy. It seems it was all an act; part of the con man ploy.

    Lori Ann Deskins has filed for Bankruptcy Chapter 7. Her husband Antony F. Gil or Tony Gil did twice between [protected] and now she has filed. I guess there is no way to live an extravagant lifestyle for them when there is no illegal stolen fraudulent cash coming in. I still hope the feds get both of them. They both should rot in jail for all of the money they took from others.

They will take the money and the robbed individuals would have to sue them in civil court; BEWARE!

    Seems like they've been getting away with this kind of stuff for 10+ years. I guess they are smarter than they seem if they can get away with it for that long, which is very sad. I
    can't believe that a State represenative or a big shot attorney can't pin them down. Looks like a small scale Bernie Madoff case to me. Good luck to all of you and I hope you can get
    to him before he files for another bankruptcy. He knows how to do it so he can start a whole new life with a clean slate. And the divorce...whatever! It's just another scam to protect assets.
    I see alot more smaller cases get exploited on TV by small town Newstation troubleshooters. Maybe someone needs to contact 20/20, Dateline or something similiar to get it in the public eye.

    So, I guess Antony francis Gil AKA Tony Gil and Lori Ann Deskins moved their sale of their Mercedes from a Leesburg listing to Sterling on Craigslist so that they could scam more people. The whole listing is the same otherwise and the phone number is still there. Beware of these people. Once a scam artist, always a scam artist.

    I am not sure if the account was his wifes, I am pretty sure it said TONY GIL on account. I bought a camera from him years ago on ebay and all went fine. I then asked him privately if he could get another one a year or so later, he said yes, I paid him with a money order, but the camera never came, after a few months he paid me back. Then months later I was looking for a deal on another camera, he said he could get it super cheap (well below dealer invoice) so I sent money again, nothing came, but he sent my money back (took forever). But in july I sent him money for a video camera, same song and dance, and now he has vanished for good, wont reply to emails, phone, txt.

    I spoke with him on the phone back when he was telling me "the camera you bought is out of stock...but I am flying to so cal with my daughter, if you send me $5000 I can bring you a few of these cameras and you just sell them on your own" the stories got more and more weird and I finally woke up and realized he is a ### thief.

    Like others, I sent this man money for a camera. I wasn't worried because I had purchased a camera from him 5 years ago. However that was 4 months ago and I have yet to receive the camera or the refund promised over a month ago. This man has so many reasons and excuses it is almost entertaining to hear what he comes up with next and then I think about what it cost me. I finally investigated him on-line and came to this site. After reading above, I have little hope of getting my money back but will press criminal fraud charges and try to see him put in jail.

    Hey camera man, was it his Wachovia account or his wife's? It seems he has in the past had all of his scam money run through his wife's account and he has for YEARS. She is completely aware of it. As long as the money keeps coming. That makes her an accessory (and many other derogatory things) even though they are getting a divorce. That is just their way of hiding assets. I am really sorry for your loss. All of us (his many victims over the past few decades) have tried to warn people via the internet, but how would you know just trying to buy camera equipment?

    Craigg,

    Through what organization did you purchase the camera through Tony Gil? (Ebay, Craigslist, etc.) Did you contact them? (You probably did, but I am just checking). Did you contact your local authorities? I cannot believe he said not to believe these websites. What a complete liar. There are public records out there describing all of the civil cases against him. These are just the circuit ones, but you can see in various counties, but most importantly Loudoun County where he lives. He has been stealing from people for decades and for millions of dollars total. What he did to you is against the law. The cases are listed above, but here are the actual records. http://wasdmz2.courts.state.va.us/CJISWeb/circuit.html

    PUT HIM AWAY FOR EVER! Oct 16, 2009

    This conman is a pathological liar and will say and do anything to get your money and rip you off. You need to contact the Loudoun County sheriff's office in Tony Gil's jurisdiction and speak to detective TJ Sheffer and explain to him how you have been ripped off by this criminal. TJ Sheffer can be contacted at [protected], he is a criminal detective that is investigating Tony Gil for numerous cases of fraud. Anymore cases of fraud and information that you or others can provide will help put this piece of garbage ### behind bars where he belonged long ago. It would not hurt to contact your own local authority either to file a complaint against Tony Gil and maybe they will contact TJ Sheffer on your behalf. It takes people to come forward to get this maggot off the streets!!

    Tony Gil owes me $2560
    He told me he had a HD video camera for sale (it retails for $3500) and I am stupid to have sent him the cash (sent to his wachovia bank account, because he would not do any sort of other payment-had to be cash). I paid him 3 months ago. I have heard every excuse in the book as to why my camera has never shipped, it is always "my supplier says your check is in the mail" (because apparently the camera I bought, was the last one, they did not have it when he arrived to pay...so he is getting me a refund).

    He now will not reply to emails, phone calls, text messages.

    I live in california...sounds like he has scammed coast to coast.

    I told him about this site and I guess I am screwed, via email, he wrote me back (finally) but all he said was 'dont believe what you read, your money is safe'.

    Looks like these two cons/scam artists Tony Gil( Antony Francis Gil) and his wife, Lori Ann Deskins are selling their house and fleeing the area! Probably to start fresh and con others in other counties where they are unknown and can possibly continue their ponzi scheme, predatorial scamming elsewhere. Please spread the word to help protect other innocent people from becoming victims in the future. Here is the link to their house being listed for sale:

    PS. Will update with new address for these scammers when it becomes available.
    Also, beware that they are scamming on Craigslist as well; IE fake Legg Mason tennis tickets and camera equipment.

    I agree. All people who file cases against him should include his wife, Lori Ann Deskins as he also money laundered many of his funds through his wife's accounts (Which she completely knew about) and all of the assets such as the house, etc... are in her name. That is why she never changed her name when they got married. This is a life of stealing through a guilded version of a ponzi scheme; taking from Peter to pay Paul a little; meanwhile living in luxury at the expense of others who are scrambling to understand how somebody could get away with doing this for so very long...

    While living in a nice community in Leesburg VA, maintaining a membership at River Creek Country Club, driving two Mercedes, traveling extensively (Key Biscayne, Disney), buying tickets to expensive events (Legg Mason, local concerts), and buying lots of high end electronics, Gil claims to have only $24, 000 in assets in his Bankruptcy filing of July '03. He stiffs his unsecured creditors and one year later in July '04 has a nice party at home. Five years later in '09, no job, still in the house, still in the Mercedes.

    The "Promissory Note" or "Investment Agreement" issued by Mr. Gil have no collateral. It appears that the pattern is:
    - Keep no assets in your own name
    - Issue "Promissory Notes" to investors
    - Spend the money
    - Wait for investors to litigate
    - Lose or settle the litigation
    - File for bankruptcy (identifying only nominal assets, not those in your spouses name)
    - Start over looking for new "investors"

Also, I wonder if he could file bankruptcy a 3rd time?? What judge would grant that in this economy? And his record of bad behavior and civil suits speak volumes. By no means is Lori Deskins an angel.
