Simon Gann, a true master of the con has just been arrested in Phoenix after conning a couple out of $1,000 just days ago.
Gann and his identical twin brother Jordan Gann, known as the Romeo twins, have been separating people from their money for many, many years.
Although the notorious Gann brothers are older now and their looks have faded a bit due to their lifestyle, their ability to con people is still as sharp as ever as they continue to use their well-rehearsed ruses that they have honed to near perfection .
According to the woman we communicated with who wants to remain anonymous, she was convinced that she encountered Simon Gann just days ago and after their encounter she and her partner are now $1,000 poorer.
The couple met Gann in a coffee shop in Phoenix.
The man stuck up a friendly conversation with the couple and told them his first was Simon.
He seemed nice enough and very convincingly told them the same lies that he used many times saying that he graduated from MIT and was a math genius as well as a card counter.
The couple is involved in a crowdfunding project and Gann expertly honed in on that project.
After spending time gaining their trust, he told them he would like to contribute to their cause and suggested they go to a casino.
He said they would have to provide the seed money.
They accompanied him to two casinos and he gave them the slip at the second casino.
The woman used Google to find out more about Gann and articles on Las Vegas World News and other sites confirmed her suspicions.
She reported the incident to police.
The victim has also advised us that detectives contacted her and informed her that Simon Gann has been arrested and that there are also numerous outstanding warrants.
He reportedly went back to one of the casinos and had $14 thousand dollars on him which was impounded.
(We are still confirming this information. Ads of this writing Gann’s name does not appear in online Arizona inmate records.)
The woman says she is prosecuting.
Kudos to the victim for prosecuting. If more victims would have prosecuted when they were victimized perhaps Gann would have been kept incarcerated for longer time periods.
Let’s hope the judges in Arizona will impose the maximum sentence and keep Simon Gann off the street.
