Do not buy anything from this man Gaetano Di Stefano. He just took me for almost $3,000 dollars. So if you live in Italy and want to make some money go over to this guys house and collect my money. You can have half of it. I was buying a Spontus from him. He had all the pictures of the illusion and him packing it. and even papers field out at the post office. Even videoed himself walking in and taking to me on Whatup APP. He did everything to let me know the illusion was being sent. It did not show up he said it was sent back to his house. He then told me he would send me back my money asked for my country code and filled everything out again and it never showed up but he had pictures of everything and even talked to me personally 4 times. Wow! So be careful. Now he won't even answer my iMessage or pm's. Just wanted to let my fellow magicians know who not to buy from.

Hire a retired private detective to track his whereabouts. I'm sure he will find him.


Good luck.

Stefano has been banned from the Café for many years under several different names for this exact reason. Sounds like he hasn't changed at all.

Sounds like he's quite an illusionist.
It's all in the reflexes.

It is sad that people are this way. It happens more and more. I had a small problem on eBay with someone trying to scam me. Thankfully, paypal backed me.

In this business, it is a very tight knit community. The people in the business know who to deal and not to deal with normally. I have reached out to other builders on occasion to get the "work: on somebody.

I am sorry you had to go through this. Dealing with people overseas is always scary because of the difficulty of following up in situations such as this.
Hopefully, you get some resolve on this and you never have to go through this again.
