A Michigan man was sentenced to four years in federal prison for stealing $125,740 from 300 VIP gamblers in Michigan and Kansas while using elaborate disguises to pass as an elderly man- and sometimes woman.  

John Christopher Colletti, 56, wore full prosthetic face masks, hats, glasses, surgical masks, and a walker to transform into an unassuming elderly person during his crime sprees. 

When he was found he was in the possession of personal information belonging to 300 victims, as well as several face masks - including one of a woman. 

The conman stole the names, driver's license numbers, and the last four digits of people's Social Security numbers to access the bank accounts of VIP gamblers using Global Payments Gaming Services kiosks at various casinos.

While disguised as an elderly person, Colletti used the stolen personal information at the casino kiosks which offer jackpot processing, e-check, ATM, and cash advance services. 

On March 12, 2020, he was arrested at the Prairie Band Casino and Resort in Mayetta, Kansas, when red flags drew the attention of law enforcement over multiple large cash withdrawals. 

He was dressed as an elderly white man wearing a straw hat, and glasses using a walker as he made more than $20,000 in cash withdrawals. 

After being questioned by security about the large sum of his withdrawals, Colletti immediately headed to the restroom where he removed his disguise and 'exited the casino with a noticeable bulge down the front of his pants, believed to be the prosthetic face mask,' according to FBI reports. 

On to the crooks scheme, investigators found his clothes, walker, $11,000 cash, and two Michigan driver's licenses in the bathroom. The driver's licenses belonged to two known victims and had sticky notes attached containing the victims’ social security number and telephone number but the photos had been altered to show an individual wearing the prosthetic face mask.
