Anne Hathaway's Ex -- Vati-Con Loot Up for Auction

9/3/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anne Hathaway’s con man ex-BF ain't through with the feds yet ... TMZ has learned Uncle Sam is about to auction off a bunch of the dude's expensive stuff -- including several Rolexes and a Tiffany clock.

As we previously reported, several items belonging to Raffaello Follieri were confiscated during the criminal investigation into his real estate scam ... in which he lied about his connections with the Vatican to lure investors.

Now, TMZ has learned several items seized by the feds will be a part of an online auction administered by the U.S. Marshals Service between September 14-28.  According to the Department of Justice, all proceeds will go to Raffa's victims.

Raffa -- who dated Hathaway from 2004-2008 -- pled guilty to 14 counts of wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering after feds busted him 2 years ago. He is currently serving a 4.5 year prison sentence.

Don't think Anne Hahaway didn't know what her bf was doing. She was enjoying 5 star travel , dinning and gifts. Then when the feds moved in, she rolled on him to save her her own butt.

Maybe Anne could auction off some quality time to help the investors. Or some services?

Great post.

Perhaps I can just add to this that the best way to guard against being ripped off by online sales or auctions of any kind, Craigslist and eBay included—and whether seller or buyer—is to use a *bona fide* online escrow company. Especially for pricier items like antiques, jewelry and autos. Although it does add some cost, it takes the uncertainty out of the transaction, and that’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

For my money, the best bona fide online escrow (and there seems to be ten fraudulent escrow sites for every bona fide one) is probably Escrow.com (http://escrow.com). In fact, it’s the only one that eBay recommends, and is the only online escrow company that is licensed to provide escrow services all across the United States.

Take care,
