Anne Hathaway
's ex-boyfriend/convicted conman Raffaello Follieri has just been taken from federal prison in Pennsylvania and kicked out of the country ... TMZ has learned. 

Follieri pled guilty to conspiracy, wire fraud, and money laundering back in 2008 -- after swindling millions from investors in an American church-buying scheme. He's been behind bars ever since.

Follieri was released today and immediately deported to his native Italy.

A rep for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement tells TMZ, “ICE carried out the order of an immigration judge, and removed Follieri from the United States May 25, 2012.”

Follieri dated Hathaway from 2004-2008.

His stealing azz should have stayed in jail here until every dime & penalty was paid back. How does this punish him? Yeah right, exactly. It doesn't.

It is a punishment of sorts to have to go through life as "Anne Hathaway's Ex-Boyfriend." Imagine all the times in Italy he will be asked by American tourists with cameras, "Pardon me, aren't you Anne Hathaway's Ex-Boyfriend?"

Granted "Love and Other Drugs" showcased a well toned and rarely clothed Ms Hathaway, one cannot help but remember a joke when you see her. A horse walks into a bar, the bartender says, :"Why the long face?"...

If he had stole billions, he never would have spent a day in prison

Good riddance to bad trash. Hilariously, it's not going to be any easier for him in Italy; his scam was claiming he represented the Vatican in raising funds for Vatican non-profit charities, which he poicketed & used to fund his bigtime lifestyle. With Italy being highly Catholic, there's a built-in level of outrage & anger towards him; they're going to scrag his ass...

Didn't he blame Anne for forcing him to swindle. He claimed because of her jetsetting lifestyle, he felt pressure to keep up and keep the money coming in.

Deported? I thought we didn't do that? Oh he's from Italy, not Mexico so I guess that's okay then.

Hey Anne, call me.

I promise, I am not some ponzi scheme foreign dude. I don't have any accent though so you probably won't fall for me.

So why does it take so long, if at all, to throw the illegal aliens out of this country?

Dear TMZ people, we know there are no Italians among you and Google Translate doesn't always work.

In Italian you don't use "arrivederci" nor "ciao" to say 'good bye'.
Arrivederci means 'until we see one another again'.

Well at least Raffaello's resume includes having sex with Anne Hathaway for four years.
