Teresa and Joe Giudice have a serious heavy hitter in their corner -- Big Ang from "Mob Wives" -- who tells TMZ she's convinced the alleged bank scammers are COMPLETELY INNOCENT.

In fact, Ang is not only connected to the Genovese crime family -- but was once arrested in an undercover cocaine sting and pled guilty to an intent to distribute charge.
