Paul Nassif

I Was Scammed

By a Real Estate Con Man!

EXCLUSIVE

Paul Nassif LawsuitA fool and his money are soon parted ... just ask Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Paul Nassif who says a con artist bilked him out of nearly $400K in a real estate scam.

Nassif claims Anthony Zogaib came to him last year with a plan to buy fixer-uppers online, spend $10-15K to repair each of them, then flip them for big fat profit.

Nassif -- ex hubby of "Housewives" star Adrienne Maloof -- claims in a lawsuit, he paid 50% of the downpayment and 50% of the remodel costs.  The plan was for them to split the profits.

Nassif says he shelled out a total of $367,000 to Zogaib -- but the dude never bought a single home.  He says Zogaib refused to return his money.

We've reached out to Zogaib ... so far no word back.

Pie, meet sky.

With a name like Zogaib why would you believe any word he says, plus any offer I online is not worth investing 50 % on. If only he had advisors from his Maloof connections... Adrienne must be loving this...

Buying property online? What a greedy, stupid a$$hole. Any flipper or developer who knows what works and what doesn't does a hands on walk through, or has an inspector on retainer. If he's buying property online I have a few great places for him to buy. www. a$$holegardens. com

What a shame all of his good sense didn't pan out for him this time. Poor thing. I hope he reads the TMZ articles so he can see how the site is flooded with money-making opportunities offered on every single page of every single story. There are hundreds of them to choose from here!
