Of all the victims that handsome Italian-American businessman Raffaello Follieri allegedly duped, actress Anne Hathaway fell the hardest.
The stunningly beautiful and talented Hathaway, 25, thought she had found her prince charming in the 30-year-old real estate magnate.
What she found instead was a slimy white-collar criminal.
Even as some friends say they warned Anne about Raffaello Follieri, she stuck by him for months as allegations of his wrongdoing swirled.
In April, he bounced a check ... for $215,000. In May, Follieri's charity - on which Anne once served on the board - came under investigation by the New York State attorney general's office for tax irregularities.
That was the last straw for Anne Hathaway, and not a moment too soon.
Just last week, Follieri was arrested on charges of fraud and conspiracy, as well as money laundering. On June 24, he was branded a "con man" in court by the FBI and prosecutors, accused him of bilking investors of millions.
