Rucci to appear on ‘American Greed’

Staff report


Poland-based attorney Sebastian Rucci will appear on tonight’s episode of “American Greed” (10 p.m., CNBC).

Rucci played a key role in bringing justice to the victims of a con man who bilked tens of millions of dollars from wealthy citizens of St. Louis several years ago.

The victims invested in an overseas real-estate scam perpetrated by Martin Sigilito, a jet-setting international lawyer and Anglican bishop. Sigilito was undone by his secretary, who became suspicious of his activities.

Rucci is the owner of Hotel California, the resort hotel in Austintown that will open in the near future. Hotel California is near the Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Race Course, on state Route 46, which will open in November.

“American Greed” is a true-crime series that examines the dark side of the American Dream, according to its website.
