Celebrities who got scammed
What happened: Dana Giacchetto was another financial adviser to the stars whose "advice" proved ill-advised, as he was eventually convicted of swiping around $10 million from his client's accounts, including $250,000 from actor Ben Stiller.
But according to The New York Observer, Stiller was one of the lucky ones in that his money was repaid -- with money taken from the retirement account of the band Phish, who wound up being one of Giacchetto's biggest victims.
The conclusion: Giacchetto was known, for a time, for his close personal association with Leonardo DiCaprio. But the A-list actor reportedly got his money out in time, as did magician David Blaine, and actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. Not so lucky, according to the Observer: B-52s singer Fred Schneider, who had $339,000 withdrawn from his account. While it was mostly unclear exactly who lost what in the haze of Giacchetto's financial misdeeds, others caught in his tangled web at one point or another included Steven Van Zandt and Tobey Maguire. Giacchetto served three years in prison.
