What do The Salad Oil King and Robin Hood have in common?

Tino De Angelis (l) , AKA The Salad Oil King and the legendary Robin Hood (r) at their place of business

THE ANSWER? The both robbed from the rich and gave to the poor.

But there were distinct differences between the two men…

There are no Robin Hood corporate books that recorded Robin’s gifting. So, Robin’s mythical legend grows unabated with each passing decade.

The Salad Oil King was for real. Tino was perhaps the greatest pre-internet white-collar scam artist. When the dust settled, he had masterminded a mind-boggling $13 billion stock fraud that brought down two blueblood brokerages and halted trading on the stock market for a day.

Despite his historic run, Tino’s story has somehow been lost in history. Until now.
Fonso Gravenese, the protagonist in The Salad Oil King. An American Tale of Greed Gone Mad, is based on Tino’s unique career of greed, corruption, romance and loyalty.

P.S. Did I mention that Tino was my father’s first business partner?
