November 20, 2020 – Philadelphia mob associate Anthony (Tony Mortgage) Ambrosino was sentenced to a year and a half in federal prison last week for, yep, you guessed it, a mortgage scam. His mortgage swindle netted him $300,000, all but $10,000 of which he’s being forced to return in restitution payments.
The 41-year old Staten Island, New York resident pleaded guilty back in the summer. He’ll report to begin serving his sentence in January.
Ambrosino is a former Gambino crime family associate who has gravitated to the Bruno-Scarfo crime family in South Philly over the past few years. FBI surveillance units have observed him meeting with reputed Philly mob acting boss George (Georgie Boy) Borgesi on a number of occasions since 2017.
In the 2000s, Tony Mortgage acted as a driver and bodyguard for Gambino soldier, Salvatore (Sal the Pizza Man) Romano, a Wall Street wiz known for mastering the pump-and-dump scam. Romano flipped on his superiors in the Gambinos after he was indicted in a $100,000,000 pump-and-dump case. The Borgesi camp has strong connections to the Gambinos in New York and Florida, per sources.
