‘The Steeple Times’ names and shames Knightsbridge’s worst scammer for what he truly is; meet Francesco Grasso – his name means ‘fat’ in Italian
The word ‘Grasso’ means ‘fat’ in Italian and in the case of one Francesco Grasso, the truth is that this pig of a man gets ‘fat’ at the expense of others.
Greaseball Grasso – a badly dressed, deviant leach – rents flats and houses in Knightsbridge and its environs. He pretends, with the assistance of others including his common as muck ‘partner’ Margaret Cabo, someone called Miss Beatty and another by the name of Ibrahim, that he’s renting these properties for himself. He then sub-lets on a day-by-day basis and then, once he feels ready, stops even paying the rightful owners the rent that was agreed.
In the case of a most unfortunate property owner in Walton Street, Grasso took on a tenancy at just under £1,000 per week. He then turned her beautifully decorated four bedroomed house into a complete squat. He put in extra beds, ‘redecorated’ the place with ghastly wallpaper that would be more suitable for a backstreet curry joint in Hounslow and currently rents this now squalid property out at £800 per night. He has not paid a single penny in rent since last September but sadly due to the slow movement of the cogs of justice, he’s connivingly been able to keep himself with a set of keys and already cost the owner over £14,000 in legal fees.
Others, amongst them a lady from Dubai who rented out her Beauchamp Place flat to this spiv, spent over £40,000 to get rid of Grasso after he turned her property into an Airbnb fleapit. Here, indeed, is someone with not an ounce of decency. Here, instead, is a conman of the first order and today we name this repugnant specimen for the disgrace that he truly is.
