Carmine Annunziata aka Luciano Benandanti

| August 13, 2016

We were hacked sometime today and they deleted the original post about this guy. He sent us a cease and desist letter yesterday that was useless. We have our sleuths working on the server logs to determine who perpetrated this Federal crime, so you’ll read more about this.

Devil boy and Carmine


About three years ago we wrote about this Carmine Annunziata fellow who owned a clothing sales store (the Armed Forces MCSS) near Fort Dix, New Jersey. He was investigated for ripping off troops in the area as well as selling drugs and making phony military ID cards. He also claimed to be an Army major, but the NPRC said “Who?”

Now we hear that he has a different scam happening. He’s using a new name; “Luciano Benandanti” and he’s founded a Wiccan church “The Wiccan Church of Benandanti”.

name change

Notice how his address matches the church’s address;

Carmine L Annunziata

There’s much more about him and his criminal record at Fake Warriors.

    Looks like he got hair plugs or something. He looks one of those “Troll” dolls.

  2. justsayin says:

    Strange how all his FB friends are women. His last girlfriend/wife is dead and he appears to have endless funds – BMW – wants a Ferrari, wants more property “for the church.”

    His Wikin Church FB is here! Slam the thing with warnings and links to TAH.

  5. Starbux says:

    He attempted to set up a fund me type campaign but it looks like no bites as it expired. What a bag full of fermented dog shit!

  6. Jonn Lilyea says:

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      So that’s why the FB comments are ending up on the righthand column and the banner up top has an empty block of space (maybe ???) in it? I wondered what was wrong.

    • MrBill says:

      Who could have committed such a crime? Is it possible that someone with a lengthy criminal history did it, or solicited someone else to do it?

    • Flagwaver says:

      Someone should have told him that a hacking of a specific story the day after a C&D casts suspicion. Then again, from his extensive criminal profile, I’m guessing he isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.

  7. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    “Hey Carmine/Luciano/Whatever! This wiccanese pizza is cold!

  8. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    carmineannunziata. Dafuq is that?

  9. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Cease and desist from what?

    (This one is incomplete but I think that covers my three comments from the original thread.)

    • Jonn Lilyea says:

      Apparently he’s angry that he wasted that plastic surgery money now that we have identified him. We should cease and desist from proving they’re the same person.

      • Jonn Lilyea says:

        His caselaw study of the subject;

        In 1931, the maiden name of a former prostitute who was acquitted of murder was revealed in a film about the case. Since the trial, she had moved to another city, gotten married and adopted a new lifestyle.
        Her new friends were unaware of her past, so the disclosure of this true but embarrassing information was deemed an invasion of her privacy.

        Despite that example, Luciano Benandanti still claims that he is not Carmine Annunziata

        • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

          Ain’t gonna work in this case.

          Hey Carmine: the Internet is forever, you’re a sorry piece of shit and I live in Slammintonio.

          Come see me, bitch.

          • 2/17 Air Cav says:

            Kindalike playing “I see you” with a baby. (Gee, what happened to Carmine? I don’t see him anywhere. Where did he go?)

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          I have this image of Fr. Vito Sarduci. That and the classic NJ Guido.

        • 2/17 Air Cav says:

          Wiki law. Gotta love it. Is Carmine in California nowadays? The case is Melvin v. Reid, 297 P. 91 (Cal. App. 1931) and the ex-hooker who was acquitted of murder was one Gabrielle Darley. The film was “The Red Kimono.” I am considering making a film myself. I can’t decide on the title: “Wiccans on the Warpath” or “The Wiccan Frog Walk.”

          I would say more about the Darley matter but I don’t want to disappoint Carmine.

  10. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Yo. Carmine! Hack dis! (Points at crotch.)

  11. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Summbitch don’t like comments, huh? Well, lay it on boys and girls.

  12. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    Of course, the fact that the original of this thread was deleted doesn’t mean that the Wiccanese did it. And OJ was not guilty. Jury said so. That’s the last time I publish my SSN on this site!

  13. 2/17 Air Cav says:

    What am I, the only one left standing? Did the Wiccanese get everyone else? Maybe we’re tween shifts.

  14. Silentium Est Aureum says:

    Shitbags gotta shitbag. Cmon, dude. At least try something original.

  15. sj says:

    That smirk in the picture in the uniform triggers negative thoughts in me (ain’t I politically correct?)

  16. Ex-PH2 says:

    Snake oil salesman? Hardly! Snakes would skedaddle before they’d let him come near them!

    Unfortunately, Mr. Bendoverandkickme does not understand that what goes around comes around. Hacking someone’s website? Oh, how amateurish! Don’t worry, Carmine, you braindead loser, Karma knows what you did and what you smell like. You cannot hide from her. Period.

  17. HMCS(FMF) ret. says:

    Carmine us all upset that he’s been outed again for his shitbaggedry? Suck to be you Carmine Annunziata / Luciano Benandanti.

    Here’s hoping that the POPO get to make a visit at your residence or place of business.

  18. HMC Ret says:

    He paid to look like THAT?

  19. DragMagnet says:

    Carmine L Annunziata aka Luciano Benandanti has been seen hanging around in Tampa at a gay hotspot called The Honey Pot!!!!!! No kidding. Carmine loves chicks with dicks!!!!!! He’s beenseen with his little lap dog and a blonde who had (his/her) makeup applied with a trowel and a 6 inch paint brush. Hey Carmine, see you at the next drag show! You said the last one was “Wonderous”!!!!!

  20. Fjardeson says:

    So Carmine L Annunziata is into chicks with dicks. Why am I not surprised?

  21. justsayin says:

    Interesting updates on that Fake Warriors link. The guy doesn’t know when to admit he’s been had! The truth shall set you free.

  22. 1940 Brooklyn Avenue, Whiting, NY 08759 is “Goooooooooooooogle bound”, as is the name Luciano Benandanti, along with The Wiccan Church of Benandanti, so that those who want to avoid being scammed can see that Carmine Annunziata is trying to sucker good people. And Goooooogle is For Evah, (ask any nearly disbarred Lawyer).

  23. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Guess who filed a restraining order against me.

  24. Joseph Williams says:

    Okay Jonn, what are accused of this time. Telling the truth? Giving the PoPo leads to where to find the SHITBAG ? Joe

  25. nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

    Too bad the order doesn’t apply to me. Now I’ve got something to do this weekend…

    BTW: isn’t carmine a lipstick? (insert comment requiring brain-bleach here)

  26. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Yeah, I have to appear in court at 9AM Monday in Spring Hill, Florida – they served me after 4PM today. So I have lots of time to prepare.

  27. Skippy (my dependa does not speak for me) says:

    What the hell is it about fruit loops and Florida ?????

  28. Ex-PH2 says:

    It’s unfortunate that the sheriff waited so long to service you. The Service of Summons was issued on 8/19/2016.


    Why did they wait so long? That stuff can be faxed or e-mailed to the server.

    He also has a claim against Mary Schantag.

  29. Skippy (my dependa does not speak for me) says:

    This to sue

  30. ex-OS2 says:


  31. Flagwaver says:

    Two things I would ask.

    Please stop insulting Wicca. It’s okay to insult this douchecanoe, but don’t insult a full religion just because he decides that he wants to be his own personal goddess.

    Second, John please kick his arse in court. Restraining orders are primarily to keep the issuer safe and stop spreading lies. The fact that you aren’t threatening is going to shitcan the first and the fact that you have paperwork backing up your claims is going to shitcan the second.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Well, that, and hacking TAH and deleting a post by the owner are not exactly going to be in his favor.

      And I don’t think people insulting Wicca. They’re going after the moron CARMINE ANNUNZIATA, aka LUCIANO BENTANDDOUCHECANOE. Just my humble opinion.

      • Flagwaver
        I shot an email over to The Wild Hunt. I know that people are trying to get word over to the Witch’s Voice as well hoping that WitchVox will write about this guy. If at least wild Hunt does it will reach the Wiccan community. You know the pagan community is pretty well networked. Someone will drop a dime on this guy in a heartbeat. That’s why he keeps reporting people’s facebook pages for harassment and in my case, for harassment and being deceased.

  32. nbcguy54ACTUAL says:

    Time once again to hit the “donate” button as Jonn is again stuck with a cleaning bill. Most of us get to ride the pony but Jonn usually gets stuck shoveling the shit.

    Let’s show some love….

  33. OIF '06-'07-'08 says:

    Uh,,,,, does this now make him a full fledged member of the Dutch Rudderless Club?

  34. Jonn Lilyea says:

    Luciano claims that he isn’t Carmine, but they share a social security number and an address.

  35. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    There’s a certain question one can ask roach boogers like CARMINE ANNUNZIATA, it’s “Did it hurt? Did it hurt the day you fell out of someone’s ass and landed in the porcelain bowl?”.

  36. WickedBad says:

    Carmines’s new game is offering his victim “tea” before he takes advantage them. Imagine him loose in a womans home while the unsuspecting victim is unconscious. Oh yea and he’s using the false identity LUCIANO BENANDANTI of the WICCAN CHURCH OF BENANDANTI. It’s all a scam ladies! Do not let this criminal into your home for what he calls a “Home Blessing”. Do not set up a private meeting with him or his fake wiccan church and do not “RSVP” any of his invitations to meet with him anywhere. He may ask you to go for a ride in A BMW. It’s his deceased girlfriend, Cpt. Maria Garcia’s BMW.

    • EdUSMCLeg says:

      He actually had his name legally changed to Luciano Benandanti March 12th of last year in Ocean County, New Jersey. It is viewable through newspapers(dot)com from the Asbury Park Press if you search the name.

      • nbcguy54ACTUAL says:


        Italian for Lucifer??

        • EDUSMCLeg says:

          It was his original middle name. Guess he decided to keep it lol

        • Claw says:

          He probably thinks of himself as being on the same plane with “Lucky” Luciano.

          But a Google-Fu check of baby names reveals Luciano means *Light* or *Illumination*.

          For him it probably applies as *Being light in the loafers”.

  37. Beastly says:

    Wow! So this guy Luciano Benandanti is the same guy Carmine L Annunziata who stole a rental van and fled Florida after attempting kidnapping his girlfriend and got busted when he snuck back to FL etc. That’s the same military phony whose former girlfriends came forward on Topix and posted about his crazy behavior and steroid and marijuana dealing etc? And he has the audacity to return again to the State of FL.

  38. DBianchi says:

    How was Carmine L Annunziata able to legally change his name? It is illegal in NJ to change your name if you are a felon and have been involved in crimes of “dishonesty”! I read that he has a 24 page criminal record loaded with check forgeries and larcenies and grand theft and lots of other.crimes. So again how could this felon legally change his name? Looks like he slipped through the cracks again.

    • DBianchi: I am not sure, but I think that he has a Florida address as well as the NJ address. He is a slimer.

      • EDUSMCLeg says:

        Florida also requires a felon to notify the local Sheriff they are in their county within 48 hours of arriving. If he maintains a residence in Florida and hasn’t notified them of this and the name change, it could spell trouble for him.

        • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

          Maybe he thinks the name change will let him slither out of having to register? I wouldn’t put it past that walking barrel of toad and slug snot!

  39. EDUSMCLeg says:

    Is he living in Florida and a convicted felon? We have a felon registry law which requires a felon to register/notify the Sheriff within 48 hours of entering another county. I wonder if he let the local sheriff know he changed his name.

    775.13 Registration of convicted felons, exemptions; penalties.—
    (1) As used in this section, the term “convicted” means, with respect to a person’s felony offense, a determination of guilt which is the result of a trial or the entry of a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, regardless of whether adjudication is withheld.
    (2) Any person who has been convicted of a felony in any court of this state shall, within 48 hours after entering any county in this state, register with the sheriff of said county, be fingerprinted and photographed, and list the crime for which convicted, place of conviction, sentence imposed, if any, name, aliases, if any, address, and occupation. If the felony conviction is for an offense that was found, pursuant to s. 874.04, to have been committed for the purpose of benefiting, promoting, or furthering the interests of a criminal gang, the registrant shall identify himself or herself as such an offender. The Department of Law Enforcement, in consultation with appropriate local law enforcement agencies, may develop standardized practices for the inclusion of gang affiliation at the time of offender registration.
    (3) Any person who has been convicted of a crime in any federal court or in any court of a state other than Florida, or of any foreign state or country, which crime if committed in Florida would be a felony, shall forthwith within 48 hours after entering any county in this state register with the sheriff of said county in the same manner as provided for in subsection (2).
    (4) This section does not apply to an offender:
    (a) Who has had his or her civil rights restored;
    (b) Who has received a full pardon for the offense for which convicted;
    (c) Who has been lawfully released from incarceration or other sentence or supervision for a felony conviction for more than 5 years prior to such time for registration, unless the offender is a fugitive from justice on a felony charge or has been convicted of any offense since release from such incarceration or other sentence or supervision;
    (d) Who is a parolee or probationer under the supervision of the United States Parole Commission if the commission knows of and consents to the presence of the offender in Florida or is a probationer under the supervision of any federal probation officer in the state or who has been lawfully discharged from such parole or probation;
    (e) Who is a sexual predator and has registered as required under s. 775.21;
    (f) Who is a sexual offender and has registered as required in s. 943.0435 or s. 944.607; or
    (g) Who is a career offender who has registered as required in s. 775.261 or s. 944.609.
    (5) The failure of any such convicted felon to comply with this section:
    (a) With regard to any felon not listed in paragraph (b), constitutes a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
    (b) With regard to any felon who has been found, pursuant to s. 874.04, to have committed any offense for the purpose of benefiting, promoting, or furthering the interests of a criminal gang, constitutes a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
    (6) Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect any law of this state relating to registration of criminals where the penalties for registration, notification, or reporting obligations are in addition to, or in excess of, those imposed by this section.

  41. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    I wonder what kind of chickenshit stunt he’ll pull next?

  42. M0urning-star says:

    I want this rat of a man to finally be stopped. I have sat on the sidelines for many many years keeping quiet.
    I am the daughter of Cpt Maria Garcia. I have detested him since day one, and he knew very well of my feelings for him.
    My mother was the sweetest kindest person you could ever meet. Everyone who met her, loved her. This monster took advantage of her since day one. I was only 13 years old when they met and I remember all the bruises on her and all the fights they used to get into. He manipulated her into doing whatever he wanted, and my mother following her heart gave in.

    EVERYTHING was under my mothers name. The apartments they rented the cars, every single “business” he started. Even that house in jersey he’s now using as his “church” was my mothers. She knew she didn’t want him to have anything and she always had a fall back. She had me on her will to get it all, but of course convientely he came out with another “will” that states him as the sole heir and he got it all. I knew my mother best. She confided everything to me, and she wanted him to have nothing.

    She detested him, but she felt so bad for him since he had no family that’s why she stayed.
    Even a few days before she passed away, I tried to use his arrest to get her away from him. I was even willing to move in with her to keep him away from her. But of course everything fell apart and he saw an opening like the diseased rat that he is and scammed his way to take control.
    My mother loved that house. It was her dream house, and she wanted my brother and I to have it all. Now that dream is crushed along with everything else that monster of a man gets his hands on.

    I don’t want another life to be ruined by the “man”. I’ve been through so much and every time I think he’s out of my life for good, he still manages to pop up again like herpes.

  43. What goes around comes around and Carmine aka Luciano has alot coming his way. Amen.

  44. 7DayEmployee says:

    I worked with this guy for a while in New Jersey. It only lasted a week before I could no longer stand it. It seemed like it would be a good gig, but it became apparent very quickly that he was a slime ball. He would make copies of everyones Military IDs (which he knew was illegal) when they bought something. He also said that he was a licensed fugitive recovery agent in his spare time (also BS). He’s just a huge fake and criminal. Cannot believe this guy is not in jail.

  45. Revenge says:

    Anybody know where this piece of trash is please let it known. I can’t wait to cross paths with it again.

    • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

      Check the local jails… work is that Carmine loves himself some cockmeat sammiches and tube steak something fierce!

  46. ScumCrusher says:

    Carmine L Annunziata is at it again!!!!! Using the alias Luciano Benandanti this shitbag is living near Tampa, FL and he has a shitbag website scamming US soldiers! It’s true. This piece of crap military phony has put together a piece of shit website and on yhis site he says “Get Ready For War” and he has a bunch of photographs stolen from news websites like the adaily Mirror and Reuters. He has attempted to temove tge copyright at the bottom of the photos but he is too dumb to realize that his thefts are easily tracked by Reuters. On this site he is peddling substandard uniforms that are not authorized for duty and will put any soldier tricked into buying this shit in harms way on the battlefront. This criminal lowlife piece of shit should be locked in prison immediately! Oh yeah and he’s still driving around in the BMW that he stole from Cpt. Maria Garcia and her house in Whiting NJ was forclosed on by the bank because of him. But he’s still using that address for his scams. One last thing he claims that his ridiculous has a location at 350 Fifth Ave NY, NY but this address is The Empire State Building! What a loser! This idiot criminal actually thinks that people are going to believe that he has an office in the Empire State Building! He can’t afford the shithole he squats in in FL! What an asshole.

  47. Mario says:

    Where are you Carmine! I’ve been waiting for you. I have such sights to show you.
