REMINGTON…OR RUGER?: Con Artist Rob Carbone—The Would-Be Canadian Politician With A .22 Caliber Secret

Carbone & bride

Toronto native Rob Carbone first made news in 1991, when the 23-year-old milk distributor married Diana Pessotchinksaia just weeks after meeting her at a local strip joint, where he paid her to dance on his table.

Pessotchinksaia, an18-year-old from Leningrad, and a dozen other women, billed as "Gorby's Girls" and "The Russian Connection", claimed they were lured to Canada in January 1991 by promises of acting and modeling careers, then forced to strip for a living.

Carbone milked his celebrity status from the beginning, inviting the media to cover his April 4, 1991 wedding amd disclosing the news of their breakup "because someone had to come clean about the charade the newlyweds had been acting out before the cameras". Insisting to the press that he'd "never had a real marriage", Carbone conversely maintained he'd married Pessotchinksaia for love not, not to help her gain immigration status.

Carbone spent the days after his breakup bemoaning his lost love to Canadian and United States media, while his former bride spent her nights dancing naked at a Barrie, Ontario strip joint. 

It appears "Strippergate" taught Carbone a valuable lesson: people believe impossible things, if you keep repeating them.

In 2019, Carbone reinvented himself as a politico, and the leader of the Republican Party of Canada. Never mind that the "Republican Party of Canada" was never legally registered with Elections Canada, or that Carbone ever seriously raised funds for his political career.

It was just another con job--one of many Carbone has pulled in Canada and here in the United States.


On March l7, 2014, I introduced David Damante to my readers. A prolific con artist, Damante (who also used the names Robert Damante and David Diamante), Damante began promoting his relationship with Carbone on Facebook and Twitter. In early 2015, I received information about Damante and a scheme he called "Whey2Go" protein powder.

Damante had taken thousands of dollars from his "fiance", a woman he'd convinced to fund his efforts, creat corporate documents and bank accounts, while concealing his secret deep-pocketed convicted felon partner: a Toronto "Sicilian bomber billionaire" named Rob Carbone.

In a June 19, 2015 petition filed by a U. S. Probation Officer (excerpted above) detailing Damante's multiple probation violations related to Damante and his fraudulent Whey2Go scheme, Rob Carbone is identified as one of Damante's "friends". 

According to the petition, Carbone had been "supporting the offender financially since his release into the community on or about January 2015."

As late as August 20, 2018 (after Damante's second probation violation), Rob Carbone's name still appears on Damante's "No Contact" list.


On November 15, 2010, an arrest warrant issued in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Washington, charged Roberto (Rob) Carbone with "being an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States" in possession two firearms.

Carbone had been recorded in Washington State on video in October 2010 shooting several firearms, and was in the United States illegally.

In the video, Carbone states "Rob Carbone bringing it to you live...um, if you ever need a divorce, call the Bonestein." Upon finishing shooting, Carbone stated "and I promise you she will sign."

Carbone slipped back over the border into Canada, eluding arrest until April 12, 2013 when a flight he was on was diverted to San Diego, California. Carbone was arrested, and later plead guilty. 

A document filed June 6, 2013 on Carbone's behalf in advance of his Change of Plea hearing acknowledged, but did not detail, Carbone's "criminal history in Canada".


Carbone is barred from entering the United States without "advance legal permission of the United States Attorney General" of his/her representative.

So how does Carbone make his money?

It's clearly not through his phony "Global Investment and Private Financing"  firm, London Burke.

A "London Burke Inc." Ontario Business Corporation was created on March 30, 2015, but Carbone does not have a physical location in Toronto. 

Although Carbone purports to occupy office space at 23 Bedford Road in Toronto, the property's management company confirmed to me last week that "Rob Carbone does not have office space at 23 Bedford Road, and has never had an office space at that location."

Sounds like he could be a con man.

What do you think?


  1. Wow, thank you so much for this enlightening artical.

  2. Replies
    1. I've never sought one; if you're interested, FOIA the Bureau of Prisons.

    2. You state in your piece "It was just another con job--one of many Carbone has pulled in Canada and here in the United States."

      Do you have evidence of these con-jobs? He seems like weird little man. I can't tell if he is serious and thinks he will one day be elected Prime Minister of Canada or this is all part of some money making scheme.

      He claims to be wealthy. I'm wondering if this is true and based on legitimate businesses or did he accumulate assets from previous cons or he is not what he purports to be on any level.

      I hope you do a follow up on him.

    3. If you're interested in determining more about Carbone, his business and criminal histories, I would suggest that you contact his representative. Although I do have more documented evidence of his criminal past, along with confirmation that his purported "businesses" are primarily non-existent, I believe I've provided enough information already.

    4. Miss Fortune! Carbone posted this article to show the people on social media. He provided on social media his business articles Canada for LONDONBURKE INC. A CERTIFY AND ATTEST of his wealth in the billions. Mr. Carbone showed the people the end result of his trial that the judge gave 2 years for probation for not registering a handgun. Big deal who carry a gun. Mr. Carbone never sneaked into the U.S like you put it when he was legally married to American women from Santa Monica. They lived together for a decade and these charges were during the time of marriage. You my dear should get your facts. Your article is fake.    

    5. Rob (I know it's you!) I stand by every fact revealed in my news story, as it was based on official U. S. court documents. Carbone was charged with being "an alien illegally and unlawfully in the United States" in possession of two firearms which were "transported in interstate and foreign commerce". Carbone signed an agreement on May 14, 2013, pleading guilty to the offenses. The facts are the facts, and you plead guilty. (If I was your attorney, I'd advise you to STFU!)

    6. Lmao you’re clearly not very bright there old lady..

    7. Do some more digging and let's see what you come up with.

      What about the new revelation by Chris Sky that says Rob is in Charge of Canada's financial system and wants Chris to help him run it.
      He displays a legal document that supposedly proves this.
      Check out this two minute video link:


    8. Sky's lies refuted:

    9. this is amazing. Miss Fortune would you be interested in speaking more on this ?

    10. I would appreciate learning more; please contact me at: tcmissfortune@yahoo.com

  3. CAN'T possibly be as criminal as the 3 STOOGES...Trudeau, Ford and Tory.
    Take them down!!!

  4. Christopher Saccoccia, or as he calls himself "Chris Sky", is as crazy as a shithouse rat.

  5. What a shitty article. Why don't you write about our PM Trudeau, or Doug Ford, or Toronto's mayor Tory? Don't say there is nothing to be written about them.

  6. If only people knew what Rob Carbone was doing from 1993-2002.

    1. What was he doing? He calls himself the Donald Trump of Canada and he is self funding his political run, not asking for any donations whatsoever.

    2. I would love to know more about Carbone's activities between 1993-2002; his U. S. criminal history is revealed exclusively on this blog.

  7. Great article! Found it interesting and entertaining. Knew this guy was no good when he first popped up.

  8. https://t.co/eKziR3RGjr

  9. Great Article, you should do another one

    1. When there is more newsworthy information, I'll publish it--even though the "Remington" piece cost me the ability to post blog links on my Facebook. It was worth it!

  10. 23 Bedford Rd was location of shooting of a lawyer in 2016 in an attempted hit... shooter convicted, motive never clear...

  11. I don't think he is a bad person, do u know his struggles as an entrepreneur.The good works of men are written on "water and the bad works are written on brass"- William Shakespeare
