When you've pled guilty to fraud in the past, it's probably a pretty good idea to keep your current business very clean.
Unfortunately, it looks like Teresa Giudice doesn't play by the rules because it's rumored she's been practicing some shady business.
She was recently signing books at The Porsche Spring Soiree in Garfield (yes, that Porsche), and there were some red flags being raised over how the signing was conducted!
It seems that not only was she charging fans for her signature and pictures, but she was only accepting CASH payments!
An insider has revealed what the scene was like:
"Teresa was advertised as the the celebrity guest and that she would be signing copies of her latest book. But nowhere was it advertised that she would be charging guests $25 to sign and take a photo with her! When you walked up to her, the woman next to her was quick to advise that it was $25 and ‘cash only.’ Cash only? Who takes cash only? Even Teresa was telling guests it was ‘cash only, no receipts’ and she had bags of cash beside her where her colleague was collecting the money."
Bags of cash??!!
Who is she? A cartoon burglar??
Well, if she is, the Real Housewives of New Jersey firecracker better cover her tracks because even her fans have figured out what she's trying to pull here:
"Everyone was saying it was clearly to avoid a paper trial of her sales … I wonder if Teresa was taking cash only so she could avoid having to declare that income? It’s a possibility."
Oh Tre, it's never good to commit more fraud on top of fraud.
We just hope she's smart this time with the money she's making…and we're not talking about investing it in leopard print!
