RAYMORE, Mo. — Mario Ambrose Antoine, a Kansas City-area man who posed as an adult producer and talent agent to dupe women into having sex and film them, was sentenced today to 10 years in federal prison without parole.

Antoine admitted to federal prosecutors that he defrauded at least 10 victims in a scheme that lasted for five years up until this past October. He had sex with the woman under the guise they were rehearsing for porn productions.

Antoine told the women, who signed contracts and modeling release forms including 18 U.S.C. § 2257 documents, that they would be paid thousands of dollars for their auditioning and modeling activity.

He said that they would be paid by Playboy-Worldwide.com and Playboy-Asia.com — entities that he said were associated with Playboy Enterprises Inc. But those domain names were actually registered by Antoine.

Victims of the wire fraud scheme were promised payments cumulatively totaling at least $550,000 and as much as $1.5 million.

Prosecutors alleged when the women complained about not being paid, Antoine forwarded images of their sexual activity to their employers or significant others.

Antoine had numerous aliases, including “Mario Sixstring,” “Mario Ferrari,” “Mario Danger,” “Chris Campbell,” “Dalton Wayne,” “Ryan Bollman,” “Reyna Dash,” “Carmen Resben,” “KindaGuitarded” and “Nikki.”
