Daniloo's wife seeks divorce, their son

Convicted con artist Tony Daniloo lost his business, his fancy cars, his freedom and soon, perhaps, his marriage.

Citing irreconcilable differences, Nansi Daniloo of Turlock filed for divorce in late June, a few weeks after a federal judge ordered him to repay $6.7 mil- lion to lenders and victims around Modesto.

Tony Daniloo was served with divorce papers in Lompoc Federal Correctional Complex, where he is serving a 7½-year sentence after pleading guilty to 122 counts of fraud and money laundering.

Daniloo admitted to preying on the elderly, minorities and people with bad credit. His victims include relatives, friends and neighbors, and an Alzheimer's patient, according to lawsuits and an investigator.

Daniloo admitted to swiping his father-in-law's identity to buy a house and steal the new loan, and did the same with his father's identity, according to a lawsuit.

The Daniloos have "no assets or debts subject to disposition by the court," according to Nansi Daniloo's petition. She requests custody of their 5-year-old son.

Nansi Daniloo had been arrested with her husband in December 2004, but in a deal with the state agreed to repay victims $368,000 in exchange for escaping four felony counts. She never faced federal charges.
