Stupid Poker Criminals Hall of Fame Welcomes Essam Ahmed Eid

It's been a long time since we've inducted someone into our esteemed Stupid Poker Criminals Hall of Fame but this one merits the attention.

Essam_ahmedeidEssam Ahmed Eid (pictured), a 53-year-old Egyptian terrorist man who was a dealer in the Bellagio Poker Room, which really blows now by the way, started a murder-for-hire operation, and rather than do it on the down low, he started a company called Hitman for Hire complete with a website at www.hitmanforhire.net. It's now defunct but you can see an archived version of the site here.

While setting up the site alone would earn Eid, who went by the name "Tony Luciano," a place in the hallowed halls of our SPCHoF, the stupid criminal stuff he did after people actually contacted him through the site raises his stupidity to a whole new level. Really, they don't get any more stupid-er than Eid.

For an example, consider this: Some lady from Ireland named Sharon Collins contacted him through his site and ended up hiring him to kill her rich Irish lover and his two sons. Eid gets a down payment from her and then flies to Ireland where he plans to double-cross her. To do so he breaks into the rich dude's office, steals two computers and calls one of the sons he's supposed to kill, returns a computer to him and tells him there was a contract on his life, which he could avoid if he handed over $150,000. Of course, the son calls the cops, who then arrest Eid and recover the computer that has all the email conversations between him and Collins.


Read all of the details about how stupid Eid was, except for the part where he was banging two chicks, in a great write-up by the Las Vegas Sun's Abigail Goldman here. Or wait until this stuff becomes a movie. It's only a matter of time.

OK, kidding aside, I totally remember this guy! That's scary.

it really is shocking that hitmanforhire.com wasn't available.
