Italian football legend Andrea Pirlo has taken legal action against 48yr old Alessandro Palazzolo, who has been impersonating him for years.
Palazzolo (who looks a lot like Pirlo) used Pirlo’s identity to buy things and pay for expensive services. Pirlo was always being approached by duped businesses who kept insisting that he owed them. He had no idea what they were talking about until he launched an investigation.
Italian police were able to track down Palazzolo using phone calls and accounts from the people he duped.
Pirlo has sued Palazzolo for an undisclosed amount of money or terms.
Good for him!
