Amdur’s dormant Twitter account stated that Carlo Bergonzi ‘proclaimed that Andrew has the finest tenor voice in the world.’

  • Whoever heard of him? … and it might seem from the quote on his Twitter account that he’s a swindler on more than one level!

  • Perhaps the world’s greatest tenor can put on a show from the inside and give us a rendition of “Prisoners of Love.”

  • What an awful story – let’s hope this vulnerable lady gets at least some of her money back as justice is done .
    We read that Amdur has a family – so let’s hope he uses his prison sentence wisely to prepare a better future for their sake.

    • The problem with incarcerating putting people who commit fraud is that it makes it harder for them to pay restitution. You can’t earn money in prison.

  • The role he should sing when he gets out is obvious: Mime (“Mimmy”) in SIEGFRIED. The ultimate con-man, whose con only failed because his mark acquired magical mind-reading powers at the last minute.
