Con Man George Binakis Is Hiding. Is Patrick Paraskivas Binakis Helping Him?

Where Is George?

Where is George Binakis? George is hiding somewhere from his victims and from the authorities. There are many people who'd like to know where he is or how to find him, especially the victims of his multiple frauds.

After scamming a 72 year old woman in NYC out of $65,000, George Binakis should be behind bars either awaiting trial or already convicted. Instead, he is free somewhere in the United States or possibly his native country of Greece.

The Con

George sold himself as a successful contractor (principal of Bespoke Contracting and Design Inc.) who could renovate luxury apartments. His story includes exaggerated claims of legitimate licensing, as well as tales of medical problems, including a serious heart condition that requires a pacemaker. He often feigns illness. These set up the victim for sympathy.

In the specific case discussed here, the victim was so convinced of both George's honesty and the seriousness of his health issues that when he disappeared, her first concern was for his well being - she was certain he had either died or was suffering a grave condition in some intensive care unit.

What Role Is Patrick Paraskivas Binakis Playing In This Scam?

But when she called his brother to check up on George's health, Patrick Paraskivas Binakis, told her he had NO contact with his brother. When she happened to mention the money, Patrick HUNG UP on her! By itself this was a problem and indicated that Patrick might know more than he wanted to reveal. When her son in law called, Patrick HUNG UP on him, but on a subsequent call, said that he had very little contact with George. The victim spoke with one of the subcontractors who also called and Patrick told him that George was getting better. So 3 different stories to 3 different parties. These discrepancies along with the horrific and unnecessarily rude treatment she endured at the hands of Patrick Binakis finally convinced her that George was very obviously not who he claimed and that Patrick, while not proven to be complicit, was very likely party to knowledge that could lead to George.
