Professing love via racy text messages, and telling him "cant wait to fuck ur hard cock," professional escort Dalia Dippolito convinced an ex-lover to help her try to bankrupt her new husband.
According to lengthy text message transcripts obtained by the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office, Dalia cajoled Mike Stanley to help her freeze the bank account of Michael Dippolito, who was on probation for organized fraud. The lovers also discussed planting drugs on Dippolito, so that he would be arrested for violating his probation. After all those plots failed, Dalia was arrested by the Boynton Beach police for
allegedly hiring a hit man to kill Dippolito.
Sweetly, persistently, and sometimes crudely, Dalia professed her love for Stanley, a California man whom she had dropped before meeting Dippolito. Stanley was thrilled to hear from her, and began to help in her plot.
"No one has ever made me feel the way u have, u always spoiled and romanced me and I loved it," Dalia texted Stanley in July 2009.
"I was truly in love w u, so crazy about u, and have never felt that way before or after u," he responded.
Stanley was the mystery man who flew across the country to hook up with Dalia at a West Palm Beach Marriott.
"So happy i saw u baby," Dalia texted Stanley after their rendezvous on July 15, 2009.
"Me too! soulmates," he wrote back.
"LOL baby i love u and i only want to fuck u. i'll be here waiting for u, u have made me smile and laugh. haven't done that in forever," she wrote.
An hour later, Dalia asked what Stanley thought of her cosmetically-enhanced figure. "so do u approve of my boobs" she wrote.
"Need another look and touch...lol, ahhh YES" he responded.
As their rekindled relationship progressed, Dalia made it clear that if Stanley wanted to be with her, he had to help her bankrupt Dippolito, or send him to jail.
Michael Dippolito was on probation for running a telemarketing scam, and owed around $191,000 in restitution to his victims. He hadn't paid the tab, yet he seemed to have an abundance of cash on hand -- enough to buy a $225,000 townhouse, and give Dalia $100,000. Dalia wanted Stanley to help her rat out Dippolito to the feds, and freeze his bank account.
Stanley had fallen for her, and was happy to oblige.

"Dalia i never lost hope," he texted July 20. "Dalia i love u and truly deeply care about and want to protect ur well being and best interest," he continued.
She wrote back: "can u cll the treasury dept and ask them to look up his file and ask them if they would freeze his acct. he has over 100 k."
"ok," Stanley responded.
