Alleged scam artist arrested for child support

Posted By on Mon, Jul 12, 2010 at 1:35 PM


Scene readers may be familiar with Anthony Hodel, aka “Platinum Tony.” In 2005 we ran a cover story on Hodel, a fast-rising executive with a ballooning business, Platinum Warranty Corporation. The company supposedly sold car warranties, but in reality the products were bunk; Hodel was accused to scamming millions from clients before the company went bust. Last we caught up with Hodel, he was allegedly targeting student athletes, promising to match them with scholarships for a fee.

Recently Hodel was back in the news, but not for his usual tricks. On Sunday the Plain Dealer ran a full court press on deadbeat dads, including a gallery of mug shots of recent arrests. Among the flock: Anthony Hodel. According to the paper, he was arrested for failing to pay $15,610 in child support for his 9-year-old son.
