A man who scammed a Huntington woman out of $200,000 while posing as a home contractor has pleaded guilty to attempted grand larceny.
Nick Spano, 59, is due back in court Jan. 18 and could face 2-4 years in prison.
According to the investigation, Spano exploited the victim from September of 2019 to December 2020. Spano had been recommended to the victim by another contractor, and in September 2019 he gave an estimate for home improvement work on the victim’s home. Spano then manipulated the victim into giving him money for different reasons. Eventually, he made threats of violence against the victim, her family, and her associates. This continued for more than a year, until the victim’s retirement and savings accounts were depleted. When Suffolk County Police Department Second Precinct officers arrested Spano on April 24, 2022, police reported, Spano said, “She’s doing this because I took her for the money.”
Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney said Friday, “This defendant agreed to help the victim out with home repairs, but instead he exploited position as a contractor to take advantage of the victim and steal her life savings,”
Spano’s case was heard before Supreme Court Justice Timothy P. Mazzei.

My mother ( rest her soul ) unfortunately dated this trash for a couple of years. This guy took my cousin Vanessa in east meadow who had twins and quads for $5,000. For a fence job that he never did. Later he took a woman in the same area for money on a job my father helped him get on and left us with the work. He’s a degenerate crack addict that’s gotten away with so much crime and 2-4 is a joke of a sentence for him. He’ll never stop being who he is. He’s just a con man who cares about no one but himself.
