Just week’s before she must report to prison, a FALSE report came out that the Feds raided Teresa Giudice’s New Jersey home. Numerous media outlets reported today that the raid took place on Monday and that the Feds confiscated high-dollar items that Teresa and her husband Joe withheld on their asset declaration report during their October 2nd sentencing.
Giudice â€œwas absolutely stunned by the raid. She had no clue they were coming. She was absolutely hysterical. They were there for hours,â€ one insider toldÂ RadarOnline, adding thatÂ Teresa was forced to stay in the kitchen while federal officers searched her home to cross-examine items Teresa and Joe declared on their financial report as compared to what the bankruptcy trusteeâ€™s investigator found.
The “insiders” claimed that the officers reportedly found expensive Christmas gifts for Teresa’s four daughters, which they took. Teresa was â€œbegging them not to take the girlsâ€™ Christmas presents,â€ the source said. â€œThe Giudices have a lot of possessions that they did not try to claim when first granted the opportunity to rightfully do so. Due to additional information that was received after, the feds felt they had no choice but to do this.”
RumorFix reported, â€œThey found lots of real jewelry, which had a high monetary value,â€ a source shares, adding that Teresa told the judge most of her jewelry was costume jewelry and worth $0 dollars on the day she was sentenced. â€œThey took everything jewelry wise except her wedding band.”
Officers were also supposedly shocked at â€œa large amount of cashâ€ that was hidden in the wine cellar.
“Itâ€™s now being used against what the Giudices owe the government,” the source said. â€œThe property will now be auctioned off with the money going into a trust account. If there is any money left over, it would go to paying creditors in their bankruptcy, in which they owe $14.3 million.â€
U.S. Attorney’s Office Confirms False Report:
AÂ spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office that prosecuted the couple forÂ bankruptcy, mail and wire fraud has also confirmed that this report is FALSE.Â Matt Reilly, the U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman, tells NJ.com that his office is continuing to work with the GiudicesÂ to schedule repayment, and has not ordered any such seizure.
“Anyone went over there under official capacity, it would be under us,” he says.
