Caroline Manzo's son Chris's photo used in sex ad scam

At least one person thinks that Chris Manzo is good looking enough to draw in the ladies. Unfortunately for Chris, who used to be on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" with his mom Caroline Manzo, that person has decided to wrongfully use his photo to get women to respond to his Craigslist ad.

On Wednesday, June 18, Chris posted a snapshot of a Craigslist ad from the personals section. The ad features a big photo of him, in a black T-shirt, looking directly at the camera and smiling. The ad's title states that he's a 32-year-old Italian male who is looking for a female for a no-strings-attached relationship. The description further states that he's looking for someone with whom he can make calls with whenever they "need [their] fix" and that women should send him their photos, location and phone number immediately because he "want[s] to start tonight."

Chris, clearly wanting people to know that he did not put up the ad and would even be so desperate to do so, warned his fans that it was the work of a "kidnapper." However, showing that he has a great sense of humor, which he often showed on "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Chris wrote that at least the scammer described his body as "athletic" rather than something truly horrible, like "gross."

It's not clear how Chris discovered the ad. It's likely that one of his fans alerted him. Or perhaps he discovered it when he was pursuing the personal ads himself? After all, there's no indication that he's in a relationship right now. He and his brother Albie Manzo even went on Patti Stanger's "Millionaire Matchmaker" once to find love.

After being seen on "The Real Housewives" for five seasons, Caroline Manzo and her entire family will now be seen on the spin-off "Manzo'd with Children." Set to premiere later this year, the show will also feature former housewife Jacqueline Laurita and her family.
