Frederick H. Banks didn’t waste time seeking revenge against the FBI agent who helped land him in prison for a decade.

TribLive.com reports that the 47-year-old Pittsburgh man is accused of harassing the agent and posting a Craigslist ad pretending to be the agent seeking men to have sex with him and his wife.

He was finished with his federal probation less than a month before allegedly posting the ad June 25.

Banks, who spent 10 years behind bars for selling pirated software and using counterfeit checks, was indicted Aug. 5 by a grand jury.

Joseph Romano, a convicted con man, wanted revenge for being sentenced to 15 years behind bars.

So much so, reports the New York Daily News, that he tried to hire hitmen to torture and decapitate the judge and prosecutor who oversaw his case in New York.

An added bonus to the killers: Store their heads in formaldehyde until Romano’s release from prison, according to the Daily News, citing authorities at a court hearing Tuesday.

Romano, 49, was convicted in 2010 of wire and bank fraud in connection with a scheme to sell collectible coins at outrageously inflated prices.
