theodp (442580) writes "Last time Slashdot checked in on zit-popping Amazon Ecommerce Platform Sr. VP Brian Valentine, it was about the ex-Sr. Microsoft VP's decision to ditch his Vista role for a pot of Amazon gold. Now, GeekWire reports that Valentine was swindled out of $165,000 by a Tom Petty booking agent impersonator, and the FBI is on the case. The $165,000 was half of the $330,000 that Valentine had agreed to pay to have Petty play at his wedding. But there's no need to cry for Valentine, who still had enough time and deep enough pockets to pay the real Tom Petty's management company to have the rock star perform for his bride, a former Amazon exec who is apparently quite the fan."
