Francesco Galdelli, 58, and his wife Vanya Goffi, 45, who has been fleeing for six years, was arrested on Saturday in the Thai city of Pattaya in a joint operation by Royal Thai police and Italian agents from Interpol, Italian police said in a statement.
In 2010, Clooney took over testimony in Italy and accused the couple of fraudulent use of his name and forged signatures to create a fake model line.
Galdelli and Goffi also organized a series of scams and fraud  including selling counterfeit Rolex watches online and sending their victims salt packs instead of clocks, Italian police said.
The couple were sentenced and sentenced in 201
"Until 2013, they were going to Thailand," said Italian police Andrea Vitalone to CNN. "They were regarded as respectable citizens and even charitable among the Italian community in Thailand. Galdelli even made massive donations to charity that support disabled children and children with HIV. Then they started."
They were finally caught on Saturday After the police surrounded the luxury villa, where they were hailed, police said.
Galdelli subsequently admitted to publishing George Clooney to deceive people, a spokesman for the police spokesman told CNN.
He was arrested for illegal entry and stay in Thailand when "there was no legitimate migration record of his current entry and residence," police said. Goffi, whose entry had been registered, was accused of overstaying in the country.
Galdelli was previously arrested in 2014 at Dusit Thani Hotel in the Thai resort of Pattaya. But he managed to escape one day later, Italian police said.
The local police found out that he had bribed prison guards responsible for his transfer and paid them 20,000 Thai baht (£ 500), which he personally withdrew from a cash machine in custody, police said.
The two Italians are being detained at the Aliens Agency detention center in Pattaya pending extradition procedures.
The Italian police called the operation "Italian Bonnie and Clyde" after the American bank robbers in the Great Depression. 19659015] Jib Pirada helped report.
