A baby-faced 'Wolf of Wall Street' wannabe duped Facebook into approving pricey advertising lines of credit that the Brooklyn college graduate later sold off for big bucks, a new lawsuit charges.

The New York Post reports that sports-car-loving Martin Grunin — who told his St. Francis College student paper last year, 'Money drives me completely' — convinced Facebook reps to open advertising accounts with high limits for him, according to the federal suit filed last week.

He then flipped the social network’s ad space for hundreds of thousands of dollars while Facebook didn’t see a dime, according to the suit, filed in San Francisco.

By the time Facebook sent out their bills, Grunin, 22, had already cleared about $350,000 for the online ad space, the suit estimates.
