Willie d is arrested?
Founding Geto Boy member Willie D was arrested by federal authorities who accuse the gangsta rap pioneer of running a scam involving iPhones.
Willie D., born William James Dennis, was taken into custody at Bush Intercontinental, after he was indicted for his relationship with a company named Texas One Wireless.
According to the Houston Press, Willie D. posed as an electronic salesman and used eBay to interact with international buyers.
He conducted businesses transactions independent and outside of eBay, and allegedly took numerous orders for iPhones and other electronics.
Funds were transferred into the rapperís bank account and he allegedly sent tracking numbers out, but never sent the iPhones or electronics.
After numerous complaints, the rapper would tell the consumers that the packages were either lost in the mail, or that he could not refund their money until he located the products, but he would eventually cease communications with the victimized parties.
Willie D faces a 20 year sentence in prison along with a $250,000 dollar fine.
No information was available in regards to Willie Dís bail status.
I read about this awhile ago at rap group Public Enemy's website. This is very sad and Willie D should be ashamed of himself for playing people and taking their money. He's my favorite southern rapper and this is really messed up that he would do something like this especially since he did a couple of songs dissing ignorant blacks.
