Chicago Rapper G Herbo And 5 Others Facing Charges For Stealing Credit Card Info To Fund Luxury Vacations, Flights, And Designer Dogs
Chicago Rapper G Herbo (real name Herbert Randall Wright III) is facing some legal troubles.
On Wednesday, December 2nd, an indictment was unsealed that revealed 25-year-old G Herbo along with five others were hit with charges. Reportedly, the men used stolen credit card info to fund luxury vacations and a villa in Jamaica, charter private jets, lease foreign cars, and get designer puppies among other activities.
The actual indictment was issued by a grand jury on Oct. 15 in Massachusetts in the U.S. District Court.
G Herbo is facing charges of wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and aggravated identity theft. Herbo, along with Antonio Strong, Joseph Williams, Stephen Hayes Jr., Demario Sorrells, and Terrence Bender will have to appear in court.
So how did they get the rapper and others get the stolen info (including credit cardholder’s names, addresses, account numbers, and security codes)? Court records allege from the dark web. While all the charges went through, eventually the owners ended up disputing the charges, and the payments were left to merchants.
Recently Herbo made the Forbes 30 under 30 list for entrepreneurs, business owners, and more. He has not given any comment regarding the charges.
