Lil Boosie was just released from prison and is having to deal with the reality of being famous again as reports claim the Louisiana rapper has fake tour manager who have been using his name to scam people out of a thousand of dollars.
According to the victims, the fake tour managers took to instagram to post a flier on booking Lil Boosie for an event and taking their money.
We spoke to several of the alleged victims — two in Dallas and one in Detroit — and each of them claim the scam cost them $25,000. Here’s how it happened — one of the alleged victims LaToya Thompson tells us, she came across a Boosie booking flier on Instagram recently and called the phone number. She says she was eventually put in touch with a man claiming to be Boosie’s brother TQ. LaToya tells us, “TQ” instructed her to wire him $25,000 to book Boosie for a concert in April — and as soon as the money went through last week, “TQ” went AWOL. (TMZ)
Boosie took to his Twitter account to address the situation.
Alert: A Company Named Giovany Productions is scamming promoters out of money, while impersonating his manager.
