G Herbo Arrested on Fraud and Identity Theft Charges

Earlier this year rapper Fabolous and his domestic partner Emily B gave their blessings to Emily's daughter Taina's relationship with Chicago drill rapper G Herbo [click here if you missed that]. 

In totally unrelated news G Herbo was arrested this week on fraud charges for using stolen credit cards to finance his lavish lifestyle...

 From ABC7 Chicago

Chicago rapper G Herbo and several members of his crew were charged in federal court with using stolen credit card details and IDs to pay for private jets, expensive meals and designer puppies over the last four years.
G Herbo, whose real name is Herbert Wright III, is charged with wire fraud and aggravated identity theft, according to the indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Also charged in the scheme are Joseph Williams, Steven Hayes Jr., Demario Sorrells and Terrence Bender, the 14-count indictment states.
According to the indictment, the conspiracy allegedly started around March 2016, when Wright, 25, and his co-defendants allegedly obtained stolen credit card information from "dark web sites" and co-conspirators.
Wright and his crew would allegedly pass the stolen information to each other through texts, social media messages, emails and phone calls, according to the indictment.
In one such case, Strong, identifying himself as Wright's manager, allegedly contacted a pet company around Nov. 29, 2017, to order two designer puppies for Wright with a stolen credit card, the indictment states.
Bender allegedly used the same stolen credit card to pay for a car service to deliver the puppies to Chicago, according to the indictment.
In another case, Wright allegedly sent a direct message to Strong over Instagram around July 7, 2019, requesting a reservation for a private villa in Jamaica, the indictment states. Strong allegedly made the reservation using stolen payment information, and Wright allegedly stayed at the villa with his associates from July 7 to July 11.
The indictment outlines several other alleged fraudulent payments, including the rental of a Maybach S600 and Bentley CGTC by Sorrells on March 6, 2017.
