Two Men Charged With Felonies After Staging Fake Rihanna Concerts
Two men are behind bars for allegedly raking in $2 million dollars by staging fake Rihanna concerts.
TMZ reports that Sylvester Vincent Carroll and Meceo McEaddy are being hit with two felony charges: grand larceny and scheming to defraud in the first degree. They’re accused of posing as the pop star’s managers and duping promoters into forking over dough to promote the concerts.
Other artist’s such as Lady Gaga and Ke$ha were also used in the scheme, which started back in 2010.
According to the Manhattan D.A., Carroll and McEaddy traveled far and wide to pull off the scam — from Brazil and Mexico to even Taiwan.
What did they do with the money? The con men spent the funds on cars, hotel, jewelry and restaurants. Well, at least they enjoyed it while they had it because these two are likely going away for awhile.
