"But guys, I have on my Lil Wayne hat!"
A man in New Jersey, 38-year-old Yusuf Nadir, was pulling a scam. He impersonated well-known concert promoters over the phone and called music venues to book concerts. He promised to bring in big musical acts, like rapper Lil Wayne, and said he just needed a down payment to secure the artist. The money went into his own account.
He must have been good at his con job, because he stole at least $100,000 before he was caught.
He's in jail for theft by deception, criminal impersonations and writing bad checks.
