The music promoter who wasn't

"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.

  1. It seems his work doesn’t work good for him. He deserves to be in jail.
