According to a new federal complaint, J. Herbo – along with the music promoter and other members of his crew – allegedly conspired to defraud several companies with stolen credit cards over a period of 4 years.
In documents, obtained by TMZ, Federalists allege Herbo specifically conspired to acquire a private villa in Jamaica back in July 2017 by contacting a music promoter Antonio Strong For arranging them and providing a stolen credit card to pay for incidental costs.
What’s more … the Feds claim the rapper was collaborating with Strong to use an alias and a stolen credit card to purchase 2 “designer puppies” from a luxury pet store. The Feds allege that other defendants have also registered a number of private charter aircraft for women, private yacht rentals, exotic car rentals, luxury hotels and rental locations.
Herbo was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit Internet fraud and two counts of aiding and abetting aggravated identity theft. Several charges were brought against Antonio, including phone fraud … and he was arrested again in September, but it is unclear if Herbo has plans to give up.
