Lil Flip Arrested in Credit Card Scam

lilflip.jpgHouston MC Lil Flip was arrested in his hometown on Saturday in connection with a credit card scam. According to the Houston Chronicle, the rapper is accused of purchasing a $671.00 Southwest Airlines ticket from Houston to Baltimore on June 8 over the phone about an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off. The ticket was purchased with the credit card of a man named Jordan Salinger, who informed authorities that he did not authorize the purchase. Flip told police that the ticket was bought by a man named Kevin Frank, who in turn denies knowing Flip or making the purchase. The Chronicle reports that the rapper turned himself in to police at the Harris County Courthouse at around 2:30 p.m on Saturday (July 21) and was charged with credit card abuse. The rapper was accompanied by community activist Quanell X, who says the whole thing is a misunderstanding. “It has more to do with people around him, and not the man himself. The man is not a criminal; he’s never been in trouble,” X said. Flip posted $2,000 bond and was released. He Is due in court on Monday (July 23).

    nigga definitely got money..it’s his people who fukked him up.

  • Ya’ll got some Nerve

    Funny shit, we’ll see where this goes. But still, Southwwest? Can’t rent a private plane homie? That last album was worse than spoiled food. Wasn’t it a double disc too?

  • maxamill

    now that’s snitching at it’s best,t.i tried 2 warn you flip fans about this brother.Now you know why they call him flip,when shit get ugly he’ll flip on ya(ha,ha)

  • Dun

    Shouldn’t this fall under the ever-so-popular category of “snitching” since Flip, according to this report, immediately gave up the name of dude who is supposedly responsible?

    If Flip didn’t do this he just needs to plead not guilty and he will be found not guilty. Why does he have to bring other people down with him.

    This is why I can’t stand rap anymore – these dudes are so fake and act and rap all hard about how they’ll murder and how rich they are and how they would never violate the code of the streets (snitching, in this case), and now look at Wesley…

  • Dun

    By the way, b/c Flip posted $2000 bail doesn’t mean he’s still not hard up for cash. You only have to pay 10% of your bail anyway, which means Flip only paid $200. Flip is broke my niggas.

  • Freddy(Vega$)

    Broke ass nigga….CURTIS…..

  • law chick

    dang don’t be hatters!!! lil flip is cool in ma book! he just stopped by the law firm i work at… htown gots the best of everything!!! rappers n lawyers homeboy ain’t gettin in trouble for shit like that… stop hattin on the man!!! ya’ll were bumpin his shit way before t.i. came on the map!

  • http://none tekk

    Some of you may just be hating, for whatever reason.

    Flip has plenty of money. Obviously, it’s a mistake or misunderstand about the airplane ticket.

  • YOUNGIKE

  • jfoxgotraps

    flips album is better than ti vs tip. ur lying to yourself if u think otherwise. “big shit poppin, lil shit stoppin” what is that a song about a trip to the bathroom. ti has swagger, ill give him that, but he cant rap. flip really got that swag, hotter beats, and a much stroger voice. Flip is the KING and i liked ti first.
