Willie D Pleads Guilty to iPhone Scam

Houston MC Willie D of famed rap group the Geto Boys plead guilty last Friday (December 18) to wire fraud.

According to the Associated Press, the rap vet, born William James Dennis, admitted to selling iPhones and other electronics through his bogus company, Texas One Wireless. Investigators claim D has made around $132,000 through the scam, where he would sell the phones online and never deliver the merchandise.

Willie faces up to 20 years in prison once he is sentenced on April 23. He is currently out on bond. —Elan Mancini

    Damn homie, you should of tried to get the Geto Boys and the Legendary Scarface together and went on tour or something. Oh yeah I forgot Scarface retired and we all know he’s good. I’m pretty sure Face Mob had it to give if you really needed it. About 150,000 are you kidding yall could of did a couple of shows and got that right back ya dig. Life after Hip Hop is wack I see if you don’t position yourself early on not only in music but the business side too. Hope Willie D dont get 20 years but damn that was a dumb move especially from a dude from a Legendary group like the Geto Boyz…DAMN

    SMH… How can you NOT expect to get caught with a wire fraud charge?? Hustling is hustling, but this was stupid. The paper trail is too easy to trace back to you.

    And he used his OWN company that’s in his name as a front?

    Those fed counts add up, for real! 20 years? Damn!

    he’s a dumb ass,

    everything online is tracked, they were using a merchant service so all his real details will be on it.

    the money has to go into an account…

    The only way you can do it successfully is to look into countries with different laws & bank accounts & get people with fake details to open multiple bank accounts which you will need to switch every so often.

    but not in that simple ass way.
