50 Cent: Victim of Credit Card-Fraud
Someone’s trying to crack open 50 Cent’s piggy bank. According to New York’s Daily News, Fif has been the victim of credit card-fraud numerous times since 2007.
Sources told the paper that hackers obtained the G-Unit general’s American Express number and have used it to purchase various items across five different cities. Authorities believe the culprit responsible for the crimes may be close enough to 50 to have access to his personal information.
Police have arrested two men in connection to the scam so far, after the suspects tried to pick up two TVs purchased with the Amex numbers, but are not believed to be the masterminds behind the crime.
As of press time, 50 Cent has yet to comment on the incidents. —Elan Mancini
