After “Wipe Me Down” rapper Lil’ Boosie was released from a Louisiana prison just a week ago, the scammers wasted no time tricking people to buy fake tickets to Boosie concerts that don’t yet exist. Booking agents across the country have been affected by the scam, costing them all $25,000 each. Find out the deets below!
LaToya Thomas told TMZ that she came across a Boosie concert flyer on Instagram and called the number. The man she spoke to claimed to be Boosie’s brother “TQ.” He apparently told LaToya to wire him $25,000 to book Boosie for a concert in April. As soon as the money hit the account, TQ was MIA with all of the dough. SMH! Boosie commented on the situation, saying neither he or his brother TQ (the real TQ) ever gave anyone permission to book him for any appearances or shows. Similar stories came from a few other booking agents, claiming they were all got for $25 thou. YIKES! Looks like the only thing these scammers were “Wiping Down” were these victim’s pockets!
