Feds say Charlotte man took $88K from Wells Fargo vault, then flashed cash on Instagram

posted by admin December 14, 2019 0 comments

In April, Wells Fargo handed Arlando Henderson the keys to the vault. Federal prosecutors say he paid the bank back by paying himself.

Handsomely.

According to an indictment unsealed this week in federal court, the Charlotte man helped himself to more than $88,000 in deposits from Wells Fargo customers, then rigged the books in attempt to hide his new income stream. Following an FBI investigation, Henderson was indicted in late November on more than 30 counts of financial institution fraud, theft and embezzlement, and money laundering, among other charges.

What’s more, Henderson couldn’t keep his good fortune to himself. The indictment says Henderson’s chronicled his newfound riches regularly on social media. A check of his Facebook page shows a veritable photo album of Henderson — nickname “AceeyFoez” — living the high life, frequently posing with wads of cash in his hands or strewn on the floor around him.

In another series of photographs, Henderson’s visual aid is a sparkling white Mercedes-Benz. In July, according to the indictment, Henderson drove off the lot at a Northlake dealership in Charlotte with a 2019 Mercedes A2. He put $20,000 down, all in $100 bills. In another photograph, Henderson wears a T-shirt with the initials AWBB. Translation: “Ain’t wit being broke.”

“I make it look easy,” the caption reads, “but this shyt really a PROCESS.”

Prosecutors couldn’t agree more. They say Henderson’s process began in late April, when he was hired to work the cash vault at an undisclosed Wells’ location in Charlotte. Two months later, the indictment shows, he began the first of at least 18 withdrawals — of other people’s money.

He started small. On June 12, he took $446, the indictment alleges. A week later, he pocketed another $200. Two days after that, the take rose to $411. The amount and frequency of the thefts quickly escalated from there: $850 on June 21; $5,465 on July 24; another $5,647 a day later. He welcomed in July with his biggest haul to date — $8,100, prosecutors say.

Henderson eclipsed that amount with an $8,700 theft on July 10, according to the indictment. Five days later he set his one-day high: $13,450.

During that period, according to prosecutors, Henderson made regular deposits through an ATM near work. Most of the transactions involved large amounts of $50 and $100 bills, the indictment says.

All the while, Henderson continued to post on Facebook. A July 14 photograph has him standing next to a car, shoving a handful of bills at the camera. Who carry’s that much cash with them?,” one of his friends responded. “Haven’t you heard of a bank?”

One of Henderson’s last Facebook photographs, with the white Mercedes as a backdrop, was taken in San Diego. The FBI arrested him there on Dec. 4. His California attorney, federal public defender Benjamin Davis, did not respond Friday to an Observer email seeking comment.

Henderson’s arraignment, which will bring him back to Charlotte, has not been scheduled.

Dame Dash Reportedly Arrested For Failing To Pay Child Support

posted by admin November 20, 2019 0 comments

Damon Dash was arrested for failing to pay child support, TMZ reports. The mogul was leaving a New York courtroom on Wednesday, when “about 7 deputies” reportedly “cuffed and processed” him.

From there, Dash was escorted to Brooklyn, where he paid off the rest of what he owed. He had already cleared another warrant earlier in the day. Per TMZ, Dash spent upwards of a million dollars to wipe his debt clean.

See original story below. 

Dame Dash was in the news last year after he publicly confronted filmmaker Lee Daniels over money he was allegedly owed. Ultimately, the two came to a settlement in September following their legal battle over the Richard Pryor biopic, with Daniels reportedly paying Dash somewhere around $1.7 million. However, it would appear the money Dash received from Daniels wasn’t his only financial concern.

In an unnamed ongoing lawsuit, TMZreports that Dash has filed legal documents indicating that he’s broke. He is required to pay $2,400 in the suit, but has claimed he can’t afford it. “My income streams have all been garnished,” Dash reportedly wrote. “It is very difficult to address the mounting bills until I receive some relief from the courts.”

Queens Man Caught Trafficking Nearly $15 Million in Fake Timberlands & UGGs

posted by admin October 29, 2019 0 comments

A Queens man was busted Tuesday for flooding New York with nearly $5 million in phony Timberlands and UGG boots, authorities said.

Since 2011, Hai Long Huang has transported thousands of pairs of the shoes from China to the U.S. via shipping containers, according to a complaint filed against him in Manhattan federal court.

Huang allegedly hawked the counterfeit footwear from tables he set up on the corner of Delancey and Suffolk streets, according to the court papers.

The pairs of shoes typically arrived as “generic,” the documents say, but were then stamped with UGG and Timberland logos in order to sell them for more. Others arrived already bearing the false logos.

“Some of these boots are produced to resemble Timberland and UGG boots in design and color, but significantly, are ‘generic,’” the complaint reads. “That is, these boots are imported into the United States without the inclusion of logos that are trademarks registered with the United States Patent and Trademark office.”

Timberlands typically sell for $140 to $400 pair, while UGGs can cost between $140 and $545, depending on the design.

Feds cracked down on Huang after multiple undercover agents bought boots in bulk from the shoe peddler, who in one August 2019 instance sold a dozen pairs of Timberlands to an undercover for $515.

Huang is expected to appear in Manhattan federal court later Tuesday to face charges of trafficking counterfeit goods.

Almost 15,000 Fake Nike & Jordan Sneakers Seized in L.A

posted by admin October 11, 2019 0 comments

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) has seized 14,806 pairs of fake Nike and Jordan sneakers. If the shoes had been genuine, they would have had a combined retail price of $2,247,680 USD.

The fake sneakers were discovered during an enforcement exam on a shipment that was arriving from China. The sneakers arrived in L.A. in two containers, each of which was declared as “napkins” to avoid detection. According to center import specialists and the trademark owner, the fake sneakers violated protected designs and trademarks for the Off-White™ x Air Jordan 1 as well as the Air Jordan 12, Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 11 and Air Max 97.

The images released by the CBP show a number of fake sneakers, almost all of which are imitations of Virgil Abloh‘s long-running Nike collaboration. This includes the Air Jordan 1 in “UNC,” “Chicago” and “White” colorways.

For authentic Jordans, take an up-close look at Travis Scott’s Air Jordan 6 “Cactus Jack.”

The dancehall and acting community lost a beloved figure in Louie Rankin. Rankin, who is best known for roles in the films Shottas and Belly, has reportedly succumbed to injuries he suffered in Toronto, Canada with early accounts stating he was in a car accident.

Rankin played Teddy Bruckshot in Shottas and Ox in Belly, roles that highlighted Rankin’s menacing looks and gravelly patois. Away from acting, Rankin was also a deejay (rapper in dancehall reggae) who scored a massive hit in the 1990s, “Typewriter,” and referred to himself as the “Orginal Don Dada.”

According to what has been posted previously online, Rankin was born St. Thomas, Jamaica, and raised between Rockfort, Warika Hill and East Kingston. He was still active in music and film in the past years according to his Instagram page, and Rankin looked to be well connected in his adopted home of Toronto as evidenced by the outpouring of love via his public Facebook page.

It appears that Rankin was involved in a crash in Melancthon Township on Highway 89 according to an IHeartRadio report, but details are scant beyond that. His official Twitter page also shared news of the unfortunate passing.
