ORIGINAL POST: G Herbo is one of five people who have been charged in a federal fraud case in Massachusetts.

According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, Herbo, real name Herbert Wright III, and several of his associates have been charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identify theft. It’s alleged that Herbo, along with his music promoter and other members of his crew used stolen identifications to charge more than a million dollars worth of exotic services over a four-year period.

The indictment claims the services consisted of trips on private jets, limousine rides, exotic car rentals, vacations and the purchases of two designer puppies. Herbo and his crew also allegedly used stolen identities to pay for trips to Miami, Texas, New York, New Jersey and California.

The scheme reportedly revolved around the defendants’ use of stolen credit cards and personal identities obtained from the “dark web.”

While several defendants have already surrendered themselves to authorities, it is unclear at this moments whether Herbo has made similar arrangements
