50 Cent is a Repeat Credit Card Fraud Victim

It’s no secret that Hip-Hop superstar 50 Cent has substantial money in the bank, so when two men allegedly tried to make a few unauthorized purchases using the mogul’s American Express account, the pair likely thought they hit the jackpot.

Not so, according to a report recently put out by the New York Daily News. Apparently, thieves tried to use 50’s account information to order two Sony flat-screen televisions worth about $1,000 each.

The owner of the store where the fraudulent purchases were being made grew a bit suspicious and did not deliver the items. When the would-be robbers inquired as to why they hadn’t received their ill-gotten goods, the store owner told them over the phone that they could come pick them up.

The two men arrived in a rented car to pick up the televisions, and were promptly arrested, though a source reports that they were not the “masterminds behind the attempted crime.”

This is at least the fifth time since 2007 that someone has tried to make an unauthorized purchase using 50’s information.

LMAO at the owner going all “Law & Order” on these fools!
