G Herbo and various members of his crew have been accused of allegedly conducting a multi-year, million-dollar fraud scheme, and are now facing some serious legal troubles.

Listen to your favorite Hip Hop music now on RADIO.COM.

According to a 14-count indictment filed in Springfield, Massachusetts back in September, officially made public Wednesday, Herbo born Herbert Wright III, has been charged in a federal fraud case conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identify theft. The accusations include using “stolen identifications to charge more than a million dollars’ worth of exotic services over a four-year period,” such as trips on private jets, limousine rides, exotic car rentals including a Bentley CGTC and Maybach S600, a vacation at a villa in Jamaica, and two designer puppies Wright purchased from a dealer in Michigan in 2017.

Herbo's co-defendants include his manager/promoter Antonio "T-Glo" Strong, rapper Joseph "Joe Rodeo" Williams, as well as alleged co-conspirators Steven Hayes Jr., Demario Sorrells, and Terrence Bender.

Per the indictment, the stolen information included credit cardholder’s names, addresses, payment card account numbers, security codes, and expiration dates, which Herbo and his associated used to fly all around the country. The defendants are said to have obtained the credit card information from the dark web and from co-conspirators.

The indictment additionally noted that all the fraudulent transactions were successfully processed. However, most cardholders did end up disputing the charges, which did end up getting reversed, leaving the merchants to deal with the losses.

Other than his recent negative notoriety, at only 25 years old, G Herbo has already made a name for himself in the Chicago drill scene, especially this year with his PTSD album, which includes collabs from heavy-hitters like the late Juice WRLD, Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, and Lil Durk.

Additionally, he appeared on Forbes’ “30 under 30” musicians list, just this week.

As for his newfound legal drama, no additional information has been released on whether G Herbo and the other co-conspirators have agreed to turn themselves in or appear in court on their own merit. So, stay tuned.
