Boosie is warning them about it...
TMZ reports that Lil Boosie is warning concert venues that a concert scam under his name is going after booking agents with several people being swindled already. TMZ spoke with two victims in Dallas and another in Detroit who all claim they've had over $25,000 taken from them.
One of the victims, LaToya Thomspon, said she found a Boosie booking flier on Instagram and called the number. She was then placed in contact with a man who claimed to be Boosie's brother TQ. She said the man told her to wire him $25,000 to book Boosie for an April concert. However, once the money went through the contact stopped.
The two other victims had the same thing happen to them. One said they booked Boosie for an appearance last wek and he never showed up. "TQ" never responded to phone calls. The contract lists a Giovany Productions as the company. When TMZ attempted to contact the firm, the phone numbers didn't work.
Boosie said that he never gave any company permission to book him. TQ said he was not involved with the bookings and plans to file a report. All bookings must go through TQ. Thompson, meanwhile, has filed a police report herself.
