Rapper Bandman Kevo was yesterday sentenced to at least 22 months in Federal prison for the $639,000 ‘card cracking’ credit card scam he was arrested for back in 2014.
The 27 year-old Chicago rapper was charged and pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud in January of this year, and announced the news of sentencing via his social network pages and a press release yesterday. He posted:

Authorities charged Kevo and 28 other defendants in federal court for a banking scheme that allegedly crossed state borders. According to the original affidavit, Kevo and 28 other men stole around $640,000 by recruiting bank customers via social media to share their debit card information for a portion of the profits. The men then allegedly deposited counterfeit checks into the accounts and withdrew money from ATM’s.
As part of his guilty plea, Kevo and his alleged co-conspirator agreed to pay back $141,919 and hand over other items including a 2004 Audi and a 2006 Maserati to the Federal Government.
