The auteur of the "Swipe God Freestyle" gets caught with his pants down.
Detroit rapper Selfmade Kash, best known for his 2018 project Bins & Bitcoins, was just charged with four counts of wire fraud after the Feds caught him bragging about his exploits on the World Wide Web. Click on Detroit is reporting that Selfmade incriminated himself by posting about his "swiping" skills on a public platform.
Law enforcement officials claim Selfmade Kash posted several photos and videos of himself holding large swaths of cash, in an effort to promote his debit fraud side hustle. Court documents obtained by Click on Detroit also indicates that he used hashtags to streamline the whole operation, which is likely where his exploits took a wrong turn.
Before long, the Feds pieced the whole operation, once they found his matching footprints across numerous hashtags, including #Bins, #Bitcoins, #cvv, #dumpswithpin, #ScamLikely, and #swipegoat." As I mentioned before, Selfmade resorted to naming the most important musical project in his catalog after the "skimming" operation. Maybe not the brightest idea in the world, would you say?
