Chicago Rapper Bandman Kevo Says He’s Not Facing 30 Years In Bank Fraud Case

Chiraq rapper Bandman Kevo, who is expected to plead guilty in a bank fraud scheme, says he’s not facing 30 years in the case.

Kevo told FakeShoreDrive this is his first offense and that he has no prior criminal record. He further pointed out that white-collar criminals who’ve stolen millions of dollars don’t even see that kind of time.

Kevo, born Kevin Ford, 27, and alleged associate Cortez Stevens, 25, will both plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, according to plea agreements filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Hammond, IN.

The bank fraud scheme Kevo was allegedly involved in stretched from Illinois to Indiana and generated about $639,746, according to the NWI Times.

Cracking cards reportedly involves scammers placing stolen or counterfeit checks in bank accounts belonging to other people. Scammers then borrow the cardholder’s debit card and PIN number to withdraw money from the account before the bank learns the check is fake.

Federal officials say the group would reel in cash-strapped people through social media, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Kevo and Stevens forfeited a 2004 Audi and a 2006 Maserati to the federal government in order to pay $141,919 in restitution.

Kevo is a burgeoning Hip Hop artist who has collaborated with some of the genre’s hottest artists that included King Louie, Chief Keef and Soulja Boy.
