Shady business! Hatem Fahmi arrested for fraud
Egyptian authorities arrested singer Hatem Fahmy on Thursday over allegations that he conned people through the web.
The state news agency reported that four of Fahmy’s fraud victims held him captive in a Nasr City apartment after he took $500 dollars from each of them, claiming it was for an online marketing company.
Security forces arrested both Fahmy and his captivators on Thursday and referred them to prosecution.
Of Egyptian nationality, Fahmi was born in Saudi Arabia and even studied at the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and and Maritime Transport before deciding that his talents lay in his pipes.
