Kanye West’s campaign committee for his 2020 presidential run is claiming it was a victim of fraud.
On Tuesday (May 24), Kanye West’s campaign sent a letter to the Federal Election Commission admitting that money had been unlawfully taken from the campaign’s bank account.
The thief, stole $3,999 and is not part of Kanye West Presidential team. The stolen money was spent on credit card bills.
“It has been determined that the disbursement for $1474 on 12/9/21, $1280 on 2/8/22 and $1245 on 2/22/22 was an external fraud situation,” the letter, which was obtained by XXL, reads. “After investigating, it was determined that an individual not connected with the campaign accessed a campaign account to pay his own credit card.”
In the letter, West’s campaign alleged the money was not able to be recovered. “The bank was unable to reverse the transactions at issue due to the way they were presented for payment,” the letter continues.
