The news today is that Lil Flip was arrested recently on charges of credit card fraud. The charges stem from a purchase of a $671 plane ticket on a credit card that belongs to a Jordan Salinger. Flip turned himself in on Saturday July 21 and was then quickly released on $2,000 bail.
We received an exclusive statement was released from a PR firm representing Lil Flip.
According to Sandy Lal, Lil Flip’s attorney and manager, the charges against Lil Flip are complete nonsense and will quickly disappear. Flip had absolutely no involvement with any sort of credit card fraud. He never personally handles any travel arrangements, that is left to promoters and travel agents. Any wrongdoing of any sort is clearly in THEIR hands. It’s unfortunate that Flip was a victim to this charade and his name has been tied to this situation due to his celebrity status. Nevertheless, we are in the midst of negotiations for various ventures including a multi million dollar relaunch of his Lucky Nites cognac.
According to Lil Flip’s Houston criminal attorney, Stanley Schneider, Lil Flip nor anyone associated with him had any knowledge that a stolen credit card was being used by a person hired to arrange his travel. A complete investigation will easily show that Lil Flip is innocent of all charges and is actually a victim of a scam.
