THE WORD | CHICAGO RAPPER BANDMAN KEVO IS A FREE MAN, AFTER SERVING 22 MONTHS IN THE FEDS

Bandman Kevo is released from federal prison after serving 22 months for his role in a credit card scam. The rapper, whose real name is Kevin Ford, pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit bank fraud back in 2016.

The Chicago rapper was arrested and charged with bank fraud back in 2014. According to an affidavit, six individuals were accused of obtaining upwards of $639,745 in a bank fraud scheme called cracking cards. The group recruited people to give them debit cards and PIN numbers in exchange for a portion of the profits. Kevo and others would deposit counterfeit checks into the third-party accounts then use fraudulent credit and debit cards to get cash from ATMs.
