New details emerge in Dammy Krane’s alleged credit card scam


It has been reported in New Miami Times that seven fake credit cards were found in the pockets of Dammy Krane at the time he was arrested at Opa-locka Executive Airport in Miami Dade, Florida on June 1, 2017.


The afropop star has been charged in a nine count felony charge at Miami Dade’s criminal court for credit card forgery and grand theft.  The troubles of Oyindamola Emmanuel Johnson-Hunga, otherwise known as Dammy Krane, began after he allegedly used a bogus card to book a private jet flight to Washington, D.C., police said. It was reported that when the police searched him, they found seven false credit cards in his wallet, one of which he used to pay for his flight.


Agents from the mobile-phone booking app TapJets had called police, when they found that the first card Dammy Krane tendered was fake. The jet company told Miami-Dade Police that Krane and a partner, Chukwuebuka Ilochonwu, had booked a $10,943 trip on a jet from Opa-locka to Washington, D.C.


Two MDPD officers staked out the jet runway until Krane and Ilochonwu showed up. Police searched the pair and found seven cards in Krane’s pants pocket. When authorities checked the cards later, all seven had numbers on the face that didn’t match the numbers on the security strip on the back.


Police learnt afterwards that his co-defendant, Ilochonwu, was out on bond on four other credit card fraud charges.


He had  been arrested in April on felony charges stemming from a case in Miami Beach.


However, Dammy Krane who is now out on bail has come out to wash himself off the arrest mess. He blamed his “agents” and assured his fans that he is innocent of the charges levied against him.


“I do not partake in fraud,” Krane says. “I do not partake in such activities. Agents booked my flights with fraudulent cards.


“My life is all about my music, and that’s what I’m all about.  “I’m sorry I got caught up in this mess.”
