Some young dude took it upon himself to write himself two checks totaling almost $70,000 from Rosie O’Donnell’s production company, KidRo. Ramone Costley, who lives in Queens, got caught after he cashed the checks made out to himself, according to TMZ. The 23-year old is out of work was was using the money to pay bills. Oddly enough, he’s never been employed by KidRo and it’s not clear how he got his hot hands on the checks.
He used $53,000 to pay some bills, and withdrew more than $7,500 in cash. Costley will be in court today, TMZ has learned. The scam was first reported by the New York Post.
I have a feeling Donald Trump is somehow behind this. Since “The Apprentice” has been canceled, I suspect he’s got some extra time on his hands.
