There are many famous people who have had to serve time in jail at some point in their life, including American rapper Maurice Mo Fayne. A guilty plea to abusing Paycheck Protection Program loans resulted in a 17-and-a-half-year sentence.

After being arrested for bank fraud and wire fraud connected to a prominent Ponzi scheme in May 2020, the 38-year-old rapper Maurice Mo Fayne was charged with making false claims on his application for a loan through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

Six charges of bank and wire fraud were brought against him after he lived a lavish lifestyle with money from PPP amid an epidemic.

PPP loan application for $3.7 million (GHc22.148.689.50) was submitted by Mo Fayne with fraudulent claims of 107 workers and $1.49 million in monthly salary, according to Yahoo.com.

$85k (GHc508,725) worth of jewellery, a $136,000 (GHc813,960) Rolls-Royce, and $40,000 in past-due child support, as well as $90k (GHc538,650) to start a new business, were some of the purchases Fayne made with the money.
