Yeezy model and Bad Girls Club alum Shannade Clermont was arrested on Wednesday in NY after she racked up $20,000 in charges on a dead man's debit card, according to authorities. He reportedly died of an overdose of cocaine, fentanyl and levamisole, an anti-worming drug.
The US Attorney's Office states that the woman used the money to pay her telephone bills, her rent, as well as flights, clothing, and other random items online.
Clermont faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, a maximum sentence of 15 years for one count of access device fraud, and a minimum two-year sentence for a single count of aggravated identity theft. Authorities said the two debit cards from which Clermont allegedly took the information were found in his wallet at the apartment.
According to court docs, the late man sent Shannade a text that read, "What do you want to do?' to which she wrote, 'I want to see you for the amount we agreed on".
"Let's do $400", the government claims the victim said. You'll have fun. What type of booze do you like?
The 24-year-old allegedly used a dead man's debit card after meeting him for a $400 "prosecution date", the U.S. Attorney's Office stated Wednesday.
Since then, the sisters have kept up with their self-proclaimed "bad" reputation, appearing in Future's music video for "Real Sisters" where they rob and seduce men.
"During the course of that investigation, law enforcement learned that Clermont visited the Victim for a prostitution date at the Victim Apartment the previous evening (January 31, 2017), and used the Victim's debit card information to make or attempt to make more than $20,000 in fraudulent purchases during the months following the Victim's death", authorities said.
"As alleged, Shannade Clermont, a former cast member of the 'Bad Girls Club, ' lived up to her reality series reputation", U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in the statement. "Thanks to the skilled investigative work of the NYPD, Clermont's new reality is federal prosecution for her alleged nefarious conduct".
The criminal complaint said she appeared on the Oxygen network's reality series Bad Girls Club in 2015 along with her twin sister Shannon and amassed a large social media following.
INSIDER reached out to the listed representative for Shannon and Shannade Clermont but did not immediately receive a response.
Shannade and her twin Shannon were featured in West's Yeezy Season 6 campaign, they were also in a campaign he did this past June and even posed as Kardashian-West lookalikes.
