Pharrell Williams

Sigismond Segbefia, who is from Ghana but now lives in the US, scammed a South Korean steel company (Dosko Co Ltd) out of $375,000 by claiming he worked with a Japanese talent agency that could help the company book a concert by musician Pharrell Williams, FBI agents in Pennsylvania have said.

The steel company was \”provided with a contract and invoice in the name of Eastern Stars LLC\”, which claimed to be Williams\’ \”legal representative\”, the FBI said.

Segbefia is also accused of sending \”fake documents, emails addresses, and the names of Williams\’ real management team\” before the steel company transferred the money to Eastern Stars in August.

He is due to be in court in May.
