Kevin Hart’s personal shopper has defrauded the ‘Jumanji’ actor out of over 1 million dollars in bogus purchases for himself.
Dylan Syer was in a NYC court Wednesday for his arraignment for grand larceny and 9 other counts … after he allegedly used Kevin’s credit card info to launder cash into his own account in order to purchase items for himself!
Queens County D.A. Melinda Katz says Syer built trust with Kevin, when he was hired in 2015, by making legit, authorized purchases on behalf of Kevin. However, Katz claims Syer started siphoning off hundreds of thousands from Hart’s credit cards, depositing the money into his own bank account.
Syer allegedly spent lavishly on himself. All in all, prosecutors say Kevin was defrauded out of nearly $1.2 mil over nearly 2 years. Much of that was allegedly used to buy pricey jewellery, watches, art, high-end collectibles and luxury handbags.
The D.A. says Syer’s haul included 5 Patek Philippe watches worth more than $400k, a Sam Friedman painting, at least 16 Bearbrick collectible dolls, 5 KAWS collectible dolls and 2 Louis Vuitton bags.
Prosecutors are trying to seize all the merch Syer allegedly purchased, so they can get back Kevin’s money.
