Reality star allegedly spent $1.5M from federal small business program on jewelry, Rolls-Royce

Eighty-five thousand dollars in jewelry. A 2019 Rolls-Royce Wraith luxury coupe. Forty-thousand dollars in child support payments.

Maurice "Mo" Fayne, a trucking company owner who appears regularly on the reality show "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta," has been charged with using more than $1.5 million in Small Business Administration stimulus funds to enrich himself rather than for paying workers and small business expenses as the program requires.

According to the U.S. attorney's office in the Northern District of Georgia, Fayne is the sole owner of a Georgia corporation called Flame Trucking that received a $2 million bank loan through the SBA's relief package for small businesses, the Paycheck Protection Program.

On May 13 Fayne was arrested and then charged with bank fraud. Prosecutors alleged he used more than $1.5 million on unauthorized purchases including the car, jewelry and child support.

1. Hope they throw the book at him. Atrocious

Taking advantage of this crisis to enrich himself. A rolls royce? really? Put him in the covidiot category. And why the fuck did he owe 40 thousand dollars in child support?

2. At first I was wondering under what law they could've arrested him under for having done this ...

I'm very sure this dude is FAR FAR from only one pulling this kind of shit with that money.

Then the obvious struck me.

Seems like with most people they'd just say 'well, it's a loan and you'll have to pay it back ...'

But nah ...
