#Roommates, have you heard the expression, “fake it ’till you make it?” Well one Long Island firm took this expression way too far using fake ties to #JayZ and #RocNation to swindle $70 million dollars out of investors.

According to the NY Post, a credit-card company called Cards International based out of Nassau County, is under federal investigation over alleged fraud according to legal documents.

Apparently, Cardis International told investors they had been hired by Roc Nation for their bill processing services which were not only untrue, but also used a Ponzi scheme to continuously lure clients and take their money.

One investor by the name of Dvora Weinstein, insists the co-founder of Cardis International, Aaron Fischman scammed her out of a $300K investment during a time when the company was nearly $3 million dollars in debt.
