Sam Benson, who goes by the name Blac Youngsta was arrested on Friday, January 8, 2015, outside an Atlanta, GA Wells Fargo Bank after being confused with a check fraudster.

The rapper was confronted by officers with their guns drawn after Wells Fargo confused the rapper for a wanted fraudster cashing in on fraudulent checks.

We are not certain how Wells Fargo could have made such a mistake.  The rapper did not cash a check instead he withdrew money from his own account.

Despite the fact that Wells Fargo allowed the rapper to withdraw the money they called the police on him with the belief that he was a fraudster.  The reminded us of the recent false reports that have been made leading to the loss of innocent lives.

The rapper signed to Yo Gotti’s CMG record label in 2015, one year after Blac Youngsta’s ‘Heavy’ album was released.
