Fake Photos Taken Down After Fans Confront Him for Frauding – He Claims They’re Promo Pics
Once 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days fans noticed the apparent frauding, he stripped them out of his account. To give you some idea of the scope of allegedly purloined posts, after deleting “fake” pics, it took his post count down from many to less than 20 – . He replied saying these were “paid promotions”.
