From 3 Doors Down to Nickelback to identity theft, Daniel Adair (current Nickelback drummer) was recently a victim of fraud.
On February 28, Lee Howard Koenig was arrested and charged with two felonies for attempting to impersonate Adair by using his credit card to do a little online shopping.
Adair decided to take matters into his own hands and expose this infamous fraudster after he was contacted by his band representative asking him to confirm the payment of tens of thousands of dollars.
The shipping address used to make the $25,000 drumset buy did not match Adair’s. This is when he had police trace the online purchase via IP address to Florida man Lee Howard Koenig’s residence.
“One of the people in his group thought it was out of the ordinary when they were getting contacted to confirm the order”, Said Detective Paul Griffith of the Port St Lucie PD.
This isn’t Koenig’s first strike as he was prosecuted for fraud in 2009 for falsely collecting $78,000 for a non-existent society benefit concert, reports Radio.
