Kelsey Grammer Sued Over Online Scam
Kelsey Grammer has been sued by Lydia Cornell for allegedly roping her into Staropoly.com, a web-based Ponzi scheme.
Grammer, meanwhile, has attempted to distance himself from the venture, claiming he lost $1 million to the online ruse himself. According to the Daily Mail, the man behind the scheme, Alex Varonos, allegedly used images of Grammer in promotional materials to attract other celebrities into the scheme.
A suit originally filed by Grammer in August of 2011 against the site labeled it “an illegal pyramid scheme operation” created “in order to commit credit card fraud, with no monetary return to its associates.”
The New York Post reported that the site’s parent company, TODHD, is under investigation by the FBI.
