Nelly Used In Taiwanese Scam

A Nelly concert that never happened lead to a legal victory for a Taiwanese production company. The Loop Productions has won a $724,000 lawsuit against the U.S.-based Capitol Connections Agency, after CCA failed to deliver a concert featuring the rapper. The original lawsuit accused CCA of taking more than &40,000 to book Nelly for a show in Taiwan.

"After months of investigation and negotiation with CCA in the hope of receiving a complete refund, the LOOP eventually found out from Nelly's business manager, who denied to have ever heard of CCA," a rep for the LOOP Production said in a statement. "Even with the official denial from Nelly's real management, CCA still refused to refund the deposit.production company based in Taiwan is suing a United States booking agency accused of illegally booking rapper Nelly and keeping tens-of-thousands of dollars in performance fees."

The lawsuit alleges that The Loop has continually booked phony shows and appearances, using celebrity names ranging from Tiger Woods to the Obamas.
