An man promoting bogus Mariah Carey concerts has been sentenced to 21 months in jail.
RDA Group employee Antywan Ross conned a New Jersey investor into paying him a $330,000 loan, which he said would be used to plan a series of concerts for the Hero hitmaker in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

However, when Carey’s proposed gigs never took place, and the businessman was never paid back, he launched a legal battle against Ross for the scam.

On Monday a judge ordered Ross to serve 21 months behind bars and pay $325,000 in restitution.

Ross pleaded guilty to wire fraud last year, according to the Associated Press.
