Scam artist Jahangir Khan was convicted and sentenced to three years and some change in jail last Friday. He confessed to two counts of conspiracy to defraud. According to Express and Star, “He was found to be part of a ‘phishing’ scam, in which he and his co-conspirators scared elderly people into handing over bank details after claiming their accounts had been compromised.” Vanity was Khan’s downfall, as the authorities found numerous pictures of him flashing designer watchers, clothes and bling.
The vanity didn’t stop at the pics. Khan also decided that he had bars and recorded garbage, yet braggadocios raps. He even went so far as to dub himself “da underground’s finest.” To show how bad he was on the mic, West Midlands cops wrecked Khan’s lyrical ability during a press conference.
Khan’s bars (which he probably thought were hot fire) were posted as follows:
“My team call me Jango but dont mistake me for no con, I am da real don
“I get cash neys and I got bare honeys
“I am da undergrounds finest, I get a Roley girls be like hmm hmm
“I put my foot down in my Audi and manz will be like vroom vroom and thats wen i get da pum pum
“Yeah I told u before my names Jango and u drive past in my Lambo
“Me and my boy Kay we been through a lot s**t we lost quite a few boys but replace them we new toys
“We dont cop cars we spend couple of bags on rentals haters see man and they go mental
“Yeah we do bare calling but dont get it twisted we still barling
“Haters call us fakes but dese use to be our boys but ther just snakes
“Ill wak dese manz up and get taken away by da jakes.”
Detective Constable Dan Chappelow humorously translated the lyrics as follows:
My friends call me Jango and make no mistake I’m a real Crime Boss
I have a lot of cash and this attracts lots of ladies
I’m quite good at crime, the ladies like my expensive watches.
I drive at excessive speed in my rented hire car (an Audi) and passers-by admire the car – this also attracts the ladies for sex
I repeat, I am known as Jango – I may drive past you in my Lamborghini.
My friend, Kobir, and I have been through a lot – we’ve lost quite a few friends over our criminal activity but we find new friends
We don’t buy cars, we spend a couple of hundred pounds on hire cars and it makes people jealous
Yes we make lots of phishing calls but don’t be angry at us we’re still cool
Our enemies call us fake, they used to be our friends but they’re just jealous of our criminal success, they’re not to be trusted
I’ll assault these enemies and get arrested by the police.
“You can’t fault his imagination! Khan clearly saw himself as a respected kingpin of the criminal world. In his mind he was ‘da underground’s finest’ who drew respect from men and a magnet for adoring women,” Chappelow said of the scammer. “The truth is that Khan is a coward who spent his time phoning elderly people and tricking them into parting with bank cards and PIN numbers with scare stories that their accounts had been compromised. Courier fraud deliberately targets the most vulnerable people in society, people the fraudsters believe are more likely to fall for their lies. His crimes are a million miles away from the lifestyle depicted in his rap. We had a go at translating his street slang verses… at least we can thank MC Khan for giving us all a good laugh!”
Khan didn’t go down alone. Express & Star details the others convicted and sentenced:
Khan’s co-conspirators were also sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court on Friday after pleading guilty to the same charges.
