Rapper Lures Followers Into Credit Scam

Ashley Bautista, aka Young Ash, is a 22 year old rapper from the Bronx. The young rapper was trying to recruit her followers to participate in a money scam, persuading them by flashing wads of money on her social media. “If you from the Bronx with an active chase account and wanna make money the same day no scams you’ll see exactly what’s going on,” she's promoted.

She was taken into Manhattan Supreme Court in cuffs on Wednesday. She pleaded not guilty to grand larceny, but has been accused of allegedly using victims’ personal information, forged checks and ATM cards to withdraw cash from bank accounts. Bautista was released without bail.
