Yung Joc, whose real name is Jasiel Amon Tucker Robinson, accidentally sent $1,800 to the wrong person on Zelle and when he asked the recipient to send the money back, he never received a response.
Yesterday (Oct. 19), the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star took to his Instagram account and shared a screenshot of the text messages he sent the person. “Hi can you please return the $1800 that I mistakenly sent to your account via Zelle,” the first text message reads. “I don’t know you nor do you know me. Please do the right thing. God has a bigger blessing for you.”
He added, “I know you’ve blocked my number and that’s ok I just need the $1800 that was sent to your account via Zelle.”
In the caption of the post, Yung Joc asked his followers to contact the number he sent the money to, and get the person to return the funds to him. “So I sent them a Zelle by mistake and they won’t return my money,” he wrote. “Can y’all please call [or] text them and ask them to return my lil change?”
During the COVID pandemic in January 2020, the “It’s Going Down” rapper was spotted driving for a ride-sharing app. According to TMZ, the College Park native was not ashamed of driving an Uber on the side to make some extra money. Apparently, he was challenging himself to do something new and thought it was a “dope idea.”
“You have to show them what humility is and you’re not too big to do the right thing by making an honest living,” he told the media outlet. “I think that’s why a lot of kids, and even adults, go astray. Because they’re too ashamed, they’re too prideful to do something.”
He added that Snoop Dogg was one of many that backed up his choice. “The most phenomenal part of this experience from this going viral is the amount of support,” he continued. “I just realize that maybe people are beginning to be a little more mature.”
