‘#Fraudbae’ love rat releases rap video – but is accused of stealing the music

A shameless fraudster who tried to cash in on his notoriety by releasing a rap video has had it removed from YouTube amid claims he stole audio.

Love cheat Michael Fehsenfeld earned the nickname ‘Fraudbae’ after he booked a holiday to Paris for one girlfriend using the bank details of another woman.

He was shamed on the internet when the fraud victim, Angel Exford, clocked on to what he was up to and confronted him at the airport.

Undeterred, Fehsenfeld has now attempted to make money off the back of the publicity surrounding the case by releasing a song called ‘Fraudbae’ on YouTube.

Michael Fehsenfeld – who earned the nickname Fraudbae after using one girlfriend’s bank card to pay for a holiday with another – has released a music video in which he raps about his crime

The song’s lyrics describe his crime, including: ‘Took my main ting on a spa day, then I booked Paris and she told me I can’t wait.

‘You think I used my own card? Heeeeey, which square do I use?

‘Big batty female, I don’t want you, I just want your bank detail. Send me your email.’

Fehsenfeld drummed up interest in the track among his 10,000 Instagram and Twitter followers, but within days of it being posted on YouTube it was removed.

YouTuber Angela Nakiyingi says he stole audio from her video without permission and submitted a copyright claim, resulting in the video being taken down.

Ms Nakiyingi says her description of the case on a video she made was played over a beat at the start of the song without her permission.

Fraud victim Angel Exford, 29, met the wannabe star in June and discovered he had stolen her bank details after he used them to book a romantic trip with another woman to Paris.

After using the details to set up a sting with cops before he attempted to fly out for his amorous trip, Fehsenfeld, 26, was hauled before the courts, where he pleaded guilty to fraud.

Angel spoke to Radio1Xtra about her ordeal and slammed the wannabe star for releasing the distasteful video.

She said: ‘I wasn’t surprised he did this. He’s quite a brazen guy. It didn’t bother me at all.

‘I feel like he’s mocking the whole situation. He’s committed a crime. He’s a thief and he’s basically glamorising crime which I don’t think is cute at all.

‘I don’t condone this music video at all. At the same time he’s trying to save face, he’s trying to salvage the situation. This is a coping mechanism for him I think.’

Fehsenfeld was sentenced to 26 weeks in prison for stealing Angel’s card, suspended for two years, along with 150 hours community service.
