Nobody can argue that swindling is arguably the worst non-violent crime because it negatively impacts the physical, mental, and financial well-being of the victim. This much is actually clear from “The Con-fluencer,” the sixth episode of season one of Hulu’s “The Age of Influence,” which meticulously details the bizarre life story of career con artist Tracii Show Hutsona. We now have the pertinent information for you if you just want to discover more about her, paying particular attention to her past, her dreams, her crimes, and her current situation.
Who is Tracii Show Hutsona?
Despite being the youngest child of the family and growing up in a fairly typical San Jose, California, home with her parents and siblings, Tracii’s difficulties with theft apparently began when she was a little child. Her older sisters claim that one of her first thefts—or, as she put it, borrowing—was their driver’s licence, which she swiftly followed up by stealing money from their parents secretly. She then pretended to obtain credit cards in other people’s names before telling a car dealership that she was working on a movie and required a nice vehicle that could be featured in it.
But it wasn’t until Tracii, an aspiring actress, started working in business development for a nearby employment agency to make ends meet in August 2005 that she truly started pushing the limits. Before employing them to work for an insurance firm, she really manufactured two fictitious contractors. She then transferred their whole compensation to her and her then-husband Paul Vician’s shared bank accounts. According to court documents, she cheated this company of $168,000 in total, resigned, and then used the same scheme to steal over $500,000 from two other staffing companies.
However, prior to all of this, Tracii allegedly attempted to flee from custody, attempted to pay for rent or buy household items with stolen or forged bank documents, opened a department store credit card in another person’s name and with their Social Security number, fraudulently obtained a passport after the government seized hers, and failed to appear in court for sentencing. She was formally sentenced to a woman’s correctional facility after she was ultimately caught in 2007 on federal counts of identity theft and wire fraud along with her husband.
However, Tracii didn’t seem to care about her prison sentence or the fact that she was under supervised release since by the time late 2015 arrived, she had reverted to her previous behaviour. That’s because Joumana Kidd, the ex-wife of NBA player Jason Kidd, hired the owner of the concierge firm Elite Lux Life as her assistant, but she still stole more than $1 million from her over the course of four years. The newlywed YouTube reality star and potential influencer then shamelessly spent all of the money on personal expenses like her home, devices, meals out, trips, jewellery, and cars.
Where is Tracii Show Hutsona Now?
Tracii was ultimately apprehended on February 17, 2020, but because to covid-19 issues and other legal snags, the previously convicted fraudster didn’t enter a guilty plea until July 2022. For the repeated offence of wire fraud, the 54-year-old was therefore sentenced on February 28, 2023, to 4 years (51 months) in federal custody. As a result, she is currently detained at the medium-security FCI-Phoenix in Arizona, where she is anticipated to stay until October 10, 2026.
U.S. Attorney Damian Williams issued the following statement: “Not long after serving a significant sentence for a prior criminal conviction, Tracii Show Hutsona abused her employer’s confidence by exploiting her employer’s financial information to maintain her own luxurious lifestyle for years. She is back where she started and now faces another significant federal sentence because of her desire to live the high life at the expense of her victim.
