Geto Boys' William "Willie D" Dennis was reportedly arrested last night (May 13) at Bush Intercontinental Airport over an alleged eBay scam involving iPhones.

 He was taken in by authorities late Wednesday evening.

William James Dennis, also known as "Willie D" is charged with wire fraud stemming from his alleged sales of Apple iPhones through a company known as Texas One Wireless. Dennis was arrested at Bush Intercontinental Airport Wednesday after returning from a trip overseas. If convicted, Dennis could be sentenced to up to 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine, followed by up to five years of supervised release and restitution to the victims. (KTRK News)
Willie faces various charges stemming from an alleged scam which began last fall.

Beginning in September 2008, Dennis, posing as an electronics salesman, used eBay to establish his credibility with international buyers. Once a buyer showed interest, Dennis allegedly directed them outside of eBay to conduct sales via e-mail. Numerous foreign individuals placed orders with Dennis for iPhones and other electronics. Dennis required payment to be electronically transferred to his bank account and once the transaction was confirmed, Dennis would send tracking numbers for packages that were never shipped. When the buyers complained about not receiving their purchases, Dennis allegedly claimed he had filed a complaint with the U.S. Postal Service or hired carrier and that he could not refund their money until he knew where his goods were. Eventually, Dennis would cease communication with the victimized parties. (Houston Press)

So D gets 20 for cellular scams but T.I. gets only a year for buying a hydrogen bomb and vials of anthrax? Something isn't right.

Willie D was indicted Tuesday (June 9) afternoon.

Rapper William Dennis, aka Willie D, was indicted Tuesday by a grand jury on 15 counts of wire fraud. The investigation leading to Dennis' arrest came after one of the overseas purchasers filed a complaint with law enforcement authorities. Wire fraud carries a maximum punishment, upon conviction, of 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine. Dennis is currently on bond pending trial in this case which is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Sherri L. Zack. (MyFox News)

He was initially taken in by authorities last month.
