Actor Arrested in Harvey Weinstein Extortion Plot

Posted: August 23rd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Actor Arrested in Harvey Weinstein Extortion PlotSubmit Comment
Vivek Shah, who had tiny roles in "The Dark Knight" and "Our Family Wedding," targeted Harvey Weinstein in a plan to extort $13 million from the producer. The 25-year-old actor sent a letter to Weinstein, telling him that if he doesn't wire the money to an offshore account, his family members would be harmed.

Shah was arrested at his Chicago family home two days before he was set to return to Los Angeles, where he was scheduled for training in handgun shooting. The training was not movie-related.

Surveillance video captured Shah purchasing debit cards and postage stamps, both of which tied him to the letters. He now faces 20 years in prison if convicted.

@Porn - nice one.

Using letters to try extorting $13 mil from Weinstein or else family members will be harmed? Sounds like an everyday business transaction in Hollywood to secure movie right contracts. Big time f*cker like Weinstein has been around for a long time and probably use to eating little pricks like Shah for breakfast. Sausage and scrambled balls.

I wonder why $13mil? And not 10 or 15?

$3 to blow now, and $10 for retirement?

Dumb sh*t.

"I wonder why $13mil? And not 10 or 15?"

It's roughly 10mil in Euro.

In the case of the John Benet Ramsey kidnapping, a question was asked: why the odd amount? Turns out, the 'odd' amount was 1 mil in pesos, leading some investigators to think the kidnapper planned on escaping to Mexico.

Same situation here, perhaps.
