Toure Edward Williams conned me into investing and loaning him $3900. The breakdown is as follows:

1/14/2011 - $500: Investment for Kobe Bryant after party for footprint at Mann's Chinese Theater. $1000 of interest to be paid as agreed. I later learned that Toure was not in charge of this event and had no affiliation with it.

1/21/2011 - $1900: Radio promotion/tour. He was supposed to get radio airplay for the song of an artist I was managing as well as secure him paid performances as openers for major artists touring. I had later learned that he had no significant ties to any radio promotion or musical tours and as such he was not using my money for this.

3/15/2011 - $1500: Loan for his mother. I doubt this money was for her. He was supposed to pay this back the following Monday and never did. That is when I started questioning him.

I had not questioned the January loans initially because of our friendship and I trusted that he would honor the oral contracts we entered into. He never did deliver receipts or written contracts as promised afterwords.

I later learned that everything I had been told was a lie to con me into giving him money. I was also informed that I am not the first person he did this too and he makes some of his money off of conning and defrauding innocent people into giving him money.

Toure goes around presenting himself as a wealthy businessman who has mansions in Brentwood, Bel Air, northern California and a Tribeca loft in NYC. He also says that he flies private on a G3 jet he owns. He also claims to own a 2003 Maybach 62S, 2011 Range Rover and 2010 Mercedes S550. This is all a lie to defraud you out of money. He usually lives either in hotels or with friends. Neither I nor any of his close friends have ever seen any of his cars nor been to any of his houses.

He attempted to scam me out of 2,500

AUTHOR: YouCantSchoolMe - (USA)

 he attempted to scam me for a couple grand. Luckily I contacted the people he claimed to have ties to and they denied knowing who he was or any affiliation with him which stopped me from the investment. However I do have information on him.

294 days ago by CtdcbossHe conned us too. We must find this guys as well.

191 days ago by CecilBWrightI was also conned out of money from this guy and his friends (approximately $3, 000). He poses as some sort of businessman who invested in ethynal refineries in Brazil and has made it big. 

Here are a few signs that I should have noticed from the beginning:

1) Despite saying that he is a billionaire, he never once stepped up to pay for anything. 
2) In the year that we were doing business, he changed his email address (which were from gmail or mac) twice. 
3) He uses a lot of LLC's and Corporations to make himself sound legitimate. 

This guy is a total fraud. I hope he gets caught and gets what's coming to him.

176 days ago by Cecilwhat we need to do to help others avoid being scammed by this low-life is to post it simply as "Toure Williams", and not as "Toure Edward Williams". The first thing anyone with half a brain would do if Toure called with one of his enticing deals or offers would be to google this supposed billionaire to find out more about him. I tried googling "Toure Wlilliams" a year ago and nothing came up. It was not until a full year later that I found this website and another one at ripoffreport.

Toure Williams

AUTHOR: J - (United States of America)

I can agree with and attest to the Ripoff Report above. I am a former friend of Toure Williams. Toure Williams used to borrow money from me all the time while we were friends, but Toure Williams never paid it back.

In April 2009, Toure Williams was arrested in Fulton County, Georgia for violating Georgia Code Section 16-8-3 by committing theft by deception ( Toure Williams committing this crime is a public record and more information, as well as his mug shot, can be viewed at Toure Williams has also been arrested in the past numerous times for drunk driving and had his drivers license suspended as a result.

There is a clear pattern as to Toure Williams' behavior as it relates to fraud and deception and I hope my reply and that of the original poster prevent future potential victims from becoming victims of Toure Williams.
