Cops: Shyster Shtole Sheckler's Shekels

11/13/2009 6:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pro skater and MTV reality star Ryan Sheckler just found out he was missing $365,000 -- and cops think he may have been stabbed in the back big time.

Cops just arrested Matthew Mercuro today -- who was the Chief Financial Officer for Ryan's two companies -- and charged him with embezzling more than $365,000 from the 19-year-old skater ... which amounts to two felony counts of grand theft.

If convicted, Mercuro could spend more than 6 years in state prison.

You and your body are getting along better than usual -- it's time to treat it to something nice! That means exercise or some super-healthy food, and you should get a boost immediately afterward!

Not all skaters are punks, I hope this CFO goes to jail. He could have made so much representing Ryan over the next 20 years but he hade to F it up from the beginning.

Sheckler is the next Tony Hawk.

I am so disgusted hearing this. Even a 19 year old skater gets ripped off by people they think they can trust. It just cuts the wound deeper with MJ, because all the evil greedy people in the world think they have a cash cow. Eventually, everyone stops trusting everyone, and like MJ-you survive and cope anyway you can find. An evil world turned a beautiful soul like MJ into what fatefully took him off this earth. Satin is running rampant and we are all becoming victims. I can only pray for all of our souls.

Sadly even family will rip you off. I hate to use her as an example but Oprah once said YEARS ago, that a friend told her no matter how big or rich you get always stay involved in your finances. Have regular financial meetings with accountants and lawyers, and make them explain where every penny is going and why, and above all sign all checks yourself, never give someone else the right to sign checks in your name. Not sure she still abides by all that but it sure sounds like good advice for someone who is not used to handling alot of money and keeping others from taking advantage of you.

Some people who were involved in his TV show claim that he was not only managing his money but was also his homosexual lover and was upset because Ryan was more interested in fame and skateboards then him.
