Kim Kardashian
's husband claims he was bilked out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by a guy he invited to his wedding ... a guy who's been arrested for allegedly running a $1.7 million investment scam.

Andrey C. Hicks was a guest at Kim and Kris Humphries televised wedding bonanza in August ... and sat right behind the happy couple during the rehearsal dinner.

But TMZ has learned ... after the wedding, Kris learned Andrey was a target in a federal investigation in which he's suspected of raising money for a purported billion dollar hedge fund ... that didn't really exist.

Officials believe Andrey lied to several investors -- including Kris -- telling them, among other things, that he was a Harvard graduate ... when in fact, he was kicked out of the University after 3 semesters for crappy grades. Officials say Andrey only took 1 math class at Harvard ... and got a D-.

Officials claim 27-year-old Hicks stole $1.7 million from various investors ... and sources close to Kris tell us the NBA star accounted for hundreds of thousands of dollars himself.

Hicks was arrested in Canada on Friday and charged with wire fraud. Officials believe he was trying to flee to Switzerland. If convicted, Hicks could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

They're within moments of getting an annulment. It isn't surprising there are shady wedding guests in a wedding no one took serious, anyway. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries make me sick. Try spending some time with the person you intend on spending the rest of your life. If you've already got the horrible judgement to marry a Kardashian after a couple months it doesn't surprise me your wedding guests are s***bags.

He's a big dumb cluck. If he'd marry Kim, he'd hand over his money to some dude with questionable credentials. Honestly, he's a professional victim.

I give this marriage less than six months. She used him for a show. That's all.

Just proves what an idiot he is for not only marrying a human toilet seat whore who likes getting pissed on, but he didn't even bother to check on who he was handing hundreds of thousands of dollars to. He deserves what he gets; kim kun*rashian deserves way more than she'll ever get hammered with...

It just might be that Kim keeps him around to make a deposit (baby) in order to do another show special. Once he makes the deposit and is there by her side in the birthing room, he'll be GONE for good.

Kris is a prop. Nothing more. A promo prop.

Reality Check TMZ. I think this is another OVERHYPED story about the Krapdashians. FACTS so you can determine who is fudging the facts. Andrey Hicks scammed a total of $1.6 million, per the US Attorneys office in its filings from investorsfrom his Cambridge, MA office. Is it logical to assume that the Krapdashians made up over 20 or 30% of this , you referenced "hundreds of thousands of dollars were invested". If anyone invests in a fund and their money is 20-30% of the total invested, they are even dumber than Kim and her sisters really are ( and that is dumb).

So more hollywood hype to stay in the news, which is really pathetic as this guy was a scammer from the get go. We got a call from him 6 months ago and within 5 minutes of doing our initial assessment we knew he was a fake... so ppeople getting taken by this guy derserve to get fleeced as there was NO Substance to him,..... hmm just like the Krapdashians. FAME WHORES and stupid investors...

Well, this is certainly unfortunate, but, let's be honest, . . . Kris Humphries would be likely to get "conned" by a girl scout!!!
GOOD GRIEF!!!

There's a problem here    

Hey greedy? D-I-V-E-R-S-I-F-Y. If you trusted this one person with your big bucks then shame on you. You deserved to lose it.

Remind me again what Kim's talent is... This couple doesn't have a snowballs chance of making it. Look who is guided them along. Her mother rivals Dina Lohan for the worst Mom on the planet. Anyone who would pimp our all of her daughters like that proves that she will do almost anything for money. It's too bad she didn't encourage them to go to college and try to make the world a better place. That certainly wasn't her life plan. Their Dad must be weeping somewhere from the great beyond.
