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.

I just LOVE it when rich f*cks throw their money around to anyone who promises wealth beyond belief. Yeah, it's beyond belief alright. HA HA HA is what I was to say to this "Ralph Kramdenesque" sucker!

Hey Humphries, the more stolen, the less Kardashian can take. That's a bright side.

While society puts actors, actresses, and singing sensations
on pedestals and goes gah-gah over their every word, they constantly prove they are just humans, often believing their own press which makes them think they are all knowing. Sorry Mr. Hicks. Just be thankful you had thousands of dollars to lose and still have plenty left over. Maybe giving some to charity is a better idea that trying to double your money too fast. Worship your money and the chances are you will lose what you have, Ask Nicolas Cage. Go to school. Learn something about business and scams before falling again for a line from some guy you met at a wedding.

Everyone keeps calling Kris stupid for not checking out the guy. This is what con artists do and most do it very well. I guess everyone who invested with Bernie Madoff and all the other shady investment companies are stupid too.

Bad enough being robbed blind, the poor guy will literally go blind if he doesn't treat the syphilis he caught from Kim.

Kris, this is what you call bad karma for making fun of the sanctity of marriage. Act like a good human and this **** won't happen to you.

Its amazing that a porn star can be so famous and make so much money just from doing one movie. She wouldn't have anything if Ray Jay didn't bring out the video camera that day
