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.

This looks like the same guy sitting next to Hank Baskett when he was picking out that yellow diamond for Kendra last episode. I wonder if he's friends with several NBA players?

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

So true..lol but what's REALLY amazing is Ray J's career is basically the same now as it was then. Dude didn't get ANYTHING in return. LMAO.

He doesn't exactly look like a rocket scientist, or a guy who can even spell the words rocket or scientist. No surprise he doesn't know how to invest his money. Or find a bride who isn't being studied by the Centers for Disease Conrol.

These dudes cling to a life they will never have by ripping people off, but the funny part is he got some loot and still got an ugly bitch with him (to the banker guys left). Being the man is in your soul. You cant steal greatness and thats where these hollywood leaches got it wrong

Looks like Kris is making it look like he got ripped off when it was mostly Kim as well. TMZ reported a stern faced Kim several nights ago at dinner. Looks and smells like Kim may have lost more money than Kris and that's why she was so upset. Smart they are not. Stupid is as stupid does.

well Lurch doesn't have anything to worry about, he can keep on taking money from his wh0re wife, plus he got paid 20k per episode filming that NY show. But why couldn't this have happened to kim or her pimpmom? lol
