I Was Robbed Blind

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.

Kris seems naive and clueless.Not a mean person.Just dazzled by all the glitz,glamor and money.A lot of people would suc***b and be flattered by being "chosen" by someone like Kim.K.Live and learn Kris.Does Scott have a job?Or does he just live off his reality show pay check?Is that why he sticks around?Kourtney doesn't think he is good enough to marry.

This is what happens when a stupid man child gets rich and then gets greedy when someone offers him and insane return on his money. But then, the stupid man child married the queen of porn. I rest my case.

When they were handed the script for their wedding, the divorce was on page 7.

A fool and his money ........... it is so easy to check out someone involved with investments: it is called FINRA (used to be NASD) and all licensed investment people are on there (including suspended, revoked, etc for up to 10 years after disciplinary action). this Hicks guy has no license therefore he cannot legally do investments for people. Duh! Madoff is even listed

Kris came across to me as kind of naive and down to earth compared to anything to do with Kim and her people so this isn't entirely suprising.Frankly I'd be shocked if they last a year.I am wondering whose guest he was since they had to drop 150 people, and I'am assuming some would have been friends or family members of either side while this guy kept his spot along with the 'celebrites' they needed to look good for the camera's.

I KEEP FORGETTING the groom is still a child and will prove it time and again as he settles in with his newly chosen notorious family. What a shame. He was quoted as telling his bride her mother said she would "kill" him if he ever "hurts" her daughter. Shouldn't that have told him something? Once again, he "is still a child."

Andrey Hicks is a con-artist--PLAIN AND SIMPLE, that piece of crap can't get his head around doing anything the right way. He'll hire a high price attorney with his ill-gotten gain and get a disgusting break from the court and the beat will go on. Welcome to America, where you get the verdict you pay for.

What goes around - - just like the con Kim tried to pull listing her brother's DWTS vote phone number as Justin Biebers. When you get in bed with dogs, you wake up with fleas. But can you imagine being the brother, having a sister who made that garbage video and two sisters AND THE MOTHER!!!! who rode that porn tape to celebrate-tard fame. And the stupid way he comes off on the cable show, who the hell would hire him for a real job???

Don't care, can you stop reporting on these nobodies that no one wants to read or hear about? How much are they paying you TMZ to keep their names in the news? Let them get their publicity from porn sites where the entire family belongs.
