Kris Humphries
helped federal prosecutors get a grand jury indictment against a wedding guest who ripped him off to the tune of $617,000.

Andrey C. Hicks allegedly bilked more than $2.5 million from a total of 10 investors by telling them he was pumping their cash into a billion dollar hedge fund ... that didn't exist.

According to the indictment, Hicks instead blew wads of cash on a 2011 black Range Rover, 12 luxury watches, one diamond engagement ring, two pairs of earrings, another gold ring with diamonds, one pair of silver cuff links ... and one silver men's ring.

The docs show Humphries anted up his $617 grand to the alleged scammer on April 5. Four months later Hicks was sitting right behind Kris and Kim Kardashian at the rehearsal dinner for their massive wedding.

 A rep tells TMZ Kris "has been working with law enforcement authorities" ... and doesn't want to comment further until the case is resolved.

Kris, dude, how many different ways are you gonna be suckered in one year? Hoo hah!


When your buddies told you "Marry a Kardashian, you'll really get screwed", well, they weren't talking about sex!

I'm starting to feel bad for this guy...EVERYONE is taking advantage of him. On second thought, you'd think he'd be able to put 2 and 2 together...
Now I wonder how long it'll be before TMZ reveals this guy has some connection to Kim?

This story says two things about Kris: he's dumber than a doorknob and he's a greedy bitch.

That guy looks like a smooth talking sociopath. When he hooked up with Kris he envisioned a big SUCKER. Let's see how slick this guy is... maybe he'll hook up with one of those Jewish Californian attorneys that's connected who will CUT A DEAL [for a price] and we'll see another [2]criminal[s] walk.

Kris, if you married Kim, you're a walking target for scam artist. You're sucker if you believed Kim, and this guy, you'll believe anyone. Oi, just play ball and make wiser investments in the future. Seems this all happened at the time during his marriage. Blind is all I can say.

None of this matters. This guy is a cave man idiot that hooked up with an even more worthless person than he is, so I don't feel bad for him anymore. He knew what the hell he was getting into with the Klan, let's just be honest. NO MORE KARDASHIANS!

Where are his financial advisors who are supposed to protect him? Probably inbred from the same gene pool as his pre marital counselors.

Just plain greedy. I can hold my breath longer than his IQ.
