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.

Kim Kardashian and the rest of the Kardashians are scared that Humphries may just get the annulment of the marriage scam. Fraud.

Kim Kardashian has no problem commenting how she didn't like Humphries even touching her. Of course this is all after the fake wedding and marriage. Pre-nup was already set up.


His family being trashed by Kim and the Kardashians. Kim and the Kardashians don't want an annulment. That would be mean everything null and void. Just like it never happened. They don't want the annulment. The fake marriage is annuled...Humphries can tell all about the Kardashians. Not what they want.

As that old saying goes there's a sucker born every minute. First Andrey Hicks and then Kim K. Kris, are you really that dumb or did someone drop you on your head as a child?

I see he's always been gullible.

Hey Kris, I have a bridge to nowhere I'd like you to invest in.

Well, Kim could help him out with his loss if she would sell the ring that was given to her when they became engaged. Mrs. Jenner said she think Kim should keep the ring because she hates "an Indian giver". I had always thought the person who ends everything should not be the one who keeps the ring.

Knowing the "gimme, gimme" mentality of the Kardashians (how do I know? They have put themselves out there on TV, so it's ok for me to judge them by what I see.)
Kris J. either made sure that was put in the prenup, or they will take it to court. Kim has NO intention of parting with that rock. Just like she has NO intention of returning any of her weddings gifts. Shame, shame!!

Well, I think we all know, it's quite clear, how childish, naive, clueless and unsophisticated as a newborn rabbit Kris is. He can be duped into anything. Sad.. but I hope he's learned lessons now. My God has he been kept tight under Mother's breasts for this long?

This makes perfect sense, as they only had room at the wedding for close family and friends. I smell a rat!

You know what's sad about this whole situation? Kim and Kris obviously didn't have any close, legitimate friends to support them at their wedding rehearsal. If some hedge-fund-phoney is the best they could do, they're both going to be very lonely.

Would be very interesting if Kim was in on the scam and duped him about this too. Ka-ching!

I don't see this man as stupid. I see him as one of very few people that are very honest and trusting and think others are the same. Too bad he's fallen prey to the like of the Kardashians and this scammer of a friend! I truly hope this makes him wiser but doesn't make him into a hard, uncaring, untrusting person.
