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.

Lots of wealthy, educated people get scammed everyday. If you watch American Greed people are scammed out of millions of dollars by scam artists all the time. To call Kris stupid like he is the only person to ever have gotten scammed is ridiculous. Sounds like you people are on the Kardashian fan train. You are the ones that are stupid to keep watching their shows and buying their brand,making them millions with your hard earned money while they are laughing all the way to the bank. The difference is it is well known that they are frauds and yet you people keep buying into it. you're better off giving your money and time instead of watching their shows to a charity at least it would be used for people who are needy not greedy.
