Raffle con man Dexter Davis apprehended in Cherry Hill NJ

The man that conned several Hoboken High School students into selling phony raffle tickets for an hourly salary was arrested on Saturday, June 19th in Cherry Hill, NJ.

Dexter Davis reportedly recruited students at Harris Business School in Cherry Hill – who came forward to the police when they suspected the raffle was a scam. Mr. Davis was then tracked down at the local Dunkin’ Donuts and placed under arrest after Cherry Hill police confirmed the warrant with the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office and Hoboken Police.

He was charged with wrongful Impersonation and Theft by Deception.

What has happened to the youth of hoboken? There was a time were this guy would have been laughed at or his chances would have been sold and the kids would have kept the money. And if this guy even tried to do anything he would have advised,in strong terms, to go away.

BREAKING UPDATE: HCSO realizes they have been scammed by the elsuive Dr. DD, but admit in hindsight, they should have seen it coming. On the positive side, they all did agree to be cool and stay in school! 💡

Not the most diversified con man. Dr. Dexter needs some new routines. Or maybe not. Two more “caught in the acts” and he’s going to nose out Buddy V as the edge Halloween costume in the tri-state area this year.

Be cool, stay in school! (and practice sprints)

If he is still on the loose next week, I think I will try to catch the Evil Dr. Is there a price on his head?
