Fraud Poses as Drummer for Elton John to get Media Attention in Sao Paulo

Musician Jose Eduardo Carrara made a drastic attempt to get media attention in the Sao Paulo area earlier this week, claiming to police that he had been robbed at gunpoint by gang members of his possessions and around 6,000 pounds.  While telling the officers of his unfortunate predicament, Carrara was making out to be Elton John’s drummer Charlie Morgan.  After he stated he was from Liverpool, Brazil made calls to confirm this statement and found that Carrara had made similar reports on 3 separate occasions in the area prior to this one in an attempt to grab media attention and get more gigs.  The full story is in the article below.
