Comedian Eddie Griffin has been slammed with a lawsuit after failing to follow through on a donation pledge.
You can get sued for promising money to charity and not paying????
It's more complicated than that!
In 2007, Griffin said he would give $150,000 to the Jamaica 360 initiative, which "sends African-American university graduates to the Caribbean to help further their careers."
One of the two men who went on the trip provided by the organization is suing the actor, claiming that Griffin tricked him into giving him his credit card information to pay for a hotel room. Not only that but his check bounced!
The icing on the cake is that Griffin's credit card company is also suing him for overdue payments.
The lesson here is: Don't write checks you can't cash!
