Other Half Of Fraud Pair Confesses

Published November 22, 2012

A man who, along with his Icelandic wife, is accused of having defrauded a wealthy composer out of millions of dollars has confessed to his crime.
The story goes back to 2010, when Vickram Bedi and Helga Ingvarsdóttir extorted composer and heir Roger Davidson of millions of dollars over a period of six years. The extortion started after Bedi was hired with the task of fixing one of Davidson’s computers. Bedi and Helga allegedly told Davidson that there was spyware on the computer, and then expanded upon this. Before it was all over, Davidson paid millions to the couple for protection against everyone from the Russian secret service to Opus Dei.
While Helga confessed to her crime last September, Vickram maintained that Roger knew the whole thing was a sham from the beginning, and that it was all an elaborate case of roleplaying.
LoHud now reports that Vickram has confessed at last to his crime.
While the terms of his plea have not been given, Vickram was facing up to 25 years in prison. Sentencing is currently scheduled for January 22.
