 So perhaps John Mayer's music
may sound a little more authentic
    now he is being sued over
allegedly receiving money from a
fraudulent investment operation.

As much as $465,000 was handed
over to the star's representatives
    by a Ponzi scheme ran by
  notorious criminal Frederick
           Darren Berg.

He was given an 18-year-sentance
 in February for duping investors
 out of more than $100m through
     his investment company.
  According to TMZ, Mayer was drawn into the frame
when the trustees charged with recovering as much of
the stolen money as possible decided to sue those who
                    had benefited.

New legal documents show he is one of the people who
  received dirty money after a booking agency was
            allegedly paid by his company.

It is claimed Grabow & Associates, and their client and
  Mayer by extension, are in possession of as much as
                       $465,000.
  The agency specialises in booking entertainment for
 corporate and private events, and set up the Your Body
is Wonderland singer with a money-spinning appearance
                        in 2008.

    Mayer's lawyer said: 'John Mayer performed at a
 corporate event in 2008 and was paid for his services.
'The opportunity was brought to John through his talent
                     agency, CAA.‘

      A ruling has yet to be delivered on the case.

 Frederick Darren Berg was sentenced to
18 years in prison for defrauding hundreds
  of investors of more than $100 million
      through the Meridian Mortgage
   investment funds he ran for nearly a
                  decade.
U.S. District Court Judge Richard
A. Jones imposed the prison term
  recommended by Berg's plea
            agreement.
 He told him: 'I'm not sure how you live
 with yourself, with the damage that you
                 caused.‘

     Judge Jones noted that the lead
 defendant in a $90 million Ponzi scheme
previously considered Washington state's
largest fraud received a 20-year sentence
 But he said the slightly shorter term for
 Berg was appropriate since he'd mostly
    cooperated with prosecutors and
  bankruptcy trustees unravelling the
    labyrinthine workings of his firm.

 That's rich: Notorious criminal Berg was
 handed an 18-year sentence in February
