Kevin Hart’s former personal shopper has been charged with defrauding the comedian out of more than $1 million.
Dylan Jason Syer, 29, of Long Island City, was indicted and arraigned in New York on Wednesday for multiple charges including grand larceny for allegedly making over a million dollars in “unauthorized charges and purchases on the comedian’s credit cards” between October 12, 2017, through February 25, 2019, a press release from Queens County District Attorney Melinda Katz states.
“This defendant, who owned a personal shopper business, used legitimate purchases to gain access and then allegedly continued to charge the actor’s credit cards for astronomical sums of money,” Katz said.
According to the press release, Syer allegedly charged approximately $923,000 on Hart’s card without authorization in addition to $240,000 worth of jewelry and watches.

With the stolen money, Syer acquired a number of expensive items including five Patek Phillipe watches valued at more than $400,000, a Sam Friedman painting, over 20 collectible dolls, and two Louis Vuitton bags.
“The defendant thought he was beyond reach and was living out his uber-rich lifestyle fantasies. But my team uncovered the bogus purchases – from the credit card charges being processed by the bank, down to tracking FedEx packages delivered to Syer’s home and business,” Katz described.
