Nate Lewis was among them.

Lewis said he paid Quanell X $2,000 to bring attention to what he called a wrongful termination from his job.

“He said, ‘I need this amount of money to get the ball rolling.’ I pretty much never heard from him again,” Lewis said Wednesday.

Lewis said he filed a lawsuit in small claims court.

“That’s when I got his attention,” he said. “I got my money back. He had no choice — either let the judge look at the evidence I had, or give me my money, which is nothing I wanted to go through.”
