Frosty The Fraud Man

David Frost gets arrested again; he uses former client’s credit card to purchase gas.

Remember David Frost? Yeah…this guy. It looks like the former NHL agent was never phased by the fact that his former client, Mike Danton (previously named Mike Jefferson), tried to kill him.

Because just when you thought that David Frost might be trying to get away from his troubled past (which includes being charged with 12 counts of sexual exploitation), Frost makes the paper for another blunder. This time, it is quite ironic.

On August 24th of last year, I mentioned that Frost moved back to his home of Kingston, Ontario to open up a juice bar. In all actuality, it was a nightclub called Juice. makes sure to mention the club’s attractive staff. But after the sexual exploitation charges were levied on Frost and he had a falling out with his nephew (who was a part owner), Juice Nightclub collapsed.

As one must imagine, times were rough for David Frost. He probably put quite a lot of investment into the nightclub, which unfortunately didn’t last long. This probably meant that Frost was left with little to no money, which would explain why he began making these impulsive decisions. Frost made the decision to use a former client’s credit card who once tried to hire someone to kill him? Apparently. This past Friday, Frost was arrested for using Mike Danton’s credit card to pay a gas bill that amounted to $89.11 [Hockey Agent Frost Arrested For Fraud]. It seems that David Frost is desperate for money. Following the loss of his nightclub, it wouldn’t be surprising if he had a poor credit score, limiting his ability to take out loans. If Frost would’ve contacted a financial advisor, they might’ve told him about the Opensky credit card which he might’ve successfully applied for, even with a poor credit history. If he’d have spoken to someone, perhaps Frost wouldn’t have committed fraud and wouldn’t be in this negative spotlight. However, personally, I think this guy needs to be put away already. The fact that any news headline would have the word “agent” and “fraud” in the title bothers me.
