Musician Scammed

Roger Davidson, an oil industry heir who also happens to be a pianist and jazz composer, claims he’s been fleeced out of $6 million.

Janet DiFiore, a district attorney for Westchester County in New York, said owners of a computer repair company ran an elaborate, six-year scam against the musician.

The grand larceny defendants allegedly convinced Davidson that his computer had been hacked and that he was the target of an international assassination plot. They charged Davidson for bogus security.

The composer is the great-grandson of the founder of Schlumberger Ltd., a Houston-based oilfield services company.

Davidson declined to be interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, and the attorney for one of the defendants declined comment.
