Washington, Dec 13(ANI): Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt was left rather red-faced after being snapped with a convicted fraudster during a visit to New Orleans as a part of his Make it Right project.

The 43-year-old star was snapped with Robert Green, convicted for housing fraud, during his visit to the Katrina-affected areas.

Green was to move into one of the Pitts houses also, reports Contactmusic.

An Internet blogger revealed that Green was convicted for housing fraud six months ago, which has been confirmed by court documents.

The anonymous blogger wrote: Poor Brad Pitt. The well-intentioned fellow has no idea who he is dealing with. The tragically described gentleman he is hugging in the photo, Robert Green, was convicted on 11 April 2007 in New Orleans Federal Court for engaging in one of the largest housing-fraud schemes ever perpetrated against HUD (Department Of Housing And Urban Development) in the New Orleans Area.”

An American magazine also confirmed that Green pleaded guilty to federal charges for being a part of a five-year-long conspiracy to acquire fraudulent loans from HUD. (ANI)
