Former Associate Accuses TanaCon Organizer Michael Weist Of Draining Joint Bank Accounts; Weist Denies It
Michael Weist is a 24-year-old entrepreneur and social media manager who says his life turned upside-down in 2018 after TanaCon, the social media influencer convention he organized, was shut down due to security concerns. Michael claims that in the aftermath of TanaCon, he was forced to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy, and his reputation was ruined.
Jackson, a social media influencer and former client, says his relationship with Michael soured after Michael allegedly drained and “pocketed” $35,000 from two shared bank accounts that Jackson claims were earmarked for a joint business venture selling clothing and merchandise.
Michael denies Jackson’s claims, insisting that - because of his bankruptcy - he had no control over what happened to the money. Watch the video above to hear Michael’s response when Jackson says, “You cannot take accountability.”
