Word that a Warren Moon scam happened over a spendy ticket purchase is making headline news. The Seahawks' official radio analyst was the victim of a fraudulent transaction in the amount of $200,000 when he thought he was purchasing four courtside tickets to a Miami Heat game. He was also informed that he could become a 5 percent minority owner of the team, FOX News reported Jan. 24.

A man by the name of George French Jones handled the transaction with Moon's agent. The NBA and Miami Heat called in the FBI when they learned of the Warren Moon scam. Apparently this Jones person had also tried getting money from an NFL player with the New England Patriots as well as another Pro Bowler

Moon's agent reportedly wired $200,000 for the Miami Heat tickets and part ownership agreement to an account at Academy Bank in Pasadena, but Jones' end of the deal never came through. Now Moon's company -- Sports 1 Marketing -- is on a mission to sue George French Jones to get his money returned, but Jones has mysteriously disappeared.

It would take a clever person to pull a scheme like the Warren Moon scam. $200,000 is a lot of money to have stolen no matter how much someone really has. Hopefully George French Jones will be caught soon for his deception.
