Quarterback Vince Young Files Investment Fraud Lawsuit

by Wall Street Fraud on June 22, 2012

investment fraud athletesQuarterback Vince Young appears to be the latest star athlete to fall victim to investment fraud. He recently filed a lawsuit against his former financial advisor and former agent for fraud and breach of contract. Young contends they are responsible for "losing" at least $5.5 million.

Young has filed suit in Harris County civil court in Houston against his financial advisor, Ronnie T. Peoples of Peoples Financial Service Inc. in Raleigh, N.C., and his former agent, Houston lawyer Major L. Adams II, according to Financial Advisor Magazine. The suit alleges claims for fraud, unjust enrichment, conversion, breach of fiduciary duty, usury, and breach of contact.

Some of the offenses may have involved forgeries of Young's name, according to Young's attorney. Millions of dollars are reportedly unaccounted for from the five years that Young played for the Tennessee Titans, during which he was paid $54 million.
