    Winfield loses 1.3 million to crooked Investment Man

    http://www.columbusdispatch.com/live/content/local_news/stories/2007/08/29/dunyasha.ART_ART_08-29-07_B4_AU7OC21.html?sid=101

    A former sports agent and OSU wrestling champion admitted yesterday to a scheme that bilked investors out of $1.8 million.

    Dunyasha M. Yetts appeared before federal Judge John D. Holschuh and pleaded guilty to two counts of mail fraud and one count of conspiracy to possess marijuana.

    Yetts promised to invest money for investors, but instead spent it on himself or paid off investors from previous deals, Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Kelley said.

    Former OSU football player Antoine Winfield was among the victims. Winfield, who now plays for the Minnesota Vikings, lost most of the $1.3 million he invested in dealings with Yetts, Kelley said.
    "Scout" says:
    This incident could explain some of the off-field issues Winfield was dealing with during this past off-season when he chose not to participate in voluntary OTAs with the team.

    ouch !!!
    think if I had 1.3m spare then I wouldn't need to invest - that would cover trips to the TC for regular season games and beer money for said games
    ;D
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    On the bright side, maybe Winfield will be playing angry this year because of it.

    I think this is a result of playing off of the man by way too much.

    If he were playing bump and run like he should be doing this would never happen.

    This statement smacks of wild speculation. Once again, I'm amazed by the thin content that passes for news these days. If my job doesn't work out, I am encouraged by the fact that I can have a future in online reporting.
