    Exclamation Steelers' Larry Foote victim of fraud

    DETROIT -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Larry Foote claims he is the victim of a scheme to defraud him out of more than $400,000.
    In a lawsuit Foote's lawyer says was filed Thursday in Wayne County Circuit Court, Foote claims he was duped when he invested money with two defendants associated with a Dearborn Heights valet service. Foote was born in Detroit, went to Michigan and played for the Detroit Lions in 2009.The suit claims Foote was approached in 2010 by one of the defendants, who indicated he had recently acquired major valet contracts and needed an investor to provide capital.

    Fraud can be hard to prove sometimes in cases like that especially for investors..hopefully he can win his money back.

    So many of these guys get duped by investiors, and wind up losing everything. Look at Mark Brunnel all those years playing, all the money he made.....lost it all to bad investments....its the only reason he has hung around the last few years with the Jets,
    he was broke

    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.

    Damned if they do and damned if they don't.
    I see it as they are at least investing the money instead of blowing it. Some investments pan out and some don't, only the bad ones hit the news. Calling them a fool for trying to use their money to support them after their career is a little much.
    Only my opinion of course..
