It has been revealed thatPro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has lost $200,000 in a scam about Miami Heat tickets that didn't exist and possible part ownership of the basketball franchise. 

A man named George French Jones approached Moon about buying four court-side tickets and a five percent ownership stake in the Heat. Moon's agent then wired the money to an account in California to complete the deal. Apparently Jones told Moon that if he bought the tickets, it would be viewed as a sort of down payment for the five percent ownership stake, reported MyFoxLA.

Jones is now being investigated by the FBI following a request from the NBA and the Miami Heat, and is being sued by Moon's company. He is reported to have approached two other former football players with similar offers. 

Unfortunately for Moon, George Jones seems to have completely disappeared and all efforts to contact the fraudster have not been returned.
