Jason Taylor has made a living out of chasing down quarterbacks — now the NFL star is trying to chase down the man he says bilked him out of more than a quarter of a million dollars!
According to a lawsuit filed back in August, Taylor claims he gave $500,000 to a man named Eric Kim, who told Taylor he was an experienced securities investor. Taylor alleges Kim promised to invest the money on Taylor’s behalf, and would do so without charging any fees … except for 10% of whatever profits he made.
But alas … Taylor says from August 2009 until March 2011, Kim “misappropriated” $275,269.10 of the money Taylor gave him. According to Taylor, Kim wrote 37 checks from the account he set up with Taylor’s money … 32 of which were either made out to Kim himself or to his good friend “cash.”
Taylor is suing for fraud, among other things, and is looking for his money back, plus costs.
