The NFLPA on Friday issued a warning to its players pertaining to a potential financial scam, Alex Marvez of Sporting News reports.
Upon receiving prompts from players asking for further investigation, the NFLPA alerted its members regarding three tax advisory forms controlled or operated by John Richard Burgess, a Chicago resident.
The NFLPA revealed that an unnamed player was appraised a $500,000 fee from one of Burgess’ three entities, Marvez reports.
The NFLPA also listed a number of fraud charges against Burgess that extend back to 1988. However, the NFLPA didn’t claim that Burgess was engaging in any illegal activity in the alert sent to its players.
