Feds: Man used virus relief loan to buy $57,000 Pokemon card
DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) — Federal authorities say a Georgia man has pleaded guilty to illegally obtaining a coronavirus relief loan and using more than $57,000 of the money to buy a collectable Pokemon card.
The 31-year-old man pleaded guilty before a federal judge to a single count of wire fraud.
Prosecutors said Oudomsine submitted false information to the U.S. Small Business Administration last year in applying for a COVID-19 relief loan.
They say he received $85,000, and spent more than half on the Pokemon trading card.
