Woman With Ties to Players Charged

According to the Associated Press, federal prosecutors charged an Omaha, Neb., woman who has business ties to NFL players with stealing $3 million in an alleged Ponzi scheme.

The AP identified the woman as Mary Wong, reporting that she worked out of her Omaha home and once advised Michael Vick.

Wong ran her own investment business and also was partnered in a corporation with NFL players Demorrio Williams and Josh and Daniel Bullocks, the AP reported. All three formerly played at the University of Nebraska. Prosecutors said the corporation benefited from the Ponzi scheme, according to the AP.

The identities of the eight victims of the Ponzi scheme were not immediately known.

Vick sued Wong in January in an attempt to recover $2 million from her, according to the AP.
