NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has reportedly lost $200,000 in a ticket scam after attempting to buy courtside seats for a Miami Heat game.

According to Liz Habib from MyFoxLA.com, a man named George French Jones has allegedly been selling tickets along with a minority share in the Heat. The NBA and the Heat contacted the FBI to let them know Moon was scammed for $200,000 after he was offered seats and a five percent share in the team.

Moon is currently an analyst for the Seahawks' flagship radio station and will be heading to New York for the Super Bowl.
