Michael Vick Claims|Adviser Stole $2 Million

NORFOLK, Va. - Imprisoned quarterback Michael Vick claims his former financial adviser stole more than $2 million from him. Vick claims that Mary Wong, of Williams and Bullocks - which she allegedly owns with three other NFL players - duped him into giving her power of attorney by concealing that the New York Stock Exchange had found her guilty of misappropriating customer funds, and barred her from the exchange.

Vick claims Wong used the power of attorney to take money from his accounts and put it into her personal and business accounts, without accounting for it or providing any investment returns.

Wong owns 25% of Williams and Bullocks; her partners are Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Demorrio Williams, New Orleans Saints safety Josh Bullocks, and his twin, Detroit Lions safety Daniel Bullocks, according to the complaint.

Vick, who expects to be released from federal prison this year after a dog fighting scandal, wants his money back, punitive damages and attorney's fees.

He is represented in Federal Court by Peter Ginsberg with Crowell Moring.
