Sports Agent Accused Of Cheating|Golf Channel Contestant’s Sponsor

ST. LOUIS (CN) - Federal prosecutors say a sports agent defrauded the sponsor of a contestant on a golf reality show of $21,000. Andrew W. Moss, CEO of Onyx Sports Group in Honolulu, is charged for his actions related to the Golf Channel TV show, "Big Break II."

The indictment states that golfer Scott Yancy III, a contestant on the show, was introduced to Moss this year. At a golf tournament, Yancy met a potential sponsor, whom the indictment refers to as A.M., whom Yancy told to contact Moss.

A.M. gave Moss $50,000 in June, but only $10,000 went to Yancy, and only after A.M. complained, according to the complaint.

A.M. asked for a refund and gave Moss his bank account number to deposit it, but Moss allegedly tried to take $34,900 out of the account and succeeded in getting $21,000, the indictment states.

Moss told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that it was all a misunderstanding and that everybody would get their money back. Yancy did not win "Big Break II."
