Former Spartan Jay Vincent Indicted For Scamming Online Jobseekers

The Associated Press reports that former Michigan State basketball player Jay Vincent has been indicted in connection to an online scam that targeted jobseekers.

Ex-NBA player and Michigan State star Jay Vincent has been indicted for an Internet employment scam that bilked about 20,000 jobseekers out of about $2 million, the U.S. Attorney's office said Thursday.

The 51-year-old Vincent and 53-year-old Anthony Portee face charges of mail fraud, and Vincent is charged with an income tax violation, authorities said.

Both men live in Lansing.

The AP also notes that Vincent was a teammate of Magic Johnson's on MSU's 1979 NCAA championship team.
