Footballer Goes Bankrupt Due To Scam


    PREMIER League ace Jason Euell has gone bankrupt after being scammed in a property venture. The Blackpool star, 33, found out his signature had been forged on documents after the business failed.
    Millionaire Euell – who earns an estimated £7,500 a week – noticed other irregularities in the venture’s finances and fears the fraud could cripple him.
    The striker – who started his career with Wimbledon’s infamous Crazy Gang – said: “Six years ago I invested in a property company with a friend of mine, which due to a number of factors in the last year has failed. “I recently noticed some financial discrepancies and discovered my signature had been forged on documents.
    “I have now put a legal team in place to investigate this. “I have also taken professional advice as a result of which I filed for bankruptcy.”Jamaican international Euell – who has earned about £6million in his 16-year career – lives with wife Andrea, 37, in a £2million home in Richmond, South West London.
    His case was listed at Kingston-upon-Thames County Court last Monday where he gave his job as “a professional footballer”. According to details of the bankruptcy, the order will be automatically discharged after 12 months.
