Georgia man used Coronavirus relief loan to buy $57,000 Pokemon card

A man in Georgia is facing charges for illegally obtaining a Coronavirus relief loan and using more than $57,000 of it to buy a Pokemon card.


He faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty in U.S. District court. The man submitted a false claim to the U.S. Small Business Administration last year, claiming he had an entertainment business that he owned. He lied about the number of people he had employed and his business' annual revenues.

He received an $85,000 loan, and used $57,789 to buy the Pokemon card.
