Georgia Man Used COVID-19 Relief Loan to Buy $57,000 Pokémon Card

Federal prosecutors say a Georgia man used his pandemic relief loan to buy a $57,000 Pokémon card.

Court records show Vinath Oudomsine has been charged with one count of wire fraud for lying on an application for a pandemic economic relief loan about the number of people his business employed and the company's gross revenue.

The court filing said he received $85,000 last August and used $57,789 of it to purchase a rare Pokémon card.

No word yet on which card it was, but high price tags have been attached to first editions of the cards with one unopened box set being sold for more than $400,000 earlier this year.
