An elderly Colorado man is facing federal wire fraud charges for his alleged role in a scheme that included counterfeit Michael Jordan trading cards and defrauded collectors of more than $800,000.

Mayo Gilbert McNeil, 82, was arrested in Denver on Wednesday, the Justice Department said in a news release. He is accused of being part of a conspiracy to pass off fraudulent sports cards as genuine by mimicking the rating system and shipping methods of an established sporting goods company.

According to the probable cause affidavit, McNeil targeted at least two sports card collectors: one in New York, identified only as “Victim-1,” and one in Michigan, identified as “Victim-2.” The affidavit also details the involvement of “Company-1,” described as a “third-party authentication and grading service for collectibles,” including sports cards.
