Scott V. Spina Jr. sentenced to three years in prison for Tom Brady Super Bowl ring fraud


A New Jersey man who posed as a former New England Patriots player in order to buy and sell Super Bowl rings that he claimed were gifts to Tom Brady's family was sentenced Monday to three years in federal prison. Scott V. Spina Jr., 25, of Roseland was sentenced by a judge in Southern California's Orange County. In 2017, Spina bought a Patriots 2016 Super Bowl championship ring from a New England player who then left the team. Prosecutors said Spina paid the player -- identified only as T.J. -- with at least one bad check and sold the ring for $63,000 to an Orange County broker of championship rings. Spina pleaded guilty on Feb. 1. to one count of mail fraud, three counts of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft for posing as the former Patriots player, falsely telling the broker that the family rings were ordered by Brady and defrauding him in connection with three wire transfers for the deposit.

New Jersey man sentenced to jail for fraud in scheme selling Tom Brady Super Bowl rings


Scott V. Spina Jr., 25, of Roseland, New Jersey, orchestrated and executed a scheme in 2017 that started with defrauding an ex-New England Patriots player, swindling him out of his Super Bowl LI championship ring with a bad check for $63,000. Spina then sold the ring to a well-known sports ring broker in Orange County, California, according to court documents. Along with his fraudulently acquired ring, Spina also obtained sensitive information of the ex-NFL player, including a means to purchase what are called "family and friend rings" from the original Super Bowl ring company. Friends and family rings are smaller versions of the rings that players receive and only NFL members are allowed to purchase.
