Vegas Card Shop Stung by Scammer

A Las Vegas sports card store is the victim of what police say is a brazen scam carried out in broad daylight.  Last week, a man believed to be in his 30s walked into Legacy Sports Cards and told them he was an employee of a nearby sushi restaurant who was short of cash and needed to pay a delivery driver.

He was calm enough and his story made sense, according to Legacy owner Marcel Bilak, who turned over some cash to help a man he thought was a business colleague who worked just steps away from his store.

But it was a ruse.

In fact, Legacy was one of four businesses hit by the same man during a short period of time.
