EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) A man has been charged with forging the signature of Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid on team jerseys and then selling them for big profits.
Edmonton police say the 23-year-old man in April 2018 contacted several people on Facebook, claiming he was employed by either the Edmonton Oilers Entertainment Group or Pro Am Sports, and was selling autographed McDavid jerseys.
Chandra Vinesh Singh has been charged with fraud, forging documents and false pretense.
Investigators believe he sold two items bearing bogus signatures to someone for $1,400, then defrauded another person of $23,000.
Oilers Entertainment Group executive Tim Shipton thanked fans for their support but stressed that this case is a ''good reminder for our fans to always go to trusted sources.''
