Mike Miller may sue the Heat, alleging they introduced him to a known con man

LINK

quote:

According to the lawsuit, Miller was introduced to a con man named Haider Zafar by Stephen Weber, who was then the Heat's executive vice president of sales. At the time, Zafar had purchased $3 million worth of courtside seats from the Heat, but was delinquent with his payments. Miller claims that Weber urged him to meet with Zafar, and the two agreed on a business deal that ended with Zafar defrauding Miller out of $1.7 million. Miller claims that Zafar then used $700,000 of that stolen money to pay off part of his debt to the Heat.

The key allegation in Miller's lawsuit is not that Weber introduced him to Zafar, but that he did so knowing full well that Zafar was a shady con man who was very likely looking to steal from Miller. From the Herald:


quote:

“Prior to introducing Zafar to Miller and prior to representing that Zafar was a suitable business and investment partner, the Heat… and Weber had a duty to fully investigate whether that patron was, in fact, a suitable partner,” Miller’s complaint says.

“Upon discovering information that would have led a reasonable person to conclude that Zafar was a fraud,… the Heat and Weber had a duty to notify Miller, instead of continuing to endorse Zafar…. Due to the acts and omission of the Heat and Weber, Zafar was able to steal a large amount of money from Miller.”

Without commenting on the legal aspect, it does sound pretty irresponsible.

My stereotypes of Miami make me think that place is crawling with con men too.

Agreed, all I see are allegations that the Heat knew about Zafar, but no proof.

This does sound sketchy on Weber's part, but I mean nobody forced Miller into a business deal.

Interesting legal theory. The Heat scumbagging their own players to get reimbursed for the courtside seats. It reminds me of those stock brokers setting up clients with shitty stocks because they were getting kick backs from the companies. I would be pissed if I was mike miller.
