Was Gavin Griffin Scammed out of $6,500 by a Guy Posing as a Gal?

I’m gonna send you out of here in three short paragraphs and over to http://kickasspoker.blogspot.com, to read one of the best tabloid poker stories of the year.

If the tale is true, Gavin Griffin, who was the youngest-ever winner of a WSOP bracelet when he won the $3,000 Pot Limit Hold’em event at the 2004 WSOP, was scammed out of $6,500 by a 19 year old male poker player with a female online persona, a hot picture or two to match, and a seasoned con man’s ability to tell a glib yet convincing story to a mark eager to believe all that he was hearing.

It’s all based on a post that first appeared on NeverWinPoker, a poker-discussion forum with a reputation for unrestricted content. But this story is not just about the $6,500. It involves some allegedly steamy online activities between Griffin and the scammer, culminating in Griffin sending a picture of his more private parts to his “cybergal.”

If you like to dish the dirt, this tale is about as dishy and dirty as it gets, so go on over to Kickass Poker and read Haley Hintze’s tabloidesque piece for yourself.
