Man says he won fantasy football but was never paid

A man is suing the American Fantasy Football League (AFFL) for allegedly failing to pay him after he won a championship and the grand prize.

Jeff Gill says that the AFFL accepted entry fees of up to $1,400 to participate in fantasy football and promised that payment was "guaranteed," but in January 2010 after he won the grand prize of $60,000 and other prizes, the company admitted that they couldn't pay him.

The complaint states that AFFL "deceitfully failed to tell the unsuspecting participants before or during the contests that the Grand Prize was, in essence, a 'fantasy' of their own fraudulent making."

Gill is suing for, among other things, the $60,000 grand prize, plus $9,000 which is the value of the Waterford Crystal Trophy he also won, plus the Custom Trophy for winning the Gold Division.
