Last year, a Georgia man was indicted by federal prosecutors after he allegedly lied to apply for a Covid disaster loan, then turned around and passed it off as a single Pokemon Map. He has now admitted his guilt and has been sentenced to prison.

As we wrote in 2021:

Vinath Oudomsine of Dublin, Georgia, has been charged by federal prosecutors with fraudulently applying for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). The man claimed to run a business but reportedly spent the most money on a rarity Pokemon card instead.

as The Telegraph reports, Oudomsine is accused by authorities of applying for the loan last year and alleges he ran a small business that employed 10 other people. The loans, which were available nationwide and led to the government lending over $200 billion to American companies.

He was successful and received $85,000. The only problem was that prosecutors claimed he had no such deal and instead spent most of the loan amount — $57,789 — on a single Pokemon Map. He has now been charged with wire fraud and if found guilty he could face “up to 20 years in federal prison” and would also face a $250,000 fine.

The Justice Department announced today that Oudomsine will serve three years in a federal prison after he “pled guilty to one count of wire fraud”, meaning there is no chance of parole. After his exit, he will spend another three years in “supervised release”. In addition to his penalty, Oudomsine must repay the $85,000 loan, along with an additional $10,000 fine.

Although we didn’t know at the time which specific card he spent the money on, the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia has now been able to disclose that the card in question was a $57,000 “Charizard.” acted as polygon mention, that is probably this 9.5 gem mint card.
