Ex-NFLer Swiped Former Teammate's Grandma's ID For Use In Mortgage Scam, Say Cops

In Miami, Florida, USA Today reports:
  • Could a 6-6, 335-pound former NFL player get away with using the identity of a 74-year-old grandmother? That's a question to ask in the wake of Jamie Nails being charged with mortgage fraud. Miami police say the former Miami Dolphin and Buffalo Bill stole the identity of the grandmother of a former Bills teammate, Daryl Porter. Nails is accused of using the identity of Delores Porter to obtain a $510,000 mortgage for a condominium, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Nails, who played in the NFL from 1997-2002, making 51 starts.
