    EAG Sports Management company said in an email that it had become aware of a man posing as the quarterback in the D.C. area.  According to EAG Sports Management agency, since June the man was collecting money for appearances as the quarterback, "conning unsuspecting women and some men into believing his scam."

    The impostor struck several times in the past week or so, according to the Vince Young Foundation -- the non-profit for which the impostor has said he is taking money.

    "I want to get it out there to the news and everybody to keep a watch out for this guy," Young said, "because he's not me."
