Metro Indianapolis police and FBI investigators are looking into claims of fraud against a woman who claims to be Reggie Wayne’s mistress.
After obtaining a search warrant, 15 FBI agents took materials from 26-year-old Natasha McKenzie’s home after she was accused of stealing his debit card, and charging nearly $93,000 on it, according to Fox 59 in Indianapolis.
The story isn’t simple, though. Wayne apparently had a relationship with the woman. He said she requested he wire her money. When he refused, he noticed “more than 300 unaccounted for transactions dating back to September
2009″ according to WISH-TV.
McKenzie spins a different tale.
“Reggie knew what was going on. I sent Reggie plenty of thank you
messages. He knew everything that was going on. There was nothing fraud
about it. . . . I had permission to buy whatever I bought. Reggie gave me all of his
credit card information I still have a record of everything he gave me.”
The credit card charges include daycare bills, college tuition, and trips she says she took with Wayne. She thinks that Wayne’s wife may have found out about their affair and be at the root of the investigation. McKenzie claims to have text messages she kept from Wayne. In short: this could take a while and get ugly.
The Colts had no comment to the local news Friday night, saying they were unaware of the incident.
