Getting snookered: Banned snooker player fined for not sending cue bought by fan on Facebook
SWINDON, England - Talk about getting snookered.
A banned snooker player has been fined $3,050 after pleading guilty to fraud for selling a fan a cue on Facebook, but not sending it.
Stephen Lee was once the world's fifth-ranked player. He appeared before the Magistrates Court in Swindon on Monday following a police investigation prompted by a complaint by Marco Fai Pak Shek of Hong Kong.
Shek agreed to buy the cue from Lee for $2,689 but never received it. Lee must now pay back that money in addition to a $185 fine and $176 in fees.
Lee was found guilty last September of match fixing in 2008 and 2009. He received a 12-year ban from the sport. His appeal was dismissed last month.
