A Matawan man is charged with selling the rights to more than two dozen season tickets seats for the New York Giants football team at MetLife Stadium who at times posed as an official representative of the team, announced Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.

John N. Gorman, 47, of Matawan, was arrested last week by detectives from the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, with the assistance of the Aberdeen Police Department, and charged with second degree theft by deception.

Gorman was released after posting $50,000 bail, as set by state Superior Court Judge Francis P. Vernoia. If convicted, Gorman faces a maximum potential state prison term of up to 10 years. 

An investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office revealed Gorman allegedly stole more than $75,000 from numerous victims in the tri-state area from Nov. 9, 2008 through July 31, 2010.

Gorman, as a season ticket holder for the New York Giants football team, fraudulently represented he had Personal Seat Licenses (PSL) for sale, according to the prosecutor's office.

A PSL is a one-time fee that provides a license to individuals for the subsequent purchase of season tickets. The PSL was set up by the Giants Stadium, LLC to coincide with the opening of the MetLife Stadium in 2010.   Information pertaining to the PSL program was sent out to season ticket holders.

Gorman fraudulently represented the PSL program information sent to him by the Giants by displaying documents to the victims detailing he personally possessed 28 PSLs, according to the prosecutor's office. In some instances, Gorman also misrepresented himself as the ticketing manager for the New York Giants.  The victims paid Gorman in full and never received their seats for the 2010 football season.

Anyone with additional information or anyone who has had contact with Gorman concerning the purchase of PSLs is urged to call the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 1-800-533-7443.

This guy is obviously a scam artist. The Giants and Jets selling PSL's for the right to buy seats also qualifies imo. My seats in the old stadium would have cost me $25,000 for the PSL rights in the new so called improved stadium. Couldn't/ wouldn't afford it so they move on and sell them to someone else. Spitting in the face s of their long time fans if you ask me and many others.
