Paul Orberson has been very generous to the UK athletics department over the years but that will be coming to an end now that he’s been busted for running a pyramid scheme. Orberson’s Danville-based Fortune Hi-Tech Marketing company has been operating a “massive pyramid scheme” involving more than 100,000 people, announced today by Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway. Conway said criminal penalties could be involved, since violating Kentucky’s pyramid scheme law is a Class C felony.
Orberson donated $1.6 million to UK in 2002 for the Paul Orberson Football Complex offices in the Nutter Training Facility. He’s also the man behind the $100,000 winning bid at the Hoops For Haiti telethon to have a private dinner with the Caliparis and Ashley Judd in the Calipari home.
Assuming his name will be removed from Nutter, KSR plans to reach out to UK about renaming the complex to BTI Sucks Football Complex or Stadium Frame’s Final Four Print Wants UK Football Offices and Other Rooms.
