Former OKC player victim of elaborate catfishing scheme Published: September 19, 2013

Chris "Birdman" Andersen, who played in Oklahoma City for the Hornets, has apparently been the victim of an elaborate catfishing scheme.

According to Andersen's attorney, a Canadian woman named Shelly Lynn Chartier has been impersonating Andersen online in order to foster relationships with other people. Apparently, an underage woman in California whose mother allegedly extorted Andersen was actually one of Chartier's victims. Furthermore, Andersen's attorneys believe that it was Chartier, posing as the California woman's mother, who tried to extort Andersen.
