In the fall of 2010, Kyle Ciampa ran numerous Yahoo! fantasy football leagues. As commissioner of the "Cash $$League," Kyle Ciampa collected payment from all participants ($550 total) and then disappeared when it was time to pay out the winners. Kyle Ciampa has not replied to messages posted to the league board (see screenshot below).
It is unknown at this time whether Kyle Ciampa pocketed participants' funds in other fantasy leagues as well. If you have also been cheated out of fantasy winnings by Kyle Ciampa, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or share your experience on our Guestbook. Also, please be sure to check out or new additions to this website: "Kyle's emails" and "Our Demands." There are links to these sections at the top of this page.
We hope that Yahoo! members avoid any transactions with Kyle Ciampa. Future employers may also want to consider this information in making hiring decisions, as we believe it speaks to Kyle Ciampa's maturity, character and fitness for employment. We would also be especially cautious about entering any financial agreement with Kyle through AAICF, because he has demonstrated to us that he will act in his own best interest, rather than honor the contracts he enters.
In response to this website, Kyle filed a police report with the Lee County Sherriff's Office--which was a bizarre tactical move for an individual who is wrongfully in possession of other peoples' money. Regardless, we welcome the opportunity to discuss Kyle's behavior with the police if/when the Sergeant reviews and approves his case (#11-168335). As always, law enforcement personnel can reach us at email@example.com. (If you'd like us to call you or provide our contact information, just ask. We'd be happy to save you the trouble of a subpoena, and look forward to giving you the full story of what has transpired.)
In the meantime, we will continue to exercise our First Amendment rights as we dutifully inform the public about our unfortunate experiences with Kyle Ciampa.
We spoke to the police, who admitted that we were not breaking any laws and could not be forced to take down this website. We believe that the case against us has been closed, and encourage law enforcement officers to investigate Kyle's behavior under Florida's theft statute, which is excerpted below.
(1) A person commits theft if he or she knowingly obtains or uses, or endeavors to obtain or to use, the property of another with intent to, either temporarily or permanently:
(a) Deprive the other person of a right to the property or a benefit from the property.
(b) Appropriate the property to his or her own use or to the use of any person not entitled to the use of the property.(c) It is grand theft of the third degree and a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084, if the property stolen is:
1. Valued at $300 or more, but less than $5,000.
