Former Razorback accuses business partner of property fraud

Fayetteville, Arkansas (KNWA/KFTA) — A former Razorback basketball player has accused his former teammate and business partner of commercial fraud.

Courtney Fortson, who last played for Arkansas in 2010 and is now a professional in Israel, owns a limited liability company that invests in Arkansas real estate, according to police information reports.

His former teammate, Nicholas Mason, was an agent for the company, the report said. Fordson returned to the U.S. in 2020 to find a property sold without his knowledge, the report said.

Upon investigation, the report said Fortson found that Mason had opened separate bank accounts in LLC filings and sold multiple other properties without his knowledge.

The report said Fortson received a letter from a collection firm, and Fortson’s lawyers said the financial firm MNS Funding LLC filed a lawsuit against Fortson in New York.

The money was transferred to an account Mason owed alone, Fortson’s lawyers said, according to the report. Fortson’s attorneys believe Mason took the loan online from his Fayetteville home.

Fayetteville police do not know if it has jurisdiction over the case, and if so, it will amend its report with the correct criminal offense.

This is a developing story. Keep in touch with KNWA/FOX24 for updates.
