Ex-'Cane Randy Phillips details relationship with Nevin Shapiro


Randy Phillips says Nevin Shapiro lured him with the cash he swindled from investors. Shapiro was later sentenced to 20 years in prison for his involvement in a $930 million Ponzi scheme. Shapiro threw around large sums of money to attract players. Phillips recalled a time they were at the Lucky Strike bowling alley/nightclub on South Beach when Shapiro used cash to help him gain the attention of a cocktail waitress. "He said, 'Randy, you like that waitress? I'm going to give her 100 dollars each time she walks by,"' Phillips said. "She walked by at least 50 times." (South Florida Sun-Sentinel)
