Did you know the fraud saga of John Rogers has drawn the attention of CNBC’s “American Greed”?

We’re told that the show’s scouts have watched with interest the unfolding of the crash-and-burn story of the North Little Rock sports memorabilia and photo dealer.

With Rogers sentenced to 12 years on Dec. 20, his long-running series of frauds reached a judicial conclusion.

And this is expected to start the production wheels turning for an “American Greed” episode.

We’ll see.

Meanwhile, some loose ends remain.

We understand that the former Mrs. John Rogers (aka Angelica Luna) has been summoned to Chicago by the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

The occasion?

To be questioned under oath regarding assets that could go toward satisfying a $23.5 million judgment against her ex.

You might recall that figure is based on actual out-of-pocket losses by 26 known victims.

You might also recall that Rogers was prosecuted in the Windy City.

That was the base of operations for the criminal investigation of another sports memorabilia fraud, a shill bidding scheme at Mastro Auctions of Chicago.

Mastro was the subject of an “American Greed” episode that first aired last summer.
