The Attorney General is suing a company that ripped off businesses in a marketing scam connected to the SIU Carbondale basketball team.  The Eagle Marketing Group, based in Edgewood, Kentucky, allegedly used the Saluki logo and trademarks to get Illinois businesses to pay for ad space on a team schedule last year.  

The company also allegedly told businesses they'd be featured in a television commercial, which never aired.  Most businesses paid more than 300-dollars for the ad space but a lawsuit filed by Lisa Madigan seeks to recover the cash and ban the company from operating in Illinois.
