Buyer beware… especially when Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga are advertised on the same bill.
Con men, Luke Loy and Dean R. De Sana both tried and got caught.
The pair sold tickets for a fake concert, with Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert at the top of the bill. Almost two thousand people had purchased tickets for the fictional gig at $100 a pop – meaning the crooks had made an impressive $17,800 in sales.
However, following complaints from eleven individuals growing concerned at the whereabouts of their tickets, the police cottoned on and realised the concert was one big scam. And now the two West Virginia men are in police custody facing charges of fraud.
