The Wood County Sheriff is seeking any information connected to several cases of fraudulent tickets sold to buyers believing they were legitimate.
Two women located not far from Toledo were searching online for some last-minute tickets to see their favorite country star when they ran across an online posting for some leftover tickets.
“It said I have four tickets for sale. Half of our group backed out at the last minute and I'm just trying to get rid of them,” said Asha Vasudeva.
Vasudeva along with her friend Michelle Mangette both were suspicious, but said that the back story and guy selling them appeared truthful and legitimate. They met the seller in a busy restaurant parking lot.
“They had the barcode on them, it said Ticketmaster on them. It had the seat number, location. It said Luke Bryan; it looked like any other legit ticket that I would have printed off of Ticketmaster,” Mangette revealed to WTOL Channel 11.
But when the women and their friends they bought the extra tickets for arrived at the venue, they were turned away because the tickets were forged.
The local sheriff's office says that these women are very likely not the only victims and the department believes that the same person may be responsible for other crimes of the same nature.
If the thief is found, they could face charges of fraud and theft by deception.
