Police are warning about an apparent scam involving fake tickets being sold through Craigslist to the upcoming Justin Bieber concert.
Three people claim to have been cheated after purchasing tickets to the Oct. 26 concert at the Sprint Center through the online site, Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass reported on his blog Thursday.
Two victims came to an Overland Park police station this week to say they had met the seller and paid $125 for their tickets. They later discovered the serial numbers were the same. They contacted the Sprint Center and learned the tickets were counterfeit. A third person made the same claim to Overland Park police but was referred to Gardner police because the transaction took place in that city.
Douglass said police think all three were victims of the same perpetrator and there many be additional victims.
Tickets to the Bieber concert are going for as high as $2,462 for floor seats directly in front of the stage. That price is posted through a ticket resale service accessible from the Sprint Center website.
