Two Men Arrested For Selling Fake Phish Tickets
Two Schenectady, NY men were arrested and accused of selling forged Phish tickets via Craigslist. Local authorities say they received a report from the victim on October 5, saying they unknowingly bought two fake Phish tickets to the October 23 show in Glens Falls, NY. Through an arranged meeting in the parking lot of the Colonie Center, police apprehended the two sellers and charged them with Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument in the 3rd Degree and Petit Larceny, both misdemeanors.
The forged tickets were full page printouts created to look like their legitimate Ticketmaster counterparts. Phish kicks off their Fall Tour October 18 in Hampton, VA.
