SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – At least twelve people were sold forged Dave Matthew tickets by a teen con artist.
The Dave Matthews Band played their annual concert at SPAC this past weekend to a sold out crowd, but some concert goers were sold bad tickets.
One Capital Region woman said she and her husband responded to a Craigslist ad for Dave Matthews tickets. She said she met the seller Friday at Colonie Center and bought two tickets for over $300.
She later noticed the tickets and purchase receipts did not have the right look or feel to them, and she contacted police. Her description of the seller led mall security to the 16-year-old seller from the Bronx.
Bryan David was charged as an adult with Scheme to Defraud, Possessing a Forged Instrument and Petit Larceny.
However, David’s other alleged victims arrived at SPAC for the Saturday concert and were turned away.
Lt. Bob Winn with the Colonie Police Department said the tickets were likely scanned from one legitimate ticket which was then copied over and over.
Winn said David made bail and returned to the Bronx.
