Robinson Police: Woman Falls for Justin Bieber Ticket Scam
Robinson Township Police blotter for Wednesday, Dec. 12.
A Monessen woman forked over $300 for a pair of Justin Bieber concert tickets that turned out to be fakes, according to Robinson police.
Police said the woman, who found the tickets through a seller on Craigslist, agreed to meet with a Crafton man named "Morgan Thetter" on Nov. 19 outside of the Mall at Robinson to exchange the tickets, according to a complaint.
When the woman and her daughter attended the tween star's concert on Nov. 20 at Consol Energy Center, they were turned away at the door.
