Fake Promoter Busted Down Under

HTML clipboardAn Australian woman is facing fraud charges after authorities claim she made nearly $100,000 off fans that bought tickets to a 2005 AC/DC concert that was never actually booked.  The arrest came after band representatives told police the band had never been in contact with the accused woman about any concert.  Police say the 41 year-old defendant did not limit her scam to bilking fans.  She is also charged with collecting sponsorship dollars from businesses and charities in and around Sydney for the phantom gig.
