Woman reports buying fake tickets for Kenny Chesney concert

Fargo police received a report over the weekend of ticket fraud from a woman who said she purchased Kenny Chesney tickets on Craigslist that ended up being nonexistent.

The woman called police Saturday about 10:23 p.m. to report the fraud, according to dispatch reports confirmed by Sgt. Mark Lykken.

The woman said she wired money to a seller believed to be in Grand Forks, N.D.

The seller told her the tickets would be at the Ticketmaster booth in the Fargodome, but when she went to retrieve them she was told they did not have any tickets in her name and the confirmation number she had was not a typical Ticketmaster confirmation number, dispatch reports state.
