Hundreds taken by Memphis in May ticket scam

According to Memphis in May organizers, several hundred music fans were caught up in a scam at the Beale Street Music Festival Saturday when they purchased festival tickets from individuals on the streets of downtown Memphis.

Music fans arrived at the festival gates only to discover that their tickets were counterfeit. They were turned away and lost their money.

Organizers said authentic tickets to Sunday's Beale Street Music Festival performances are still available, and can be purchased at the main box office, located at the intersection of Beale and Wagner just west of Front Street.

So far, no one has been arrested for selling the counterfeit tickets, but police are investigating.
