Young Money Promo Imposters Scam Drake Fans

Urban Islandz NEWS: Scammers once again turn their attention on Drake fans by tricking them to purchase tickets for a series of shows in Pennsylvania.

According to reports, the scammers posed as the Young Money star and his management team. But the management at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg says the two shows scheduled for late May were bogus from the start.

Theater president Richard Berkowitz says he began sniffing out the scheme when the Virginia-based booking agency began asking for a cut of the ticket sales. Berkowitz says the matter has been referred to authorities. The theater says a number of other promoters have been victims of similar scams. The theater canceled the non-existent shows Monday and said it would refund the cost of the sold-out tickets.
