Police warn of SU-Georgetown fake ticket scam
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - It's a game that promises to draw a record crowd at the Carrier Dome: SU hosts Georgetown February 23.
It will be the last time the two rivals will meet during regular season Big East play at the Dome.
You may have already purchased tickets, but Syracuse Police are warning: buyer beware.
Police have arrested a suspect they say is selling phony tickets and they fear there are a lot of victims.
26-year-old Harry Levy of James St. in Syracuse faces 5 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument.
Police say they've found two victims who purchased tickets to the game on Craigslist that turned out to be fake.
Police fear there are many more people who purchased tickets from this person and will be turned away upon visiting the Dome on game day.
If you believe you may have been a victim of this scam, police want you to call them at 442-5222.
