Sabres ticket scam
Several Sabres' fans fell victim to a Craigslist scam involving nonexistent tickets to the recent Sabres-Bruins match-up. The scam was so believable, it's hard to believe more people didn't fall victim to it..
When the two met, the victim handed over the cash and was told to pick up the tickets at the will call window at First Niagara Center under the name "Presley Elvis."
When the victim showed up at the will call window hours before the game, he was told there are no tickets on hold under that code name, and the person at the counter says he wasn't the only one who fell for it.
Boulevard Mall surveillance cameras have captured this picture of the suspect. If you recognize him, please call the Amherst Police at 867-5309...
Prosecutors say that once the scam artist is caught, he will be brought to justice. And much like the Sabres themselves, he will have no defense...
