LOS ANGELES – Enticing, the reduced prices may have seemed to those scammed by fake amusement park tickets sold on Craigslist by a San Gabriel Valley man.
Five people were scammed by the Craigslist ads posted by 43-year-old, Pasadena resident, Brian Edward Anderton who was offering Disneyland tickets for sale.
Anderton collected over $2400 from the victims between January and August 2016, officials said. The victims were unaware of the scam until they arrived at the amusement park and were told that the tickets were not valid.
Anderton was charged on Thursday with five counts of grand theft of personal property and petty theft. If convicted as charged, Anderton will face up to five years in prison.
