2 W.Va. men charged in Lady Gaga concert scam
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - May 7, 2010 -- Two men face charges of scamming fans of Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert by selling tickets for a bogus concert in West Virginia.
Martinsbug Police say 45-year-old Sherman Luke Loy and 45-year-old Dean R. DeSana turned themselves in separately Friday and were released on bond.
Each was charged with one count of obtaining money by false pretenses. Loy's lawyer says the tickets started at $100.
According to a criminal complaint, the men claimed the concert would be held April 24 at a park near Harpers Ferry. The concert never happened.
Court records show 11 people filed police reports saying they paid for tickets but never received them.
Police say ticket sales totaled more than $17,800.
Loy and DeSana have denied the charges.
