Police arrested a man who stole money from and deceived EXO fans who were looking to purchase concert tickets. The man, age 37, was arrested by the Seoul Guro police office on the charge of repeated frauds to numerous victims, most of whom were female high school students.
On his blog, the criminal wrote fake notifications of sales for EXO concert tickets, earning over $20,000 USD from 170 different victims in the last 2 years.
The man, acknowledging the high demand for EXO’s concert tickets, repeatedly committed fraud over a long period of time but was finally caught, thanks to the police officers. It is not surprising to see such star-related crimes now, as frauds including EXO have happened previously as well.
