To all those looking for Ohio State-Michigan tickets in the near future, beware.
According to the Columbus Dispatch, a woman looking for tickets to the highly anticipated slugfest between the Buckeyes and Wolverines allegedly was scammed by a man who claimed he could sell her tickets to the game on Nov. 26.
The man, whom police have identified as 66-year-old Martin Alper and arrested on charges of theft by deception, allegedly offered to sell her tickets for $100 with a $20 advance payment in August under a fake name. When the woman made the $20 payment, she arranged a meeting with Alper to obtain the tickets. Alper failed to show up, prompting the woman to call the police.
Apler has been charged with felony ticket scams before in 2007.
Columbus police are looking for more possible victims of Ohio State ticket scams or deception, and urge those with any additional information to contact Columbus police.
