A 37 year old man only known as Mr. Han, was been arrested by the Seoul Guro Polic Station for selling fake k pop concert tickets. Since 2012, Mr. Han set up websites that sold fake tickets to k pop concerts which artists include, EXO, INFINITE, BTS and more.
Mr. Han would have buyers purchase the tickets in advance online and upload a picture of an actually purchased ticket with the dates edited as their confirmation. As soon as he received his victims' money, he would close the website and then cut off all contact. Mr. Han would elude the police by moving to different motels and saunas across Seoul and the city of Gwangmyeong.
In the end, Mr. Han made 28 million won (approx. $26,000 USD) off 170 people. The Seoul Guro Police Station commented, "We plan to investigate whether there were more victims as Mr. Han's crime method was very calculated and detailed."
