I-Team learns of more suspected con artists taking advantage of fans, Indians

CLEVELAND, Ohio-- The FOX 8 I-Team has learned of more suspected con artists taking advantage of fans and the Indians for the World Series.

Sources say up to dozens of fans walked up to the gate for Game 6 at Progressive Field only to find out they had purchased fake tickets -- they were counterfeits.

We saw the problem before, and now even more.

Meantime, a man is sitting in the Cleveland jail under investigation for selling fake credentials, badges that allow stadium workers and others to walk into the ballpark without tickets. We've learned he sold one for $350.

Last week, the I-Team also uncovered another man arrested for selling fake credentials to Game 2 of the World Series.

A woman also got arrested for a separate credential investigation. Court records show she had a stolen Major League Baseball pass, and she actually got onto the field.

We met a Cubs fan walking in downtown Cleveland, and he told us he'd been approached about buying and selling tickets on the streets.

Police say all of this serves as a good reminder to buy tickets from the Indians or reputable brokers. And watch out for folks advertising individually on websites with phone numbers from out of state area codes.
