27 yr old Hamilton man accused of selling fake concert tickets and bogus vacation rentals

Hamilton Police say they have nabbed an alleged vacation rental and event ticket scammer.

Police started investigating complaints of fraudulent event ticket sales in December.

The scammer was allegedly selling fake tickets online for concerts in Toronto and Montreal.

Additionally, police were made aware of bogus cottage and apartment rentals in the Hamilton area where unsuspecting renters would pay up front but then all communication would stop.

Last month, officers executed a search warrant at an east Hamilton address to seize computers but were unable to locate the suspect.

On Wednesday, officers were able to track down and arrest the suspect.

27 year old Jacob Miranda of Hamilton is charged with Identity fraud, Fraud under $5000 and Fail to comply with probation.

Hamilton Police believe there may be other victims who have yet to come forward.
