Woman Who Scammed K-Pop Fans For Designer Bags And Accessories Charged
Just recently on November 5th, a woman who scammed K-Pop fans has been charged by the Busan District Court.
The woman sold fake tickets to concerts of popular K-Pop idol groups such as BTS and EXO since December 2017. She accumulated up to nearly around $10,000 through these scams.
One victim was reported to have been a Malaysian Shinhwa fan. The fan paid $200 and flied over to South Korea but later discovered the unfortunate news that the ticket that had been sold to her was not authentic.
The judge who passed down the sentence of 10 months in prison based his judgement on the fact that she committed the crime not for the purposes of survival but for purchasing designer bags and other fashion items.
