Disney Ticket Scammer Busted!

Disney Ticket Scammer Busted!

CBS Los Angeles is reporting that a quick-thinking woman helped them catch a man of selling fake Disneyland tickets.

 

Authorities have identified the suspect as Jonathan E. Olsen, 26.

The women who helped police said she met the suspect via Craigslist.  After she met the suspect at a local restaurant, she took a picture of his license plate. When she confirmed the tickets to be fake a few days later, she notified police.

Olsen was on parole at the time and was arrested at his home.  Officials said they found additional fake Disneyland tickets and drug paraphernalia in Olsen’s home.

Olsen was reportedly selling the tickets at $40 off the typical rates for similar tickets.  The old saying “If it seems to good to be true” comes to mind.

“Olsen reported he had originally stolen the inactivated tickets from a store prior to selling them on Craigslist,” Scott said.

He was to be booked for suspicion of petty theft and suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also held on a probation violation at the Costa Mesa Police Department Jail prior to transfer to the Orange County Jail, the police sergeant said.

Costa Mesa police detectives are asking anyone who might have also been victimized by the ticket scam to call them at (714) 754-5637.

About Rick Killingsworth

Rick visited the Magic Kingdom in 1971 for the first Christmas parade in their history. At nine years old, he was bitten by the Disney Bug. He can still remember the sights, the smells, and the sounds. It truly was magical. It would be twenty years before he could afford to take his young family back to “The World.” It was the vacation of a lifetime, and they have been fortunate to go hundreds of times since. His daughters, now grown, still tear up when they see the castle (as does he).
