Providence Man Attempts To Throw Fake Concert, Dupes People Into Buying Tickets
40 people showed up to White's of Westport on Saturday night for a concert that wasn't going to happen.
According to Fall River's Herald News,61-year-old Allen Ganeto duped people out of their money for a concert that didn't even exist. The alleged concert was supposed to by by well known blues musician Will Downing, but Downing was not there.
Westport police say that Ganeto attempted to sell the tickets for $27 and $47. White's of Westport became suspicious when the $700 check he wrote them for the use of the room was written from a closed account. Ganeto blames a business partner. Westport police believe that Ganeto just set up a scheme to get money from people.
