Beware of fake concerts on the Southcoast! This local jerk is charged with advertising and selling tickets to a fake concert by R&B singer Will Downing, according to Westport Police.

Allen Ganeto, 61, thought he had a fool proof plan, but is now charged with larceny by check and larceny by false pretenses over $250. The guy even made concert posters, printed tickets with the singer’s photo on them and sold somewhere around 50 tickets for the event, which was to happen last Saturday night at White’s of Westport, the fake tickets were sold for $47 and $27 each.

Police said about 30 people showed up for the concert on Saturday and were turned away, then White’s alerted them to a possible scam after a man booked an event with a check from a closed account. The entertainer’s agent and learned Downing was scheduled to perform Saturday night at an inaugural ball for President Barack Obama, said Detective Sgt. Antonio J. Cestodio, public information officer for the Westport Police Department.
