Young woman who scammed fans with fake concert tickets receives sentence

misc.
A young woman who scammed fans with fake K-pop concert tickets received her sentence.

On November 5, judge Song Joong Ho of Busan District Court announced the 23-year-old woman has been sentenced to 10 months of penal servitude for the scam. 


For 7 months starting from December 2017, the woman made online posts claiming she has concert tickets for various artists including BTS, EXO, Shinhwa, Na Hoon Ah, and more. She sold the fake concert tickets a total of 63 times and obtained a profit of 11,140,000 KRW (9,900 USD). 



One of the victims is a Malaysian fan, who flew over to Korea to attend Shinhwa's concert. The fan paid 220,000 KRW (196 USD) for the fake tickets. 

Judge Song found the young woman guilty and stated, "Her sin is heavy because the money obtained from the scam was not for survival purposes but to buy brand name bags, wallets, and cosmetic products."

Considering that Iron got only a year of jail time for having assaulted and blackmailed his girlfriend, this lady got a pretty heavy sentence

10 month is enough, considering she only scammed 10000US to get the rest of her career utterly ruined.

Damn what a hustle. Scam artists get a very lenient time in prison. I expected a year or a year and a half sentence but ten months is nothing. She'll do it again when she comes out. Maybe not the same way, but she'll do something to earn easy money again.

Why not? Imo she has every right to earn money with the stupidity of people. Why are people stupid? There is no reason to pay for overpriced fake tickets. Every sane person knows you shouldnt do that. Whoever does this anyway deserves to be damaged. If those judges would know any fairness they would rather send those moronic fans into jail, until their stupidity is cured.
