KEITH URBAN BENEFIT SCAMMER CAUGHT

Last weekend in Nashville, Big & Rich, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Troy Gentry, Lee Ann Womack, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Wynonna and Katrina Elam were among the artists who donated their time for Keith Urban's sold-out annual benefit concert, "Max It Out for Meningitis." The benefit raised over $270,000. There was also a scam artist who tried to benefit from the concert - a woman who sold 18 fake tickets on eBay for $500 each, according to event director Jill Royka. Concert organizers found her and now she's offering refunds, but there's even another alleged fraudulent ticket seller in the U.K. In fact, eBay said in a three-week period of time, this event holds the record for most fraudulent ticket sale attempts ever. "You wouldn't believe the amount of time we've spent on the phone trying to tell people their tickets are fake and trying to help them get their money back," Jill told The Tennessean.
