Missing Georgia man allegedly stole nearly $1M in Super Bowl ticket scam

If you bought your Super Bowl tickets in Gwinnett County this year, it's probably worth double-checking whether they're real.

 

As Atlanta's WSB-TV reported Thursday, roughly a dozen Georgians have accused a prominent businessman in that area of collecting nearly $1 million from fraudulent Super Bowl ticket sales. The same man has been missing -- reported by his wife -- since earlier this month, according to Channel 2's Nicole Carr, and has also been accused of theft through the ticket scam by his own mother.

 

Ketan Shah, the man accused of selling fake tickets, owns a digital printing shop near the Atlanta metropolitan area. And community members have called his business "squeaky-clean," per Carr. But Shah has yet to be found since allegedly racking up thousands of dollars in ticket sales, with several locals, including Shah's mother, contacting police about his apparent scam.

Come on with the clickbait title. "Man trades life for 1m". It makes it sound like a guy died in exchange for 1 mllion dollars.

 

More appropriate title might be something like "Businessman sells $1 million in fake superbowl tickets and then disappears"

Willing to bet he got clipped and didn't disappear to some island. He defrauded a lot of people. It only takes 1. Playing with fire and most likely got burned for it. A million dollars in 2019 isn't retire to hidden luxury for the rest of your life type money anymore.

The title is my perspective. A man who disappears on his wife, and defrauds his own mother doesn't have much of a life left anymore. The money will run out one day but he will have to live with the guilt and shame and all for a measly 1M. Not impressed.

Traded his past life for a new one you mean.

 

If he's smart, he'll go live on a tropical island after buying a new identity.  He's from Georgia though; they'll likely find him near penniless in a casino or something just as ridiculous.

I wonder how much other debt he leveraged on his printing business too?:lol: on a beach in Vietnam or some other non-US extradition country.

You're pretty good at distorting the perspective as we all know, now you can quote me on this so Jimmy can see it, or PM him, whichever.

yeah, I dont know about that. I think a lot of guys are more than ok with this kind of thing. My uncle knew a guy who was the manager of a chain grocery store, and the guy had the stones to install an extra checkout line that chain didn't know about :lol: got away with it for months, no one really knows how much he made.

That depends on your age and where you're willing to live.  Even if you're young-ish and want to stay in a relatively developed country, if you're smart and assume a new identity, it's pretty good seed money to start your life over again.

If he's a sociopath, shame and guilt will never make it's way into the equation.
