This man ripped off his own mom.
A businessman in Gwinnett County, Georgia by the name of Ketan Shah is nowhere to be found after finessing close to $1 Million out of people in his community, including his own mother for Super Bowl tickets that he never followed through on. The report comes courtesy of Channel 2 Action News in Georgia.
Shah allegedly promised multiple people seats in the 100-level at the Super Bowl which included some parties and exclusive access. One person paid $500,000 to Shah, while his mother gave him $36,000. When Shah never followed through, people came looking for him but he was never found. No one knows of Shah's whereabouts and people are confused given his reputation as an honest businessman.
“Right now, what we know of is just slightly over three-quarters of a million dollars scammed out for Super Bowl-related stuff,” said Cpl. Wilbert Rundles. “It’s not that he posted some ad and random people are contacting this guy for tickets and being scammed. He’s known these people for many years. One of them, he’s known his whole life because it’s his own mother, and he’s taken advantage of them.”
Rundles also added that they are actively searching for Shah and want to hear his side of the story to see if he might be in danger and that's why he did what he did. If the tickets aren't delivered to those he ran away from by Sunday, Shah could face some pretty serious charges.
