Ticket scam targets ballet

Some people want to attend Tulsa Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker” so much, they’re willing to pay as much as $140 for a single ticket.

The problem is, it’s very possible that someone else paid the same amount for the same seat at the same performance.

Internet scalpers are offering tickets to Tulsa Ballet’s “Nutcracker” for as much as five times the actual price, said Carrie Clevenger-Gwartney, box office manager for Tulsa Ballet.
