Con Artist Feigns AC/DC Connection To Scam Thousands Out Of Festival Organizer

A con artist claiming to have ties to the management company representing AC/DC has apparently tricked the organizers of Finland's Pori Jazz festival into believing that AC/DC would perform at the event if he was paid a fee of 50,000 euros (approximately $49,000). As it turned out, the man had no connection with the band at all and the Pori Jazz Festival ended up losing the money due to the actions of a small-time crook.
