Alleged Ticket Scammer Waives Hearing

The Bradford woman accused of running a concert ticket scam on Craigslist has waived her preliminary hearing.

37-year-old Menda Lechiara is accused of posting on Craigslist that she had tickets for Big Time Rush and One Direction concerts for sale, when she didn’t actually have the tickets, according to court papers.

She was contacted by four people who wanted the tickets. She was caught on CVS Pharmacy surveillance video picking up money for the tickets.

She’s free on unsecured bail.
