Indonesian Mötley Crüe fans were bilked out of an estimated $60,000 in ticket sales for a non-existent gig publicized by a fake concert promoter. More than 1,500 people purchased tickets for about $40 each before the scam was revealed by the Jakarta Globe, a local English-language newspaper.

After learning of the scam, the members of Mötley Crüe issued a statement on their website clarifying that they had no plans to perform in Jakarta or anywhere else in Indonesia. A police investigation into the ticket scam is underway, but Central Jakarta district police chief Lt. Col. Angesta Romano Yoyol told the Associated Press that there are no suspects.
