LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police are warning people about a crook who sells phony tickets to Disneyland.

He's taken in several people since March and netted thousands of dollars.

Investigators say the scam artist offers the tickets through Craigslist for about half the admission price.

Victims arrange to meet the man in downtown Los Angeles and he permits them to photograph his driver's license, which convinces them that he's legitimate.

Then they hand over the money and receive a bunch of useless tickets.
