Scam Lee Roth

(BW&BK) One sure way to lose money in the concert business is to pay an advance deposit to a scam artist posing as a booking agent. These frauds are not uncommon and are generally low priority matters when reported to police.

Such is the case with a con man posing as the agent for DAVID LEE ROTH. At least three different U.S. nightclubs were taken in by the scam and two of them, including The Venue in Scottsdale, Ariz., lost thousands of dollars in deposits.

Diamond Dave switched his representation in May from CAA to Monterey International where Garry Buck is the responsible agent. The scammer appears to be working out of the Chicago area and has used a variety of names. Much to the real agent's chagrin, he has even claimed to be "Gary Buck."[see full story for more] - Click here for the Full Story
