ATLANTA: A leading Indian American businessman in Atlanta area has allegedly swindled many Super Bowl lovers thousands of dollars as part of a very well thought out ticket scam that involved promise of selling tickets but not delivering them at all.
48-year-old Ketan Shah of Lawrenceville was arrested at a California casino and has been charged with felony theft by conversion. He is alleged to have duped half a dozen people by offering to sell Super Bowl tickets.

By the time the police began investigating the case; Shah just disappeared and was reportedly travelling to different places. He was reported as a missing person, showed up at his home after going to Las Vegas in a “mid-life crisis” and disappeared again.
According to the Police, at least six people – one who is said to be Shah’s own mother – reported that Ketan offered to sell them Super Bowl tickets $5000 a piece. Gwinnett Police discovered that Shah had traveled to different places like Florida, Alabama, New Mexico but was eventually arrested when a casino worker in Riverside, California recognized him and reported him to the local sheriff’s office.

The casino worker recognized Shah’s face after seeing a news story about an alleged Super Bowl ticket scam. He became suspicious when Shah began purchasing expensive gifts with large amounts of cash for the woman he was with. Shah was allegedly gambling with his victims’ money, including his mother’s, at the time of his arrest.
Shah is in custody in California pending extradition back to Gwinnett County. He was active in community affairs being a director of the Georgia Indo-American Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber website says that Shah has been suspended from its board of directors and added that it has no connection to the alleged scheme.
