A trio of Pittsburghers has been accused by state authorities of running a ticket selling scam out of the Benedum Center Box Office. Vaughn Davis (54), Madge Hayes (47) and Patrick Conderato (38) are charged with theft and computer crimes. The three allegedly stole tickets and resold them on various Internet sites. They also allegedly used customer credit card numbers to purchase additional tickets that they later resold. The investigation began after a customer was denied entrance to a show because the tickets he had purchased online had been reported missing by the original buyer.
