A conman, Jamie Keeble, 45, fleeced sports fans out of more than £60,000 in a ticket scam for tickets to Wimbledon, Six Nations and the Champions League, according to the Daily Record.

He conned at least 14 individuals into sending him money for game tickets that never arrived.

What did he do with all the money?

Keeble used it to fund his online gambling addiction.

He was ultimately jailed for five years and also received a 40-months behind bars to run concurrently for similar offences in 2012.

Detective Constable Andy Robinson said: "Keeble conducted a targeted campaign against a number of victims over a prolonged period of time.

"He offered a variety of high-value items for sale, some of which are not actually available to purchase.

"He denied everything throughout the investigation, claiming the tickets and memorabilia were genuine but that he was let down by his suppliers.

"This was a total fabrication of the truth. "He also showed no remorse at any stage, and it is unfortunate that none of the money he claimed has ever been recovered. Instead, he used it to fund his online gambling addiction.

"I hope Keeble will learn from his mistakes and resist the temptation to re-offend in the future.

"His actions have clearly had huge financial implications on his victims. "I would urge anyone who is offered any tickets or memorabilia for sale through an unrecognised source to be wary.

"Check with the venue or the supplier to confirm the seller is registered and that the goods offered are genuine.

"And if in doubt, don't buy them. If something appears too good to be true, it probably is."
