According to DailyMail.co.uk, a man who claimed to be the drummer for WHITESNAKE is accused of defrauding a pensioner out of nearly £100,000 (approximately $158,000).
Scott Travis, 44, allegedly told the man his name was Franco and that he was set to get £1.7 million from his mother’s will
Travis also told one of his sisters, Angela Sutcliffe, he would play drums with WHITESNAKE at a concert at the Manchester Arena in 2002. He sent her tickets, but never appeared on stage.
Sutcliffe said his girlfriend had later called to apologize, saying he didn’t have the proper performing license.
