Jay Leno Calls Marcy Woman After Hearing About Ticket Scam
Former "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno made a phone call to a Marcy woman on Monday. It was after he had read about her being scammed out of $400 worth of tickets to see his show at Turning Stone Resort Casino.
Anne Miligrano said she had paid a third-party vendor $400 for 4 $30 tickets for Leno's show at the casino. The tickets never arrived, and she bought another set the night before the show.
Leno, who apparently gets a Google alert when his name is mentioned in the news, read about her story in the Utica O-D. He then called the paper and asked how to reach Milograno. He then called her and offered her tickets and backstage passes to his next show.
The comedian told the paper that he hates to see people overcharged for tickets to his shows.
