Police issue warrant for ticket scammer

Gold Coast police have issued warrants for the arrest of Erika Ann Silvester, 23, who twice in two weeks failed to front up to the Southport Magistrates Court.

She faces ten charges of advertising tickets for music festivals on online classifieds site Gumtree, getting thousands of dollars and sending ticket reference numbers which later proved to be false.

Silvester was due to face the Southport Magistrates Court last month on nine charges of fraud committed between June and July this year.

The mother of two was charged with two counts of fraud in 2009 when she pleaded guilty to withdrawing $2000 using a credit card she stole from an ex-flatmate.
