At least it has a semi-happy ending… full story at The Smoking Gun:

A wealthy tech executive who wanted to book Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to perform at his wedding reception as a “gift” to his new wife was swindled out of $165,000 by a Las Vegas man who masqueraded as a concert booking agent, The Smoking Gun has learned.

In early-April, with his wedding just three months away, Valentine (pictured at left) contacted Petty’s management company to “discuss the booking.” In an e-mail, Dimitriades broke the bad news: “We have never heard of Chris Lund or his agency. We are not aware of any deal for Tom Petty to play Seattle in July and I have never signed a contract for any such.” He added, “It looks like you have been defrauded.”
