OKLAHOMA - Students in Stillwater allegedly sold hundreds of dollars in fake tickets.

Several are calling it a scam, and now police are involved.

It was the game of the year in Stillwater.

Bedlam was set to be a Big XII title bout, where Tiffany Cathy was almost left out.

"Of course, I start crying," Cathy said. "I'm upset."

Her story started weeks before, when Cathy bought tickets from a fellow student online.

Those tickets were ultimately denied at the gate.

"I called the guy multiple times that night," Cathy said. "He was forwarding my calls, so he had blocked my number."

However, the suspected scammer did reply on Twitter, promising multiple cashier's check that were never delivered.

"He probably felt bad, but he obviously didn't feel the need to justify it by paying me back," Cathy said.

So, Cathy took her fight to Facebook and, in a matter of minutes, she found she was not alone.

Her inbox flooded with a myriad of messages, describing an alleged scam that seemed to last the whole season.

By her count, at least ten other people bought tickets from the same student that were denied.

Cathy now hopes police can track him down.

"I think it's smart to give it to the police," she said. "He's made about $1,000 off all our tickets combined."

Stillwater police confirmed they are investigating the allegations.

Officials with Oklahoma State Athletics advise students to purchase tickets either through the ticket office or their official ticket exchange.
