The article reports that a federal jury in Miami convicted an event promoter of swindling elementary school children out of a Christmas show in December 2003. Students and teachers in Miami-Dade County schools were told that the show would be a unique opportunity, and at least 2,700 pupils and teachers from 20 schools paid $10 per person for tickets, according to the U.S. attorney's office in Miami. But when the first group of students arrived for the show at the Coconut Grove Convention Center on the morning of December 3, 2003, they found the building locked. At the trial, educators and law-enforcement officials from Utah testified that children there had been victimized by a similar scheme.
