Don't believe the hype. If you see this flyer or hear about this show, it's a scam.

A concert con-artist has been selling New Yorkers tickets to a hip-hop show at a local casino. There’s only one problem: the show isn’t happening.

Fans of rap artist Trey Songz and Caribbean pop artist Julien Believe will be disappointed to find out that their $45 to $100 tickets to a July 30 show at the Resorts World Casino in Jamaica are fake.

“FRAUD ALERT: WE HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED OF A FALSE PROMOTION OF A JULY 30TH CONCERT BY ‘TREY SONGZ AND JULIEN BELIEVE’.  NEITHER RESORTS WORLD NOR TREY SONGZ HAS AUTHORIZED THIS EVENT. THE POLICE HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED OF THIS FRAUD. PLEASE CONTACT THE POLICE IF YOU ARE A VICTIM,” Resorts World Casino posted on their website.

According to a flyer informing the community of the supposed “concert,” New Yorkers can purchase advance tickets to the show by calling 310-853-8209. QNS left a message for the scammer. He/she has yet to respond.

“It’s unfortunate what some people use their precious time to do,” Caribbean pop artist Julien Believe told QNS. “It’s just wrong to take advantage of people like this. I hope they find the persons responsible and that situations like this never occur again!”

Police are investigating the fake concert promotion and are encouraging anyone who may have been scammed to reach out to the authorities.

Those still in the mood for a hip-hop show can attend the concert at Resorts World on Saturday. They will be holding a “Freestyle Takedown” featuring numerous artists. Don’t worry; this one is the real deal.
