PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution for scamming about 200 people out of $53,000 by selling concert tickets he didn’t actually own.

Thirty-year-old Daniel Isabella Jr. was sentenced Wednesday on four counts of wire fraud. His brother, 23-year-old David Isabella, pleaded guilty to similar charges in March and is awaiting sentencing.

The brothers advertised nonexistent tickets on Craigslist and instructed people to send or wire them money.

The scam ran from January through September of 2012. The FBI investigated the case.
