INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - While ChuckSrong wristbands were being handed out for donations Sunday, similar-looking ones were being sold outside the stadium. But they were fake.
An off duty officer working the Colts game came upon a man selling the phony wristbands for $1. He said he worked for the American Cancer Society.
The officer, Brian Hedger, took the man’s I.D. and phony wristbands.
“These guys are out in the area defrauding people to make a profit,” Hedger said. “I’m pretty angry about it because they (are) out there doing it for personal gain.”
One type of wristband is being sold at Colts Pro Shops. Another was handed out at Sunday’s game by IU Health for donations.
