HOUSTON A Houston radio station has come to the rescue of a mom and her 7-year-old daughter who were devastated to learn their Justin Bieber concert tickets are fake.
Yajaira Covarrubias is a single mother of two who decided to splurge on the tickets because her daughter, MaKayla, is a big Bieber fan.
She found the tickets on Craigslist and agreed to meet the buyer at The Woodlands Mall. A man who said his name was Michael Miller sold her the tickets for $300.
When Covarrubias saw a story on KHOU about a Fort Worth grandmother who boughtbogus Bieber tickets from a man with the same name, she got worried. She quickly discovered her tickets were fake, too, and the seats listed on them don t even exist at Toyota Center.
You re messing with a little girl s dreams, Covarrubias said.
After employees at HOT 95.7 saw our story, they invited Covarrubias and her daughter to their studio. They also surprised them with a gift: two real tickets to Bieber s concert and an autographed CD.
MaKayla, clearly overwhelmed, simply smiled and said thank you.
MaKayla and her mom will appear on The Hot Show on HOT 95.7 at around 7:30 Friday morning.
Police are still trying to track down the man who s been selling the fake tickets.
