Marshfield man arrested in connection with Packers ticket scam
MARSHFIELD—37-year-old Patrick Blachut of Marshfield has been arrested in connection with the Green Bay Packers Ticket Scam. Blachut allegedly received $46,000 from a total of 15 different victims to whom he promised Packers tickets, but never delivered.
The scam has impacted individuals in Auburndale, Chippewa Falls, Fond Du Lac, Marshfield, Plover, Wausau, and Wisconsin Rapids.
Blachut has cooperated with the investigation, but a majority of the $46,000 he allegedly received could not be recovered due to his extensive losses attributed to online gambling.
A request of charges for theft by fraud will be requested through the Wood County District Attorney’s Office.
