Promoter Behind Lil Flip Scam Sentenced

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A Florida resident, Scott Elkins, 32 was given a year's probation and ordered to pay 16,000 dollars worth of restitution to concert-goers after Lil Flip failed to show at a festival in April of last year.

The festival, "Lil' Flip Spring Fest 2005" was held at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds last year, featuring local bands and headlined, allegedly, by the eponymous Lil' Flip, the Tribune-Star reported, yet Lil Flip never made it. Detectives later determined that Lil Flip was entirely unaware of the event. Both Elkins and an alleged accomplice named Charles Worthington left town before the show ended.

In the plea agreement filed Monday, Elkins’ felony theft charges will be lowered to class A misdemeanors, provided no further crimes are committed.

The deadline for ticket holders who want to file claims for reimbursement has been extended by six months.

Deadline extended:

— The deadline for submitting refund claims for last April’s “Lil’ Flip Spring Fest 2005” has been extended to Oct. 10.

— To be eligible for reimbursement, fill out a refund form and provide a ticket stub or other proof of purchase.

— Refund claim forms may be picked up at the prosecutor's office on the fourth floor of the Vigo County Courthouse. Those who wish to have forms mailed to them may call Sarah Mullican or Kathy Davis in the prosecutor’s office at (812) 462-3305.
