    Has anyone else been taken by a person that claims to be a former Gator football player. I attempted to purchase tickets from Geoff Pappas (he has posted on all Gator Facebook pages and Craigslist) and never received the tickets. Just wondered if he does this regularly or if anyone else has lost money to this fraud.

    LinkedIn has him as a business consultant in Jacksonville. You can email him thru LinkedIn website. He played in the 1988 Orange and Blue game.

    He is also on Facebook as Geoff Thomas Pappas and has posted tickets for the upcoming season on every Facebook local chapter website, but he has now blocked me from seeing or commenting on all of the sites. I emailed all of the local chapters with a warning for their members, but many have not posted the warning. I just don't want any other families to be cheated out of tickets like me. I ended up buying tickets to the game from the UT athletic department, so my autistic son was able to see the game...I just had to pay for 2 sets of tickets. I have talked to him several times since this (via email and text) and he tells me that he has heart issues and lost his job. So, I guess he expects others to pay his bills via his fraudulent story and access to tickets. I was hoping to hear from others that may have been taken by him so that the authorities would take my (and anyone else's) loss seriously.
