Find out how Falcon’s fans were scammed into fake Super Bowl package
Some Atlanta Falcons fans are upset after they paid their money for a bus trip to Houston, but the bus never showed up. Fans were even more upset when the woman who organized the trip showed up in Houston.
Carolyn Freeman is known as the Bird Lady. She is the unofficial mascot of the Falcons.
She said she is not the bad person people are making her out to be. “I know I’m a good person. People love me. Even though people try and turn on me and be mad right now,” Freeman told said Tom Jones Falcons fans are turning on her because many of them believe she turned on them. Freeman organized a bus trip from Atlanta to Houston for Falcons fans. Some people signed up for packages that included event tickets and hotel rooms. When fans showed up Wednesday to head to Houston, there was no bus, no tickets and no hotel rooms. Freeman says it wasn’t her fault. “I got lied to and I got scammed,” she said, near tears. Freeman said a friend told her about a man who wanted her to be the face of the bus trip. Her face is on the flyer.
But she says fans paid him for the trip–through his website–and she had nothing to do with the money. Freeman said now he won’t return her calls.
