A parking scam has left a bunch of concert goers, who thought they were doing a charitable thing, hundreds of dollars out of pocket.

The Foo Fighters fans were dup'd by a man offering 20 dollar parking outside a charity, near Mount Smart stadium on Saturday night.

Turns out he was not legit and concert goers returned to the spot post concert to find their vehicles had been towed for illegal parking.

One concert goer had to pay about four hundred dollars in fees to get his car back from the enforcement company.
