Playing it Safe
Last December, 211 football fans expected to see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the visiting Dallas Cowboys. Most of them had a nice view of Raymond James Stadium—from the outside.
According to ABC Action News, two men drove to Tampa with a large stack of high quality, counterfeit tickets. Charging an average price of $100 per fraudulent ticket, the men managed to sell 211 of them until caught by two undercover police officers posing as fans in need of tickets. The men had possession of 14 tickets when discovered. The remaining 184 fake tickets were recovered in the Buccaneers ticket office.
