Last week, Sharon Osgood said she was disappointed that resale prices for tickets to Super Bowl XLVII were averaging more than three grand a pop. The 49ers fan eventually found someone on Craigslist who was offering four seats for $5,900, about double face value but she still copped.
Osgood said she chatted for a week with dude, who said he was a Ravens season-ticket holder. She then wired money to his credit union. Mistake…
Via DeadSpin reports:
“On Monday, the highly anticipated package arrived—by FedEx.
Instead of Super Bowl tickets, inside was a picture of quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick and Joe Flacco with a message underneath that read: “Enjoy the game!!!! Go Ravens!!! LOL.”
The scam artist told the couple he was a corporate tax attorney living in Boca Raton, Fla., and his wife was eight months pregnant, which was why they couldn’t go to the game themselves.
“For a week I was on the phone with this guy,” Osgood said. “That’s the only reason why we” trusted him.
