Two Men Accused of Forging Super Bowl Tickets In New York City
Two New York men are accused of producing forgeries of Super Bowl tickets and other NFL tickets and trying to sell them.
According to the Wall Street Journal, New York City police charged the men Tuesday in a scheme to forge NFL tickets and parking passes for several playoff games, including the Super Bowl, using a computer, a printer and photo paper. They then sold the tickets on the internet and on the streets of New York City.
Some fans who purchased Super Bowl tickets, "may be in for a rude awakening on game day," Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement.
A spokeswoman for the district attorney declined to say how many counterfeit tickets may have been sold. An NFL spokesman said,
It is buyer beware for fans who are not purchasing tickets directly from the NFL or teams.
