I Need Two

12 people were arrested last weekend on felony charges for selling counterfeit Super Bowl tickets, and 73 bogus tickets were confiscated at the gates, thanks to special scanners that were used to weed out the fakes. 23 other tickets were confiscated by Detroit Police in stings around the city.

Most counterfeit tickets were sold for an average of $1,500 each, even though their face value was $600. From Jan. 30th to Feb. 6th, authorities arrested two people and confiscated 362,355 counterfeit NFL or Super Bowl items from 22 stores.

Now that the value of tickets has exceed the $500 range, the charges get serious.
