    so... what was the scam? I mean, what was the scam about?
    Were the people banned from entering/buying the tickets in the first place?
    gotta give some more information.
    It doesn't even sound like a scam.

    You, you are the reason I am *petrified* of getting close to friends... I know I'll get a phone call saying "they were found [in a really bad situation]"... I mean, I'm petrified pet cat/dog will get hit by car/stolen because they are a silly cat/dog... but people? People? I am petrified every time I talk to them... that they will tell me about a "plan" they have where everything goes catastrophically deadly.

    Save yourself 9 minutes. Ticket scalpers paid college kids to enter a ticket lottery. She won and bought the tickets on behalf of the scalpers who were likely banned from buying tickets.

  • Marsha Hare

    They needed the ID's because there must have been a lottery or contest to determine who was allowed to purchase those "special" tickets, they took the ID to enter everyone. They were probably for box seats or significant games, she probably could have made way more if she kept the tickets and scalped them herself.
