Philly Man Charged with Counterfeiting Super Bowl Tickets
Philadelphia, just 90 minutes away from Super Bowl XLVIII, had to make its mark on the big game somehow. Philadelphia man Eugene Fladger, along with a co-conspirator from New York, have been charged with hawking fake Super Bowl tickets.
Besides the Super Bowl, authorities say blocks of high-quality fake tickets were sold on the Internet for the AFC championship in Boston and the NFC Wild Card game in Philadelphia. They say other forged tickets were offered for the NFL Commissioner’s Party at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan; the NFL Honors Party at Radio City Music Hall; and Super Bowl parking.
