It seems like with every major sporting or music event, we hear a story about some poor sap who fell for fake ticket scam.
Unlike most stories, however, this one has a happy ending!
San Francisco 49ers fan Sharon Osgood couldn’t have been more excited when she purchased four Super Bowl tickets off of Craigslist.
In the ad, the seller explained he couldn’t use his season tickets for the game because his wife was pregnant. Osgood wired the seller $5,900 after going back and forth with several emails, phone calls, and text messages.
When the FedEx package arrived, she was shocked and heartbroken to find a note saying, “Go Ravens! LOL!”
The story started going viral and once Ticketmaster CEO Nathan Hubbard heard about it, he not only offered her four tickets to the big game, but also a breakfast with NFL legend Troy Aikman.
But wait…there’s more! The San Jose Mercury News reports that the 49ers also gave Osgood another ticket to go along with her 4-pack.
Seriously, how awesome is that? Group hug, everybody!
