FBI Targets NJ Scalpers

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office have teamed up to open a $5 million anti-Internet-fraud crime lab to nail ticket scalpers, according to United Press International.

Ticketmaster’s recent onsale for Bruce Springsteen‘s May 19th show in East Rutherford, which sold out in minutes, prompted the move.

Two days after the onsale, the coveted ducats were being sold on ticketsnow.com for nearly $3,000 a pop, UPI said.
