I heard about this guy all during Superbowl week.  He apparently scammed hundreds of Eagles fans in their attempt to watch the birds in Superbowl XXXIX.  The creep served 15 months in prison for similar scam crimes, and now he did it again.  He must be a real genius.  He advertised his packages on 610 WIP and I actually remember hearing some of the spots.  Then during Superbowl week, fans were calling up from Jacksonville complaining to 610 about the scam.  Some fans even paid this guy up to 5 grand for a ticket, never got one from him, then paid another 3-5 grand on top of that to buy a replacement ticket.  I was going to do the same, but I spent all my money on my new Benz.
