The NYPD has arrested several people this week in possession of counterfeit Super Bowl tickets. "No matter how good the tickets look, no matter how sophisticated they are, they will not get you into the stadium on game day, " said Anastasia Danias, senior vice president of legal affairs for the NFL. "Be really careful about buying them for cash, from someone on the street... we know counterfeits are getting better and we know they're getting more sophisticated."
Police arrested a Bronx man who had 124 tickets, at an estimated street value of $113,000. He's facing charges of grand larceny and trademark counterfeiting.
