In the US, ticket scalping is the practice of buying and reselling event tickets by private citizens, rather than by the sponsoring venue or organization, usually at a much higher price than their face value. Laws about ticket scalping vary by state, and there is no federal law that prohibits the practice. http://www.wisegeek....ing-illegal.htm
North Carolina Regulates (strong)
NCGS § 14‑344.1 Internet resellers may sell tickets above face value without a cap price unless they are prohibited from doing by the venue
I believe the NFL only prohibits scalping of tickets by NFL personnel, not private citizens, as evidenced by the Mike Tice case.
I buy 98% of my tickets through scalpers,so God bless them,but if a scalper tries to sell me a fake ticket,may he rot in hell!
