CEO’s Goodwill Gesture Offsets Cruel Ticket Scam  January 30, 2013 – 10:07 pm
Sharon Osgood was the victim of a cruel ticket scam

The story is a familiar one. Tickets to an event are so highly sought after that would-be buyers seek them from unauthorized outlets. When the event is Super Bowl XLVII that lapse in judgement is almost understandable. But thanks to the CEO of Ticketmaster this particular story has a happy ending.

San Francisco 49ers fan Sharon Osgood couldn’t afford the price of Super Bowl tickets being sold from the authorized outlets. Rather than miss her beloved team’s appearance in the biggest game of the year, Osgood agreed to an offer made by a ticket re-seller she found on Craigslist. The re-seller claimed he was unable to attended the game and would sell the tickets to Osgood for $6, 000. Following the re-seller’s instructions,  Osgood wired the money to a bank account in Florida.

The transaction turned out to be a scam and a rather cruel one at that. Mike Rosenberg of the San Jose Mercury News writes of the elaborate hoax.

After emailing, texting and talking with the seller on the phone for a week, they wired the money to his credit union. On Monday, the highly anticipated package arrived by FedEx. Instead of Super Bowl tickets, inside was a picture of quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick and Joe Flacco with a message underneath that read: “Enjoy the game!!!! Go Ravens!!!

Part of an explanation with scriptures:

"The doctrine of the Trinity — that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are each equally and eternally the one true God — is admittedly difficult to comprehend, and yet is the very foundation of Christian truth. Although skeptics may ridicule it as a mathematical impossibility, it is nevertheless a basic doctrine of Scripture as well as profoundly realistic in both universal exp...Trinity is evident in such a verse as John 15:26, where the Lord Jesus said:
“But when the Comforter is come whom I will send unto you from the Father, He shall testify of me.”
Then there is the baptismal formula:
“baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 28:19).
