Some Want Big Money For Their Free Tickets To See The Pope
Tickets to see Pope Francis when he comes to the U.S. were handed out for free, but some ticket receivers are now scalping them on Craigslist.By Katherine Biek | September 18, 2015
With Pope Francis making his first visit to the U.S. Sept. 22, people have been clamoring for months to get tickets to see the head of the Catholic Church.
But with the pope only in the country for six days, there are a limited number of tickets. They are mostly being doled out in a lottery system by church officials in Washington, D.C., New York City and Philadelphia.
Some who were lucky enough to receive these free tickets, are now turning around and selling them for a high price on sites like Craigslist.
