I want to believe in people and give them the benefit of the doubt but what if the "victim" concocted this whole story just to get free SB tickets. I don't like it that I'm jaded enough towards people in order to make that leap in the first place.
It's also possible that this was not a scam, and the tickets were stolen by a FedEx employee. My father had NY Giants season tickets stolen from the mail years ago. At every game, someone showed up holding the stolen tickets; they said they bought them from someone in Brooklyn.
