Opening ceremony for black market for the tickets of Rio 2016!

Brazilian police arrested ten members of a black-market ring who tried to scalp tickets for the Rio Olympic Games, even before the actual tickets are issued. Rio de Janeiro police earlier said the suspects were involved in a scam to resell over 700 legitimately acquired ticket vouchers – soon to be exchanged for the actual tickets – at many times their face value.

It is illegal in Brazil to resell tickets for more than their initial sale price, and Rio 2016 ticket holders could face fines of up to 100 times the ticket face value if caught scalping. The ten members, nine of whom were from São Paulo and the other from Rio, could face up to two years in jail, police investigators said.
