Ticket Scalping

By  | 

Ticket scalping is the age-old practice of buying tickets and reselling them for more than you paid.

While there's an ongoing debate about whether scalping should be legal...

Scalper Shawn Jackson says it's a legitimate way to make money.

"There isn't anything wrong with scalpers", said Jackson. "Here in Nebraska they act like it's a big crime but it's legal to do it here in Lincoln."

Ticket scalping is legal in Nebraska, but according to the Mayor's office, re-selling tickets on public streets or sidewalks in Lincoln is illegal.
