Unsuspecting Tourists?

Osceola Theme Park Ticket Scheme Busted
The bust took place over four days, and 14 people were arrested for reselling theme park tickets to unsuspecting tourists. The tickets that were sold were multi-day tickets to attractions like Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios. The suspects would buy tickets that still had a few days left on them and resell them to visitors for a "discounted price."

Worker Tries Reselling Multiday Theme Park Tickets
When tourists see they can sell their unused tickets for cash, many jump at the chance, said police.
Most of the tourists buying these tickets know what they are doing. I get asked all the time where these tickets can be bought and I warn them every time that it is illegal and they should buy the tickets at the park or on the official website of the park. THEY DON'T CARE. They buy them anyway. They come down here with the intention of buying cheaper tickets outside the park, illegal or not, and it's been going on for years. Sure, when they are caught they claim they had no idea, but I assure you in most cases that is not so. I have worked within earshot of some of these booths and I have heard the explanation of what to do and how. They know.
