Phils Fan Offers Sex For World Series Tix
How far would you go? A woman from Pennsylvania was apparently so desperate to go to the World Series, she allegedly offered sex in exchange for the coveted tickets.
Police in a Philadelphia suburb say 43-year-old Susan Finkelstein solicited an undercover police officer to perform sex acts for tickets to the Fall Classic, starting Wednesday night in the Bronx.
The undercover officer contacted Finkelstein after seeing her ad on Craigslist, that read: "Desperate Blonde Needs WS Tix."
Police say the desperate fan asked for two tickets.
"This is just an individual that got caught up in it, I guess in the hype of the Phillies World Series, she wanted her ticket at any cost and was willing to go the extra mile," Fred Harran of the Bensalem Police Department said.
Police say the undercover officer met Finkelstein at a bar.
"She basically said that she would trade sexual favors for a Phillies ticket. She was creative, she didn't have any money. I don't know what the Series tickets are going for, but she decided that she would give herself up for some World Series tickets," Harran explained.
Finkelstein was charged with prostitution and related offenses
