Officials warn DNC visitors of hotel, ticket scams

Better Business Bureau of Southern Piedmont President Tom Bartholomy said credentials to see President Barack Obama deliver his acceptance speech at Bank of America Stadium, which were handed out recently, will likely go on sale on Craigslist and eBay. But the BBB warns that some credentials sold by third parties could be counterfeit.
Bartholomy said legitimate credentials have security features. People with fake tickets will be turned away, he said.
They are getting scammed by their party, why not by local entrepreneurs?
Counterfeit tickets to see an empty chair president. What could be more fitting?
P2 warns ‘rats of the scams run by the Dear Leader.
And the folks without proper credentials won't be allowed in to vote? I think the Democrats are suppressing the vote here. And I think women and minorities will be the most affected by this Democratic vote suppression scheme. The minorities in Carolina are mostly black. So it is just like the days of literacy tests, poll taxes and segregation at the DNC!
you need a ticket and ID to get in.. what a bunch of racists.
Folks in Charlotte need to be watchful of pickpockets, hookers and thieves of all stripes during the convention, and that’s just the delegates
Geez......they’re Democrats......they’ll put a dollars worth of quarters into a parking meter and then blame Bush when they don’t get a root beer.
A DNC convention seems a natural place for them to "congeal"...
And don’t forget the OWS crowd ... they will be there to provide entertainment for them ... as Auntie Nancy says, “I’m so proud of them (OWS). I’m sure they will have a lot to add to the convention.
Perhaps hordes of people will swarm the convention site thinking that Obama will be there handing out some Obama-stash. Wonder what happens when they realize there is no Obama stash?
HA, HA, HA!
