Jackson Memorial Tickets


Tickets for Michael Jackson's concerts went for thousands of dollars, now people are exploiting his death, trying to get similar amounts for his memorial service.

On eBay, bids for tickets for Tuesday's event were reaching as high as $1,000 and $3,000, though it was impossible to verify the seriousness of those bids. Others on Monday were submitting offers more in the $100-$200 range. eBay is now trying to shutdown anyone who try to sell tickets to this event.

On Craigslist, asking prices also were in the thousands. Some unable to attend, though, simply wanted to give away their tickets — as one post read — "to only true fans."

The memorial service will be held at Los Angeles' Staples Center. More than 1.6 million fans registered online for a chance to attend, and only 8,750 names were chosen — each of whom received two tickets.
