eBay Wages War with Jackson Ticket Scalpers

7/6/2009 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sales for tickets to attend the King of Pop's final farewell are running rampant on sites like eBay, but watch out before you put in a bid -- the company is removing tickets sales from the site as fast as possible.

MIchael Jackson

We got a screen grab of a pair of tickets that already cost $10,000 (kind of them to offer free shipping) -- but the link was disabled shortly after we found it.

Incredibly expensive and hard to get? Good luck...

It is disgusting that someone would try to make a killing on tickets for a funeral. Some people have no values or morals.

Profile of a child molester........sound familiar???


Have been abused as children themselves
Be Sexually attracted to children (most can't or won't resist these urges)
Find positions where children are available (leader of children's clubs, ministries, etc., coaches, camp counselors & chaperones, daycare centers, school positions, offers to babysit for friends & family, etc.)
Seem to love children, children seem drawn to person
Seek out women with children (or friends with children)
Spend a lot of time with a child (not their own)
Seem rigid, moral, a pillar of the community (too often accusations of abuse have not been believed because the person seemed to be too good, too outstanding to do such a thing
Groom a child--create a special bond (this may involve giving child gifts, money, or even alcohol, or other 'forbidden' things that make it appear he is a special friend and creates atmosphere for secret keeping. Could also include playfully touching, tickling, etc., but moves toward inappropriate touch)
Be an authoritarian or timid and unassertive
Frequent places like video arcades
Be addicted to child pornography
Be uncomfortable in adult relationships (i.e., doesn't relate well, insecure)
Have symptoms and after-effects of a survivor
Deny or rationalize their behavior
Be Manipulative
Befriend single mothers in order to get to the children. They prey on the desperation of the woman who has no support system. They often sleep with the mother
"Roughhouse" with children--tickling, slapping buttocks, etc.--and use this playful guise when they are in fact touching inappropriately

This wrong on so many levels! SO many people all over the world wanted tickets. Someone gets two free tickets and ebay here they come. With all the social networking, why not give the tickets to someone who didn't happen to win?? The American story..greed.

This Funeral Event that will be paid for by Taxpayers is turning out to be a BLACK/WHITE Spectacle. Mr Al Sharpon and his comments towards white people are making this into a racist event!! The police will have their hands full I bet.. I think The Jackson family should have kept the funeral a private event!!
