Tickets are offered for sale through StubHub on July 23, 2014 in Chicago, IllinoisCriminal charges were filed Wednesday against six people in what authorities said was a global cyber-crime ring that created fraudulent e-tickets for major concerts and sporting events. According to the Manhattan district attorney's office, the cyber-gang was able to hack into the ticketing group StubHub, a unit of eBay, to take over user accounts, steal personal information and create fraudulent electronic tickets to concerts by Elton John and Jay-Z, sporting events including Yankees baseball games, and Broadway shows such as "Book of Mormon." An estimated 1,600 StubHub users had their accounts compromised in the scheme, according to the investigation by US, British, Canadian and other law enforcement authorities. "Today's arrests and indictment connect a global network of hackers, identity thieves, and money-launderers who victimized countless individuals in New York and elsewhere," District Attorney Cyrus Vance said in a statement.
