TAXI DRIVER OVERHEARD ARMY BOYS PLAN TO PROFIT FROM ED SHEERAN TICKETS

I am a taxi driver and would like to share what I heard when I sent 4 army boys to their camps on Sunday night. The boys were talking about how they can profit from Ed Sheeran tickets, one of them who went to queue claimed that he got 8 tickets and only needs 2, he is willing to sell the some of the remaining 6 tickets to the other friends and allow them to jack up the prices for profits. They started looking over the Internet for some cheaper tickets like maybe less than $1000 and prepare to sell them out again at $1500 so on and so forth. I am wondering, are these army boys so desperate for money? Why are they robbing others of their livelihood with their own greed or advantage? I am hoping for the authorities or ticketing agents to take actions avian at these scalpers. Please be careful Ed Sheeran fans.
