Many street scalpers at the Vancouver Olympics made a killing, according to The Province newspaper, because a supposed crackdown on ticket resale never really materialized. In some instances, scalpers were able to buy event tickets the same day and turn them around profit. The Vancouver Olympic Committee, which set up its own online ticket resale site, said this year’s Winter Games were going to be the first Olympics to sell out.
