Two Long Islanders — one from Massapequa, the other from Plainview — were among five people whose credit cards were stolen and used to purchase 10 Super Bowl tickets worth about $57,000, the NYPD said.
Between Nov. 13 and Jan. 25, the stolen credit cards were used to buy tickets to Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7 in Santa Clara, California, according to the NYPD.
The thefts were reported Feb. 23 by an employee at the NFL’s Manhattan Midtown East headquarters, police said.
Other victims of the credit card thefts were from Fort Myers and Cooper City in Florida and Riverside, California, according to police.
No arrests have been made, police said.
The NFL declined to comment.
