A group of scam victims found out they’ll get to go to the big game after all.

San Francisco 49ers fan Sharon Osgood used Craigslist to pay $5,900 for what she thought was three tickets to Super Bowl XLVII.

Instead she got a package with no tickets and a note saying “Go Ravens! LOL!”.

This morning Ticketmaster contacted Osgood to give her four tickets to the game and a private reception with former Dallas Cowboy Quarterback Troy Aikman.

The extra ticket means everyone who made the trip from Hayward, California with Osgood gets a ticket.

She says detectives told her they are close to finding the scam artist.

If they get her money back she’s thinking about giving it to the NFL Play 60 program.
