Washington, March 27 (ANI): A woman in Philadelphia who placed advertisement seeking World Series tickets in exchange of sexual favors has been charged for attempting prostitution.

Susan Finkelstein, 44, had placed advertisement on Craigslist with tacit sexual overtones.

The ad read: “gorgeous, tall, buxom blonde … in desperate need” of the tickets.

Finkelstein admitted she had placed a “goofy” ad and used her “feminine wiles” to get tickets.

“I wanted to get Series tickets I could afford,” she told “Early Show” co-anchor Harry Smith in late October. ” … I work in communications and PR (public relations). … I wanted my ad to stand out” among ones soliciting customers for merchandise … (do) why not make it fun and witty?”, CBS News quoted her as saying.

However, authorities busted her in an undercover operation.

She apparently offered to perform sexual acts for a Bensalem police officer in exchange for tickets to the World Series between the Phillies and New York Yankees, in October.

Assistant District Attorney Steven Jones said: “The jury was able to see the facts and understand what this case was. It was exactly what we said it was. (She) attempted to exchange sex acts for World Series tickets.” (ANI)
