ALBANY, NY – Governor Andrew Cuomo says that the Archdiocese of New York has informed him that those who will be going to see Pope Francis in September in New York City, should be aware that no one is selling tickets to see the pope for this visit.
The governor is warning however, that there are scams at these sorts of events.
“We are proud to welcome Pope Francis to New York and I urge those interested in attending his events to obtain tickets only through the verified Catholic parishes,” Governor Cuomo said. “Anyone attempting to sell tickets is a scam artist and should be avoided at all costs. Making certain that you receive valid tickets will ensure that this event remains joyous and festive for all.”
