A Passion Scam: A hotel manager in Munich, West Germany has been arrested on charges of selling 20,000 fraudulent tickets for this year’s production of the world-renowned Oberammergau passion play, raking in more than $1 million, authorities said. Police said most of the tickets were sold to two tour agencies, which in turn sold them to their clients. The manager was not identified. Residents of the picture-book Bavarian village re-enact the sufferings of Jesus Christ every 10 years.
