On social media, several netizens shared reports of crimes committed by money changers. In one of the posts, a fan appears with bloody hands. “I just wanted to say that this in-person purchase was a humiliation and I will expose 100% that I got punched out of nowhere in the queue and nobody [ninguém] supported me,” she wrote.
Other fans reported having their cellphones stolen by clandestine sellers. Netizens also reported that the money changers coerced people who were waiting to buy the ticket and cut the line several times.
“They [cambistas] they messed with all the girls who passed by, calling her little princess, kitty, one of them said: ‘That one is really hot’. It was horrible,” 18-year-old student Caroline França Pedrozo told G1.

Also according to the SSP, the PM was even called to complain about problems with the purchase of tickets.
