PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- A Philadelphia woman accused of trying to trade sex for World Series tickets will receive two tickets to game three, a radio host said.

Chio, host of Chio in the Morning on WIRED-FM, said he and Philadelphia car dealer Gary Barbera plan to present two tickets to Saturday's game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees in Philadelphia to Susan Finkelstein Friday at Barbera's car dealership, the Philadelphia Daily News reported Thursday.

Finkelstein, 43, who was cited for charges of soliciting prostitution and related misdemeanors by an undercover officer responding to her Craigslist ad, said her intention was not to trade sex for tickets.

"DESPERATE BLONDE NEEDS WS TIX (Philadelphia)," the ad read. "Diehard Phillies fan - gorgeous tall buxom blonde - in desperate need of two World Series Tickets. Price negotiable - I'm the creative type! Maybe we can help each other!"

"I was looking for a way to get reduced World Series tickets," Finkelstein told "Inside Edition." "If I can flirt with someone and maybe get cheap tickets, more power to me."

Bensalem Public Safety Director Fred Harran said the woman offered to engage in various sex acts with the undercover officer and his brother in exchange for two World Series tickets.
