Re: Be careful what you buy and where you buy it -

No sympathies here. You gotta be stupid to pay that kind of money for super bowl tickets.

Here's a follow up story to jaykaykay's link.

quote:
After this newspaper's story on the couple was read around the country Tuesday, Ticketmaster CEO Nathan Hubbard called Hayward resident Sharon Osgood to offer four free tickets for her, her boyfriend and other family members who got scammed. Hubbard also arranged for Osgood and her partner to have breakfast with NFL legend Troy Aikman.
I want to believe in people and give them the benefit of the doubt but what if the "victim" concocted this whole story just to get free SB tickets. I don't like it that I'm jaded enough towards people in order to make that leap in the first place.

You could be on to something and that very well could be possible. At the same time IF that is not the case. They got lavishly rewarded for being stupid.

Sheesh, now that just takes the cake, and Ice cream too. Your angle on this sounds quite plausible. Guess being stupid has it rewards.

It's also possible that this was not a scam, and the tickets were stolen by a FedEx employee. My father had NY Giants season tickets stolen from the mail years ago. At every game, someone showed up holding the stolen tickets; they said they bought them from someone in Brooklyn.

its in ticketmaster's interest to publicize this story.

"I wish I could tell you that we don't hear this story a lot, but we do," Hubbard told a reporter and Osgood on a conference call. "There are a lot of places that fans go to buy tickets that aren't safe, and they get completely exploited. And it drives us crazy."
L O L - That's rich. The CEO of Ticketmaster saying that people get exploited when purchasing event tickets and not referring to Ticketmaster itself.

This.

We're trying to figure out how to pay for the repairs for the damage caused by Sandy. No sympathy from me for people who will throw away that kind of money on a single game.

I can completely agree with your thoughts. I wouldn't do it even without Sandy.

Age is a very high price to pay for my maturity. If I can't stay young, I can at least stay immature!
