Type of a scam Online Purchase
I purchased tickets via debit card on 10/31/2017 for a show scheduled on 11/22/2017. I believe I visited the site or got an email that venue had change and date to 11/21/2017 at Stage 48. Upon arrival there were a few people their not many and they said they were told there was no concert and it was on Groupon that it was rescheduled for the Barclay Center 1/24/2018. Since it has been pulled from Groupon. Also, all their contact information was coming in as invalid.
We were skeptical to pay for the tickets on the site but there was a Live Nation logo so we felt safe.
I cant get any information from Stage 48 or on the Website. I followed their link to Facebook where it was revealed on the Facebook page that it would be rescheduled for 1/24/2018 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. There is no listing on the Barclay Center website for such an event.
Another person left a comment on the website about being charged $150 for tickets in VIP and we only paid $100 and he was reaching out to get a refund of the balance. And he had mentioned that they had changed the date and venue several times and he wanted a refund.
The person they were talking to was listed as JT Thompson. I do not have face book but I open an account to leave a comment about the event and wanting a refund. I have reached out to the Attorney General Office to report them.
All of their contact information is Bogus. I have suffered a lost but want others with debit to be protected. Its not fair and something really needs to be done. It was a lesson learned for me that hit me where it hurt because I spend money not only for tickets for clothing and hairdo and transportation to a nonexistent event.
Below is what I copied from their website.
