Ticketmaster is the biggest scam company ever. It's about time they got smacked around a little.

I EXPERIENCED THE SAME THING WITH TICKET MASTER AND TICKETS NOW WHEN I BOUGHT EAGLES TICKETS. FACE VALUE ON THE TICKETS WERE $201.00 EACH AND I PAID OVER $400.00 EACH. I CALLED TICKETS NOW AND GOT NO SATISFACTION. I DID NOT KNOW I WAS BUYING THE TICKETS FROM TICKETS NOW TILL I GOT THE BILL. THE TICKETMASTER WEBSITE HAD A CHOICE OF "BEST SEATS AVAILABLE". WHEN YOU CLICK ON THAT OPTION IT SENDS YOU TO THE TICKETS NOW WEBSITE WHERE THE INFLATED PRICED TICKETS ARE AT. I DID NOT REALIZE THIS UNTIL I PURCHASED THE TICKETS AND RECEIVED THE TICKETS NOW BILL ALONG WITH THE TICKETS WHICH HAD THE REAL PRICE PRINTED ON THEM. TICKETS NOW RESPONSE WAS I HAD AGREED TO THEIR TERMS AND THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO ABOUT IT. I HOPE THERE IS AN AVENUE WE CAN PERSUE IN VIRGINA TO GET TICKETMASTER TO REFUND MONEY AS NEW JERSEY WAS ABLE TO DO.

Ticketmaster has been running this scam around the country for as long as I can remember. They sell bulk tickets to places like mrtickets, tickets now, and other places for a bulk rate, increasing the prices, because of demand/supply before the tickets are even available to the public. Ticket prices haven't been realistic for over 10 years, and these capitalists having to pay 350k to NJ isn't going to stop them from continuing to scam music fans who are loyal to bands, but refuse to go to concerts anymore to support the capitalist machine and scalpers. DIE TICKETMASTER
