Jerk A**hole Ticket Scammers!

Posted on Mon, Oct 5, 2009 at 4:02 PM

To the people who buy up concert tickets and show tickets the day they come on sale anticipating them to sell out and then double the price and put them on Kijiji. Halifax is not a big city but it is starting to attract some great acts. Amazing bands and concerts happen sometimes in the smallest of venues and just because you've heard the name of the band but probably never heard their music does not mean you should try and make a profit by forcing real fans to track you down and take part in a bidding war online. I've played your game and I've had to find my tickets on the street but that 80$ I gave you for the 40$ ticket could have bought a t-shirt or cd at the show and helped to support a great band and given them a reason to come back to Halifax.
