DON’T BUY FAKE TICKETS!
As we head into our busy season, we want to address an issue that has become more and more problematic for all venues across the country. We are no exception.
We all have become accustomed to the convenience and ease of purchasing online. Point and click has become the way I conduct most of my transactions in my own life. We have made a conscious effort to create a fast and easy transactional online portal so that as soon as our tickets go on sale, our patrons can easily log on and purchase tickets.
Unfortunately, while we do everything that we can to make the buying of tickets seamless online, ticket scalpers have found a way to direct unsuspecting patrons to unofficial sites to resell them overpriced tickets. Sometime these tickets are resold at outlandish prices. Even worse, sometimes these overpriced sales are for tickets that never existed! This leaves patrons to get all the way to a venue only to find that there is no seat for them. Some of these elaborate scams have even set up phone numbers where you can call and buy tickets from an actual person. Some will also send you a counterfeit eTicket.
HOW DO THE SCAMMERS DO IT?
Frankly, it is easy. Say you want to see your favorite artist, so you go to Google, Yahoo or whatever your favorite search engine is and you search. Your artist comes up and you see that it is playing at your local theater so you click on the first link you see. The first link is often a scalper link because the scalper has paid a lot of money for that first position. Guess what? You have now been scammed. Remember, unfortunately, once a scalper or con artist gets your money, there is nothing that we can do to help you.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO NOT GET SCAMMED?
First, feel free to search your favorite search engine to find where your favorite artist is playing. Once you have the date, time and location STOP RIGHT THERE! Head on over to our website, www.jaytv.com and purchase directly from our site!
