    Default I just got totally scammed! now what?

    God I feel so stupid.

    5 days have passed since I convinced my boyfriend to send $500 dollars thru an unknown "money-gram" service for 2 three day passes and two camping tix from some girl claiming her mother was sick and couldn't go to the fest.. what an idiot I am. I guess I just got desperate. and two days later, ticketmaster releases tickets. No tickets in sight.

    I'm doing some investigation on this "coachellagirlselling" that I found on this here forum that I've been hopping on every once in a while for 2 years now. Reverse phone number search, google earth and whatnot. nothing adds up. All I know is I just got screwed. I just made my boyfriend send off all our money to a stranger... is that it then? no justice?

    fuck.

    Has anyone spoken with an "Adrianna Martin in New Hampshire" with a landline in seattle?

    I'm the top poster on this board and I am practically giving them away and no one wants them. I had my tickets up here 5 days ago.

    nno no no. no second chance. WE JUST GAVE $500 DOLLARS TO A SCAM ARTIST. WE DON'T JUST GET OUR MONEY BACK SO WE CAN GIVE IT TO YOU.

    no second chance. i'm hunting down this bitch as we speak.

    You should have made the seller send a sign pic of the tickets. That's what I did when I bought my camping pass because I didn't want to get scammed.

    I would pay a PI to check her and break her legs, but hey, thats just me...

    But seriously always remember NEVER to send money to a complete stranger through western union. Always use Paypal specially with a credit card (double protection), or do the transaction with cash in person

    That would be also an option, but if you just break her legs, burn her house to the ground, desecrate her mothers tomb and kill her kittens you could still get your money back.

    Killing her would benefit society.

    Causing all that damage, but leaving her alive, will set society back some. Insurance costs will go up. Media will cover it [and ignore the war/extreme poverty some more].

    I agree I should have known better, but I don't think I deserve it. I believe in good people, and have sold tickets at face value a few times myself. I should have known better.

    and yes, we use paypal, but the girl said she didn't have an account, and that she uses money-gram, it works better.. whatever.

    new info though: moneygram gives you a code, and the other party has to recieve it from you to pick it up, and she hasn't. (dumb bitch hasn't talked to us since tuesday) so does that mean we didn't lose the money?

    Sorry, chica.
    I'm hoping my Sunday ticket isn't a dud. But I got my stuff from Stubhub.com. They guarantee your shit is real.

    Why wait until tomorrow? Unless moneygrams are closed on sundays?
    At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."

    Plan is in action. a) phone bomb the bitch all day until I get an answer b) buy tix from vinylmartyr or better. c) send ridiculous amounts of hate mail to scammer. d) never get scammed again.


    until then, my investigations to locate this woman is ON.
