    Unhappy I think I got scammed :(

    So.......
    I wasnt able to get a ticket before it sold out so i had to resort to buying one on the after market. I ended up buying a ticket off of a lady in New York who could attend the festival anymore because she had to pay court fees. I bought the ticket for $425 ($400 for the ticket and $25 for overnight shipping). I talked to the lady on the phone prior to the transaction, she showed me pictures of the tickets as well as an ebay bid that she had done for them. Everything seemed legit. The first red flag came up when she didn't send the tickets till a day later than we had planned but I was so desperate for a ticket and she seemed legit. She eventually shipped them and the package made it all the way to my city before USPS deemed it as "Undeliverable as Addressed". I went to the post office to try and pick them up but by that point they were already on their way back to New York. I've called/texted/emailed/ and facebooked her multiple times now but she isn't responding anymore. DO you think I've been scammed? and if so, does anyone know where I can get a legit ticket pleaseeee?? the concert is less than a week away and I've already made all my preperations to go. I will be crushed if this doesn't work out

    You got scammed. And the only way to get a real ticket will be to go steal your friends'.

    Hey Andrew, I think its the same lady that you recommended on the site a week or so back as my friend contacted the lady who you said was in NY about purchasing her tickets and he had the same story, cant go due to court cost and when he sent her money, she never sent him the tickets and now she wont answer her phone or respond to emails. He has opened up a police report on her as of today. Her email is musicalheaven33@yahoo.com

    Anyone who has some free time, please just spam her phone and email address. This lady is evil and needs to pay for her actions.

    I got burned on e-bay for a wristband. Lucky for me, I'd purchased one previous to this, so I already had mine. I'd bought it to bring a friend. Poor show.

    That really sux dude. I was fortunate enough to buy a wristband today. I met the girl at a coffe shop and she had no problem supplying me with the receipt and a copy of her driver license. We actually sat and had coffee together for a pleasant hour. Kind'a felt like an expensive, successful blind date.

    I was duped.
    Same thing happened to me. I was getting passes for my friends. Had her e-mail as saratsarat33@gmail.com.
    She wanted to exchange IDs, giving me a reason as to how she was shafted in the past. After telling her that I won't do any exchanges outside of PayPal, she said that I can send the money to her friend.
    Undeliverable package, being sent back to NY. I filed a "dispute" on PayPal, and immediately got a response stating that the person cannot respond to disputes at the time, so I "escalated" it saying she's fraudulent, and linked this thread in the comments.

    I liked you a lot better when I was imagining you as Meg Ryan with a dykey haircut! Now my whole fantasy romp has been destroyed. Oh well, there's always lucid dreaming ; ) always nice to see good humor (as there's no waaaaaay I'd E-Rage on a fellow Coachellagoer without an audience foaming at the mouth!)
