    Default We've been scammed! :/

    So this guy played my friends and I for 2 tix & camping for $800 b/c he got them presale and we were "normal people" compared to all the crazy's trying to contact him... We arranged to pay half before and half after, so he got away with $400. He goes by Jonathan and "wife" Miranda Hoisington # (310) 988-0054 don't fall for it! Sure he has a different name he's using now but do what I was originally planning on and buy in person. We had him sign paperwork and all so hopefully karma will catch up to him!
    Now my friends and I have 1 legit ticket and still are looking for 2 more and camping. If anyone is willing to sell for face value (in the spirit of Coachella) in person with activation on the spot for cash pm me. I'm can meet in the la area or Vegas area and my friend can do the phx/flagstaff area.

    Oh that sucks. Sorry to hear about that. But did you happen to get copies of his ID? If so, then you can file a police report on this person since you also have signed paperwork, signifying an agreement.

    You should never give money until you have the items in your possession.

    I suggest you do eBay as they have buyer protection if you don't find anyone here. They will have to pay you back if your wristbands don't work.

    How did you pay this person? Did you write a check? Did you guys meet in person? What's the wording on the agreement you signed?

    You definitely need to pursue, at very least, a police action against this person.

    Police report has been submitted and also all money transfer stations have been alerted. We wrote up a bill of sale. And wired money through money gram... Lesson learned! The guy is a real person his "wife" isn't but he could be using someone else's identity.

    It was craigslist and not one of the obvious scams he started with something like hey my Coachella family so sad that I am not going to make Coachella this year. And went on for a bit. He texted me and my friend and spoke back and forth on the phone with him and he seemed cool... We were wrong obviously.
