That link was sent to me by somebody and you better read it as you go forward working with online ticket companies. I know many of you had three year deals with Screampass and most if not all of those are over now. As you choose companies to sell your tickets online you had better read this article because this could happen to you.

If this happened to you it would be devastating. Seems like most people are going with the safe bet of Click and Print, or selling tickets online themselves.

As you come closer to going to Transworld there will be several companies selling tickets there so make sure you do your homework!!!!

Doesn't sound like a scam as much as a non communication.

Seems easy enough to fix, have them meet in a dark parking lot, both parties bring the stuff they are holding from each other. "You got the stuff man...? Yeah, you got the green?" Then do the switch, easy peesy. Plus no lawyers fee!!

Yes I agree it doesn't really sound like a scam but some kind of miscommunication. I'm guessing the money stopped and no one actually called to straighten out the issue and here we are months later with a lawsuit. So many problems can be solved with levelheadedness and phone call:)

Yeah I guess I didn't mean scam... what I meant was how this ticketing company sold tickets for an event then never paid them.

Imagine if you sell that much in tickets on line and never get your check. That is NOT a good thing!!!

I have been for a long time selling tickets myself, and everytime I get a transaction I get the money deposited straight into my account. All I guess I was trying to do is alert people to the dangerous of working with just anyone to sell your tickets.

As most of you go to TW with no contracts with Screampass and you look at other options because there should be 3 or 4 agencies there selling their service, make sure you do your research.
