Patrick,

It's sad to hear that this has happened; however, I don't think that Screampass, or any other Haunt Ticketing company should be singled out or held accountable for this type of activity. They are NOT at fault. Anyone can steal a credit card and do the same thing through Ticketweb, Ticketmaster, SmartTix or any other ticketing service. As a matter of fact, even Haunts who sell their tickets directly through Paypal would be susceptible to this type of criminal activity. Credit card theft is just like identity theft. It isn't the fault of the company doing the transaction... it is the fault of the perpetrator. There is really little anyone can do to safeguard themselves from this.
