    I got careless and fell for it. I just found this place and shot the guy an email.

    Seeing as how I never received the tickets (much less on time) and you haven't responded to an email once the money was picked up, I couldn't help but feel I was scammed here. Then I Google'd Carrie Porter's supposed address and found this little gem:
    Some dick tried to scam me with Tool tickets

    I would like that money back and this can be gone about two different ways. The easy way would obviously be to simply send it to me, a stamp is a lot less money than a Western Union money transfer fee. The hard way would be me showing up at the address that shows up all over said thread and getting my money back. (Cumberland, Maryland is quite an easy drive from where I live.)

    Feel free to respond promptly.
    Had to fix a typo.

    I just filed a detailed complaint with the IC3. Hopefully I can wreck this guy's whole operation; getting my money back would'n't be bad either.

    Exclamation almost got me too!!!

    BUYER BEWARE....I was checking Craigslist the other day and came across a great deal on 4 Madonna Tickets for the montreal show...although it seemed too good to be true i got really excited!! I got suspicious when the tracking of the package would only work from the link in the email and not on the TNT website...i did a bit of further checking and found this thread...DAMN!!! I am happy i did not send the funds!!!


    I wrote...

    Hello...

    The tickets are still available. I am now in Manchester, United Kingdom. I will pay for an overnight delivery so if we both move fast you can receive the tickets in less than 1 day.

    The tickets were bought by my company as a bonus on a deal for a customer. Unfortunatelly the deal did not go through and now we are stuck with the tickets. I would hate to see the tickets go to waste. We can have the deal asap.

    Obviously we need a way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after.

    I have found a way for us to complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the tickets in less than 1 day, if you move fast as well.
    The solution is provided by a international company called TNT which is similar to Fedex, DHL or UPS, which will handle the payment and delivery of the tickets. With this procedure I will only receive the payment for the tickets after you will receive them and see that they are genuine.

    Please click on the link below to the TNT website to see how we can complete the deal safely and fast directly from the website of the company where the procedure is explained.

    Like I said, I will pay for an overnight delivery so you will receive them in time.

    Let me know what you think

    SCAM ALERT- TNT, Hillary A. Clark, Philipp McFinn

    Add Hillary A. Clark and Philipp McFinn to the list of scam alert names when buying things online and the seller wants you to wire money to TNT through Western Union.

    Total scam. Elaborate, and set up well. Read about it a hundred times on the internet, only the scammer uses different names with the same procedure and email format.

    The emails are sent through hotmail, under a domain of @group-tnt.com or [email protected] . I'm guessing they have hundreds of names and domains to choose from.

    Here is 2 sample emails:

    Hi there
    The tickets are available and $600 for a pair is a fair price. We are not ticket brokers, we just want to save some money. The fact is we are stuck with those tickets. We would hate to see the tickets go to waste. We have to selling them because we - me and my husband - we won't be able to make it to this event. We've decided to expand our honeymoon. We are in Europe, UK.
    I have found a way for us to complete the deal safely and fast, and in this way you will receive the tickets in less than 2 days, if you move fast as well. The solution is provided by a company called TNT which is similar to Fedex, DHL or UPS, which will handle the payment and delivery of the tickets.
    You to pay for the tickets only after you will receive them - this way you will see that they are genuine. Please click on the link below to the TNT website to see how we can complete the deal safely and fast directly from the website of the company where the procedure is explained.

    Let me know what you think. Hillary
    PS. Due to the time sensitive nature of this tickets, let me know as soon as you can if we have a deal.

    So, for whatever reason, I was reminded of this event again tonight and began to see red once more. I went on Craigslist and within five minutes found a sale that has identical traits to how the guy/guys operate (4 tickets, 4th row, high demand sports event that's already sold out). I shot off an email under a new address and name and await his response.

    The IC3 has not contacted me yet. It's been quite awhile. If they read my complaint, I don't understand why the guy volunteering evidence wouldn't be so much as emailed. But no matter, by the end of next week they'll be more sick of me than this asswipe will.

    To Andy

    Andy:
    Just got scammed for over $600 from Craigslist. I have been researching this whole scam and came upon a few of your articles. In one, you say that a victim called the police on this scam.
    Is there an update to the story?This all just happened last week to me while trying to buy Chicago Bears tickets.
    I just wanted to know if there was an update on what is going on.
