I purchased two tickets from Event Tickets LLC (dba www.ticketsmyway.com) on April 8, 2008 for a Broadway musical showing May 3, 2008. A week prior to my leaving for NY I still hadn’t received the tickets. During the week prior to my departure for New York on May 1, 2008, I sent numerous emails, voicemails and even faxes to Event Tickets LLC (dba ticketsmyway.com)—all of which were unreturned. On May 2, 2008—the day prior to the show—I received a voicemail message from Andrew Sims at Event Tickets, LLC saying that the tickets had been FedExed to my home address in Seattle the day prior to the show. Obviously, I wasn’t able to use the tickets, and when I returned from NY, the tickets that were sent were not even the tickets that I ordered!
I had ordered seats in the center orchestra section, row Q. I don’t remember the seat numbers, but I actually selected the individual seats from a seating chart. Each seat on the chart had a different price assigned to it and I paid for the two seats I selected. The tickets that were eventually sent to me were not for the seats I had purchased, not even in the center orchestra or row Q, but way off to stage left with a partially obstructed view. Not surprisingly the price printed on the tickets were almost $100 less than what I had originally paid.
Their scam is obvious to me now. They give you the impression you are purchasing certain tickets at a certain price by having you select them from a seating chart. Next, they wait until a day or two before the actual performance and then purchase a much cheaper seat from what little inventory remains and then send this to you.
