WARNING...TICKET SCAM ARTIST OUT HERE...BEWARE!!!

Post by Jeannette »

WARNING: Never accept Western Union as Payment for Tickets!!! If someone calls you and has tickets for sale check to see if caller id is blocked. A legitiment business (ticket broker) will show up with caller id.

BUYERS BEWARE OF A MAN BY THE NAME OF ROBERT GLASS SUPPOSEDLY FROM MIAMI FLORIDA SELLING TICKETS AND BACKSTAGE PASSES....REALLY BAD NEWS!!!!!!

I GOT THE SAME CALL TOO ON SATURDAY MORNING AND ALMOST FORKED OVER $700.00....NOTHING EVER CAME BY FED EX AND NOW THERE IS NO ANSWER AT HIS TELEPHONE NUMBER.

Oh and the phone # leads to cyber consulting. Searched for it on google and they have a web site. It isn't a PR place to say the least.

yes, tried the western union gig. made it sound like he needed the receipt that I would get from western union to collect the money but that is crap. I notified the FBI but not the Florida police.

What Jen said... call the Florida State Police.

What this guy is doing is fraud, and while it's great to warn your fellow PHs, it's more important to actually get this guy, and until someone files a police report, it ain't gonna happen.

And just post his address... and everything else you know...

Shall we go down the list? But on a side note.. if I was single I surely might want that number to reach one of those women. They seem to have a chest I would like to plunder :pirate:

Don't wet yourself Jeannette. Just cause someone is scamming people doesn't mean we all have to lose our sense of humor does it?

(So, have you called the police yet?)

Hello all. I got the same type of deal as alot of ppl on here. I talked to the guy 5-6 times actually and he was very anxious to sell them, saying he had other business, his wife was having triplets, he may be leaving the country, etc etc. I actually bought into it when he offered to get me 10 tix for the apline show for only $20 a piece cuz he needed to get rid of them. He called earlier this morning to close the deal and arrange the Western Union thing on my lunch break. In between time, this was sounding a bit too good to be true, so I checked out this board. Thank god I did. I immediately let the FL state police know and when he called back at noon, I asked for a phone number and when he wouldnt give me one, I let him have it. Only took a minute of that for him to hang up...everyone watch out for this guy.

He used the name Brian Stevenson with me. Wanted me to send the money Western Union and the FedEx would be to me by the next day. Talked of his wife having triplets, living in Miami and Orlando, working PR for concerts, having backstage passes as well as lawn tickets, possibly leaving the country if he could get a nanny.....watch out for this guy...def seems very friendly, yet is pushy and anxious to close a deal quickly.

Oh yes, the agent I talked to at FL state police dept is also a parrothead 8) so that was good to hear....hopefully hell get taken care of by one of our own...

Hope this helps...
