Theoretically, they were club level, 40 yard line, row 4. Face value would have been $3,600, so the price is pretty reasonable.

Here's the story:

I found the guy through a CraigsList listing. Contacted him via email, then later by phone. I was nervous about the whole thing, so when it came time to pay him, I asked for a full contract, plus a copy of his drivers' license. I thought that would scare him off if he were a scammer. On top of that, he sounded like he was in his late 20's (verified by his ID), no foreign accent, and a background check on privateeye.com confirmed his address was the address I sent the check to. He lives in California, which is a little suspicious, but he said he had recently moved from the KC area. According to theory, his grandparents originally owned the seats, so I didn't think anything of it. This was in the middle of June.

In mid-July I had a question for him, so I called him up to find that his cell phone had been disconnected. I freaked out a bit, but emailed him in case there was some explanation. Sure enough, a couple days later I got an email with his new phone number. I called him, and all seemed to be well.

Yesterday, I still hadn't gotten my tickets, so I called him up. He said that they hadn't arrived yet and that he would call the Chiefs last night to see why they hadn't arrived yet. Even then I still thought he was on the up and up...

Until today when I got a call from the Laguna Beach police department. The guy has been arrested on multiple counts of fraud, and I'm one of around 30 he's scammed. Lucky me, he said mine was the largest amount.

The weird thing about the whole thing is that the guy never gave me any false information. The guy they arrested is the same name that's on my contract. His drivers' license matches, too. I don't understand why someone would try such a large scam but give people his real name, address, and phone number. And why would he still give me his real phone number, a month after he had cashed my check?

Anyway, if I get lucky I'll get part of it back, but I'm not holding my breath. I'm working with a detective in California and I've filed a report with the local PD. If any of you guys have any useful suggestions, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise, I'm supposed to just let the detectives figure it out for now.

I've done a LOT of buying and selling online, so I consider myself to be pretty good at sniffing out frauds. This one completely blindsided me, though.

Ugh...

If it were me, I'd rather extract $4000 worth of various appendages in unique and painful ways from this douche when he gets out of jail.....

I would not give the money til I had the tickets in hand and checked if they were fakes.

I got screwed by Ticketmaster when Guns and Losers cancled their show in KC. The riot in St. Louis messed up their equipment. Ticketmaster kept nearly $200 in service charges. 2 days later, reannounced the show and charged a service charge again. I was pissed.
