“Rip_Off!”

Written on: 23/10/2012 by Moomin1 (2 reviews written)

These so called legal sites have improved fraudulent ticket sales but they charge way too much,
They take a percentage from the person selling the tickets then also charge a processing fee, shipping fee...etc... to the person Buying the tickets.
These companies then put these costs down to rubbish like protection guarantee, providing a transparent market place, dedicated customer service!
...More like making a percentage!
If you can't buy ticket's for a reasonable price on 'Ticketmaster' you can then funnily enough buy them on 'GetMeIn' for a huge Mark-Up...and guess what GETMEIN in Ticketmaster's own partner site...A coincidence???

These companies are just greedy and an absolute Rip-Off! Please think next time you buy who is actually getting the money from the ticket sales!

Whistleblower99's Response to Moomin1's Review

As an ex employee of Ticketmaster, I can confirm that the tickets on getmein have never been put up for general sale, and are retained by Ticketmaster for the purposes of selling on getmein at hugely inflated price. It's all done in a covert way to avoidbfraud. But it's so obvious by the charging of a handling fee. eBay don't make the buyer pay a buying fee, the seller pays. But on getmein that wouldn't work because they'd be charging themselves. It's a double whammy ripoff. Greed rules here.

Nonsense! Having sold several unwanted tickets on Getmein I can honestly say this is not how it works. I don't, and never have worked for Ticketmaster!!! There are thousands of tickets for sale for events that Ticketmaster was never the agent for - how do you explain that? Ebay don't charge the seller a handling fee - but they do charge a listing fee, and they also take a percentage of the payment which goes through Paypal. Getmein don't charge a listing fee, neither do they deduct anything from the payment - so it's swings and roundabouts.
