WARNING SCAM! There is a listing on here for Luke Bryan tickets listed as Luke Bryan (4)-$100. When you click on it the text says something along the lines of
"Hey folks. I'm getting rid of my tickets for Saturday nights concert. Sweet seats....."
So I called and he answered in a hushed tone saying he was at dinner with his wife and would call me back. Couple hours later he texts me asking if I'm still interested and I say yes. He says he is from Mt. Pleasant and seats are Floor 3 Row RR. Great i say, I definitely want them. He answers saying
"Cool beans" (uses phrases like this and "oh gosh"I'm guessing to make him sound older and more trustworthy. Says he is just there (mt. Pleasant) visiting his wife's parents (but already told me he lived there) and that since he bought the tickets on stubhub he could transfer them to my stub hub account and have me pay via PayPal. He reassures me both are easy to set up. I tell him I'm not comfortable getting tickets that way but that if the tickets are on stubhub and we can verify them that we would gladly pay him in cash. He said "oh gosh" like he hasn't thought of the fact that someone might question whether they are real or not and offers to send me a screenshot of one which he does. Ok that works. If I can verify then I will agree to send via PayPal.
Perfect he says but can I send it family/friends on PayPal bc he doesn't want to have to wait for the money (yet I've offered numerous times to run cash to him). I tell him no but I will gladly send regular PayPal so its protected. Don't hear back for a bit then he sends a message claiming how hectic things are with his wife's family right now and apologizing for not getting back to me right away. Again is asking me to send family and friends PayPal to which I decline. Tells me all he needs is my stubhub acct and he can send the tickets to me instantly and I have nothing to worry about! Uses the word honestly a lot. I reiterate that I'm not comfortable doing that and I would literally drive wherever he needed to pay him to which he never takes me up on. Of course I don't hear back from him. Then he posts yet ANOTHER Craigslist ad for the tickets saying he can meet any time after work etc (but when you try to do that he will make up some excuse and try to do the same stubhub/PayPal thing).
It worries me how many people might have fallen for this! Please please be careful buying tickets. Don't ever send PayPal family and friends unless it IS a family or friend! Regular PayPal protects their transactions which is why he didn't want to do that. He uses the number show contact info
. Its a VOIP number, not his real one so he can easily change it fyi. While he could be from literally anywhere, I actually do think he is from Mt. PLEASANT as I was able to do some investigating and get an address so if anyone DOES get scammed by him, please contact me.
