On Oct. 29 at 11:59 a.m., EPD received a report of theft via telephone. The complainant said she visited a Facebook event page at approximately 4 p.m. on Oct. 24 for a musical artist scheduled to perform in Atlanta on Nov. 18. She said that she visited the page with the intention of locating resale tickets for the show and contacted a seller who was advertising that he had two tickets for sale. The complainant stated that they were initially in agreement for her to purchase two tickets to the event for $90 total. However, she stated that during her conversation with the seller, she began to suspect that she was being scammed out of her money. After sending the initial payment, the complainant stated she was manipulated into purchasing additional tickets when the seller claimed that this was the only way to proceed and fully complete the sale. She said that after not receiving any tickets, she asked for a refund of her money, approximately $240 in total, but the seller blocked her on Facebook and ceased all communication with her on Oct. 28 at approximately 4 p.m. The complainant also mentioned that there was another suspicious account that posted on the Facebook event page about reselling their tickets. This account used the same seller’s name but had a different profile picture.
