Please note that the above Attorney’s General will likely change with each election (for instance, Illinois’s is now Lisa Madigan, not Jim Ryan) so make sure you’ve got the correct person before launching off your letters.February 4, 2003 at 1:50 pm #84426AleviaParticipant
I just received an email from a website called
and they advertised JE tickets for sold out venues. I saw that they were offering ONE ticket to Rhode Island for $240! I am assuming this cannot possibly be legal, can it??

Not according to the earlier post in this thread, Alevia. You should report it to the Rhode Island Attorney General. You should be able to find what you need, here.February 4, 2003 at 1:58 pm #84430AleviaParticipant
Thanks Don, I will do that.

It seems that even the attorney generals office is not too worried about scalping right now either. This is SOOOO unfortunate for those (including myself) that cannot get tickets to see John. I am going on faith and blind luck to see him this year. :(March 5, 2003 at 10:32 pm #85403raycoParticipant
Yes it is very scary that newspapers are running ads from scalpers, especially since this is illegal. Maybe some newspapers think they are above the law, like some of the politicians they critisize (sounds a little hypocritical to me). :confused:April 23, 2003 at 10:31 pm #86279LucidhartParticipant
Hi…I posted here before asking for some help with best way to handle extra tickets to make sure they don’t fall into wrong hands. I came back hoping for some suggestions. Did I post or say anything wrong? But my post is just gone…POOF :(
I sincerely wanted some ideas. I’m confused…did I mention that lol.

I believe you will find another thread about posting tickets on this site. We don’t want anyone being taken advantage of, not that you would do that. The best thing to do here is wait and see if someone posts that they are looking for tickets. We’re trying to avoid becoming victims to Ebay and scalpers.April 23, 2003 at 10:40 pm #86282JudeParticipant
Here are the guidelines for posting about seminar tickets. I just *bumped* the thread:
Check your e-mail! I just wrote to you to explain! :)June 2, 2003 at 2:20 pm #87104Pam BKeymaster
*bump* with regard to the other thread about scalping on ebay. You can report this to ebay yourself – the more people that report it, the more ebay will listen. Please see the “get involved” post….June 21, 2003 at 3:47 am #87255AngelsMailroomParticipant
Just wondering – Is my idea is too simplistic…. such as, no more than 4 to 6 tickets sold to an individual. I don’t know how many “blocks” of tickets are sold at this time to a purchaser. Just a thought.June 21, 2003 at 3:52 am #87256JudeParticipant
Adrienne, I think I have noticed lately that at some of the recent JE events, there was an 8 ticket limit. :shrug:
Does that sound familiar to anyone else? I don’t think I dreamed it… :hmm:June 21, 2003 at 10:51 am #87257GailParticipant
I’ve seen where there is a limit on tickets but scalpers probably have a lot of friends, all buying 8 tickets each. I don’t know what could be done to stop that. :(

If the person holding the credit card has to pick up the ticket, then there will be a lot of poor people who won’t be able to go.
I know several people who are disabled or on welfare who have friends and relatives with credit cards who buy things for them on the net. You would be surprised at how common this is. I know someone personally who has a ticket to the November Workshop and it does not have her name on it, but that of the friend who bought it. And if the person who bought the tickets becomes ill or has to work, then perhaps whole groups will have wasted time and money.
I find in life the more negative energy I put into a thing the worse it gets and the more control people try to exert the more negative energy is created. Maybe we could all just try some group positive energy and let everyone do and learn the way they need to. Even scalpers are souls on journeys.
