Need your help. I was offered 4 tickets, club level, 30 yard line from a girl that works for a travel agency in Canada. The travel agency ls legit: phone number, email, even has the girl's photo and bio. Here is one of the emails I received. She told me a client that was going to use the tickets fell through, and needs to get rid of them. She'd pay to overnight them to Miami to an address to where I can pick up the tickets. Please read this email, look at the link and pics and let me know if I should do it. Leaning towards yes, but familiar with scammers. What do you guys think?
Hi, my name is ___________ and I am from Langley, BC, Canada.
I work for a travel agency and the tickets were bought by my company as a
bonus we were going to give on a deal to a customer in the US.
Unfortunately the deal did not go through and now we have them, but cannot
My company will pay for the delivery of the tickets with the overnight
delivery so you can receive them tomorrow at your address or on Monday
morning in Miami.
I realize we need an exchange method that requires safety for both
parties, so I checked for a way to make the exchange from here in Langley,
and I found a company which has a procedure that is perfectly suited for
our situation. The company is called Parcel Junction, which is an
international delivery service and they will handle both the payment and
delivery part of this transaction.
They seem pretty nice and trustworthy and they provide a service that we
can use for our exchange.
The link below is taken from the Parcel Junction site and it explains the
procedure I am talking about in 7 easy to follow steps.
Please check the link and the procedure and let me know if you agree to
With this procedure we initiate the transaction, then I take the tickets
to Parcel Junction.
After they review the merchandise they send you a confirmation that they
have the tickets and a set of instructions for you to follow to receive
the package. After you receive the tickets you will use the tickets to go
to the game and only after that, after you receive and use the tickets you
will instruct Parcel Junction to send me the funds and the transaction
will be complete. Again, check the terms from their site available at the
link I sent.
I will pay for the overnight delivery so you will receive them tomorrow.
Let me know if we can proceed.
They look real. Look just like mine anyway. I'm no expert though.
Proceed my friend! Proceed!
You'll never achieve great things until you believe that's what's supposed to happen
What about the payment method? Does it sound legit. It looks like you can pay with paypal through this service...almost like a double-secure transaction. Still, this is a big purchase and I don't want to get jipped.
You don't have to pay for them until AFTER you use them. So of course.
be careful man!!!! if it sounds too good.....I dont have experience with this company though but scams are very convincing. hope its legit for your sake. dont pay a cent until you got tickets in hand and your in the stadium

You need a date, Tarheel03??? Don't forget your Gameday pal!
That seems like a scam IMO. Do you know the company she works for at all or did you just get randomly selected? Wouldn't hurt trying I guess, but if they ask you to pay a fee to establish an account at that third party paynent servics or give your credit card, I'd be careful. Who knows maybe you got lucky though, good luck!
Why can't she put them on stubhub and you can buy them with guarantee?
SCAM written all over it man
I got close to the same one and looked it up..scam
2 is $1200
I want to tell you that i am in AZ right now, we can't make it to the event, thats why i am selling, i am from the UK, i am a flight attendant doing US-UK-US flights, but because of a flight schedule change we can not go to the event, but i am going to overnight the tickets via Transglobal Premium and you have them in hands tomorrow, Sunday at 11 am.
Transglobal Premium will hold the funds while you entry to the venue, until the venue ends and you instruct them to release the funds to me. So, you will be able to withdraw your money back from Transglobal Premium in 24 hours if something is wrong with the tickets before or after the event in less than 24 hours. But the tickets are genuine, hard tickets, have them in hand. So, you are protected and i am protected.
Here is the link to the company's service professionally explained:
I will pay the fees.
Let me know what do you think
OK, think about this. As big as these tickets are, as much as they are selling for - why would someone do something completely against the norm?
That's what would worry me? GOOD LUCK Man, seriously Good Luck.
Yes, I e-mailed her yesterday about her tickets. She got back with me this morning. She works for a travel agency with a legit address, emails, photos and bios on their website. The first thing I said back to her when she sent that email was "this has scam written all over it. Can you send me photos." She replied, "I can, but why should I since you already made up your mind that it's a scam." I apologized, and then she sent them to me.
Can some of these shipping companies ship on Saturday or Sunday? She claims it could get here tomorrow or monday. I didn't know about weekend shipping.
did you initiate the conversation? how did she get in contact with you..... my first thoughts are if you did not start the conversation then i would be very suspicious...
You will lose. Not worth it.
