FTC to Hold Workshop Examining Online Event Ticket Sale - Agency Seeks Input in Advance of March 2019 Workshop; Project No. P18450
I urge you to set a cap on how much these ticket selling companies can charge! I recently attended a show where the tickets were only $20.00 each. However, I was charged a "facility fee" of $5.00 and a "service fee" of $11.60. The name of the company is ticketfly. These fees increased my cost by $16.60. This is the most recent show, but I have paid higher fees in the past. It is time for the FTC to crack down on these bogus fees!
