FTC to Hold Workshop Examining Online Event Ticket Sale - Agency Seeks Input in Advance of March 2019 Workshop; Project No. P18450
I recently selected 3 tickets for a Bob seger concert at the Quicken Loans Arena at $122.00 each for a total of $366. These were Purchased on the Q arena website and not purchased on the secondary market. At check out the total was $650 each ticket for a total of well over $2000 with various additional fees. I checked the website for these tickets because I received an email that additional seats had been released. These tickets are advertised at $122 until you get to the checkout with your credit card and a huge ridiculous amount is presented. This is not only false advertising it should be illegal in my opinion. If a store Labels of the product at one price and you get to the register and they charge 10 times more That would be price gouging and illegal. Please address the situation of abuse, false advertisement and price gouging. I have screen prints of my transaction should you need them.
