Working for a ticket broker
I used to work at a local ticket broker called Denverticket who is making a huge profit off of the ticket scam. They are preferred members with Ticketmaster because they spend so much money, so they always have access to the presale tickets. Whether it was for shows, sporting events, or plays Denverticket would instruct every employee in the office to get online when there was an on sale and turn off their proxies. From there we would wait for the tickets to go on sale and refresh the page and get as many lower level seats as possible, and pay from a list of over 15 credit cards that the owner had. They would hold on to the tickets until they were completely sold out and from there the two owners would set the prices at whatever cost they wanted. I tried to get Imagine Dragons tickets, and general admission started off at $25, Denverticket took these exact same tickets and advertised them to the public for $79. When it is all that is available people would pay. I thought it was completely unfair because this is essentially scalping and I don’t see how it is illegal. They are also season ticket holders for most MLB teams as well and if tickets didn’t sell the day of they would have a scalper come in and they would sell the tickets to a scalper who would go walk outside of Coors Field. Denverticket also works closely with Stubhub, and at the last minute they will sell their tickets to Stubhub who then goes and sells them to the public. The owners and their manager were making insane amounts of money, and I couldn’t stand being employed their because of how they treated the employees and the business itself seems very fishy. I’ve thought for a while that it needs to be investigated and I hope someone does something about it!
