Anyone heard from this guy? Sounds like a scam to me....

Hi, my name is Armand Thibaud and I am from Langley, BC, Canada. I still have the 4 tickets for the BCS Championship game, LSU v Alabama, sec 141, row 13, $850 for the pair, $1700 for all 4.
I can send the tickets with overnight services today and you can receive them on Wednesday.
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 use them.
My company will pay for the delivery of the tickets with the overnight delivery so you can receive them on Wednesday.
These are hard tickets and now we are looking to get back what was paid for them.
If you are still interested please back to me and let's work on the delivery and payment arrangements.
Best

Armand












tell him you are going to fly to Canada and pay him cash for the tickets. That should be the end of that.

We got the same email, have you found anything else about this? I'm guessing it's a scam.

You are guessing this is a scam? OMG Yes it is a scam. Come on people this is common sense you are talking about. Would you really consider buying from someone out of the country for something like this?

had a person email me selling an Alabama Student ticket, but didn't know section or row. have to wait until Gameday until they can physically pick up the ticket.

If he doesn't want to exchange cash for ticket on game day would any of you worry about dealing with it?

Yes, mentioned over and over again if you buy off the streets cash only exchanges hands when you are safely in the Dome at the gate!

What is this guy's screen name? If he did it once then he'll try again. The admins can look at IP addresses so if he comes back under a different screen name but posts from the same computer, they can catch him before he scams again.


I've heard it easy to get around using the same ip address. Don't know for sure though

Saw where one poster guesstimated a scammer's possible income at $30K. Consider that like most ticket "brokers", scammers are doing this for all college & professional games, concerts, etc, not just LSU games by any means. A good friend is a legitmate broker & he works his arse off & makes $50K+. So, using a mass mail scam, the money goes thru the roof.

Post dating a check won't do you any good. The banks don't care what date is on it. They don't hold checks waiting for that future date in your check to roll around.

not sure if this has been mentioned in this thread, but I keep getting emails asking me to call or text some number in response to my ticket post, are people phishing for phone numbers or something on here to?

Before I had a smart smartphone, I would ask that people respond to me by text as I'm not ALWAYS at the computer.

Haven't heard of (or had) any problems with people texting.
