Anybody who has used Ticketmaster’s website between October 21st 1999 and 19th October 2011 is to receive a refund of $1.50 per ticket.
Ticketmaster is being forced to credit $1.50 per ticket order (up to 17 orders) to customers due to the fact that they profited from “processing fees” without declaring same.
A class action was taken by two Plaintiffs who claimed that the charges were illegal. According to Court documents, the original claim which was filed in October 2003 also implicates UPS’s delivery price for expedited delivery of tickets as being deceptive. Anyone who is part of the UPS sub class of the lawsuit are also entitled to an additional $5 credit per ticket.
Credits won’t be issued prior to April 15th 2012 and should come within 30 days after final approval of the settlement which is currently scheduled for the 29th of May 2012. Reports suggest that the settlement will cost Ticketmaster a lot of money.
