Hey, remember that guy we told you about who managed to snag a ticket to the World Series opener for just $3 ($6 with fees)? Well, as fate would have it, StubHub has decided to cancel his purchase, citing the sale as "fradulent." Here is a description from Erik about what happened: Apparently the seller contacted stub hub because I got an email saying they were canceling my $6 World Series ticket.Also I got a poorly worded voicemail saying that the ticket was fake and that I was protected by the fan protect guarantee. I'd get my 6 bucks back. Woohoo. I called stubhub and spent 41 min on the phone with them and spoke to 4 different people. The story changed to that the seller of the ticket had committed fraud. I really think that they just listed it wrong and complained and stubhub is acting so that they can get a large commission off of the ticket by reselling it for full price or something to that effect.I asked them to comp me a comparable ticket but they said there weren't any available. I said there were literally dozens of tickets in the same section or adjacent sections, but they refused saying they couldn't.After more time on the phone I finally got them to give me a $50 account credit. That's it. I'm pretty pissed because I was going to take 2 half days, fly wed to boston from Pittsburgh and back Thursday morning after the game.It would've been great to show up and be the guy who got to go for $3. Wow. What a bummer. And you thought you were having a bad day. Update: So, just when it looked like Erik was going to get stiffed by StubHub, the ticket company decided to come through and provide him with a replacement ticket. Well, this is according to the head of communication, who spoke to Deadspin about the situation. A recent sale for a $6 ticket to Game 1 of the 2013 World Series ticket has proven to be a fraudulent listing. Per company policy, the sale has been cancelled and StubHub will make it right for the buyer by providing replacement tickets in a comparable location at our expense. Via Deadspin
