    Red flag? There's a reason for those gut feelings.
    How do you know the money wasn't counterfeit? And you'd be the ONLY one on surveillance who paid with cash!
    Also, with just the info on an ID, you can generally open a credit card or have accounts transferred to a new address.
    BTW, why does BuzzFeed make it SO easy to find it's employees? Im thinking of the young woman who was stalked, and now this video... makes me think, given age and maturity level, it's just NOT safe or smart BuzzFeed. I have kids ur age, I would hope they wouldn't do anything like this. Better to be cautious and safe.

  • Ben Cofield
    Ben Cofield 20 days ago +166

    The clickbait is real
    For people who are confused, what she did was accidentally help a ticket scalper. Ticket scalping is when someone buys large amounts of tickets for the purpose to resell them, usually at a higher price. Ticket scalpers buy tickets in bulk, which can be anywhere between 10-200 tickets at once, sometimes more. The purpose is to artifically restrict the supply of the good (tickets) and making the venue be "sold out" to drive up the price of the tickets and also how much consumers would be willing to spend on one.
    The reason this is bad, and also regulated in a lot of places, is because (most obviously) it rips off consumers, making them pay 1.5x, 2x, 3x, 10x more for something that should have been much less. This also hurts the original vendor because they are being exploited. On top of this it can give a lot of bad publicity for the venue/artist/etc because people might think they are overcharging or are too pricey, and, in the future, be less willing to support them. Also if not all the tickets are sold due to the higher prices, a show that was supposedly sold out will have lots of empty seats, possibly giving bad publicity and taking away from the host.
