After our Elton John concert was canceled 20 minutes after it was supposed to start last November we learned that the concert had been rescheduled for March. I called what I thought was a Ticketmaster number. They said I had to open a Ticketmaster account to get the refund and repurchase the tickets by going and buying a Ticketmaster gift card worth the value of the tickets. They said to call when I was at the store to make sure I bought the correct card. Since there were no Ticketmaster cards, they told me they were partners with Google Pay and to buy that one. For various reasons, this led me to 4 hours of driving and purchasing more cards that ended up costing me over $3,000! I contacted Amex, Discover and my bank to no avail. I filed a police report, set up a claim report with Google Pay and filed an ic3 report as well. I cannot believe that Google Pat has no ability to track these cards to who used them. They have photos of all of the cards and receipts. They said they are well aware that these scams are going on, but I have yet to hear anything from them.
