5:26 am
dan of legislator had two cold play tickets for their concert at levi's stadium in september. he needed to sell them. he went to stubhub to do just that. dan told us he thought the process was really simple. he was surprised how easy it was. he uploaded images of the tickets. there was one thing the software didn't note automatically, that the seats were limited view, and that was printed right there on the tickets. well, when a buyer purchased the tickets and they noticed they were limited view, that person complained to stubhub and they canceled the sale. not only did they cancel the sale, but charged dan $253. that was the additional cost to the buyer to purchase another pair of tickets equivalent to the ones he thought he was buying from dan. dan was floored. he thought he did everything he was supposed to when uploading the tickets. unfortunately he did make a mistake. stubhub showed a screen shot of the disclosure section of the
5:27 am
process where dan should have shared his seats were limited view. dan insisted it was an honest mistake, and stubhub ultimately agreed with him. so it refunded dan the $253 as a one-time courtesy. this is a good lesson for all of us. take your time when navigating a process like this, read through everything and don't skip any steps. by the way, dan went on to successfully upload and sell his cold play tickets on stubhub. if you have a consumer complaint, you can call us at 1-888-996-tips or visit tomorrow, leather furniture that's not completely leather and the questions you need to ask. have a great day. >> sometimes it's pleather. >> that's the best stuff. tomorrow you can ask chris yourself in person if you have any questions. he'll be there with telemundo's ellen fernandez at the san jose downtown farmers market between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
