I figured she would go down eventually. My daughter purchased from her ad on Craigs 4 premium season passes for 800.00 in the summer of 2010. I am as skeptical as they come so I asked her to find out if they had a reciept , had the tickets in hand ( not go here or there and pick them up) and of course went with her to sit in the car with the kids( cell phone in hand of course) while she handed the lady 800.00.
There was a receipt from a travel agency and the hard plastic ticket. Here story was that she was to move to the orange co area since her hubby was being transfered and had a travel agent friend of a friend get her passes to ...ease her kids pain of moving away from friends etc....and whoops the transfer fell through and she had to just recoup what she could.
In my dd research for others who had this same scam pulled on them , none involved shared tickets or cheap tickets ( which are also an agency running shared tickets all over socal ). All of these persons so far had hard plastic tickets.
So where did they come from? Esp the AP's ???? are that many just tossed when used and people go thru the garbage looking for them??? Dd waited until Christmas time when my son in law was home from school to take the family to Disneyland to share the holiday magic . I have never heard her cry like she did when she called and said "...mom that woman stole my money and the boys christmas presents..." we all feel so violated when something like this happens to us.
Disney said they had no idea how these AP cards were out but that they were no good. Thankfully they gave them on day park hoppers to get in that day I am impressed and it did restore a bit of the magic.
Luckly they were able to scrape enough together to get the military deal and enjoy the stay that they had planned for the holidays.
As of today after the article link on Micechat two more police reports were filled in Placer Co, hopefully more have come up in other areas also. This woman was bound to fall you just dont mess with Disney lovers.
Any one else have any updates???
