Oops, sorry, I thought you wanted the fake ones.

I've never paid to attend a New Years Eve party. Most places understand that they get more business without cover charges. Frankly; I think the businesses should be happy that I chose to patronize their establishment and leave it at that.

How can they even claim is it a civil matter?   Seems pretty blatantly fraud to me.

This is San Diego PD. There's no one to shoot or high speed chase to engage in, so it's not a real crime.

Huh?  San Diego has a very low crime rate.  Was ranked 9th safest city in the US by Forbes in 2010, and is well below the national average in most categories.  Are you getting San Diego mixed up with Detroit or something?

I'm saying that San Diego PD is more interested in shooting people and getting in car chases than going after crooks committing fraud.

Ya know, if my police department was more interested in crooks that commit fraud rather then chasing someone robbing a store with a gun, i'd be moving pretty damn quick or as people in detroit call it "Tuesday"

I had a friend watch as thieves stole the muffler off his Rabbit. He called the police, complete with the plate number of the truck they were in. The cops said there was nothing they could do.

I'd try to talk to tier 2 or 3 tech support at that point.

Or tell them that you (your friend) was going to carry a gun and shoot the person driving that truck as soon as you find them.

Snarfangel:

"And I think they were smoking pot!"

Sigh...  I did that once.  Party down the street.  LOUD.  Sunday night, and I had to work the next day.  I tend to ignore shiat on Friday or Saturday night.  It's a college town, and I did my share of noise making back then.  Weeknights though, and I want a little quiet in return.  I go over to ask them to chill out.  Get laughed at.  Shrug.  Walk back.  Noise gets louder.  So I call the cops, tell them I want to file a disturbing the peace report.  "Nothing we can do, sir.  All of our units are busy handling real crime."

"I think I smelled pot there, too."

"What was that address again?"

2 minutes later, there's at least 2 cop cars there.  Within 15, nearly the entire street was full.

I haven't really had any problems down that way in a couple of years.

End CSB.

They have the lowest rate in murders, but the highest rate in "accidents."

If you are stupid enough to buy NYeve party tickets on Craigslist, well, you probably don't now when the police are giving you the brush off. Probably.

I find it hard to see why this is a civil matter when it involves theft, isn't that a crime?

And usually fake tickets are easy to spot, but still you bought tickets to omfg concert, you're not the brightest person to start with.

I think someone hit the nail on the head earlier; police are cooking the books to keep their crime stats better/good.  See, if they don't take a complaint, then there's no crime and they can say they have less/no unsolved crimes.

I wondered the same thing. Sure seems to be a crime to me.

Craigslist fraud is a pretty safe crime.  I was ripped off on an apartment deposit years ago in Canada and the police were about as interested in investigating as they were in working an unpaid double shift on Christmas.  I've heard similar stories from others in Canada and the US, and in each case the police state that nothing can be done.

If someone wants to make a quick buck over the holidays, selling bogus shiat to people online is foolproof if they watch their ass afterwards.

Some asshat ripped off "a friend of mine" like that and the next day he found his car with the tickets crazy glued to his windshield and locks and wipers all with lots of glue. I'd bet it cost him more & he didn't feel like such a smart guy after he tried to get in his car to dive it the next day.
 
2014-01-02 08:02:13 AM  
How do we know that the person's name that is on the ticket is the same guy that they met and bought the tickets from?  I mean the guy they are harassing could be legit and sold his tickets to a scammer that is using his name to sell those tickets.

And he just sat there and watched it? That's when I would go out with a shotgun and polietly act them just what in the fark they were doing.

CSB:

Had someone ram a shopping cart into my car door at a grocery store. A witness saw it and got their plate number. According to the witness they had done it intentionally and where laughing about it. It seemed like vandalism to me. I called the cops and the guy showed up to take a report. He says "Well, you might have a plate number, but they have  probably  moved, and once they do, we've really got no way to track them."

I just looked at him for a moment and asks "Are you serious? You're actualy suggesting that, not only did they pack up and move their entire house in the course of two hours to avoid a vandalism charge that they don't know anyone saw, but that the police can't figure out a change of address? I bet if some white biatch got raped, you'd have them in cuffs in two minutes"

The cop acts like he's doing me the greatest service in the world and actualy looks up the plate. "Well, their address is in a poor neighborhood. They probably can't pay for it anyway. You could take it to court, but a judge isn't gonna rule against someone with no money, so it would be a waste of time"

O_o "Did you actualy just say that if I am poor, I can go over to your house and smash your car up, and no one could do anything about it?"

"I'd kick your ass if you tried"

"I see. So when it's YOUR shiat, you give a damn"

'Have a nice night sir"

He was at work at the time. He didn't confront them because he figured it would be better to let the police handle it.
