It Appears As If The Woman Selling Year Old Kid Rock Tickets Is Actually Just A Confused Older Lady Who Doesn’t Understand How The Facebook Machine Works

 

Loading...

Earlier today we published a blog about a woman who was selling tickets to Kid Rock and Brantley Gilbert at the Xfinity Center, alleging to be raising money for her niece with cancer. The problem was that the tickets were for a concert that took place in September 2018, which certainly seemed scammy. Turns out it was actually a case of older lady doesn’t know how the Internet machine works, because she messaged explaining her dilemma.

Here’s the deal. I reached out to her about the tickets on Friday and a couple times over the weekend. They were up all weekend and I never heard back. A bunch of people sent this to us, it seemed shady so we blogged about it. But here’s the same post she made over a year ago for the tickets.

So what looks like may have happened here is she put the tickets on sale on Facebook marketplace, then shared it to the local community pages last year. I’m guessing she got some sort of notification from Facebook about the one year anniversary of a post or something and she hit the share button again. This time it came up at $180 instead of $160, but I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt because she really sounds like she has no fucking clue what’s going on. If I’m being scammed here then so be it. But there’s just something about an older lady navigating the Facebook machine the wrong way that I just trust.

    My parents are around the same age as her. Trying to watch them use ANYTHING to do with social media, cell phones, and any other electronics, is a nightmare. So I believe her..

    I fucking hate facebook. We have a local for-sale group for our town. I put a couple of free items up on curb-alert. I started getting IMs from all over New England “Hey can you hold it for me, I’m on my way right now”. I’m like “WTF, no way all these people are a member of this local for-sale group”. Turns out fuckbook, without my knowledge, also posted my listing to their “marketplace” and was showing my post to people like 200 miles away. I fucking hate fuckbook.

    Being 62 isn’t an excuse but being retarded is. If she said she had fallen off a turnip truck without her helmet, then I might be inclined to believe her lame attempt at; “Derp…how does it all work.”

    Was this on facebook marketplace? Yes…that happened to me. I sold a musical instrument and I didn’t mark it sold. The inquiries ensued until I fixed it. Poor lady.

    My mother is 62 and uses Facebook to post pictures and use banners While occasionally commenting on family members posts. She has no clue how to navigate this website and pretty much all she knows how to do is comment “my handsome son” on my profile pics. I’m crying laughing because it reminds me of her. You dropped the ball on this one bad. You should be embarrassed. Poor woman is confused. 62 year olds should not have Facebook though. My mom took a picture of me and posted it as her profile picture. Problem was she posted an autism awareness banner around it. I don’t have autism. They don’t understand what they are doing.

      Confused boomer, I wish we could choose a laughing face and not just likes, that’s such a good story. I read it out loud to my husband and had trouble speaking because I was laughing so hard. Your mom sounds sweet:-)

    CRIPES! I’m 62. Am I an “older man?” The internet IS a pain in the ass if you’re 62. I can handle about 80% of the web stuff, but my kids grew up with the net, so, we’re a tad slow. On the other hand, I saw Bob Marley and Elvis.

    The first lie is when she says she paid 220.00 for both the tickets and it says right on the ticket it was $77.00 so is she so old she can’t add either. Sorry I think she got caught and is playing silly grandma games haha

    Also just noticed that even at the “reduced” price of $160 for the pair shes charging $3 apiece above face value according to the pic provided. Me thinks you were right to trust your first instincts.

    I got no clue how zuckerberg.com works but if she had somehow accidently reposted something from a year ago the price should have remained the same no? Or does Fb automatically convert for inflation?

    “Looks like she thought it would be OK to use a disease that has caused unspeakable heartache and tragedy for millions of people in order to scam people out of their hard earned money so she can live the high life.”

    or not.

    Whatever, right?

    Well who really cares about finding out the facts. Just toss up a post slamming her and her husband without really investigating

    Figure out the rest later.
