Petition to shut down Stubhub

This petition is aimed at getting the website called "StubHub" shut down. The reason behind this petition is that when tickets go on sale for a popular band or big sporting event TicketMaster is usually the website that sells the tickets charging at lease 15 dollars in convenience fees. Programs have been made that make it so scalpers can get a substantial amount of tickets at one time before a real fan could ever have a chance to buy them. These scalpers than charge up to ten times the face value for these tickets on "StubHub" which is owned by TicketMaster. When you buy tickets on "StubHub" you are charged more fees which go to TicketMaster again. I believe without "StubHub" the demand from scalpers would go down making it possible for real fans to get a shot at getting tickets at face value.

  • matthew marshall one of the worst kind of companies to exist. they are aiding and abetting in ticket scalping. ABC has stated that StubHub has "become the ticket scalper of the digital age"

  • Danielle It's ridiculous how these tickets are upcharged because Stubhub gives scalpers a way to profit off of being greedy. And on top of that, so many of the tickets don't work. After months of anticipation for an event, a refund from Stubhub doesn't help the disappointment you feel when you get to an arena and aren't admitted because some asshat ripped you off on what is supposed to be a reputable site.
