    michael jackson refund information

    aeg have just announced that you can either have a full refund or,alternatively,you can have the ticket as a souveneir!

    personally I consider this to be the most cynical marketing ploy in history. I had tickets for an august show,the tickets are already printed anyways and aeg want me to pay them 75 quid for it INSTEAD of a refund?

    tasteless,to be chasing the cash less than a week after his death.

    i know, it was on gmtv this morning :-(
    thing is these tickets will end up on ebay as well going for ridiculous amounts of money :roll:

    they should issue the tickets and give a refund and keep the postage and adm in fee -
    I for one would have like to keep the ticket but I dont think I want to pay over £80 for that priviledge

    accoring to teh radio this morn they are loosing alot of money so are trying to recoup by offering the tickets what a sham!! :roll:

    It's just something else for the touts to sell on E-bay for a fortune

    I don't think many people will keep the tickets as a souvenir unless they have more money than they can stick in their pockets...it's recession time and people are losing their homes...do they really want £80 of worthless piece of paper that's been printed out in there 10,000's?

    I still have the tickets from 1988 priced at £17.50 and from 1992 priced at £22.50..Think ile be taking the full refund on these..£338 is a lot of money for 4 pieces of paper..

    I bet they have insurance against this also. They can't be losing that much money?

    its due to aeg only being properly insured for 10 of the 50 gigs and the insurance on those 10 may be voided due to the possible invlovement of drugs...i.e. he was falsley insured as he passed medical on drugs etc....so effectively even when the refund the money to people they will lose millions I think...thats just what I established from news reports...thus they are trying to scam people by saying these tickets will be collectable....this could be the case but there are a possible 800000 in circulation thus its a money making swizz

    However this could all be media hype etc

    isn't it typical..... you move out of home years ago & they remove all traces that you were ever there :whistling:

    Say you want a refund, then post them back in a ripped envelope.
    Must have been the postmen.

    nobody actually had tickets yet,you can either ask for a refund or have the tickets sent now.

    I didnt know nobody had tickets. Well thats a shame.

    I will be getting a refund, and spending the money on 15 of ]these...much more collectable :-D

    I think i would keep the ticket instead of a refund, if i was a major jackson fan. It would be a good collectable and be worth more than £80 in a few years.

    That someone might believe that is the essence of the scam.

    So I can either have my refund of over £500 or I could have 6 pieces of paper for a gig that he never actually did?

    I think I will be taking my money :lol:

    Isn't there something like 750, 000 tickets. How many will take up the offer and how much will they eventually be worth. Think I'd take the money.

    they are about 800.000 tickets and say 25% keep them and and 75% get a refund that's 200.000 printed tickets will they ever be worth more in our life time..:thinking:

    that was my point...imagine if the ratio is reversed it could be 600 000 in circulation....would effectively be worth less then the cost of a ticket.

    My Mum said she read in the paper that someone said when they get their refund,they going send the £ to his kids.

    i agree although its sad that they have lost their father, they have probably never gone with out. There are plenty of children who would benefit a lot more.

    well they are already selling for more than the £80 or whatever you would get through the refund
    ebay item number: 300326673549 has reached £100

    How long for though, I think these are quick buys after hearing the news of them, I think we will see the price of them rapidly drop.

    I think we will probably see the ones not sold put into photo frames etc and sold off by AEG to companies to flog! In fact, I bet you can get a framed one for less than £80 in the next couple of years. I'll take my refund then maybe look out for a cheap one on play.com later on :lol:

    A problem may arise with people complaining about sellers making a profit out of MJ's death with these replacement tickets. If eBay pulled the plug on selling them then you'd be stuck with it.

    As stated can't see these going for much considering how many there may be.

    What's to stop the printers printing one for every seat that was sold and those that do not take up the option they sell them too. There could be 750K+ of these for sale then.

    If they only got £10 for each one that's £7.5 million.
