A Fort Worth lady said on Wednesday that she purchased concert tickets through fraud after seeing them advertised on Facebook.

How Her Account Got Hacked?

A new development has emerged: the lady identified as the seller claims that she was also a victim, and the Better Business Bureau is providing guidance on how to stay out of similar circumstances. According to Alice Shelley, her Facebook account was hacked last month.

“I immediately went to try to recover it and that wasn’t possible, so I contacted Facebook to let them know,” she explained. “They researched it and said that they didn’t find anything wrong with it.”

Shelley claimed that while her hacked page was still live, she had to make a new one. On her new account, she shared a PSA regarding the incident, but she also mentioned that individuals are still connecting with the previous account and being exploited.

Its So Frustrating

“Two things I’m not a hacker and a scammer thief, and that’s basically what it’s portraying me as,” she stated. “It’s very frustrating.” Victim number one is Keli Pisano.

She noticed a sale for concert tickets by Morgan Wallen on the page and last week, she transferred the hacker $450 via Venmo to purchase them. She claimed to have received the identical message Shelley had and that she, too, had been unsuccessful in getting Facebook to remove the page.

“It enrages me greatly,” Shelley remarked. “I hope Facebook will take action on this right away. They haven’t responded despite my repeated attempts to reach them, as well as those of my friends and relatives.”

According to the BBB, it is aware of these kinds of frauds. They advise against buying tickets from free web listings such as Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, and others.
