The CEO of the secondary ticket site, Ticketnetwork, has been charged with several crimes after an altercation this weekend at an Academy Awards party according to HartfordBusiness.com . Don Vaccaro is taking some time off after being charged with a second-degree hate crime and several others after groping a women and yelling racial slurs at a bouncer.
If you’ve shopped for tickets online you’ve seen his websites. Ticketnetwork has dozens of sites selling tickets online and they occupy many of the prime spots on Google for ticket searches. Sometimes you will find the Ticketnetwork brand on the site but often you don’t.
Most ticket brokers loathe working with Vaccaro’s Ticketnetwork for the way he does business, but these charges take it to another level altogether. Preferred Seating Tickets quit doing business with Ticketnetwork many years ago over his business practices and recommend that ticket buyers be careful of where they buy tickets on the internet.
