Did StubHub Cheat Preet? Former US Attorney for NYC Paid for Springsteen Ticket, Never Got It


Former US Attorneys. They’re just like us.

Preet Bharara, ex US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is panicking with good reason. He says on Twitter that he bought a ticket to tonight’s final “Springsteen on Broadway” and that the seller has not sent it. This is not going to end well if that ticket doesn’t show up pronto. Bigger question: why is this famed attorney/author/podcaster going on StubHub? Why didn’t he call Springsteen’s PR or manager? This is not going to end well for StubHub or for the seller!

Bharara adds: “The wait time to speak to someone at @TeamStubHub is currently three hours”
