There's a Big Data Tech Conference in Boston this March and I bought two tickets. Unfortunately, something really important came up so I guess I have to let go of the tickets. I attended a couple of years back and it was well worth it for networking, not to mention the excellent classes and tutorials. If you're interested, please click the link below:
If you know someone who'd be interested in attending, please help me out by letting them know about this. Btw, I'm selling the tickets for only $995 each (worth $1495 each).
Thank you and have a great week ahead!
The provided link does not support the claims of private party scalping sale, seems possibly a HailCorporate promotion of the conference using an alias.
The conference in question currently costs $1145 to register, and you get a $100 gift card back, so if this person did buy the ticket already, it actually cost him/her $1045.
Be on your toes guys, this is probably just an ad.
Note this: "You can receive a full refund, less a $150 registration fee, for cancellations made by Friday, February 28, 2014."
So, if OP really did pay $1495 as she claims, it would make far more sense to simply apply for a refund and lose $150 rather than lose $500 as she claims she is losing.
> Ah, are first posts that are scalping tickets and making deliberately misrepresentations from someone using a fake name welcome now? Awesome!
We don't know for sure that this is the case here.

I found Profit and Loss's comment drily funny and actually supportive of Scott's comments. "Mary White" (?) and "her" "post" also struck me as suspicious.
On the other hand, if I still lived around Boston I would definitely pop in for the free exhibit hall. I wonder what happens there.
