Synopsis With Edward Gould / Creative Artists Group and Events 3-28-12
On January 21 2012 I recieved a call from Edward Gould explaining to me that he had a great contact to get Event Tickets like The Super Bowl and concerts.
I agreed to met with him that day at his home at 3455 Erva St. # 122,Las Vegas Nevada, 89117.
He showed me contracts that were written up by his attorney Thomas Michaelides at TCM Law at= 2340 Paseo Del Prado, Suite D-206 , Las Vegas , Nevada, 89102.
There were various contracts like a Broker Agreement for The 2012 Super Bowl , ect.
At first I was not that sure yet to do business with him until his Attorney Tom called me and told me he was a close and personal friend of Eddie for 18 years and he had never had any ticket related problems with him.
So,I agreed to do business with him and began to list his inventory on my business sites.
As a licenced Ticket Broker . As time went on we started selling this inventory such as Super Bowl The Masters Golf and The NCAA Final Four.
We agreed to become full partners and actually met together with my wife Irene,Eddie Gould and Tom in Tom Michaelides office. I think this was on February 28 or 29th ?
We were there to discuss the Broker Agreement, collateral and a trust Agreement about where Eddie gets his inventory and that the person had to remain silent.
I was told his name was "Jeff" and he works on the board of Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles and he had to remain silent.
During this meeting I received copies of property in Arizona that Eddie was going to give me as collateral because the inventory
was not going to be in hand until 3-27-12.
The meeting went really well, we had an agreement and was told by Tom he would finish typing it up and promised to have it
emailed to me the next day,in which I never received.
It is not rare for Ticket Brokers across the country to presale inventory because it don't get released until late like a week of the event.
As time passed we were making plans to buy other events like concerts in mostly Los Angeles. Eddie had mentioned he could get great inventory through Jeff and said he was a personal friend of David Geffen. Eddie also included Steve Buzil @ Sit Close Tickets at 3761 N. Racine , Chicago , Ill.
We ended up doing a contract with Myself , SitClose,Eddie (Creative Artists) for 9 Master 7-Day Access Badges from April 2 Through April 8.
This was for a total of 32,400.00 in whice Steve Buzil sent to me and I deposited in Creative Artist Account.
Then we also did a deal with Myself , SitClose and Eddie (Creative Artist) for 12 tickets for the NCAA Final Four on 3-31-12 and 4-2-12
This deal was for 6 front row seats in section 114 row 1 for 3-31-12 and section 114 row 1 and 113 row 1.
This was a total of 24,000.00 . Steve Buzil shipped the check and Eddie was paid.
Then as time was going by I was selling his inventory in all the resale channels like Razorgator.com,Ticketnow.com, Vivid Seats.com.,other
brokers in the country and also Ebay.
As stated In my notes for shipping on all these tickets they would ship on 3-27-12.
On March 23 2012 Eddie told me he was flying back to ESPN Headquarters in Connecticut to pick up the tickets and we would have them by March 26 to ship them on the 27th.
I was a little concerned about this and Eddie knew it,so he asked his contact "Jeff" to call me to tell me he was sending Eddie to Espn to get the tickets. After being more concerned I stopped by Eddie's house on 3-25-12, I then found out that the whole family had totally moved out .
We talked to a neighbor and he had confimed that Eddie and his family moved out on 3-24-12 and the neighbor also said he saw Eddie there that day,all the while I was told he was in Connecticut.
After I reached Eddie he told me the tickets were going to ship as I never led on that I knew hw had moved and that Eddie told me to get all the shipping details ready to ship all the tickets as I did on 3-27 and 3-28. All of the details and fed ex label were created and emailed to his contact at "creative artists group & events" <email@example.com>.
After many many customers did not recieved any (not one) ticket, I recieved call after call from people wanting to know where their tickets were. I'm getting personal threats and chargebacks,I was suspended to list anymore on Ticketsnow and I will now be ruined.
I'm owed 5,709.50 for a Chicago Broker 11,433.25 to another Chicago Broker 12,500.00 to a San Francisco Broker, 10025.00 to Customer in ,New Jersey 38,219.00 to various customers on Ebay, 12,600.00 to a New York Broker, 56,400.00 to Sit Close, Chicago, 1920.00 to a New Jersey Broker.
There may be more charges pending as many brokers had to replace tickets at more money,plus travel and hotel rooms.
On 3-27-12 I called Thomas Michaelides (Eddies attorney) And he acted very surprised that Eddie had done this and denied
any business association at all with Eddie.
Also : I sent all my customers Eddies Phone Number and Eddie claims he has NO tickets for anyone.
Eddie has all my money that was paid to him for cost of inventory. I have made NO profits from this as we were supposed to split
after the Events were over.
Thomas is a very good Liar.
