From Carley: Meet and Greet with One Direction at the ACC in Toronto on July 10’th. The boys were hands down the nicest most genuine celebs I’ve ever met. They took the time out to get to know you and were genuinely interested in what you had to say. Lovely, hilarious boys, we all just danced the entire meet and greet. Louis was playing with the music and we were all dancing about. Cannot wait to have the chance to meet them again, fantastic group of guys!
One mother from River Falls, Wisconsin fell victim trying to buy tickets to One Direction sold out show. Molly Schultz revealed that she went on Craigslist to buy tickets for her 14-year-old daughter, Leahy. There she found an ad offering two tickets on the main floor for $150 apiece. In an exchange of text messages, the seller would not meet her in person, but asked her to buy a pre-paid card.
Schultz: ‘I wrote, ‘I’m sorry, I’m uncomfortable doing it this way. I’m afraid I’ll be scammed.’ Then person then claimed to be a St. Paul police officer out of town on a family emergency: ‘I wanted to make sure that it was real, and so I said ‘do you really have a picture of the tickets?’ And they sent me a picture of the tickets.’
She ultimately relented, bought a pre-paid card and gave the person the PIN number that allowed them to empty the card of cash: ‘The next day, when I didn’t get any tickets, I said, ‘if you overnighted, they are not here yet. I am really feeling upset. That’s the last I’ve heard.’ Her daughter said: ‘I started crying.’ But not because I didn’t get the tickets, but because my mom spent all that money just to try to get me what I wanted.’
