"I attend events at the Youkey Theatre-Lakeland FL and receive emails regularly from the Theatre regarding upcoming events. I received what I thought was my usual email from the theatre regarding the upcoming Bill
show. However, ...more the email was a look-a-like from this
, a VERY GOOD look-alike as I purchased my tickets for the Bill
show via this email believing it was the official Youkey Theatre site. The tickets were $178 each for Pit (front row) seats and there were only 2 left...exactly what I needed. So I purchased them. Well HUGE MISTAKE on my part for not reading the fine print. I was actually purchasing the event tickets through this
and got scammed big time. The real cost of the tickets were $73.50 each.
added a fee of $209.00 above the ticket price (for a chili recipe) and an additional "service fee" of $97.90 and $15.00 shipping!!!!! The "Great Chili" recipe came with this comment, "We hope your event is as hot as the chili !!!" I am usually very cautious when purchasing anything online, but
fooled me; their email and sales site page was so close in similarity to the Theatre's official site that I thought I was purchasing directly from the theatre site like I normally do. Of course I have no recourse in this particular transaction because
covered their scam well in the fine print. Lesson learned, scam me once shame on you; scam me twice, shame on me. PLEASE BEWARE OF PURCHASING TICKETS FOR EVENTS ONLINE AND DO NOT PURCHASE ANY TICKETS THROUGH A SERVICE CALLED '
' AKA MIKESTICKETSHACK.COM!!!! READ THE FINE PRINT PLEASE. "

and team is very professional and reliable. He answered any and all questions. I never questioned his honesty. He came through every time with the best! The tickets were delivered on time as expected. Look forward to doing business again soon!
"They always seem to have what I am looking for, They are friendly, convenient in fact if I can't get there to pick them up and they can be emailed they will email them to me. Its a small office but they are very friendly and helpful."
"My experience with them was fine. It was completely satisfactory. I got the tickets as expected. I knew I was paying more for the price, which is over the face value. The thing that I like about them is that you can go to the stadium or arena, you can see where there are tickets, in what sections, at what prices and that make it easy to find places."
"We would say that we would use them again in the future but not our first choice since their handling price is high. However they do the job and their service is fine. We would tell others that they would enjoy the show but to check other companies first due to the pricing which is the going rate plus a fee."
"The only reason I went to them was because that is the only place I could get my tickets, which isn’t good because there wasn’t much competition. It however worked out well for me. They were pretty fast in their responsiveness."
