OLYMPIA — The state attorney general is trying to help those who suffered through more than bad feelings in the Seahawks loss Super Bowl XLIX loss.

State Attorney General Bob Ferguson encourages any fan who bought tickets to the game from a broker, only to later be told the price of tickets was too high and be left without a ticket, to report their plight to his office. Ferguson said even if the brokerage company refunded the money, many fans were left in Arizona after spending hundreds on airfare and accommodations.

“Not only were these fans unable to attend the game,” Ferguson said. “But they were also out hundreds — if not thousands — of dollars for the cost of airfare and accommodations.”

Ferguson said the office will review all complaints and determine whether certain brokers’ actions violated Washington State’s Consumer Protection Act.

    Complaint filed against… They are responsible for thousands of dollars of loss for our trip, airfare, hotel, rental car, time loss due to time off taken from work, etc… Awful awful experience. They have a history of this apparently, yet are still in business. We need the AG to help all those affected by this and other scams from companies like SeatGeek, VividSeats, CapitalCity, etc. We need a class action lawsuit I think
