\u201cLast night we told you this Charlotte couple was scammed out of hundreds of dollars trying to buy @DaveChappelle tickets on Craigslist. Tonight we were there as DAVE HIMSELF hand-delivered the group tickets! Awesome! @WBTV_News\u201d— Alex Giles WBTV (@Alex Giles WBTV) 1550189925
"It's good that people know always get your tickets from reliable sources and take any opportunity that’s presented to you to be kind especially if it’s something easy to do," Chappelle said in an interview with WBTV.
Dickens told WBTV that Eddie loves Chappelle and had thought to get him tickets for the comedian's Valentine's Day comedy show. Unfortunately, she missed her opportunity to purchase them at the box office and resorted to Craigslist to find tickets.
Dickens came across four tickets and purchased all of them, wanting to invite another couple for the show.
"They said they were available. The person said they could provide proof of purchase so I was like 'great,'" Dickens explained.
However, after transferring $500 to the seller through Apple Pay, the seller never transferred the tickets and stopped communicating with her.
Fortunately, everything worked out in the end.
