Dont refund him. So if there's an earthquake and they cancelled the show you are going to give him the money back too?

is the venue offering a refund? Shouldn't be your responsibility anymore imo. And the police won't do anything

It's a civil matter, not a police matter (if the tickets were fake, for example, it would be a police matter). However, he could still sue you and probably win (legally speaking, you are responsible for making sure that the thing you sell does what it's supposed to; being a "private sale" does not change that). Since you can probably get a refund, the best thing to do would be to give the guy his money back and get your refund.

He doesn't become the private insurance company of the guy when he sells tickets, tickets did what they were supposed to do same as if you bought them elsewhere.

Depends. The guy could be a total crazy ass and could cause trouble over a measly concert ticket. If you think he's crazy than do the refund. No point seeing you on front par of newspaper because of a concert ticket.

There's crazy people out there.

I sold a pair of tickets to somebody on kijiji on Monday for a show that is happing on Friday
I found out Wenesday the show got cancelled and the guy wants his money back
What should I do?
Should I give him his money back or not?
I don't think I should because he is the owner of the tickets now not me.
He is saying now he will call the cops if I don't pay him back.
You sold the guy tickets that became worthless. Morally, you have an obligation to return the money.

If he can get a refund back either from you or the organizers of the show, I don't see where the issue is. Either you refund him the money and you get the refund from the show or he goes to get the refund from the show.

Thanks everybody for your replys
The tickets were won from me from a radio contest.
I was thinking of giving him half the money but

He has my phone # and knows where I live

I don't think this is correct: the seller sold tickets and fully fulfilled his obligations of the sale. The fact that the show was subsequently cancelled is now the responsibility of some third party and is outside the scope of the transaction in question. The buyer would be foolish to sue as he will not win and will have to pay his legal bills as well as yours.

And so the story changes! But I don't think anything changes except the level of your guilty conscience!

I don't think I should give him his money back because when I sold him the tickets the concert
was still on.
That would mean he is the owner of the tickets now not me
Still I'm not sure what to do
I might just give him half his money back

shouldn't have allowed him to know where you lived. Even if the transcation went well, u don't want to give unnecessary information.

If you live in a home without security and have vulnerable family members then u should seriously consider refunding back the money, if the concert wont be rescheduled . Half the money back wont do it either. He wants all of it.

Exactly. The OP has no legal, ethical or moral obligation to refund the tickets to the buyer. The buyer bought the right to see a show with all the rights attached to that ticket. He stands in the same place as the original ticket holder after buying the tickets. He does not hold an option to demand a refund from the original ticket holder along with owning the tickets. His remedy now as the lawful owner of the tickets is against the organizers of the show who originally sold the tickets.

Now, whether the purchaser will send some goon after the the OP to 'collect' the refund is a different story. I wouldn't mess with these kind of people if you think they are that way.
