Post ticket scam
NEWARK, N.J. – Three men charged with using computer programs to illegally buy more than a million concert tickets for resale are due in federal court in New Jersey on Tuesday.

Kenneth Lowson, Kristofer Kirsch and Joel Stevenson, all of California, face arraignment on conspiracy, wire fraud and other charges in a 43-count indictment unsealed Monday. The wire fraud counts each carry a 20-year maximum prison sentence.

A fourth man, Faisal Nahdi, is overseas and expected to surrender in the next few weeks.

Prosecutors say the company formed by the men, Wiseguy Tickets, used computer programs to bypass safeguards meant to restrict the number of tickets that each customer can buy. The men are accused of reselling tickets to brokers for a profit estimated at $29 million.

What exactly happened with KingRhino? I checked his profile and he last visited the forums Tue Feb 23, 2010 8:03 am.

Ok, I may have answered my own question by looking back at this thread http://waneefestival.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4613&start=20.

thanks Alex..I really do feel badly about him leaving. He said some things but overall I think he was a good guy and I considered him a friend.

wasn't a huge fan of his flashing avatar, but that's a different story. ;)

sigh

I thought he enjoyed the forum, but in the end he pretty much said we were a bunch of losers who only want to talk about getting effed up. I'm sure he was angry, maybe he didn't mean it, but if that is how he felt then he probably just didn't want to participate anymore. I didn't take it personally, I hope no one else does either. I'm sure someone will run across hm at Wanee..if I do, I'm buyin him a brew!

He is a good guy, and it's too bad people misinterpret him. He's sarcastic to a degree more than most people, but I just don't take it personally and roll with it, and even jab back at him most of the time.
And if you get to meet him in person, he's cool as hell too!
Sure would be nice if he came back around here.... but I am at least hoping to see him at Wanee, etc.
