TicketMaster’s CAPTCHA Has Important Message For You About Ticketmaster

Ticketmaster is a frequent contender in our Worst Company in America tournament, and one of the most-loathed monopolies in the world. The company’s monopoly on ticket sales at many venues means that consumers have no choice but to do business with them, though. Reader Justin was doing just that when the company’s own website warned him to get out of the transaction while he still could.

In the past, Ticketmaster was known for CAPTCHAs so indecipherable that they were useless. This one is easy to read, but does it have a more important message for Justin?


“Are they trying to tell me something?” he wondered when he sent this message to Consumerist.
