FORT MYERS, Fla. - If you're trying to get badges for the Masters look out for a hazard that may keep you from the greens in Augusta. Call for Action Reporter, Melissa Yeager, got reports of at least two out-of-town golf fans who say they paid to go to the prestigious golf event, but got nothing in return.
The people tell WINK News they saw the tickets for sale through the web site, craiglist, and asked for credentials to make sure the seller was legitimate. They got a copy of the seller's drivers license, his address, phone number and even a contract. But once they sent off their money, they say they did not get their badges.
The seller, who lives in Fort Myers, told WINK News he has been in contact with the buyers and is working to get everyone's money back. He says this year the controversy over Tiger Woods drove prices for the Masters up so high, he couldn't get the badges for the promised prices. Again, he tells WINK that he plans to refund everyone's money.
