I agree it does probably meet most jurisdictions' definition of theft ("theft" and "fraud" are separate offenses under Texas law, though both arguably occurred here). The terms do arguably appear to...

I don't know if 20% is the known threshold for any other virus (not to my knowledge)...but I've never seen an estimate as low as 20% for COVID-19, and I believe the general consensus of experts is...

That's probably true; Stubhub engaged in risky business practices that gave it significant advantage over its competitors in the ticket "resale" (scalping) marketplace.

Can one still downgrade the card to have a prorated portion of the fee refunded, or am I remembering an option that no longer exists? And do we know if the retention offers disappear from the system...

Had two one-way flights booked for October. Received notice the outbound was changed—annoyingly from a direct flight to not—but it let me change it to another direct flight on the same day. Then I...
