UPDATE: Ottawa really is a fantastic city with great fans, players, and companies. Originally Adnan (@sens_adnan) had offered to replace the Blues tickets the morning of the game if Logan didn't follow through. I politely declined his offer as it really wasn't his problem. My plan was to donate two pairs from my season tickets to the winners. They wouldn't be 100s, but in the 300s. Not the greatest, but I didn't want to see the two winners walk away with nothing. When I let one of the winners know about my plan, he refused to accept them because it wasn't my "responsibility to make up for someone else's misgivings."
However, after tweeting out this blog post, something amazing happened. First off @Broker4Tickets tweeted the following after reading the post:
On August 12th, five days before the first Sens Summer Fan Fest, a Twitter user, Logan Caswell @loggycass offered two pairs of tickets as raffle prizes.
In retrospect, this is where I should have seen something was wrong. He originally offered to meet me and deliver the tickets which to my knowledge were not available to anyone. However, I wasn't 100% sure that the Ottawa Senators didn't send out season tickets early to certain season ticket holders. In the end before we could meet, it was decided it would be easier to just transfer them through e-mail when it was time. I didn't really think anything of this afterwards.
I posted Logan's ticket donation for the Sens Summer Fan Fest on the Red Scarf Union (RSU) Facebook page. On August 15th an RSU member messaged me the following:
Fast forward to Sens Summer Fan Fest, and I get the two winners of Logan's tickets contact information. I e-mail Logan (with the e-mail address he provided me through DMs) along with the two winners so that he can get in contact with them. This is exactly what I did with all the other people who donated tickets. Everything seemed fine.
On September 17th I receive an e-mail from the winner of the Buffalo tickets that was also sent to Logan's e-mail.
On October 28th, I received a free pair of Toronto Marlies tickets due to an earlier purchase of Sens-Leafs tickets I had made. I offered them out on Twitter and quickly received several tweets with interest in them. To be fair I decided to hold a draw. However, Logan DMed me about buying them.
On November 17th I receive an e-mail from the other winner who had won the St. Louis Blues tickets for November 22nd.
Even more concerning is this tweet that appears on his timeline. He did receive the Marlies tickets I had sent him to the second e-mail address he provided me. So he completely lied in his last DM when he told me to "Make sure he as the right e-mail." That second e-mail that the winner tried contacting was working fine.
