My company received a phone call from Mr. David Prandi from Friendly Tickets, asking us to help him resolve a fraud issue with an electronic concert ticket. We are also a ticket broker company registered with the same network as they are.

The fraud complaint he had was that someone he bought a set of tickets from, he believed had been altered electronically, and needed our help to verify this.

Since we are both with the same network we have our entire inventory where he can see it, and contact us.

Basically after a few phone calls, and investigating it turns out, that it was he himself who had altered the tickets and needed to see ours to make sure he had it look right.

I have made a complaint myself to the BBB.

So BEWARE of buying tickets from this company, you may be paying for what you think is a premium ticket, but in actuality it is a crap upper level nose bleed ticket.

Let me know if you have ever had problems with this company or E-Tickets from them.

    I got scammed by this guy too. David Prandi is just a scammer. Sells tickets and leaves you high and dry! NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS GUY!!!

    He took my tickets which I paid for, says they were no longer good, and he sold them to someone else for more than what I paid for them.

    This guy is awful. I think he is a criminal and needs to go back to Prison. If I only knew this BEFORE I bought from him, I would have never bought. With a little search on Google, David Alexander Prandi, you'll find all the crap about this guy and his 'businesses'.

    Report that this guy was Convicted for Sexual Assault, and is now a registered Sex Offender

    Ex-Deputy Gets Year in Jail for Sexual Assault / Former Marin County officer was friend of teen victims' families
    October 22, 1999|By Pamela J. Podger, Chronicle Staff Writer


    A former Marin County deputy sheriff was sentenced to one year in Sonoma County Jail and three years of probation for sexually assaulting two young women in his Petaluma home.

    Sonoma County Superior Court Judge Patricia Gray sharply rebuked the defendant, David Alexander Prandi, 33, for his apparent lack of remorse and for blaming the victims in a presentencing interview. She chided him for taking advantage of his position as a former law enforcement official and family friend of the victims, as well as planning and calculating his actions.


    "Mr. Prandi is in complete denial that he ever did anything inappropriate, and he enrolled his friends and family to write letters on his behalf, " Gray said. "That makes him one of the most dangerous members of this community who don't take responsibility for their actions."

    Prandi, who has no prior criminal record and is currently employed at an Internet startup company, faces a state prison term of four years and eight months if he violates his probation. He also must register as a sexual offender for the rest of his life, is forbidden from having any contact with his victims and must pay restitution and fees.

    Prosecutor James Casey, who described Prandi as a "sexual terrorist, " said the sentence was appropriate. He said Prandi could be released from jail in nine months, but has the state prison term hanging over his head.

    "This is as tough as it gets, " Casey said, noting that as a sexual predator and former correctional officer, Prandi will land at the bottom of the inmate pecking order.

    The felony charges of false imprisonment and sexual battery stem from incidents in May when Prandi lured a 17-year-old girl and, the next day, a 19-year-old San Rafael woman to his apartment. On both occasions, the victims told police they were blindfolded and handcuffed. Prandi pleaded no contest to charges that he kissed and fondled the victims and that he penetrated the 19-year-old with his finger.

    Prandi, dressed in a charcoal gray suit, attempted yesterday to defend his remarks during the October probation interview, saying he had no money to fight a related civil lawsuit filed just days before and wanted to shield himself from any comments that could be used against him.

    "I was extremely guarded in what I had to say, " Prandi said. "I'm sorry for what happened."

    Prandi was handcuffed and led away to jail under the gaze of family and courtroom onlookers, including one of his victims who tightly clutched hands with a friend during the judge's remarks.

    Contra Costa County lawyer Harry Stern, who represented Prandi, the son of former Marin County Sheriff Charles Prandi, said Prandi was remorseful.

    David Prandi has acknowledged "that he has dragged the family name through dirt, " Stern said. "I think it was a fair sentence in light of all that went on. I think he certainly has been humbled by this experience and he hopes the victims have a period of healing."

    I always wonder how lucky I was, because I met David on several occasions. He would always get me tickets when I called to any event. Of course this was back in [protected] however, I maintained a relationship with him (professional). In 07 or 08 he did want me to go on some yacht trip around the bay with he and his wife. He told me his wife liked girls and he wanted a good time. The trip cost a few hundred bucks, and he said he would cover the amount. I didn't go, because I felt like it was too weird. I was never under age. I was mid to late 20's, but David knew I liked to party hard and have fun. I am very glad I didn't go and I feel really bad for anyone that has suffered pain from him. I don't see him as a monster, but when you read this information, you wonder wtf? It makes me scared for young girls that come into contact with people like him, because he truly was nice and polite. You don't see a predator after you with motives. I hope everyone involved is well.
