If you've ever purchased tickets through Ticketmaster, then you probably understand it can be a frustrating experience, especially with those extra fees. Well, as it turns out, some of those fees were misleading. According to a lawsuit, those so-called "convenience" and "facility" fees were actually just ways for Ticketmaster to make a profit. In 2003, ticket buyers began to complain, and now ten years later, the class action lawsuit between Live Nation (which acquired Ticketmaster in 2010) and 50 million ticket buyers has been settled with Live Nation on the hook for almost $400 million. But before you start making plans for what to do with your piece of the pie, beware that the "payment" to wronged ticket buyers will actually only be a limited number of discount codes for $2.50 off your next Ticketmaster purchase.
