“They were giving me the run around all the time. They don’t want to talk to you when you ask for a refund,” she said.
When CBS13 contacted Stub Hub, they refunded Howard’s money, saying their policy is to give a 120% credit for use within a year, but they will give refunds to high-risk customers, including seniors like Howard, who may not feel safe attending events.MORE NEWS: Sheriff: Stockton Arson Suspect Allegedly Swung Improvised Weapon At Deputy During Chase
