There seems to be no end to the bad news related to the coronavirus outbreak. Numerous movies and television series have been delayed owing to the viral flare-up. It has now impacted movie-related events too.
The latest edition of the Comic-Con hosted by ACE media group has been postponed due to the quarantine in place. The event was headlined by the likes of marvel superstars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddlestone.
The Allegations pinned against Each Other:
Although the show was sold out, it had to be cancelled unfortunately due to the coronavirus outbreak. The event was a joint venture between ACE Media and GrowTix.
GrowTix has been accused of stealing millions in customer refunds by ACE. In a statement, GrowTix were given an additional $680,000 to deal with the returns by ACE, only to be advised that the refund plan did not work. Following these speculations, ACE fired a lawsuit against GrowTix for breach of contract and fraud.
As part of the agreement between ACE and GrowTix, in the event of a cancellation within 30 days, the customers would receive a full refund. ACE announced through their social media that the customers would get full refunds for their tickets to the Comic-Con.
Flouting Actions and Contradictions:
ACE further stated that it received a letter from a high ranking executive from GrowTix’s parent company. ACE claims that Patron tried to attach and withdraw a sum of $2.3 million from ACE’s accounts as fees for GrowTix’s services.
The banks and credit card companies have started issuing refunds to customers while GrowTix are still hogging funds. This move is a bad look for ACE and will cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars. ACE are looking to bolster against GrowTix for their claims, and the lawsuit is their top priority after customer relations.
