Online marketplace suspends sales of BCS tickets

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - StubHub has suspended sales of tickets
to Monday's BCS title game because of a seller who did not have
enough tickets to fill orders.

On Wednesday night, the secondary ticket marketplace removed all
tickets to the game between No. 1 Auburn and second-ranked Oregon.

On Thursday, the company sent out e-mails to fans who had already
purchased tickets, offering them a full refund and an additional
payment of twice the ticket price.

For example, if a fan paid $1,000 for a ticket, StubHub offered
to refund the $1,000, as well as an additional $2,000 for the
ticket.

StubHub spokeswomen Joellen Ferrer says it appears that the
website had enough takers to satisfy the orders that could not be
filled.

The San Francisco-based company says it will bill the
seller for the extra costs.
