More than 1,000 fans duped when Ticketmaster allegedly tricked them into paying double or triple the face value of Bruce Springsteen tickets have been sent claim forms, the Federal Trade Commission announced.

The FTC has mailed claim forms to 1,018 consumers eligible for refunds after being steered from the Ticketmaster website to its ticket resale website TicketsNow while buying Bruce Springsteen tickets last year. Ticketmaster and its affiliates agreed to reimburse the concertgoers to settle FTC charges that they used deceptive bait-and-switch tactics to sell concert tickets.
