Jersey City, NJ asked in Civil Litigation and Small Claims for New Jersey

Q: when you buy someone a ticket to visit you but instead they cancel and keep the credits? is this coersion/robbery??

I bought this IG Girl from Miami a plane ticket for $350. We agreed that she would come to see me on a particular day, so I booked her flight using her info, and once I did, she blocked me and has been nonresponsive ever since. i have all the corresponding texts/receipts to prove it. If I were to pursue this legally, what would this be called? Coercion and robbery?

A: You have been Scammed! Be glad your loss was small. Never send any money or buy plane tickets for anyone. Your losses could have been much worse. The authorities have much bigger Scammers to go after. What you have described happens just a few hundred times per day all over the country. Learn from this and don't make the same mistake a second time.
