Scam email for YSO tickets

A little past midnight, a number of students received the following prank email informing them all prior purchases of YSO tickets were invalid and in-person sales would be held outside of Commons tomorrow. Cash only, the email specified.

Yale Symphony Orchestra members have since confirmed this email to be a prank. It seems students need not camp in Commons’ cold rotunda overnight in hopes of acquiring tickets. Various students have pointed to the Pundits as a possible source although given the recent string of pranks on campus the group has either been particularly active as of late or they are receiving some undeserved credit.

Students who still have not acquired a ticket to the Halloween concert may be out of luck. One senior told Cross Campus she would “only be trading this ticket for a post-grad job opportunity.”
