Box up something he has and give it to him for his birthday. If he's old enough to know how to use your card with all the correct info, he's old enough to know that's wrong.

^^^. "...I planned to buy them but COULDN'T due to the fact it was too expensive..." so no. They weren't going to buy them.

To all the brain dead people who are saying "it's the thought that counts" he stole the credit card, used the card without permission , he deserves to be punished. Severely . Theft is theft

OP open a dispute with the credit card company as unauthorized use, and then cancel the card and have them reissue you one

Well that's a dilemma now isn't it.. You could return them and hopefully your favorite band'll be back in town some other time..

Most concerts don't take tickets back. At least, I've never seen one that does. You could sell them to other people though!

Wait #5 you are going about this all wrong he knew she wanted to go to the concert but he probably didnt know she didnt have enough money so he use her credit card thinking that maybe money is endless on it and bought it.

Unappreciative? Personally, I'd be livid. He could have put OP in a very bad situation for bill-paying. OP, first off, try to get a refund. If that doesn't work, call your bank and report your card stolen. I'm sorry he got your hopes up like that, it's terrible! :(

He either has a strange definition of what a gift is or he has no concept of how a credit card works.

I can see the merit of that comment. I mean, most teenagers here don't understand the concept of money. They think everything on the card are free and infinite amount of money comes out of the ATM!

27- That's not true... at all. As a matter of fact, a lot of teenage friends including myself have jobs, and we fully understand "the value of a dollar". Way to summarize an entire generation though. Just because OP son pulled a tricky move, doesn't mean every teenager is naïve to money value.

Especially in today's economy. It's more important than ever that we know what to spend our money on and how.. A lot of teenagers aren't as stupid as adults think But thanks for the faith :)

#27, I'm 17, have a job, and save 90% of what I earn every two weeks. I certainly know the value of a dollar, and most of my friends do as well. Don't base your generalizations off the idiot stereotype teenagers.

Doesnt the thought counts? Be sure he actually pays for the ticket for you! If he doesn't then it wasn't a gift then!
