  • I liked her personality

  • Lol Brigid had an interesting first year in college. Faked a plane ticket and participated in a scam! Sounds fun.


  • Huh that was terrible

  • Didn’t she also cheat on an exam or sum?

  • so... what was the scam? I mean, what was the scam about? Were the people banned from entering/buying the tickets in the first place? gotta give some more information. It doesn't even sound like a scam.

  • r/thathappened

  • She is the same girl that SCAMMED a teacher with an airplane ticket.

  • Did this happen during the scam?

  • 😂🤣 👁 👁 👃🏻 👅

  • Was I the only one who was just like go to the intersection

  • Remind me never to watch Buzzfeed again.

  • the first video I get is a scam how ironic

  • What trash

  • Get to self a lyfeeee

  • Ye

  • This video could have been valuable had it educated the audience about the scamming scheme. Also, since when did $620 become a ton of money?

  • You, you are the reason I am *petrified* of getting close to friends... I know I'll get a phone call saying "they were found [in a really bad situation]"... I mean, I'm petrified pet cat/dog will get hit by car/stolen because they are a silly cat/dog... but people? People? I am petrified every time I talk to them... that they will tell me about a "plan" they have where everything goes catastrophically deadly.

  • No someone prob stole your wallet

  • isn’t she the one who cheated on a test


  • 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • This is complete BS copied from some reddit copypasta fiction probably. Like everything on Buzzfeed.

  • Good story

  • Crazy lol thanks for wasting 9 minutes of my life!

  • Is that Emma chamberlain

  • Save yourself 9 minutes. Ticket scalpers paid college kids to enter a ticket lottery. She won and bought the tickets on behalf of the scalpers who were likely banned from buying tickets.

  • What if they bomb the stadium

  • Shes cute she could earn that every weekend. Hit them poles.

  • Should have ran off with the 7k lol

  • Sounds like a lottery for rights to buy pre-sale tix. Enter th3 lottery, under a hundred id’s. Hope for a few chances to buy tix before going on sale to the public

  • *Let's do this!* 👍👍

  • Thanks to idiots like you I can’t afford $200 Jerry Seinfeld tickets. He’s probably never going to tour again, he’s like 80 years old.

  • What a FAKE Story!! Made up just for hits.. Nobody is letting you walk away with 7K in Cash... Don't care if they know your address etc. This isn't how tickets are divied up..... We all got scammed for watching this video!!

  • Not a scam. Just working for some scalpers.

  • Excellent story! But would you do it again ? ???????

  • *”let’s do this”* stfu....

  • Brigid first u pulled a plane ticket trick and now this?😂

  • congratulations you just influenced a bunch of collage kids to talk to strangers get in vans and take sketchy money and Possibly get KIDNAPPED..for the sake of possible profit and "adventure"

  • congratulations you just influenced a bunch of collage kids to talk to strangers get in vans and take sketchy money and possibly get KIDNAPPED...for the sake of possible profit and "adventure"

  • Ur story is boring and a big fat lie

  • cool story bro.... Jk, fingers crossed you didn't take creative writing at collage...

  • What bs

  • Let’s do this!

  • He, he, yes that was a great story. Enjoyed it very much. What would life be without a little adventure

  • HEYYYYYYY! Ur back! And also, congrats! Ur foundation actually matches ur skin color this time

  • Make more with Brigid she is like the only one who tells an interesting story :/

  • 6:12 i thought she would keep saying "except for me" lol

  • i would have ran with the 7000 dollars

  • what’s her full name ???

  • I like her

  • werid flex but ok

  • "Forgets where i left my wallet" *STORY TIME, I GOT ROBBED*

  • Plot twist: people of the stadium find this film, verify their camera footage and report her to the police for paying with fake cash. good job (y)

  • Could you have just taken the 7k and left them

  • There’s something off with her voice

  • I hate people I am sub bot dum fgts

  • *LETS DO THIS!!*

  • I love this series on buzzfeed! I’ve been binge watching it for hours😂

  • LETS DO THIS!!!!!! lol


  • Brigid is this really a scam

  • Heyyyy! It's the girl that cheated on her exam!

  • She looks like she's a great personality. Hope she's not a feminist type!

  • I wonder what the “van people” will think when they see your video

  • You’re a good narrator 😂😂😂😂

  • make money online by watching payed ads illimited income @t

  • I mean $20 is $20

  • I'm part of a scam for watching this video.

  • Are these real stories

  • this story is totally impossible to create a this type of story. Buzzfeed has of course never made up a story

  • My name is Brigitte

  • This story is more aids than my aids

  • I hope these people are in jail now

  • you could have told this story in about 1/10 of the time

  • I would've kept the 7gs for sure

  • SuFfEr mE

  • "What's the worst that can happen? I don't get $20?"

  • You scammed me for watching this!

  • Event to show an Id Hmmmm this is not weird at all.

  • She’s a great story teller

  • Honestly she should be thankful that was the worst she ended up with. A lot of scams outright require you to realize that they are dishonest in order to work, and that could have been part of something much worse than just ticket scalping.

  • She was accidentally a ticket scalper..

  • I don’t think it was a bad story, it’s talking about the experience, why do people hate it so much?

  • This girl is so me. I think I'd do this for money if I was her.

  • My brother got A on his maths.. Except for me. My brother got to watch the IT movie.. Except for me. My dad got to travel to Hong Kong.. Except for me.

  • Isnt she is the fake airplane ticket to avoid an exam lady?

  • she looks like miley cyrus

  • Loved this video 🥳🤩

  • White van white van 😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳

  • Just 20 dollars just 20 dollars

  • That's a really great story ! But I still don't understand what they'll do with these tickets and why do no one got chosen except for you ?? Maybe you are the exact profile they were searching for? IDK nan meolla ~ 😂

  • I'd only do it if it was 1,000,000$.

  • *iT gEtS wEiRdEr*


  • lEtS dO tHiS

  • well that's ten minutes of my life i'll need get back. thanks buzzfeed. i'll read the comments next time.

  • They needed the ID's because there must have been a lottery or contest to determine who was allowed to purchase those "special" tickets, they took the ID to enter everyone. They were probably for box seats or significant games, she probably could have made way more if she kept the tickets and scalped them herself.

  • Girl what was wrong with your freshmen year of college

  • Hello random person reading this :)
