Tennessee AG Skrmetti: Ticketholders, Vendors of Canceled ‘Walker Stalker’ Events Are Eligible for Refunds

Fans of AMC’s popular television show The Walking Dead who bought a ticket in hopes of attending a “Fan Fest” event in Nashville a few years ago are finally able to receive refunds from the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office, AG Jonathan Skrmetti announced Friday.

Attorney General Skrmetti recently launched a consumer restitution program to provide refunds for canceled “Fan Fest” events organized by Walker Stalkers, LLC, for fans to meet famous actors and artists associated with the popular AMC television program as well as other well-known television shows.

“The opportunity to make things right for fans is the best possible outcome in a case like this,” Skrmetti said in a statement. “I appreciate the hard work of our Consumer Protection Division throughout this legal process.”

In 2013, Walker Stalkers’ CEO, James Frazier, founded the company and organized dozens of “Walker Stalker Con” and “Fan Fest” events in the United States and London. A number of conventions were canceled in 2018, however, and refunds were not issued to ticketholders and vendors.

After the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office sued Walker Stalkers in 2020, James Frazier consented to an Agreed Final Judgment.

As noted by Skrmetti’s office, consumers wishing to request refunds (either for tickets purchased or for fees paid to participate as a vendor) must act quickly, as the program will only accept claims for approximately 120 days (January 30th, 2023). Once the 120-day claims period expires, consumers will not be able to request refunds.

Amber Shaw, who now serves as restitution administrator, is in charge of facilitating claims and refunds.

“We enjoy working with victims to complete the claims process and issue refunds,” Shaw said in a statement. “The claims process can sometimes be intimidating, and our role is to make it as easy as possible.”
