This whole situation sucks! I used to have an Amex Gold card so I knew the password but figured it wouldn't be able to be done without an Amex charge account. So much for being honest!
I agree with you my friend. I was under the impression that an Amex card would need to be used in order to even purchase a package, otherwise I would have bought one myself. We can't blame the Scorpions themselves but at least someone (management or ILAA) should have made it clear. No worries though, mate, if it's anything like here in the UK, the scalpers already have premium seats at double or triple the price.
