Tips To Find Legitimate Individual Re-Sellers
While official ticketing websites can be a reliable source for tickets, tickets can also be purchased from individuals through Facebook groups, Twitter, and individual seller sites like Craigslist. However, with unaffiliated online purchases, you should always check your source out. Below are some tips to combat ticket fraud.
Be Aware of Unrealistic Prices: Although cheap tickets might be an attractive option, be skeptical of tickets sold below market value. Oftentimes, the excitement to see your favorite artist might cloud your judgment, so avoid falling victim to scams by checking ticket prices, being cautious, and doing your research.
Check The Account Owner: Sometimes people make fake accounts to conduct business and profit off the thirst for tickets. Be wary of these folks by checking out the seller. On Twitter, how recent was the account made? How many followers do they have? Do they have a sales history? A quick search can tell! Be sure to check out replies and comments as well as Tweets or Facebook posts made about sellers. Some individuals watermark their photos, so you can check if the watermark matches their name as well!
Verify Name-On-Ticket Policies: Before you purchase a ticket make sure to verify the name-on-ticket policy for the event. If you end up buying from a reseller, they should reissue the ticket in your name to avoid potential issues at the venue.
