    Default HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOUR TICKET IS REAL?

    I had friends buy tickets off craigslist and at the venue and found out at the door they had fake ones. Is there anyway to tell if they're real or fake? Thanks!

    the only way to know if they are real and good is when the barcode is scanned. so buyer beware when buying from a 3rd party.

    don't buy a ticket off the street, they are never any good.. if the numbers on top are all the same it's a fake, and if the row number says 88 or 00 i think it's usually a fake too. if you buy a ticket outside of ticketmaster, ask for them seller to show you a reciept

    you can tell because you didn't get it off craigslist scalpers.
    Ticketmaster clones are running rampant on CL. take a close look at the numbers under the barcode..each ticket should have a unique last string of numbers. if not you made someone hoodrich.
    I was at Hard 13 at the shrine last month and there were droves of upset kids walking away who got ripped off with the cloned ticket scam.

    ahahhahah so owned
    but si amigo you're in luck. there is a way to find out!

    if you put it between your butt cheeks and fart on it the ink on the tickets will create a chemical reaction with your fart and if the ink turns green then it is fake, if not then you're good to go.


    i did and it works! my tickets are real!

    On the real, though........If they are trying to sale you a hard ticket, do the following:
    Get a paper-clip, bend it out so it's straight. Get a lighter, and heat up the tip of the paper-clip, then put the hot tip of the paper-clip on to the front side of the ticket. If the ticket burns and keeps burning, then it's a fake, but if the burn stops and the mark it leaves is black, then it's real. I did this last year for Coachella, and it worked. Try it on an old ticketmaster hard ticket and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    By the way, this method does not apply to Ticketfast print-outs.

    LOL! Funny you had to mention that.

    If you buy it from Delta, it's probably fake.

    Even if your ticket is real it may not allow entry. It may be one that was reported lost and cancelled. If you buy a ticket while the festival is going on it could even be one that had already been used.

    I think one google search might have given you better answers than all these PLURtastic responses.

    if you buy one from a scalper outside the gate, ask the guy to walk to the gate with you and if it doesn't scan, chase the fucker

    There has to be someone out there who bought a ticket for Saturday from a scalper only to realize they had bought a Friday ticket.

    why would put your entire weekend in jeopardy by buying a craigslist ticket?
    scammers have ticket master printers out there and can produce ticket clones easily... this is nothing new...
    if its too good to be true, it likely is.

    If you tear it in half, a red color will appear in the tear. If it is not red, the ticket is not real.
