    Fucking scalpers. Guess it's no surprise considering that shit started running up to 400 on ebay last year.

    Thanks PF! I imagine there will be quite a few. Is there a better time of day to check, or is it random?

    I can't wait for some tickets to get redumped into the bin

    Will GV attempt to do anything about ebay scalpers now is the real question.

    I swear we should just lynch mob the craigslisters together people. It will unify us.

    Is there anything they can do? Pricing on ebay is dictated by the buyer and tickets have been sold there for years. Great if there is something they could do, although I doubt it.

    Lucky we can all fit as many people as we want on one camp site. Looks like it's going to be a tight squeeze.

    Still sucks for people who actually missed out and don't have friends who bought tickets.

    ^^ bitch at ebay.

    coachella forum members: make local city groups to "purchase" camp tickets from scalpers on craigslist; upon meeting; obtain ticket and valuables from said scalper; tar and feather, then rejoice

    The best we can do is flag the ones on Craigslist since you're not allowed to sell tickets more than it's face value, but then again, that won't stop the ones who are super desperate and have a ton of money to spare.

    I called ticketmaster and was told they will start looking at flagged orders (ie over the limit) next week (Monday).

    Granted that info could be wrong...

    to scalp tickets in California unless you are within x amount of feet of the venue.

    The only way around this is to have non transferable tickets. But Coachella has not done this.

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    well another way around it would be for Coachella to price out scalpers

    Ie charge $300 per camping ticket instead of $75.

    But would any of us really want this?

    the key is get you shit early. Then just in case in turn out you do not need you crap sell it to someone else at "face" value (plenty of buyers will take face value).

    What kind of stupid shit is this? That would just drive scalping value into the near quadruple digits.

    Ticketbastard has the billing address and shipping address as the same thing. One of yours is likely to get canned.

    How about through layaway? Don't know if that makes a difference...at this point I guess I should be happy that I have a couple of passes!
