    If you bought them off craigslist, then they are definitely counterfeit. That's how you'll know.

    If they work at the door.

    Seriously though, ask for all of their documentation when they complete the sale and give it to you. Get their receipt, email address, phone number, everything - showing that originally this was a legit sale of a wristband to them, and now they are giving it to you.

    Remember: "Let the buyer beware"

    Honestly there are a few ways

    1- look on the board later when they start to arrive. You will see exactly what they look like so if u do a face to face deal.

    2- stubhub deals are all backed up - no problems

    3- eBay - check user feedback.
    Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this…and totally redeem yourself!

    If you buy from a 3rd party, there is no way to tell its real until you try it at the scanners

    Honestly, if at this point you're still asking questions like this, I think you should just stay home.

    well considering i have been going to coachella since 2006 im pretty sure i will make it out there,its alot different this year with the wristbands and not just tickets,my friend has a wrist band but he is in NYC if i had a picture that would help. I already know all about coachella and craigslist ticket frauds,on craigs i found this older lady said she got four from a promoter but she has no proof of purchase which makes it that much worse,i know thats a true story cause my friend got ones from a promoter but she could be lying.
