    Default WANTED 4 WEEKEND 1 WRISTBANDS and will still buy SAT 4/15 with enough proof

    If someone can't go and can't sell 4 tickets for weekend 1, we arrive Sat am 4/14 in Palm Springs. My two kids are dying to go and we missed the boat on ordering and got scammed trying to find someone who was selling.

    Still willing to try but this time I have to be 100% sure these arereal tickets

    I want to talk by phone, figure out how to maybe leave them at Will Call or do a transfer in person; have to verify on the phone with front gate tickets that you are selling to me and let me register them --or find a way that will assure me I am not being scammed. Will pay 200 dollars per ticket if you can prove they are real and we can find a way to meet up and do the exchange.

    It might be hard to find tickets for $200 each when they are selling for over twice that on eBay, but good luck.

    How did you get scammed?

    Bonchic, check Craigslist and deal in person only to prevent getting scammed. However, you'll need to buy ahead of time, like now, since you won't be able to get within a mile of the festival without passes and no one in their right mind is going to hold onto $350+/each passes until then hoping someone shows up to buy, other than scalpers. Furthermore, you will need to be realistic about what you're going to pay. I have seen some going for around face value but you need to be quick to jump on those and understand that $200 is not enough. As long as you get the authentic wristbands (pictures are available widely online) you will be okay since they will be difficult to fake.

    Thank you. Appreciated. For "just steve"'s benefit, the aforementioned children are 16 years old and their grandmother died so I was trying to do something so Palm Springs doesn't have horrid memories only. One suggestion might be to mind your own business until you have kids of your own.

    I got the ticket order # and the person sent an email from Frontgate saying the tickets were being mailed to me. The person whom I e-mailed apparently has 3 aliases and was using a stolen credit card. The order # was real. They were not able to forward tickets to me because they didn't really order them. The address to which they were supposed to go turned otu to be fake--it just gets worse and worse. I wanted it too badly and trusted. Stupid move on my part. I thought I'd covered bases. Now I know what to do. Thank your for your advice-appreciated.
