    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.

    The "chip" on the bracelet is the only thing that needs to be authentic.

    If you have a "real" fabric bracelet with a fake chip you are not getting in.

    If you have a photocopy of the bracelent and a real chip you're all but certain to get in all 3 days.

    How do festival veterans that failed initial onsales thru no fault of their own, prove the authenticity of a wristband on the secondary market? Especially those travelling in who aren't sure stubhub can send it to them in time? Stubhub/Ebay only claim the return on your money.

    Parking lot purchases may be very affordable but can also be a hotbed for scammers - especially if non-wristband wearers can't go within a mile of the gate.

    It makes me thing I've made a mistake in my thinking somewhere, but it seems to me that Bumblebee has a valid point. The wristbands are advanced, yes, but this only prevents Goldenvoice from getting scammed. Unless you have an RFID reader and know which codes indicate valid passes, the 'advanced wristbands' do nothing to protect the consumer from buying a fraudulent ticket on the secondary market.

    you could register them to see if they were good couldn't you? they should put a scanner so you can validate with cell phones.

    At a minimum, GV should hold the original buyer accountable. If a wristband is disabled and resold, the original account holder should be banned from purchasing from GV again.

    Once for a Lakers game I re-printed my ticket because I misplaced it, found the other and accidently scanned the wrong one. I pretty much had to write a long essay to the Season Ticket office on what happened and how I won’t do it again or my privileges would be revoked. Just that one instance, and I had a 30 day probationary period where I couldn't sell, reprint, or forward tickets from my account.

    Dear Paul Tollet.

    This thread is my confirmation as to why I completely trust you and your staff to make my concert decisions.

    Carry on and thank you.

    Sincerely, and with an oxford comma,

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I am going to do you a great favor right now and show you where you have gone wrong.

    1. A seller is not going to allow a buyer to register them until he has received payment. A buyer who wants to validate by registration will not want to give money first. The only way this works is via an in-person transaction in the presence of a laptop and an wifi connection. This significantly reduces the potential market.

    2. I don't think the registration number is physically connected to the RFID chip, is it? (I don't remember exactly). I thought it was printed on the wristband, not the actual chip itself? If so you could still have a valid code with an invalid/dummy chip inside. Or, alternatively, doesn't seem like it would be hard to counterfeit a duplicate registration number.

    3. What they should do and what they actually do are two separate things. And it's what they actually do that matters.

    I think you can register the wristband on your smart phone too. At least I logged into that Coachella website on my phone a couple times.

    I helped a friend buy off a third party this past year. We found someone BEFORE the passes were being sent out. Used PayPal to give her money. In exchange, she emailed Frontgate with her order asking to have a name change. We also asked for access to her Frontgate account, in which we changed ALL her information to my friend's to ensure that the wristbands would be mailed to him and not the original purchaser.

    Right, but, still, seems like an enterprising young criminal could counterfeit something that looked like a chip and had an ID code on it that was a copy from a known valid number?

    100% my stance. These fucking tards can't do it better than their "leader". What an insult to even suggest otherwise. After all these years of making this place you all worship and your going to try to outsmart the creator of the festival or suggest they are doing it wrong. lol

    Does this involve having the ticket buyer(s) access to the 3rd party's CC numbers or other information that should remain private?

    Nope. The seller deleted her CC info from her acct before giving him access.
    Frontgate only shows the last 4 digits, anyways.

    Seems to be a lot of confusion and stupidity. Maybe your own stupid opinions have become inane????
    If you fucks want to act as a rabid pack, you will all be grouped into one. Your leaders and self appointed message board deputies are dragging you down.

    Separate yourself from the pack and anyone of you would be eaten alive. Strength in numbers. Power in prejudice.
