Not a scalper, but I bought my 2009 tickets for just under face value from a guy who couldn't make it. They were legit.

No one has ever been ripped off. Send your money to my address and you'll receive a ticket. Cash only

I have done it many times through many avenues (ebay, stub hub, word of mouth, craiglist) and they have always been legit.
BUT I have always been buying tickets BELOW face or just slightly above face (after the fees are added). So they not been the most in demand tickets (ie the scamers did not come out to play).
Even if you get a "good" deal on a Coachela ticket on stub hub it will still run you over $200 over face (after you add all the fees). So this event is far more in demand than any ticket I have bought through a secondary market.
