don't buy a ticket off the street, they are never any good.. if the numbers on top are all the same it's a fake, and if the row number says 88 or 00 i think it's usually a fake too. if you buy a ticket outside of ticketmaster, ask for them seller to show you a reciept
you can tell because you didn't get it off craigslist scalpers.
Ticketmaster clones are running rampant on CL. take a close look at the numbers under the barcode..each ticket should have a unique last string of numbers. if not you made someone hoodrich.
I was at Hard 13 at the shrine last month and there were droves of upset kids walking away who got ripped off with the cloned ticket scam.
On the real, though........If they are trying to sale you a hard ticket, do the following:
Get a paper-clip, bend it out so it's straight. Get a lighter, and heat up the tip of the paper-clip, then put the hot tip of the paper-clip on to the front side of the ticket. If the ticket burns and keeps burning, then it's a fake, but if the burn stops and the mark it leaves is black, then it's real. I did this last year for Coachella, and it worked. Try it on an old ticketmaster hard ticket and you'll see what I'm talking about.
By the way, this method does not apply to Ticketfast print-outs.
LOL! Funny you had to mention that.
Chuck Norris has the best poker face of all time. It helped him win the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite having in his hand a Joker, a 6 of Clubs, a Get Out of Jail Free Monopoly Card, his drivers license, and a Green Uno Card.
Even if your ticket is real it may not allow entry. It may be one that was reported lost and cancelled. If you buy a ticket while the festival is going on it could even be one that had already been used.
I don't think I'm hosting a 2016 collaborative playlist.
why would put your entire weekend in jeopardy by buying a craigslist ticket?
scammers have ticket master printers out there and can produce ticket clones easily... this is nothing new...
if its too good to be true, it likely is.
