Just FYI - On a few message boards on Rivals there has been a scam artist at work "selling tickets". The person asks you to pay for the tickets via Western Union (using their password payment system) but doesn't deliver.

As always, be extremely careful when buying/selling tickets to somebody you don't know. Again, we don't endorse any users or transactions that may take place here. Do so at your own risk.

Thanks for inquiring about the tickets, they
are still available for $175 a pair if your interested.
Where are you located? I'm actually in
southern california for the semseter (which is why
were selling these this year).
Anyhow the tickets are in hand, so
let me know if you definitely want these and I can get
these shipped out right away.
I do have a ticket broker ready to
purchase these, but id much rather get these to a real
fan if possible. I am going out of town on Wednesday
(going to Europe for three weeks)
so i would need to ship these out asap.

If we can complete this today, i can get these shipped
via overnight delivery for Tuesday arrival.
Or if you have any contacts in the socal area i could
arrange to meet them for the exchange..
As far as the exchange goes if i need to ship these,
id like to work something out that is both quick and
safe for the both of us. I don't nessesarly need to
receive the funds before i ship these, so if you want
to wait to receive the tickets before you release the
payment id be willing to work something out, as long
as i have some sort of recourse or could at least
verify the funds first.
If you want to do this you can send the funds using
Western Union using their test question feature to put
a password on the transfer that would need to be
answered correctly in order to collect the funds. This
way I can still
verify the funds and mail the tickets..You could then
hold off on providing me with the answer to the test
until after you receive the tickets.

This way you're assured the tickets before
you release the funds and I am able to verify the
funds before I ship the tickets.
So let me know if you have any one out here we can
work this exchange in person through, or if we need to
ship these out to you. I do have a few others
interested so let me know asap if you definitely want
Look forward to hering from you,

or this email address....i have recieved this same story from 5 diffrent names and all claiming around the same story about going to england and stuff. Its crazy, sometimes she or he uses africa.... etc..but you get the point...PLEASE DONT FALL FOR THIS PERSON!

This person has been doing this scam for at least 2 years now. And he/she is all over the place. I was in touch with a guy by phone who tried to rip me off. What a piece of crap.

Can you buy and sell tickets through the Boosters?

Posted on 7/19 8:32 PM | IP: Logged

I can't believe people are so gullible...I work in Law Enforcement and this is just crazy.rolleyes

This is exactly why I don't buy tickets from online users I do not know. If I need to sell tickets I just sell them to my family members.

and if you don't have family then what?

I have sold tix on here for years as things occur in life, or my parents aren't going to a game here or there. Due diligence and yes, post count matters. Just be careful, and like the old adage says, if it sounds to good to be true, it likely is.

Posted on 8/17 10:21 AM | IP: Logged

When is the Booster Ticket Marketplace going to be available?

Posted on 8/14 10:52 AM | IP: Logged

Fell for it. $135 for the tix. Said his dad was a former professor, but he kept the tickets because they were so good and sells them asa he can.

39NoleDawg: can you shoot me an e-mail at: dallashoward@bellsouth.net

Posted on 10/1 10:20 PM | IP: Logged

I use the E-Bay system. I'm not buying tickets from someone on Warchant who does not have at least 300 - 400 posts. I figure any Nole fan with decent seats offering through tickets and trades should have a decent post count here.

I might miss out on some sweet seats, but I've not been swindled yet either (knock on wood).

I don't post a lot but I have been around a long time. I would never rip anyone off.

I have been on this site for years, and I never post because I just don't type very well. My wife is typing this for me now, haha. Call me old school. I have sold our season tickets successfully several times to people on Warchant, however, I have never bought any myself. That being said, we could have been ripped off if the buyer had not sent the funds at the same time we were sending the tickets. You've just got to trust people, and it's a shame that low-life scum make it difficult to do that.

Or just a gold member for a while I'd imagine. Someone who has been here for a while at least.

Any season ticket holder should be able to send you a picture of the full sheet of tickets with their name and address printed at the bottom.
