Regarding Ticket Scalpers & Scammers

Postby trilobyte » Thu Feb 14, 2013 11:24 am

Before posting about ticket scalpers or scammers, or before purchasing tickets in the after-market, please read the following important information.

SCALPERS
While we frown upon the practice of selling above face value, it is important to note that scalping is legal in the state of Nevada (whose laws govern the event). ePlaya may not be used to coordinate attacks or harassment of ticket scalpers. Links to ticket sales or auctions on third party sites are not allowed, even if it's just to express your shock and outrage. We don't want to give those sites any additional page views.

IF YOU HAVE INFORMATION REGARDING A POSSIBLE TICKET SCAM
Please contact your local authorities first and foremost, and fill out a mail fraud report! Since it's a third party transaction, Burning Man has no legal recourse, it's up to you to report it so the bad guys can get caught and prosecuted. Then please send an email with the relevant details to fraud@burningman.com. Note that Participant Services is not able to provide ticket verification services for after-market ticket sales. Please do not send in requests to confirm tickets.

DO NOT POST your own scam warnings on ePlaya or another person's personal data on a public board (especially ePlaya). People in the US are innocent until proven guilty, and while you may have good intentions it could get you into some sticky situations with regards to privacy laws, harassment, and so on. You're good people, we don't want you getting into that kind of trouble.

SCAM WARNINGS
If you purchase tickets through a third party we highly suggest you meet in person for the tickets and not risk buying through the mail. The ePlaya is a good place to post buying or selling tickets. Remember - nobody will have physical tickets to sell before ticket fulfillment in June. Anyone claiming otherwise is a scammer.

Here are scams to look out for that have happened in the past:
  • Seller gives ticket details from another person's tickets and may even produce copy of confirmation email. Doesn't actually have the tickets though, then collects money via mail or Paypal and cuts off contact with buyer. Recourse: possible chargeback through Paypal, no recourse if money order or cash
  • Seller gives their ticket details out, collects money and mails an empty envelope or nothing at all. Recourse: possible chargeback through Paypal, no recourse if money order or cash
  • Seller claims tickets can be printed out at home using a special link they will give out. Collects money and sends bogus email, then cuts off contact. NOTE: BURNING MAN TICKETS CANNOT BE PRINTED AT HOME. Recourse: possible chargeback through Paypal, no recourse if money order or cash

Information regarding known ticket scams will be posted below as replies to this thread, as we receive information from Participant Services.

When using an online payment service (such as PayPal or Amazon Payments), we highly recommend looking carefully at the buyer protection that you get with the method of payment you are sending. For example, personal or gift transactions typically afford no buyer protection and should be avoided unless the seller is someone you know well and are comfortable buying from.

Below is a list of ticket numbers that have been voided. To check a confirmation code easily, use the find function in your web browser and type in the number you're checking on. Tickets listing these numbers are not valid for entry to Burning Man 2013 and will not work when scanned at the front gate of the event. Tickets can be canceled for various reasons, including (but not limited to) being reported as stolen and being sold at a price inflated above face value. Please note that just because a ticket number does not appear on this list does not guarantee its authenticity & validity.
