well, here is the Burning Man Ticket Page FAQ:

Avoiding Fraud & Buying Third Party Tickets:

How can I tell if a ticket is real?
Your best assurance is by buying it from someone you know and trust. Our tickets have numerous physical security features, unique foils, embossings, and variable data. Remember, just because a ticket is real, doesn't mean it is still valid.

How can I know that the ticket I'm buying is valid?
The only real way to know a ticket is real and valid is to buy it from someone you know and trust. Before you buy a ticket from a third party, check the voided ticket list to make sure it is not listed as a ticket number that has been canceled or voided.

If I buy a ticket on eBay, Stub Hub or a re-seller site is it still valid?
We have no problem with people selling their unneeded tickets for face value (plus service fees) and this is possible to do using eBay's "Buy it now" feature. If a ticket has been auctioned and/or sold for high above its face value, we may have canceled and voided that ticket. To be safe, you should never pay above face value for a ticket.

How can I buy a third party ticket safely?
The safest way to buy a third party ticket is by buying it from STEP or directly from someone you know. Second to that, your safest bet is buying a ticket from someone in your immediate community of Burners
