Buying from scalpers on craigslist?
How do they acquire them?
How do I know if they are legit? Is there a risk that they aren't?

I have never purchased tickets from Craigslist its not worth the risk in my opinion. They could have bought seasons tickets which they get the tickets cheaper than face value. Do they have more than one game for sale? How much cheaper are they?

Any ticket you buy from a scalper could be fake. You take the same chance buying on Kijiji and on the street. I always get their phone number and meet them in person.jordanr1987 wrote: ↑Feb 18th, 2011 2:09 pmi find kijiji more legit than craigslist
the only way to verify is to go down to the arena and ask if its a real ticket (they should be able ot scan barcode or verify)
the only risk is paying x amount of dollars, spending money getting to the game and not having the ticket reigster and you don't get let in
and the guys at the gate won't feel sorry for you because you got ripped off

Exactly. Buyer beware, but don't immediately count out the CL and KIJIJI sellers.

you meet the person at THEIR HOUSE....
not in a mall, not anywhere else...
if they say no, no deal, move on...
but u have to ask yourself, why are they saying no?

Are you not listed in the phone book?
you feel your untraceable unless you GIVE your address to someone?
If you're selling something and the person wants to pick it up at your house, you'll say no because you don't want them to know where you live?

If e.g. I'm selling a computer, I don't want the buyer to be able to come camp out at my door if he wants to return it or he wants help with some feature or needs to reinstall the operating system etc. If I sell on kijiji or craigslist, like most people, it's final sale... what you see is what you get. Give me the money, take the thing, and that's that. And yes, I will always say meet in a public place, which I believe works best with kijiji because it's safer, both for the buyer and the seller.
