Re: Tickets AVAILABLE

"I don't get why anyone would purchase tickets from scalpers" And is there another source today besides scalpers? Assume someone has ve already spent thousands on air fair and RV rental and such, and they've been watching the bottom price on Stubhub creeping up over the last 24 hours, expect virtual...

Re: Question about scalpers tickets being cancelled?

I hear what you're saying AntiM, but I sure wouldn't want to be defending the Borg unless the terms and conditions of sale specifically said that any tickets found to have been sold above cost can be revoked. And unless the Borg goes as aggressively after the guy selling his one extra ticket on Stub...

Re: A new concern about scalpers that should be shared

It would really, really suck to find out you had bought a counterfeit ticket at the gate, but that is something that can be checked in advance. StubHub guarantees you will get a valid ticket or a refund. Scalping is really bad, but I don't think the risk is quite as great as you say.

Re: BRC Fails to even search for duplicate names??

Don't get me wrong. This whole system is bullshit, and I hate scalpers. Still, what in the terms and conditions gives the Borg the right to rescind a sale because the tickets are going to be resold over face? I know they have the right to remove you as a buyer if you got caught in advance, but this ...

Too Late: Do not buy tickets over face value thread

If you watch StubHub, you will see the scalping is already in full swing. Ignore the expensive tickets and watch the bottom end. The quantity of $625 tickets was bouncing up and down all day, and the cheapest available now is $635. So put yourself in the shoes of someone overseas. He's bought some e...

Re: Question about scalpers tickets being cancelled?

I believe auctions can be cancelled for selling something you don't have, and I'm pretty sure eBay reserves the right to cancel any auction for any reason. It helps that you're not paying them for the listing up front. On the flip side, I've not seen anything in terms and conditions that gives the B...

Re: This is how it SHOULD have been done.

Not a bad plan, but it could be better: a) I've gone to conferences, but I've never had to pay 6 months in advance. The analogy is imperfect. b) Let Tix be transferable, but only through the BORG. Photo ID must be faxed in name of original buyer. Perhaps a $20 fee applies to cover the labor. c) Let ...
