What method of payment did you use? Most have buyer protection...

Oh shit dude. Probably not a good choice for an online transaction. Did the scammer suggest that?

Yes it was there choice but said they would send tickets then when i got then would give tracking number. Walmart to Walmart said they would need that and id to pick up and they didn't get that info but still picked up! Sucks bad was so excited! Was at fellow burners house so happy making plans and got ripped off! So sad can't believe people do that!

File a police report. Then let BMORG know.

Trilo's most excellent post on not getting ripped off:

viewtopic.php?f=464&t=78735
If you do get scammed, PLEASE FILE A POLICE REPORT! Even if your bank or money transfer service is going to cover the loss, file a report asap! Once you've done that, send an email to fraud@burningman.org with the case # and details. Not filing a police report is basically saying that you're okay with it, and only encourages scammers to take other people for a ride.
Yes, there are predators on eplaya, and we don't know who they are until they rip someone off.
