Ticket SCAMS - The Captain's LOG 2018

Post by Capt. RON » Thu Aug 02, 2018 10:37 pm

The "Captain's LOG is a series of articles written in a style to appeal to the short attention span of today's "millennials" Think of it as a “cliffs notes” version of all the materials on the BMOG webpages and the many years of collective wisdom found in “eplaya”
I am a better burner because of the information I garnered from the likes of FIGJAM, trilobyte,,oneeyeddick, some seeing eye, Ratty, AntiM, ygmir, Elliot, Savannah, Simon of the Playa, Captain Goddammit, BBadger, Token, and many more.
Thank you all…..

Thanks for posting the information helped me from getting scammed by 3 different sellers. When one is desperate, one is tempted. No tickets for me this year.. :roll:

I'm sorry to hear of your experience, bdman... please file a police report on each of these cases! After you have done so, forward a copy of the case # as well as the particulars to fraud@burning man.org.

As always, all users should read the read me post at the top of our ticket boards, and then read both the Regarding Scammers & Scalpers post, and my last minute advice.

Why do the buyer and seller need a Burner Profile for e-ticket transfers?

Can it be done just thru TicketFly and PayPal?
