How to know if someone has tickets in will call?

Someone one Craiglsist says they have tickets at will call... is there a way to transfer them to my name?

How can this person prove they have tickets? Can I ask the org if they really have tix?

Yes. Both of you would need Ticketfly accounts, and to meet in person. The transfer (instructions linked) happens very quickly and cannot be undone. If the transfer does not happen quickly, while you're together, it's probably not legit. Send the link to your seller so they know how it works, and what the expectations are.

Meeting in a bank is a nice idea--security guards, video, and they can verify your cash is real. The one time I ever sold a ticket, I met the buyer in a bank and was so relieved for that measure of security. It's nice for the buyer, too.

How to I transfer my tickets/vehicle pass into someone else's name using Ticketfly?

Please also read FRAUD PREVENTION & THIRD PARTY BUYER INFO here. There are links to voided tickets and whatnot.

Good luck!
