Don't Get Scammed with Buying Amusement Tickets

Amusement park tickets are always increasing. If we could save any money, we would love to right? But please be careful. Many tickets that sound too good to be true can be fishy or even fake. Do not fall for the scam.

I have never purchased tickets from anyone, but I have sold tickets in the past. One buyer took a photo of our license plate. We had no problem with that because our tickets were authentic and we insured them however after all we are strangers. Plus, any stranger can snap a photo of anyone's license if they wanted. About 30 minutes after selling the tickets, the buyer got in and I received a text, saying all was well and thanking me.

I also have known a friend who was scammed by fake tickets and had no proof since the seller used a prepaid phone that was not traceable.

If you are purchasing tickets from others like on Craigslist, be careful. For your safety, snap a photo of the person's license plate or of their face. If they are afraid of you snapping a photo for proof then something may be up and I would not risk that.
