Just a friendly reminder.

I don't know specific advice to tell you how to make sure someone is honest, but just because a person posts tickets here on the board, doesn't automatically make them trust worthy. I recently had a great experience transacting with someone from this board so I am not saying anything because of a negative experience with people here.

It's just that I've bought many tickets over the past five years and I don't generally send money to people I did not know, so I tend to favor deals in person. I've used Pay Pal in advance of getting the tickets if I talked with the person and really have a sense that they are legit. Other than that, if I didn't know them as a long term visible member of the internet list, pretty much they had to send me the tickets in advance of my sending the money. I also use my work address for people to send me money/tickets so that the person has a confirmed address they can look up if need be. At some point both as a buyer and seller, you have to have some legit information, not just one of those pay as you go cell phone numbers or internet email accounts that anyone can get. There's no exact formula, but you know if you press a person for some information and they don't give it, well don't be afraid of hurting their feelings.

I think Craigslist probably has some good advice about the situation so you might want to go there and read what they have to say in their tickets section.

Anyway, be careful, especially for multiple tickets and many night deals. Also, remember that there are always people selling legitimate tickets out front the night of the show and that the band releases any tickets they have left on the day of the event.

So good luck to you guys still trying to get your tickets bought or sold.

Angela

So you put out a negative vibe all the while your transactions here have been positive? Thanks a lot. We trust in each other here, thats the point of this board, isn't it?

Sorry you miss the point and now that it worked for you you try to dampen others spirits of trust, brother/sisterhood and togetherness. Why not stick to your other avenues of transactions if thats your attitude towards everyone? On this thread there has not been a sad story to be told yet you need to interject negativity. If there were issues, you'd know about on this thread.

Bottom line everyone, there is seldom heard a disparaging word around here. Trust is the crucial element here. Don't let one unbalanced soul fracture your trust and good times here.

Thanks Angela for your wise words. I'm sorry others seem to think your good advice ruins the vibe, but nothing would sour one on trusting like being ripped off. As a seller of extras, I don't mind if someone wants to set up a transfer through an intermediary in my city. "Trust, but verify". Henry Kissinger.

Hey Woody....why don't you back off a little, Bud...All Angela is doing is giving a little "friendly reminder" to us people out here that may be trying to buy/sell a ticket or two for the first time. The only "negative" vibe I feel came from your post. Our sister is just looking out for us!

I agree with silverdollar.

There was a person not too long ago on here that was not honest. Someone posted about it and basically Angela is trying to save some grief as people are now looking to buy and sell. Nuff said!

HawaiiPeachHead, I am working to help you out with your extras. Will keep you posted.

like sister pammy has suggested in the past....find a go-between, make sure that someone here knows them.

i am not speaking for Pam but i belive if you check her thread (i'll bump it up) she agreed to act as an in between.


oh, and if you have extras, just bring them to the parties. someone will most likely need them.

LOL. Very funny WR. You crack me up as usual.

Thanks for watching my back the rest of you guys, and seeing the words and the intent of my message in a more balanced and accurate light. And thanks for speaking up about it.

Angela

PS - There are many people who have legitimate tickets on this board. Good luck to you guys still seeking and selling tickets. Peace out.

i was gonna jump on Woody for grieving you, but then noticed he said something similiar, but less rude, in pams thread too. i guess he thinks implying that someone might get ripped off harsh's his mellow....

but there are valid reasons to be wary. someone here got ripped off last year. we are a great bunch, but lets still be a little careful.

THANK YOU ANGELA.

you know, I just have issue w someone that gets all her tickets taken care of on this board and then AFTERwards says to everyone else to be careful. Thats like taking your ball and going home so noone else can play. I had no problem w Pam's warning: it was well in advance and it was reasonable. This warning came after she (Ang) benefited from using this forum and then recommended other avenues than this board. Not b/c someone was ripped this yr, but to cast dispersions. And what was the result? A suggestions to just bring extras to the party. Well, that's very exclusive, don't you think? There are terriffic people on this board who would love to plan to come to NYC from wherever, Baltimore, Cali, denver, etc, that won't come just to hope to get some at a party. That defeats the purpose of this forum.

Now, a solution, if you think one is needed (although I only heard about last yr's problem; none this yr) would be to do what Pam did: Offer to become a third party, an intermediary for others who are strangers. That was very forward thinking on her part whereas Ang only tried to cast fear and doubt onto this entire community. I personally don't appreciate that tack. I choose to stand up for what I believe in, which is the kindness of the people who believe in the music I do. Hell the beacon is all of our home and we ought to act like we have some faith in each other. Don't you trust people not to run off w your gear if you step away from your seat, for example?

I've traded for tix on this board and never been let down. I appreciate the trust and tickets I have gotten and sent here. It means a LOT.

Peace

well that certainly is one way to look at it. Or, you can just continue to poo-poo over everything Angela says or does around here, which is what i see you doing lately Woody.


It is a valid warning to be careful about just blindly sending someone money around here. People have been burned. Sorry if you feel as if a vibe is being ruined by a gentle reminder for our friends on this board to be careful.

Linnie, I sold 2 6th row center LOGE tickets to a great and wonderful person who now gets to take his son who plays guitar to the show with him. And I will me meeting up to say hello as we had a nice little email correspondence going. BTW, I got all my tickets through Ticketmaster, and the above from a guy on another board. There are lots of great people in this scene and lots of great people on this site. You included Linnie. :-)

Just wanna give a public thanks to Allmansfan2000 . I picked up 2 tickets at face value. Didn't know each other from a hole in the wall. After a few e-mail exchanges we could tell we were dealing with legit folks and the transaction based on good faith went perfectly.

Thanks.

It's all good people. It's just that there are quite a few people in this part of the forum that aren't regular posters, and we don't "know" them as well. That's all.

I have my own little story to tell regarding selling tickets on this site, Beacon parties, and the goodness of people. Excluding my own, names have been omitted, but everything below is the true story of someone who doesn't get out to big cities too often.

Two years ago, I purchased three tickets for a Friday and Saturday show. Family circumstances caused one of my friends to cancell so I had an extra ticket for each night. I posted an offer for Friday's show and an unfamiliar named said he would buy the ticket. We made arrangements to meet in front of the Beacon Hotel at a particular time. I didn't even get his name, just cell phone number and jacket he would be wearing.

As fate would have it, I checked into my room and quickly found there was a party already started in the same hotel. Imagine that!! Well someone asked if I would like to partake in the backroom festivities, and being sort of a friendly sort I said sure. Before I knew what was happening there were doobies everywhere, welcome to New York I thought. Somehow I realized to check my watch and I realized I was late for the ticket deal. running as fast as I could I flew into my room grabbed the tickets and ran down the stairs. Couldn't wait for the elevator. I was so freaking high my feet never touched the stairs, probably the only reason I didn't trip and break my head open.

Sure enough, the man in the coat was there, and we made our exchange. Spinning back upstairs I went to my room to put the money away when I looked at the tickets. Ugh, I gave him Saturday's ticket not Friday's ticket. What the hell am I going to do now?

As I'm trying to think logically as my buzz continues to grow the guy calls me to say he thinks I gave him a better ticket then he was expecting. I told him it wasn't a better ticket but a ticket for the wrong show, so we agreed to meet again. So I grab the tickets and fly (literally) downstairs again, and we make the switch, successfully (we think) this time.

The combination of highstakes economics and backroom smokebuzz was taking its toll. I needed to take a deep breath so I return to the party. Now there are people everywhere, think of the Marx Brothers movie where all those folks fell out of the room. Did I mention the jello? There was jello, jello, everywhere, all sorts of colors, people, backroom, jello, yowser. Finally I said enough, went back to the room to regroup and when I did I checked the tickets and...................you guessed it, I gave him two tickets so now I'm a ticket short. What a d*&khead. Man this straightened me out in a hurry. I called the guy on his cell and told him I think I gave him my ticket too. He started laughing and I'm thinking uhoh here it comes, but no he says he will meet me in front of the Beacon at 7:45 and sure enough he did.

Everything worked out fine, I met a real nice guy, and the buzz returned quite nicely thank you. I still can't believe I gave away the wrong ticket twice in one night and everything turned out great for everyone. The magic of the Beacon. 19 days and counting. :-)

Man, there are so many morals to that story it's incredible. Glad it worked out. Got any extras to 3/31 this year?

I've been thinking, that back room should have a sign like they have at saunas and hot tubs. No more than 20 minutes or we're coming in after you. Whew!!!!!!!!!!!

The story really is true, I told it to keep things light. Half the time I've ended up with extras and never had any problems getting rid of them. Last time I sent an extra to someone Pam recommended and no problems. Just like the ad says, no sticking when you use Pam.
