Post 1st poster’s selling sites and tickets.
Two new threads have 1st time poster selling a campsite and tickets. Any words to those looking to purchase on ways to verify validity of the item up for sale. I am purchasing a ticket from someone when I arrive and this person is a longtime member on the forum. That makes me know I will not get ripped off and money/ticket will change hands in person. That can’t always happen so how does one verify what they are buying is the real deal?

All I can say is be careful when purchasing. Use your head. Last minute sketch is always out there.

Were I in the market, I'd ask them their FB name. Assuming they have one; everyone does, right? :?

Once ya got that, find the person's name on FB, see how many friends in common you have w/ them, and PM one or two of your friends about the seller. You should be able to vet them fairly quickly that way.

Or, get a phone number and have a friendly chat. Folks I know that use Craigslist regularly weed out scammers that way; few are willing to take a scam to that level. Most aren't good con artists, they are just using the anonymity of technology to run their game. Nearly all scammers won't give out a phone #, or will not respond to the request.

Mama's advice is worthy: Buyer beware. 24/7.

Only pay via Paypal. Paypal offers buyer protection. Presumably it takes a little bit of time to dispute a charge, but if you got a fake ticket/no ticket you would almost certainly be able to show that for your dispute and get your money back. Granted it would be a pain, but it is a layer of safety.

Inquire the name of the campsite reservation and check it through the park office. I’d even go so far as to have a 3 way call; yourself, seller and park office to ensure transfer of reservation.

i was waiting for my daughter at the gate brr creek and a woman in front of us her ticket was already used. this is a bit different in that there actually is a ticket not a virtual ticket but be careful. it would suck to lose it all in order to save a few bucks. hope volka introduces terry and i to you all. safe trip dont forget the work zones on I-10 they are heavily patroled.
