Got burned for 2 Saints Tickets!



Tickets were for tonight's game! Somehow the tickets were sold as E tickets and the owner gave the original tickets up for sale which got back to me! I was able to get copies of the tickets so that I could file a police report! More to follow.

Were you denied entry or did you get to see the game?

Got them from scalpers outside the dome. They were regular tickets not reprints or etickets. The ticket office didn't offer any option except to file a police report.

Dude, we have been talking about that kind of shite on this board for two weeks now. Don't trust those folks selling outside the dome.

Understood, I have read some of the stories. The only thing that Ican say, "This will not happen to me on Monday night!"

This is why you shouldn't listen to people about buying tickets outside the stadium. These games are not LSU vs Tulane or Saints vs a 4 and 12 team.

To all, you can always buy good tickets at the street level ticket office gate A, all season ticket holders that list their tickets on ticketexchange can be bought there all the way up till 15 mins AFTER the game starts, avoid street rip offs, many people don't know this so remember it for next year.

I would never buy tickets on the street, why would people do this?

Because for every fake ticket story there are probably 500 people that bought tickets on the street without any problems.

I can't confirm this, but it was my understanding that when ticket holders (Saints and BCS) reported their tickets lost or stole, they had to sign an affidavit saying that the tickets were lost or stolen. While it doesn't get you in the game, it might provide some recourse against those ticket holders that attempt to do this.

I should say I'd never do it for big things like this weekend. I did it at the LSU ole miss basketball game and countless baseball games, but I like to buy from older people or family men and women.

I am sure the crook would just sign some BS name and address so you couldn't find them

Account number is on every Hard Ticket. They can trace it back to the original account holder and investigate.

FWIW I bought 2 outside the dome last night in 155 for $300 total. Had the dude walk us to the gate. Tickets worked fine. I'm still looking for 4 to the BCS hopefully I have the same luck.

Whenever I buy from scalpers, I always get them to walk me to the gate. If they won't do it, then the ticket is probably fake.

I don't understand why police don't put a stinging this shite. It's fricking bull shite these a-holes are walking away with thousands of stolen dollars.

It's going to come down to only buying from people you know or trust. I have a friend who flips tickets and he said it's the ticket holders doing this stuff (albeit the ticket flippers may end up with the bad tickets).
