Avoid buying tickets from Scalpers or Brokers

Ticket resellers choose several methods to secure premium as well as previously sold-out ticket in large number for different events. They try mostly for events such as concerts, sports, music shows, etc. Most of the resellers do this job inside the vast connections of ticket contacts. They contact with season ticket holders, brokers, individual contacts and through it they make profit like Euroteam ticket scam incidence. Acquiring tickets by special presales is happened most of the time and many people are into trouble because of it. Therefore to avoid these problems presales mostly use distinctive barcodes.
Outside of these events, brokers work to make profit by bluffing people and fans who want to go for the event. They buy unsold tickets from broker’s office in advance. After that they show people that there are no tickets available. Unfortunately, people need to buy tickets for high prices from this ticket scalper as they want to go for the event. By all these cheap strategies scalpers cheat the people and make more profit by reselling these tickets. There are many scalpers who work regularly at particular events and venues. Even they have a pool of loyal buyers and fans who buy tickets regularly from them.
There are many scam artists that sometimes travels city to city to sell fake tickets to unsuspicious buyers for whatever they can get after selling the tickets. For popular events Euroteamtickets and other superior tickets are bar-coded and these tickets get scanned at the venue gate at the time of entry. Sometimes there are possibilities that scalpers may sell you the tickets that are scanned already because at the venue gate tickets are scanned once only.
       Nowadays scalpers or brokers are taking help of the internet. Some of them host their own websites and contact directly with their customers. Theses brokers are often provide some additional benefits to their customers like airfare or accommodation facilities to attract the people. But people should aware while choosing these at lower prices. It can be scam and you may suffer loss. You can choose Euroteamtickets in order to be at safer side and not to get cheated by these scalpers or brokers.

Online auctions (eBay) Ticket Scams

Founded in 1995, eBay is one of the great & notable success stories of the dot-com bubble; it is now a multi-billion dollar business with operations localized in over thirty countries. eBay expanded from its original "set-time" auction format to include "Buy It Now" standard shopping; shopping by UPC, ISBN, or other kind of SKU, online classified advertisements; online event ticket trading; online money transfers and other services.

Most eBay sellers and buyers are honest people who just want to turn waste of a person in the treasury of the other. But there are many people who make a living out of selling things on eBay, and the market for tickets is easy to use that way. Tickets are initially available online at face value, and can be sold online for a profit. You will often faced ticket sellers on eBay with multiple auctions for tickets to several events. These brokers are not professionals, but they make a regular profit. While eBay keeps personal information well hidden, eBay does provide ways to communicate with vendors and get some information. Try contacting a ticket seller, and request a response. If email bounces, inform eBay and do not deal with this seller. Do not contact the other bidders, let it be on eBay. If the seller does not answer, take this as a sign that he or she will not be committed to resolving disputes.
The problem with tickets purchased on eBay is that it is difficult to trace the history of the ticket. You do not know if the tickets directly from Ticketmaster or place, or if the notes were found in the street or stealing a parked car. Ticket sellers can be virtually anywhere in the world, then track down the seller to resolve a dispute can be difficult. eBay can cancel an account unsavory, but you still lost real money.
The tickets you buy through an online auction could be valid for tickets something but not what you think they are for. Before you buy, be sure to contact the seller and resolve all issues. The seller may claim that tickets for the seats are large, dead center, close up, but then turn out to be the seats in the east of Timbuktu. This could be considered fraud, and you might have a case of a dispute. But to some extent, it is caveat emptor. Almost all the major theaters in North America has a website with a floor plan to ask the seller about the location of the seat and try and save all the letters and emails.
According to this article from ZDNet News, eBay claims that less than one hundredth of one percent of eBay transactions are confirmed to be fraudulent, but potentially hundreds of fraudulent transactions per day. Ticket scams account for fraud than any other category of merchandise only other eBay. In 2008, Gregg and Scott (Communications of the ACM, April 2008) reported 0.73 complaints per 100 eBay comments in a sample of over 1 million comments in 2003 and 2005. In other words, in this time, just under 1% of the comments from eBay auction winners were negative comments about sellers. The authors also concluded that their study of the reputation system of eBay said that the rate of irregular transactions, fraudulent or accidental or not, is higher than that allowed by eBay.

Resale of lost/stolen tickets

Most of the European Concert tickets are uniquely identifiable, an original buyer may call the agency and then tell them that  a ticket as having been lost or stolen or destroyed, and the ticketing authority may invalidate the ticket and issue a replacement with a new ID. If someone tries to enter a place with a ticket whose identity has been reported as lost or stolen, the scanner will reject that ticket.  People may sell these supposed to be reported tickets and then the person buying them suffers losses.

In this type of scam even brokers can be victims, as many tickets sold by brokers were acquired by the broker who may have stolen tickets. A ticket may not be immediately reported as lost, even if the broker or the buyer can check the ticket at the ticket agency, tickets could be invalidated at a later date. When a consumer buys what turns out to be a bad ticket broker, the consumer will be refunded. But it's still a frustrating problem. Do not wait to check tickets and tracing their history.

Previously used tickets scam

Especially for high demand events Euroteam tickets and other advanced tickets are bar coded and individually numbered. The ticketing agency at the entrance to the site uses  the scanner to verify and allows entry by electronic tickets.

Scandal is the fact that these tickets are not marked or torn and it usually is returned to the client. Now if  the customer dismisses ticket, it appears to the naked eye as a valid ticket, even if the computer knows that the tickets have already been used.

Thus, an insider (like an Security Guard) position, grabs  discarded tickets and goes out. Seemingly out of the ticket an unsuspecting fan feels its  a bargain. With ticket prices these days,scammer can make a couple hundred dollars very quickly. Tickets are scanned at the gate and the computer rejects them, as they have been used. Another possibility is that the legal ticket holder enters the venue and keeps the ticket as usual. Ticket holder then leaves event venue early, Offers the ticket as simmingly low price. As the event has started, Scanner dismisses the previously used ticket, the ticket holder is long gone and the buyer loses their money.
