    Default Has anyone paid for tickets via Paypal "Reload Pack"?

    So I found a basically too good to be true deal for tickets on Craigslist, the phone number is in Washington state (not a huge deal, tons of transplants So. Cal right?). So they contact me back and say that their PayPal is "down", but they can leave the tickets at Will Call for us. Once we get the tickets and are inside, we can then pay them via Paypal Reload Pack. The deal is basically a 2 for 1 in the 200 level, only asking $500 for the pair.

    As mentioned, seems awfully weird for someone to trust people to just go to Will Call and get their tickets, and then pay via Paypal Reload Pack once inside the event.

    Thoughts? If it walks like a scam, and talks like a scam....

    **update, my wife just called her and said it sounded fishy and the gal hung up on her.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

    I bet they would charge you more than they are offering them for.
    So Sumi and beedee like this.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Never heard of it. I wouldn't take any chances.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    beedee, it's getting out of hand these days with scams. So many douche tards out there trying to find ways to get your money. Glad you backed out of that one. And yes, when I read your initial post I thought SCAM SCAM SCAM.

    I'm going to wait until the day of the game I want to go to and wait and see if sellers lower their prices on Stubhub. It seems the only way to go now. Good luck!

    Go Kings!
