Tips for avoiding Ticket Scams:
SorryItSold can be a great resource both for acquiring tickets to sold out shows and as an aid to those who are no longer able to go through with their event plans. Unfortunately however, Ticket scams are some of the easiest scams to fall victim to. Because a ticket is just a piece of paper to be used at a later time, people take greater risks and liberties when purchasing them. Here are a few tips to keep you from a big disappointment come event day;
-The number one rule to remember is to always have transactions for tickets occur in person. The majority of scams in this section happen when transactions occur using online money transfers like Western Union or PayPal. Fraudsters (usually from abroad) will ask that potential buyers send a deposit, or the full amount, before they send the tickets. They typically then disappear once the money has been received.
– When meeting locally, try to meet the seller at a place where you can have the tickets verified, like a Ticketmaster or the venue itself. You may want to call ahead to ensure that they are both willing and able to check that particular event for you.
– Research the prices for different tickets offered at the event prior to replying to an ad – if the deal seems too good to be true, it most likely is.
– Be careful of transactions that seem to be happening too fast for you to feel comfortable with the process. While certain situations may require a quick sale, these should only be done in person and with hard tickets. Anyone asking you to transfer them money so they can mail tickets should have time to wait for you to assess the situation and ask questions if you feel it necessary. Scammers like to put unnecessary pressure on people so they make poor decisions. Chances are if you are being rushed into something, it isn’t going to end well.
– Be very wary of E-tickets. Scammers have been known to abuse the fact that e-tickets can be easily reproduced. They will print off as many copies of a certain ticket as possible. All of these tickets will work perfectly when entering the event, but only the first one scanned will be valid – everyone who follows the first person to the event will be denied entry.
– Box Office tickets also offer a potential hazard as the scammers may not change the name that the Pre-Order tickets are under at the box office, once again denying you entry.
* Because of this, SorryItSold.com does not recommend purchasing e-Tickets or box office tickets of any kind from users. *
Tips For Avoiding Rental Scams:
Hunting for rental housing in any city can be exhausting. Going to view small dingy one-bedroom apartments ‘accidentally’ listed as 2 bedrooms or a small dark apartment described as ‘huge’ and ‘bright’ is frustrating. Even worse is paying a deposit on property that does not exist.
Here are some tips to help you avoid some of the mistakes that can be made when looking for rental property:
• Be aware of offers that seem too good to be true. This is especially true if it involves sending money to a third party. In these circumstances, it’s probably not legitimate.
• Be cautious of giving your personal information. You may get asked for your social insurance/security number, bank account, or credit card numbers. However, keep in mind that a landlord may need specific information when filing out a rental application form in person to do credit and reference checks.
• Get recommendations from people you know. This way you are more likely to deal with reputable agencies or landlords.
• Don’t give up your money too quickly. No money should change hands until the property has actually been rented.
• Be careful when looking online. There have been reported cases where a renter found the same pictures of an apartment for rent but at a different address. Or sometimes, the property doesn’t exist at all.
• Find out the terms of your lease. It’s always a good idea to read the fine print on your rental contract and find out if there is a penalty for early termination of your lease.
• Do a reasonableness check on rental rates for similar properties in the same area. If the rent seems too low, do more research.
If you think you have been scammed, we encourage you to call your local police department.
Tips to Avoid Vacation Rental Scams:
Renting a vacation home for your next trip can be a wonderful experience that gives you long-lasting memories of a comfortable, luxurious experience. But for some vacationers, planning your stay at a vacation rental property can turn from a dream vacation into a nightmare.
Every year the Internet Crime Complaint Centre, Consumer Affairs the FBI receive countless reports from individuals who fell victim to vacation rental scams. The most common complaints individuals register about vacation rentals in California involve dirty, un-maintained properties and properties not actually being available when the guests arrive.
For example, classified sites, while an excellent resource, is a hotbed of vacation rental scammers. It is notorious for having false listings posted by anonymous users who are trying to get you to fork over private information or to wire them a deposit – when often the property is not as advertised or doesn’t exist at all.
But the few bad eggs shouldn’t dissuade you from experiencing a wonderful vacation rental stay. Just follow these tips to avoid vacation rental scams to have a safe, wonderful stay in a vacation rental home.
• Never wire funds to someone you do not know. It is nearly impossible to recover lost funds if the vacation rental turns out to be a scam. Using a credit a card is a much safer option in case of fraud, if they have a reputable dispute resolution department.
• Ask for a rental agreement. Most reputable renters or property management organizations require a rental agreement for the safety of both the renter and the company.
• Have a real conversation with the agency representing the home or homeowner. Search online for the name and phone number of the agency to make sure it really exists. E-mail is too anonymous, so pick up the phone and make the call. REALLY IMPORTANT!
• Look for reviews, testimonials and references from past tenants. Reviews are a great way to get actual renters’ honest feedback about the vacation rental properties. Do your research.
• Find out how much of a security deposit may legally be requested in your state or province, as vacation rental scammers will often ask for extra money in the deposit.
• Ask the property owner or vacation rentals agency about the local attractions. They should be knowledgeable about events, sites and attractions for vacationers to experience.
Use a reputable website that screens all the properties it lists. As always, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. You can never be too careful. Only rent vacation homes from property owners you trust and reputable vacation rental companies.
