Default I think I bought fake tickets... (MSG)

Hi everyone!

So I've bought tickets from scalpers a couple of times before, and I always inspect the ticket before going to the show, and I've never had any problems or doubts until now...

I bought a pair of tickets to the NYC show on Stubhub, and maybe I'm just paranoid (hopefully haha) but I'm almost certain that I got fake tickets.

EDIT; I removed the pic, my tickets are valid

I know nothing about any of this.

But if I did, I'd think this was indeed, fake.

But again, I really have no idea.

Hmmm... I don't really know much about this either. My tix were all downloads so I never got "real" tix this timers around (shakes fist)

Stub hub has a guarantee... Not like you want to find out the night of, tho. I wonder if they would be of any help with your concerns now?

Good luck and i hope someone has better info for you and that they are real.

I googled what some MSG tickets look like. They're not FF shows, but compare:

And here's a counterfeit:

Good luck.

I'm going to buy tickets from a largeseller this week in NYC as well and I just told him your concerns and he said that SH has strong buyer guarantees, so he highly doubts there are fake tickets up..

Hey there, Erikka!

My name is Emilee and I am writing from the Executive Customer Care Team at StubHub. I can assure you that your order is covered by the StubHub FanProtect Guarantee, ensuring you receive tickets that are authentic, and valid for entry.

I took a look at your picture of the tickets, and they do not appear to be fake. Tickets are not always printed perfectly in the lines, and this can often cause tickets to look different, or have smudged lettering.

If for any reason you receive any issues at the event, just give us a call at 1.866.STUBHUB! Our #1 goal is to make sure you get into this Foo Fighters show with the tickets you paid for.

We're definitely here for our fans, Erikka! If you have any questions or concerns for us, we're happy to assist you! Just give us a call at 1.866.STUBHUB and any representative will be happy to assist you!

Thanks!

Sincerely,

Emilee D.
Executive Customer Care
StubHub!

Whoa - that's impressive! I've actually used them to sell tickets when I couldn't go to a show or had extras (at face plus fees) and I have to say they're very reliable and upfront about everything.

No shit!!! I Was thinking that you somehow summoned them to this thread.
I got my DC ticket from StubHub--didn't pay an arm & a leg, just a few extra toes
Very glad to know they have such great customer service.

Wow, kudos to StubHub! I've both bought and sold with them and have been very pleased every time. Super professional and I believe their guarantee. This just confirmed I will be using their services again in the future.

I know...my husband was acting suspicious too. I don't care if this girl is taken care of. I would be so sad if I got no Foo and screwed over for tickets!

Thanks Emilee!

I've contacted Stubhub and the guy told me to scan the tickets so they can check them for me, so I'll probably know tomorrow.

My tickets are printed on standard Ticketmaster stock, however the wording on your ticket is the same.

I agree with those who have said that StubHub stand by their guarantee. A friend ended up with tickets that wouldn't scan, and after calling StubHub, they hooked her up with a new one.

Hopefully everything works our for you Errika, and you can start to get excited for the show instead of worrying about it.

The main problem is that I'm going to be waiting in line a couple of hours before the doors open to have a good spot. So if my ticket doesn't scan, even if I can find new tickets, I'll lose my spot.

Thanks for the reply!

i've had a problem before with stubhub but it was resolved. i bought e-tickets a few months in advance. about 2 weeks before the concert, i got an email saying that those e-tickets were invalid for whatever reason? very fishy. they sent me another email with a new set of e-tickets. i was worried the day of the show i wouldn't be able to get in but luckily i had no problems. it looks like they follow through on their promises but i doubt i'll ever buy from them again.

How do they scan the tickets? Do you need to goto a ticketmaster outlet?

I always read their guarantee that they will "make it right" but I always wonder how they do that if the event is sold out.. I wonder if they have an in with the venues for them to leave some extra tickets in case of issues?

I had to scan a copy of the ticket and email it to them so they can check it. I don't know how they're going to proceed tough.
