How to Resolve SeatGeek Fake Tickets by Yourself

Being turned away from a concert at the venue for a fake SeatGeek ticket is the most embarrassing feeling! Hopefully, you used a third party — like a credit card or PayPal — to pay for your tickets.

Contact Your Credit Card, Bank or PayPal

Remember to stay calm. Then:

  • Call the toll-free number on the back of your credit or debit card
  • Or contact the third-party payment provider, like PayPal or Venmo
  • Explain the fake ticket, where you purchased it, the date, and so on — the more information you can provide, the better!
  • Ask for a refund
  • Write down any confirmation numbers
  • And wait for your refund

Now, some providers have an excellent reputation for taking care of consumers. American Express, for example, is known for its "no questions asked" customer protection policy. They'll refund your money right away, even for fake tickets up to $300.

Other organizations can be challenging to work with, especially if you're not an attorney. Bank of America, for example, has a reputation for being difficult when it comes to debit card refunds. So, if you're struggling to get a refund after purchasing fake Seatgeek tickets, DoNotPay should be your first resource.

Did You Pay Cash for Fake SeatGeek Tickets?

If you paid cash through a Craigslist scam or parking lot "scalpers," there isn't much recourse. You should contact law enforcement and describe your situation. If enough people complain, maybe they'll eventually make an arrest.

Next, let's think about ways to protect yourself from SeatGeek fake ticket scams in the future.

How to Avoid Buying Fake SeatGeek Tickets in the Future

The best way to avoid concert ticket scams is to buy tickets directly from providers like SeatGeek, Eventbrite, and Ticketmaster. Or go directly to the local venue and buy them at the box office in person. Keep receipts!

  • Never pay cash for event tickets. Always use a credit card, debit card, or other third-party payment providers. This is an added layer of protection.
  • Never use Western Union to pay for event tickets. You'll have no recourse if they're fake.

And lastly, don't trust scalpers. Modern technology just makes it too easy to create fake tickets at home. It takes a printer, scanner, some good ink, and heavy-duty cardstock for printing. Fake tickets can fool the human eye but not the scanners used in the box office.

Now that we've covered everything you need to know about SeatGeek fake tickets, let's think about a few more ways to use DoNotPay. It's like having an attorney in the family!
