The bad guys are all of a sudden good! Oh, wait…

While the scalping is increasingly taking place digitally, there is still plenty of money being made.

‘TicketSwap makes it easier and ostensibly safer to get second-hand tickets, but that’s also why con artists like to make use of the service. Their verification goes through facebook and is not airtight.’

The truth is, there is no need for external secondary ticketing platforms. In fact, artists and organizers who truly have their fans best interests at heart, should do everything in their power to avoid their tickets from being sold on these platforms.

Nice, free delivery! If you like reading about shady ticketing businesses and/or screaming at your screen you’ll also enjoy this.

Nice, now I’m depressed!

Once more for those in the back: external secondary resale platforms simply aren’t necessary.
