But it is even better, because it is actually part of the Southern California City Pass (as is the Los Angeles City Pass).

How to Buy Tickets on Craigslist Without Getting Scammed

Craigslist Tickets section has a lot of posters offering cheap tickets to local SD theme parks and events. Unfortunately, some of these people are running scams, happy to take your money and leave you without valid tickets. I've seen scams like selling plastic Disneyland cards that were never validated at a store (therefore are worthless), or trying to sell souvenir ticket stubs as real tickets (do you know what a real ticket looks like?)

To minimize the chance of falling for a scam, do the following:

1. Ask for a phone number to call them back. If they won't provide one, don't do business with them.

2. Tell them they will need to provide an ID and a bill of sale. That will scare most scammers away.

3. Don't buy plastic gift cards without a store receipt showing they were actually purchased.

4. Meet in a public place like a fast food restaurant.

5. Bring a cell phone and a friend.

6. Bring a bill of sale and ask them to sign it. Verify their identity with a look at their drivers license.

7. Trust your instincts. If you don't trust the person, don't buy tickets from them.

8. Maybe your friend can snap a photo with the cell phone, just in case (in front of their car with license plate if you are really lucky).

9. If you up a victim of a scam, report it to, and notify the police.
