    First of all having been on this site for over a decade I've made lifelong friends & been helped by many members to get me out of a hole and I appreciate that.

    Because of this I mistakenly believed all members on this site were genuine, happy to help, sell or buy tickets in a safe environment.

    I am guilty of complacency,

    During Christmas I saw a post offering tickets for Sheff Utd, this game had gone to a free for all and we were badly stuck for tickets. I checked the sellers feedback where I saw he had 2 good trades & 1 negative where he had pulled out of a deal which while not being ideal isn't up with stealing.
    I sent the member cash immediately via revolut & told him I'd be in contact closer to the game about meeting up.

    A few days later he offered me the same tickets ( main stand pairs) for villa (4) & palace (2) & suggested they may be available for atletico. I accepted the league tickets and sent the cash again. On NYE he contacted me again to say would I be taking the Atletico tickets as his cousin was eager to sell, at this stage I started to doubt my good fortune but nevertheless sent £120.

    Sure enough on January 1st I text to ask for phone numbers for the next day , he replied to say he was out, when I text back on the 2nd, he said he wwas in the hospital & there was a problem with the fan update but he had 1 for me. That lunchtime I told him I didn't want to deal with him anymore and he was to send back my cash.

    He suggested this was difficult as it was other peoples cards/cash. I explained I only dealt with him & I want cash returned from him, money came in dribs & drabs & I received the last of the cash this morning. While investigating this member I found he has turned over others in the last couple of seasons, mostly for 1 or 2 cards and always with the same story.

    I have contacted him this morning and asked that he pay these back & leave the site, I am aware of who he is & could contact the authorities but as I don't know his personal circumstances maybe this isn't the best way to go.

    As for the future & the title of the post I've noticed a lot more members on the site, you're all very welcome. But if I'm dealing with someone for the first time in future I will be demanding a connection on Facebook or a copy of their id & some form of paper trail in case things go wrong.

    I have no problem providing same & if you have nothing to hide then you have nothing to fear.
    I've also been told paypal is safest way to pay unknown vendors & I will be using that in these cases.

    Lastly I encourage all to use the feedback system correctly please.
    It shows who the seller/buyer who the other person has done business with before.
    This may help others to come to their own conclusions before handing cards or money over to a possible stranger.

    One side note I've posted several times about using the feedback on profiles

    I'm really annoyed to hear that people were let down last season by the same cunt and they didn't leave feedback to warn others

    Too much me feitn attitude

    Shocking carry on considering the site was built on Friendship, loyalty and helping other people out. Also it’s never a good time of the year to fuck anyone about, but over Christmas is bad form, as that could have been presents etc .


    When I used to go to games, I used to use the same few people the whole time , and never had issues . People used to laugh and say there was a “clique” on the site . Yeah it was sound lads and lassies helping each other’s out.

    Shame this happened, but one clown shouldn’t ruin it for everyone . Agree with the posts above about if you are unsure it’s no harm in asking for further forms of ID etc. I known on PayPal you can use Goods and Serives, and it’s a extra charge, but at least you can get your money back that way if it all goes Pete Tong.

    Fair play Damo for bringing it up.

    I am 99.9% sure I know exactly who it is. Negative feedback should have been left for letting down a member in May 2014 for the Newcastle match that was the last game of that season but that member decided not to do it after he got his money back. The scammer then disappeared off IK for about two seasons.

    Just confirmed above now by Northside Red that that is the exact person I was thinking off.

    Same poster boasted to me many seasons back that his family had six season tickets and, I am afraid when I heard a boast like that when I did not request such information it made me very wary of the poster.

    Agree with everything damo has said and I’m also guilty of not using the feedback system as Anyone I’ve dealt with on the site has always been 100% to deal with , whether buying or selling

    A suggestion might be for people to use PayPal when dealing with those they may not know personally

    you’ll get your money back from them if what you paid for doesn’t arrive

    I remember some had issues with him for the last game of the season in 2017 against Boro. When I saw posts before Christmas that he was looking for tickets and offering tickets for later in the season in return alarm bells went off.

    Can anyone on here confirm either by pm or public post who this person actually is and provide as much information as possible..I'm trying to get my money back and maybe it might be a case for the powers that be to deal with..

    Yeah he took cash off me for a United single but wasn't able to provide seat details or the card or anything so I pressured him for the money back and finally got it back after a couple of days. Would echo what everyone else is saying re using the feedback feature on the site.

    The feedback is vital. I'm travelling fcuk all now, but when I was looking for tickets or passing them on it was a great help so I'd always leave it. I'd worry if he was at that on here is he at it elsewhere also.
