Beware! Stollen C.O.T.A. tickets

If you're buying from an individual be careful. Some nuckle head at FedX openned my envelope and stold our tickets. If the seller is legit, he should have no problem with you calling COTA and verifying the tickets. Just a heads up.

Call COTA and have them void the tickets if they are not GA , then have them re-issue you some new ones....

I did't read where the OP said he purchased directly from COTA.

Even if he did look how they are Kevin Schwantz so I would say even then its possible. Thats the only reason I am not going.

Not sure if you understood me to say I bought from an individual, but not the case. I bought direct from COTA. The envelope was clearly torn open. COTA shouldn't send these things without requiring a signature though.

COTA will cancel these and issue new ones. I didn't want to say it incase the dirt bag was going to take the trip out there to try to use them.

So that means he bought them directly from COTA?

You should be able to verify tickets bought from an individual as well, right?

Stolen tickets would no longer be legit if the original buyer reported them stolen to COTA. Sometimes you have to read between the lines
