So I made an offer for a gig ticket on ebay at just above face value (about £37). This was last week or perhaps longer ago.

I've just had an email from the seller which says:

"hi i will do you 1 ticket for 40 if once you have it inhand you let me send a cancel transaction requst after you have ticket"

However much I dislike touts, I am willing to pay £40. However, what exactly does that message mean? I don't see what will be achieved/lost by the second part of the message.

Any help appreciated.



  • If you agree to cancel the transaction he will get his final value fees back. Which is £4. I would personally tell him you will agree if he gives you a £4 reduction on the price. :D

    You probably already know this but remember though you only have 45 days for a Paypal claim so if the gig is in a few months time or after 45 days and the ticket will arrive in the week of the gig. You would have no comeback if it didn't arrive.
