    Try I have bought and sold on there before and never had a problem. Otherwise just check on the sellers rating on ebay and hope for the best!

    I found a guy on gumtree selling them for cheaper than on seatwave,etc. Any advice on how to go about them so I dont get scammed.

    In the past I have both bought and sold on ebay, not one problem. Yes be cautious, check feedback etc...
    You can find some great bargains too, I've always found ebay cheaper than seatwave & getmein.

    If you can wait for nearer the date, tickets will be available from people that can't make it, not necessarily the touts and there can be some good deals as they just want to sell, not make a profit.
