I've never bought off CL before just cause I always thought it was sketch but I guess I just have to be careful when on there.
The less than retail is probably from season ticket owners. If you're doing craigslist, just make sure to do PayPal. Ask if it's coming from their season ticket account. If it came from tickemaster, they can send it to your email address or tm account.
Never take a printed out ticket. Like dude above posted, that's an easy way to try and scam someone. The printed ticket can be still used but the original hard ticket could still be valid, it's pretty much whoever gets there first. So I'm wary as well on hard tickets because they can still print out a ticket that's just as valid and get there before you.
What I do in those cases is if they say they're the season ticket owners to just email it to me from their account. If they give you any excuses then I'd probably stay away from that.
Luckily, I've never had a problem with warriors tickets. I've found some really great deals, only once where it seemed shady for some hard tickets. 2 different pairs of tickets from the same dude, lower levels too. It ended up being his company's season tickets, I still asked him to email me the tickets just in case and he did later on after the meet up.
I have been scammed before though, when I went to NY for the Knicks game, so probably not going to do meet ups out of town anymore cause I'm not familiar with their system.
