Not only are there hidden fees, on some expensive concerts Flash tickets won't allow you to sell or transfer tickets. You have to show your ID and use your tickets. I have lost hundreds of dollars on tickets where I booked in advance, couldn't go, and couldn't transfer. It is ridiculous. I am not a scalper. I buy 2 tickets and sometimes something comes up. That just adds insult to injury with the outrageous fees that are added on during the checkout process.
