Went to Athens to scalp a ticket yesterday with '12+4=6' and a group of others and the tickets we bought ended up being fake. Obviously we were not very smart about it but if it wasn't us it would have been someone else. This low-life made about $500 off of us and there's no telling what he made off others.
Always ask the scalper if they're real. Even when he says yes you can judge a lot from his reaction or response.
Ask the scalper to walk up with you to the ticket line to see if the ticket will scan. If he's not willing to do that, it's a big red flag.
Obviously we were pretty na´ve about it and it cost us. We still had an hour before the game after we found out they were fake and tried to track this scum down around campus but he was smart enough to flee the scene.
Other than that I had a pretty positive experience at Athens. Cool town, good bar scene (although a little overcrowded), and fantastic tailgating. I'll be back, hopefully to watch a gamecock W. Still hate the dawgs.
