Craig was quick to respond and quick with the payment. A model COT user. I highly recommend working with him!

Contacted to buy a car camping pass. His post read $150 for it, with no mention of additional fees for shipping. After we messaged and agreed on it, he gave me his PayPal info, and I sent the $150. He then sent me a message saying that I owed him an additional $10 for shipping. I inquired as to why his post made no mention of this, and why it was $10 when he could send it in a flat rate shipping envelope for $6.95...His replay was "Please send the $10.". I sent the $10, but felt as though he was rude, and I would not do business with again.

Craig seems like a nice guy but his top priority appears to be making money off of trades, NOT in ensuring you get the ticket you paid him for. In my 24 years of going to Phish shows, he is the first trader to ever take my money and NOT deliver the ticket, leaving me outside the venue when Phish took the stage.
Let me provide some details:
I posted a note on cashortrade over three months before the 2016 Phish Dicks Commerce City shows, seeking field tickets for all three nights (face value about $210). His response was that he could get me the tickets if I paid him $300 immediately. Usually I deliver funds when someone delivers me the tickets, but based on the difficulty of getting these tickets, I said OK, even at this price, which was clearly not face.
Craig wanted me to pay him outside of Cashortrade, which the site explicitly warns against. I paid him through Cashortrade per the site's guidelines. Several months passed and a few weeks before the shows I resumed conversations with him to determine how I could get the tickets, as I assumed they had already been shipped by Phish to the buyers. It quickly became clear he had sold me tickets that he did not possess. He now had to get an extremely sold out set of tickets from someone in his network.
Stress levels increased now that I was dependent on an unknown third party. He told me he'd get me the ticket the day before the show, so I flew from California to Colorado not knowing if I would get a ticket, and hundreds of dollars sunk into a hotel. Thursday (the day before the show), he told me he was still working on the ticket. Friday rolled around. He still didn't have the ticket. Stress levels rising.
He told me his contact had fallen through. He said he was looking for tickets. About an hour before the show he got me an electronic ticket for night 1 (not nights 2 or 3). By this time the lines had formed and I stood in line well over an hour, completely missing both Ghost and No Men In No Men's Land.
The next day, same story, he looked for tickets, but waited and waited to buy one online. There were plenty of tickets available on StubHub and I asked my friend why he thought Craig was being so slow to purchase me one, since it was his obligation to deliver me a ticket one way or another. My friend told me he was obviously trying to nickel and dime and save every penny possible, hoping ticket prices would drop as showtime approached. At 645pm or so, Craig delivered me a ticket electronically, only after I had to persistently tell him he needed to get it to me before the lines formed. There were plenty of tickets available on online sites. Recall I had paid OVER face value for these tickets, so the thorough lack of customer service and my increased stress levels were not expected.
Night 3: I thought he would have things handled by now. There were lots of people outside the venue seeking tickets, and apparently not many up for sale. StubHub had some but as the hours passed by, the StubHub tickets started to disappear. Craig said sorry he could not deliver me a ticket. He suggested I go miles away to a StubHub outlet and buy it myself (I had no car and time was running out). An hour before the show all the online ticket sites were sold out. A hundred people outside the venue were seeking tickets for the sold out show. Craig said again sorry he couldn't get me a ticket. That was the extent of his apology.
The show started, I could hear Moma Dance from outside the venue. I texted my friend inside to say I wasn't going to make it into the show. Stress levels high. Disappointment high.
Fortunately I saw someone with a ticket in hand and was able to buy it from them for $160 in cash, bringing my total expenditures on the three nights tickets to $460 (well over the $210 face value), and lots of stress thrown in.
To date Craig has never offered to refund the $160 I was forced to pay when he failed to deliver my night 3 ticket.
Again, Craig sounded like a nice guy, but anyone who sells tickets they don't possess, for over face value on cashortrade, and fails to follow through at whatever cost, should reconsider their sense of business ethics, and should be avoided with regards to ticket trading/buying.
If Craig reimburses me the $160 I was forced to spend on my night 3 ticket, I will be happy to remove this entire review; if this review is still online, you can assume that he has not reimbursed me.
