Even if the seller is reputable to avoid the fees.

Do you ever ask for references?
If you don't know someone in person (or have dealt with them many times and PERSONALLY know they are reputable) I would stick to sending it in a way where you have recourse if the tickets turn out to be bogus.

I wouldn't bother asking for references. I pay w/ a credit card, so if the tickets are bogus I'm just going to do a chargeback. If someone wants a non-recourse way of payment, like western union, then there's a 99.9% chance it's a scam.
