    I was browsing yesterday and someone was selling a 2019/2020 Epic Pass for $700. The seller said the pass was bought by a first time season pass holder and was paid for for but it had not been setup with any account or linked to any person.
    I have always had a Perisher account so when I buy things I link them to my account then assign to family members.
    I don't want to buy the pass but just wondering if this is even possible? Can a first time Epic pass holder buy a pass and not assign a user or link to an account?
    I was going to post the ad but it was marked as sold this morning.

    Yeah you need a login. Might not have a photo attached but I wouldn’t trust it.

    Its impossible to buy a pass without an address , email , phone etc.
    Basically a profile.
    However the kicker is. When you present to Perisher office. They ask for the same credit card as was used to buy the pass.

    That's what I thought, I assumed it was a scam, but just thought I would ask the brains trust on the forum.
