    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.

    I think they're selling the credit card too.

    Yep. This has caused me issues when my card was fraudulently used and had to be cancelled.

    What ended up happening? I'm in the exact same situation this year and will have a different card than what was used.

    Simple solution is to bring the cancelled card along with you (assuming that it was cloned, rather than lost) and explain what happened.

    I had my old card number in my eWallet on my phone so was able to prove it that way
