Two Arrested in Craiglist Counterfeit Disney World Ticket Scam

Just imagine for a second.

You’ve put in hours of work. You’ve followed all of my tips. You’ve saved for months, or even years, for your vacation to the happiest place on earth. Then, when you get to the gates of your first Disney World theme park, you find out that you’ve purchased counterfeit tickets.

That’s exactly the situation that a couple of guests have found themselves in recently when they replied to a Craiglist ad offering discounted tickets to Walt Disney World.

One of the victims filed a police report on January 14, after purchasing four counterfeit Disney World tickets from a Craigslist ad promoted by Branden Bullerin, 19.

It turns out that Bullerin was posing as a Disney Cast Member, offering up his complimentary tickets to tourists seeking a discount.

Bullerin met the victim at the food court of Orlando International Airport and exchanged tickets for cash.

Once undercover law enforcement made contact with Bullerin, by replying to his Craigslist ad, they also met up with him and made an arrest.

Bullerin named Jimmy Messer as his co-conspirator and the pair were charged with a misdemeanor for the scam.

There are lots of options when purchasing your tickets to Disney World, and a lot of them are genuine. However, the only other company I recommend buying your tickets from besides Disney (with their high prices), is Undercover Tourist (a genuine discount ticket supplier). Yes, there are other reputable third party ticket vendors. But I have two golden rules that I swear by when recommending a service:

  1. I only recommend companies that I personally have extensive experience with. I have bought many tickets over the years from Undercover Tourist and I have never had a problem.
  2. I only recommend the absolute best. The reason I choose to only recommend Undercover Tourist for your Disney World tickets is that they offer the cheapest price and the best service.

Always be careful when buying Disney World tickets from third parties. Never buy from Craigslist and, as I recommend, only purchase discount tickets from reputable third party vendors like Undercover Tourist (by the way, Undercover Tourist are now offering 3 extra days for free if you purchase a 4 day Park Hopper ticket at – a special link for my readers).

I don’t want you to end up in the same situation as the guests that got scammed.

Also, don’t forget to share this with everyone you know so that they don’t fall victim to this scam in the future.
