5. HOW DO ACCOUNTS WITH ‘FAKE’ EMAIL ADDRESSES WORK?

  • GTLLI recognizes you as an individual through the creation of your own personal  account record – not as someone’s spouse or friend.
  • The commercial computer system that we use requires every account to have a unique email address. GTLLI accounts can’t share email addresses. An email address, valid or not, identifies one particular account.
  • ‘Fake’ emails were invented to allow those who normally share a household email address to be identified as individual account holders in their own right.
  • YOU CANNOT use the account with the fake email address to make purchases or recover or change passwords because those things require sending receipts and confirmations to a valid email address.
  • If you buy tickets for 2 people, log into and buy all tickets from the account that has the valid email address.
