    @Wendy McCall Why do you think it might be a fake? Have to say it doesn’t look like confirmations I’ve had recently from BA, the logo is different for one thing

    It's for last year, so what happened when the ticket holder tried to fly? Jan 15 '21 at 12:28

    This is a photo of a screen, not a ticket. Jan 17 '21 at 1:59

Valid tickets have either a booking reference (PNR) or a ticket number or both. That is a unique identifier. If there is one on there, you can almost always check the booking on the airline's website or give them a call.

If there is no PNR or ticket number, than it's not really a ticket. Could be a receipt, or an itinerary, or a fake. However, you couldn't use it to check in.

    @WendyMcCall If someone is telling you "I had a ticket for that flight but I had an issue and now I'm stuck in Australia and I need money and blah blah blah" then the chances of them being a scammer are very high. But without the full story or more details it's difficult to say anything. The picture you include in your post does not prove anything either way. There could have been an actual booking (which may or may not have been used, for whatever reason, and could have been paid and/or refunded, or not), or not.

    The Departure date is shown as February 2020, almost a year in the past. How can this be relevant to something going on at this moment, or to an assertion that this is a current and valid booking? Jan 15 '21 at 19:10
