Avoiding Ticket Scams During The NCAA Tournament

Avoiding Ticket Scams During The NCAA Tournament

The Better Business Bureau is warning basketball fans to be cautious when buying game tickets.
The Better Business Bureau is warning fans of UK and EKU to be cautious when buying tickets to cheer on their teams.

Scammers will take advantage of excited fans who want to see their teams play in person.

To avoid buying fake tickets or buying tickets that never get delivered, watch for red flags.

Heather Clary with the BBB says to buy at your own risk when getting tickets from scalpers, which she adds is illegal in many cities.

When buying online, Clary said, "Buy from familiar sources, reliable sources, or straight from the venue or school."

The only way to guarantee buying real tickets is to buy directly from the school playing in the game or from Ticketmaster.

Never wire money to a ticket seller, try to use PayPal or a credit card.
