Ticket Sale Scams – WABI-TV morning news

Russ and Joy VIDEO how to not be scammed when buying tickets to concerts and events.

Buyer Beware:

  • Buy tickets directly from the venue or event promoter, either online or at their box office.
  • If you are buying from a reseller, find one associated with the original ticket seller, the venue, or the concert prompter and make sure to research the seller.
  • Never wire money to buy tickets.
  • Use payment methods that come with buyer protection.
  • Examine your tickets to make sure they are authentic. Authentic tickets will sometimes have a hologram or colored paper between the front and back.
  • Check the seating chart of the venue, to verify the seats actually do exist.
