Watch Out for Red Flags When Purchasing Football Tickets
As football fans are buying, selling and showing off their postseason football tickets there are some important tips to remember:
• Avoid fraud by purchasing tickets through the NFL-sanctioned ticket exchange or a third-party exchange that will guarantee the validity of tickets.
• If you post a picture of your ticket on a social networking site make sure you blur out the barcode on the ticket to avoid a scammer stealing the information to create a fake ticket.
• Avoid buying tickets from anyone on the street or near the venue. They are more likely to be stolen or counterfeit tickets.
• As potential protection in case the tickets you purchased do not arrive, it is best to use a credit card when buying your tickets. However, make sure the seller is legitimate before providing your credit card information.
