Fans in New York are getting taken by a someone placing ads on Craigslist for Lady Gaga tickets and Yankees tickets, and reselling them multiple times according to silive.com. There’s nothing new about ticket scams on Craigslist, but in this case the police failed to go after the man because they said he sold legitimate tickets.
Or at least that is what the buyer is saying. But just because they were the old hard tickets and not the new electronic tickets doesn’t mean you don’t have to worry. Selling counterfeit tickets that look real has been going on long before the new electronic tickets came around. But now crooks are taking advantage of peoples trust in the old hard tickets and just counterfeiting them like in the old days.
What can you do about it? Don’t buy from Craigslist to start with. And if you do buy tickets from the Craigslist website, make sure it is a legitimate ticket broker selling the tickets and you can check them out through their website or the Better Business Bureau.
With the rising prices of concert tickets such as Lady Gaga and the high prices of Yankee tickets at Yankee Stadium, fans are looking for any way to save money. But in the paper, on the web, and outside the stadium or arena, there are ticket sellers just looking for a patsy.
The safest place to buy legitimate concert tickets and sports tickets is from a long time ticket service with a A+ Better Business Bureau rating. To get the best prices for legitimate tickets, find a ticket seller with no hidden service charges or fees added to the cost of their tickets.
Buy your concert tickets and sports tickets from Preferred Seating Tickets, and you won’t have to worry about if you will get scammed, or if you paid too much.
