Beware of Ticket Scams
Tickets for the big game can be an even bigger rip-off. There are thousands of Super Bowl tickets currently listed on Craig’s List, but the site offers no guarantees of any kind and does not require identification of its listers. Buying in person isn’t always an improvement, as it’s gotten easier and easier for scammers to make fake tickets that look real.
In general, avoid scams by being skeptical of:
- Offers that sound “too good to be true”
- Pushy sales tactics
- Poor quality of merchandise
- Offers that require wire transfer of funds
