Indianapolis, Ind. – Our city is hosting three games for the NCAA Tournament this weekend, and BBB® serving Central Indiana encourages basketball fans to be informed before purchasing tickets or merchandise to support their favorite teams. You don’t want to spend money on a ticket that won’t get you into the game.
“Having the NCAA Midwest Regional in Indianapolis is great for the city,” said Tim Maniscalo, president and CEO of BBB serving Central Indiana. “Unfortunately, there are some people who will take advantage of this situation by selling fake tickets.”
When buying tickets, be on the lookout for deals with extreme ticket discounts that are most likely too good to be true. Major sporting events provide the ultimate opportunity for scammers to target avid and desperate fans who want tickets to the game, which become even more expensive and scarce than usual.
BBB serving Central Indiana offers these tips for purchasing your tickets:
