For college sports fans, the next few weeks are some of the most highly anticipated of the year. With sixteen March Madness games today alone, there’s no doubt that if fans across the nation aren’t glued to their televisions, they’ll be browsing the web for tickets to the next game. Better Business Bureau serving San Diego, Orange and Imperial Counties is urging all basketball fans to be smartwhen buying tickets and travel deals when following their favorite teams on the road to the 2014 NCAA Championship.
Remember, using a credit card is always a good idea. If the tickets don't come through, at least fans have the possibility of recovering money by disputing the charge with their credit card providers. BBB also warns fans to use extreme caution with general buy-and-sell websites such as Craigslist. Con artists posting non-existent tickets on websites may ask for money to be wired to them via Money Gram, and when no tickets come, the customer is out of luck.
If buying travel packages, check out the company with BBB first. Verify your reservations ahead of time so there are no surprises and always check cancellation or refund policies in case something comes up and you can’t go in the end.
