Play it Safe When Looking for Texas Tech Baseball Super Regional Tickets

As Texas Tech men’s baseball is approaching its best-of-three Super Regional series, your Better Business Bureau advises fans to be cautious of tickets being sold online through secondary ticket websites.


There are a few tips to protect yourself from getting scammed when trying to purchase a secondary ticket:

When buying from a merchant, always check with the BBB to be sure that you’re dealing with a company that has a good reputation for satisfying customers and a secure website for processing your payment.

When buying from an individual through an online exchange don’t be lured away from the website by the seller. Even if you met the seller on the exchange website, the company may not guarantee any lost money if a transaction occurs outside their domain.

If you buy tickets through an online auction, choose a seller with a long, continuous history of satisfied customers. Scammers can hijack old accounts, so make sure they have recently bought or sold other items.

Pay with a credit card or through PayPal, which offer some protection and potential reimbursement. Never pay with a cashier’s check or wire money to a seller; you’ll have no way to get your money back if the tickets do not arrive.

Many sellers will include pictures of the tickets with their posts on auction sites or bulletin boards. Scrutinize the tickets closely for any inaccuracies or alterations, and cross-check the seat assignment with the map on the venue’s Web site before you buy.
