Consumers have plenty of reasons to want to buy tickets for events, with the NFL well underway, holiday shows right around the corner and not to mention plenty of fall concerts. But that also means more opportunities for scammers.�
The internet gives consumers so many options to buy big tickets that it's no only important to find the best deal, but to find a legitimate seller or re-seller who won't leave you on the outside looking in.�
No matter where you buy your tickets, the National Consumers League recommends buying them with a credit card. That will give you the best protections against possible unfair or unauthorized charges.�
So, how can you be sure you're buying from a legitimate source?
The NCL recommends �that you buy tickets from sites that guarantee those tickets, and will replace or refund them if you get the wrong tickets, get invalid tickets or if an event is cancelled.�
The Better Business Bureau also says to search the ticket location ahead of time. Find out where your section, row and seat number are. Then you won't be disappointed by an obstructed view or worse, a seat that doesn't even exist.�
