Buyer beware when it comes to buying tickets for the Big Game

The Game is scheduled for November 26…fans of Ohio State and that team up north already have the teams’ matchup circled on their calendars. But according to Attorney General Mike DeWine, fans wanting tickets to the big game need to be wary of scams. Ohio consumers have reported losing hundreds of dollars to scams while trying to buy tickets for Ohio State football games, Cleveland Cavaliers games, concerts and other popular events, DeWine said. They usually involve third-party individual sellers who are not associated with an event. They advertise on Craigslist, other websites or even in person. Scam artists generally instruct consumers to pay using wire transfer, cash, prepaid money cards or other forms of payment that are difficult to trace. The buyer usually ends up with nothing at all, or tickets that are counterfeit, stolen or otherwise invalid.
