  • Purchase from the venue or trusted vendors -- check the Better Business Bureau database at
  • Consider your source -- is it someone you know and trust or an established ticket broker?
  • Know the refund policy of the vendor or broker
  • Use payment methods that come with protection
  • Be wary of advertisements


As always, if you feel you were a victim, please report immediately to law enforcement.
