Beware bogus concert tickets often sold online through sites like Craigslist, reported Teresa Woodard of WFAA-TV, Dallas - Fort Worth. Buy from businesses or sites with guarantees, and be leery of sympathy pitches, said Dallas BBB.
One woman who ended up with counterfeit tickets to a Taylor Swift concert said the seller "told me her mother had just been diagnosed with cancer, and she wouldn't be able to go." The buyer handed over $650 in cash for the bogus tickets.
Better Business Bureau suggests only purchasing from websites or businesses that offer money-back guarantees. Beware of people who use sympathy pitches — like claiming a family member got sick — because they are often tugging at victims' heartstrings.
