Bismarck – We’re just a few days away from the biggest weekend in College Basketball.
This weekend is the Final Four, being played at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
And many people from this area will be making the 400-plus mile drive to the Twin Cities hoping to score some cheap tickets to the games.
But you may think you’re getting a great deal, you actually could be getting scammed.
We talked with the Attorney Generals Office and they tell us huge sporting events like the Super Bowl,
World Series and Final Four are prime opportunities for scammers.
“I like to warn consumers about using Craigslist, for buying these kinds of tickets, that’s probably true for anything, Craigslist is a huge source of scams, obviously and so when you see tickets on Craigslist it certainly could be an indication of a scam” Said Parrell Grossman, Director: Attorney General Consumer Protection Division.
He adds the best thing to do is purchase your tickets from a secure website that includes H-T-T-P-S in the address bar.
