You may have Cardinal fever, but if you get scammed looking for tickets to the next game in St. Louis, you may become hot under the collar as well. The counterfeit ticket market is hotter than ever because of the always-improving technology available to consumers, according to Better Business Bureau Investigator Bill Smith.
If purchasing tickets on line, Smith advises you to ask lots of questions and be wary of an offer that requires wiring money. When you send money by wire, it is almost impossible to get it back or to trace the recipient, who may be overseas. Also, ask the seller where he or she is located and how he or she may be contacted after the sale. If the seller is evasive, don’t pursue the offer.
