Consumers asked to be wary of ticket fraud during holidays

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (AP) - State officials are asking consumers to be wary of fraudulent ticket purchasing during the upcoming holiday season.

With numerous big games, concerts and other events coming up, they say consumers will be looking for discount tickets, and many will turn to ticket brokers and the ticket resale market.

But the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance's Division of Consumer Affairs says there's a risk of being scammed when purchasing tickets from secondary markets, and the agency is offering tips to avoid that.

One suggestion is to use the official ticket sales agent for the venue. Another is to check out the seller or broker by looking them up on the Better Business Bureau to learn what other customers have experienced.
