Last year, police arrested several people who were caught selling fake tickets on the street for games three and four of the NBA Finals.

Your best defense? Do your research.

When purchasing tickets through an online broker, look for the BBB Accredited Business seal on its website and check its BBB Business Profile and BBB rating at bbb.org.

BBB also provides customer reviews and customer complaint details.

Be cautious of emails or social media postings claiming to have free tickets or unbelievable deals.

If you buy tickets through an online site, choose a seller with a long history of satisfied customers.

Deceptive ticket resellers can also mimic the websites of genuine box offices and event venues. Check the spelling of the URL to make sure you are on the site you think you’re on.
