It’s Tourney Time again, which means many fans are faithfully watching their favorite teams, checking out team merchandise and may even be considering tickets to watch their favorite teams play. Countless scammers are aware of March Madness’ appeal though, so may be looking for opportunities to target die-hard fans. The Tri-State BBB® provides some tips to protect your March Madness purchases:

1. If you are considering tickets, research the ticket site or seller before you make your purchase. Learn up front if there are any buyer protections, such as money back guarantees if tickets are fake, and learn how to contact the seller after the sale. If you’re buying online, consider asking for a picture of the tickets, to confirm the tickets match the venue and be wary of extreme discount offers.
