Heads up, Spurs fans.
“Spurs fans, you guys need to be wary out there,” SAPD’s Doug Greene said. “Be alert that people are out there trying to take advantage of people.”
That online seller might be selling you phony tickets to the games and take your hard earned money right out of your hand, before you know it.
“Our best suggestion is to purchase your tickets from a reliable source,” Greene said. “No strangers, someone that you can trust.”
Two victims have already reported to SAPD that they were duped.
Both told police that they met a seller, one said he was from Craigslist, at a downtown hotel, each purchased the tickets from the same man, but “once they got down there to the box office at the AT&T Center, they were not verified as valid tickets,” Greene told KTSA News.
Two reports of fake tickets already, Police think it’s the same seller…and the playoffs are about two weeks away.
Police suggest, if you are buying tickets from an online seller, ask them to meet you at the box office, that’s a good way to find out if they’re fake or not.
