Online Buyer Beware Campaign

Remember: if it's too good to be true, it probably is. Don't be afraid to ask questions to verify the legitimacy of the item!






Always meet in a public location that you are comfortable with. We suggest somewhere public, during the daytime, and preferably with video surveillance. If you can, bring a friend or family member!




Be careful purchasing e-tickets from a stranger. You never know if you'll be showing up with the same ticket. Try purchasing through verified sources like Ticketmaster's "Fan-to-Fan Resale".  





E-transferring money is an easy way to pay for your online purchases. But make sure you don't send your money before you get your items!





Trust your gut. If you think something is wrong, ask questions to determine where the item came from, why the seller is selling it, and ask for an original receipt so you can confirm the item isn't stolen property!
