Watch out for Fake Saints Tickets this Weekend
The Louisiana Attorney General has issued a warning to all New Orleans fans hoping to score some last minute seats to see their Saints take on the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship game this Sunday. With the cheapest tickets available on Ticketmaster's website clocking in at $305 each (at last check), some members of the "Who Dat Nation," might be desperate to save a few bucks on these coveted tickets.
If you are thinking that you could find someone out side the Mercedes-Benz Superdome selling a spare pair - beware. According to WDSU, Louisiana AG Jeff Landry is concerned you might the victim of a scam, so he shared a few tips to avoid getting ripped off. Landry says to beware of prices that seem too good to be true (basically anything below face value), also be wary of these valuable tickets for sale on sites like Craigslist. Instead, opt for verified and well known sources like Ticketmaster or StubHub.
He also recommends that folks who already have the tickets refrain from posting pictures of them online. Counterfeiters can steal the bar code from your picture and churn out lots of real-looking fakes.
