Regardless of whether the Panthers or the Broncos raise the Lombardi Trophy following Super Bowl 50, don’t let the bad guys win by selling you fake tickets to the biggest football game this Sunday. You don’t have to be from Denver or Charlotte to be the target of a Super Bowl scam.
Think Before you Purchase
Hopefully, most fans have heard about and learn from previous big games ticket scams on Craiglist.org or other websites. If you’re a super fan with blue and orange dyed hair or even dressed up in your best black and blue panther costume, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) recommends that you get your tickets from “the official NFL Ticket Exchange by Ticketmaster” at http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/50.

Good luck to your team and enjoy the game!
