JACKSON, Miss. – If you plan on going to the Egg Bowl, but have not purchased a ticket yet, make sure what you are buying is the real deal.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Mississippi says it is important for Mississippians to beware of deals that may be too good to be true.
“You really want to look out for the Craig’s List type of sales. People are excited because of how well the teams are doing this year. You’re thinking you get a good deal, you want to make sure that you buy a legitimate ticket and that you actually get it. There are a lot of ticket brokers out there and also a lot of people who pretend to be those ticket brokers trying to scam people. We see that with World Series tickets and super bowl tickets, and for Mississippi this is relatively a new problem,” said John O’Hara CEO for the BBB of Mississippi.
O’Hara says the best way to avoid purchasing a phony ticket is to check the Better Business Bureau website to see if your ticket provider is credible. The website will also let you file complaints and see previous complaints made against ticket providers.
In the event you do get scammed, but sure to contact your local law enforcement.
