GREEN BAY - The state Department of Agirulture, Trade and ConsumerProtection’s Bureau of Consumer Protection offers severaltips to avoid becoming a Green Bay Packers ticket fraud victim:
- Ask the seller to fax you a copy of the actual tickets before paying any money or giving a credit card number.
- Do not give out your credit card number on the phone unless you’re sure the seller is legitimate. Contact the Bureau of Consumer Protection to determine if complaints have been filed against the business and check the business with the Better Business Bureau.
- Use a credit card rather than a check or debit card if you purchase tickets since it may provide some protection if you don’t receive the tickets.
- Try to deal with "official" sources for tickets such as those endorsed by the team or those that are members of the National Association of Ticket Brokers. These businesses carefully screen ticket offers and take other measures to protect consumers from ticket fraud.
- Verify that any travel agent with whom you are dealing is a member of a recognized trade association such as the American Society of Travel Agents.
- Do not get on a plane without having official game tickets in hand.
