Casper’s Ford Wyoming Center Issues New Important Scam Warning
You can find a lot of great things on Google. Research information, an old high school buddy, the latest sports scores, and directions to a new restaurant. One of the things you shouldn't be looking for on Google, is a ticket to a concert or other upcoming event.
In the digital age that we live in, there are lots of people just looking to make money off of your name, likeness and personal information. There are many websites that offer products that may interest you, but all they are doing is scamming you.
One problem that's been going around for quite a while is ticket scalping websites buying up concert, sporting or other event tickets and re-selling them and ripping off consumers.
The scalping of tickets causes so many issues for those going to the events.
- Inflated Prices
- Restricted Access
- Money Loss
In the last few years, Musical Artists have run into problems with scalpers and have tried their best to shutdown the opportunity for their fans to get scammed, by not allowing third party companies to buy tickets and re-sell them at a higher price.
The Ford Wyoming Center in Casper has issued a warning to those buying tickets to events at the venue trying to help prevent them from being scammed. Especially those concertgoers that go to Google to purchase tickets.:
Don't search Google to find tickets for our events as the top results are usually scalping sites. Always go to Ticketmaster.com to purchase tickets. You can also call or visit the Sinclair Box Office at the Ford Wyoming Center Wednesday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm.
The issue of ticket scalping has gotten so bad that companies like Ticketmaster have gone to Congress to get help.
Concerts, sporting events and other event are supposed to be enjoyable and you shouldn't have added stress or financial burden from them. Be careful where you're buying your tickets.
