TUCSON- The Better Business Bureau of Southern Arizona is warning about March Madness scams during the NCAA tournament.
Since the University of Arizona could play up to four games of the tournament in Southern California, many die-hard Wildcat fans are sure to make the trip to cheer on the team.
Major sporting events like the NCAA tournament almost always inspire scammers to capitalize on the scarcity of tickets and fans' desire to snap up souvenirs. The BBB advises to check out other offers before spending your hard-earned cash.
The best way to ensure you are getting official sports gear is to buy directly from the team or league websites, from official vendors at the stadium or from other trusted stores.
The BBB's website has a list reputable, second market ticket firms that provide buyer protection. Check it out here.
