Wisconsin fans told to shop smart for Final Four tickets

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, Wis. (KWWL) -

The Wisconsin Badgers advanced to the NCAA Tournament Final Four next weekend and officials in Wisconsin are telling fans to shop smart if they plan on attending the games in Indianapolis.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is asking fans to buy tickets from businesses or people they know and trust.

Demand for Final Four tickets is huge, and scammers know fans are willing to pay anything for a ticket,” said Sandy Chalmers, DATCP Assistant Deputy Secretary. “If you're buying from a reseller, make sure policies on refunds or cancellations are clearly stated and are acceptable to you.”

They say fraudulent ticket offers often appear on websites like Craigslist and in other classified advertisements.

They advise people to avoid any too-good-to-be-true offers and any requests to pay by wire transfer or pre-paid debit card.
