Tickets to a major festival or event will likely sell out quickly. With this in mind, it’s important to be cautious when buying events or festival tickets from third parties, either physically or online. The following tips should guide you when purchasing a ticket to an event.
Keep Off Tickets Sold Outside the Venue
While in most cases you may land a legit ticket outside the venue at a reasonable price, it’s advisable that you keep off these streets since scammers often take advantage of people who are willing to pay any amount of money to get into an event. If you desperately need the ticket, buy online or from a physical store where you can take back the ticket and get a refund in case something goes wrong.
Be Suspicious of Sellers Who Insist on Cash
A genuine ticket seller will always encourage customers to purchase event tickets through secure modes of payments, such as credit cards. Scammers will always want to be paid in cash so that there is little or no money traces.
Inspect the Ticket
Nowadays, it’s easy to inspect a ticket since most tickets have a QR scan code through which you can confirm the ticket details.
