CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — With the Carolina Panthers still unbeaten and facing a Monday night game against the Indianapolis Colts, the Better Business Bureau wants fans to keep an eye out for fake tickets and merchandise.
The Charlotte Observer reports (http://bit.ly/1PPhx9D) the BBB is telling fans they should pay a little more money and buy their tickets from reputable online brokers who have money-back guarantees.
BBB president Tom Bartholomy said fans are more likely to be scammed if they buy tickets on the street before the game or through online classifieds that do not have a money-back guarantee.
The BBB also urges fans to buy merchandise from the official team store at Bank of America Stadium and authorized retailers. It says merchandise sold on street corners and in parking lots is most likely counterfeit.
