Authorities are warning Oregon Ducks fans to be especially careful when buying tickets to the national championship game because of scams.
Ticket prices are already climbing toward $2,000 online and the tickets haven’t even been distributed yet.
Craigslist has a warning posted about a man from London who claims to be selling tickets to the game.
“A big red flag is when it turns out the person you’re dealing with is oversees. That’s almost always going to be a scammer,” explained Tony Green, with the Oregon Attorney General’s office.
Other important tips – never agree to wire money to the seller. Try to always pay with a credit card because most credit card companies will pay a person back if they’re the victim of a scam. Also, authorities warn that people buying anything online should never give out their personal information because they could get ripped off.
