Be Scalper Wary
Friday, September 5, 2014 - 01:37 Updated 47 weeks ago From a News Release by WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey
Both West Virginia University and Marshall University have policies in place forbidding the scalping of tickets on university property. According to the policy, those found scalping tickets will be asked to leave university property. Fans need to double check tickets to make sure they are not falling prey to fake tickets or a scam.
“Too-good-to-be-true tickets deals are, unfortunately, usually just that,” Morrisey said. “Do your homework before purchasing tickets so you can enjoy the game without any hassle or concerns.”
Ticket scams can be reported to the university holding the event, and consumers also can call the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-368-8808, or file a consumer complaint online at www.ago.wv.gov.
