Badgers Fans Beware: Rose Bowl Ticket Scams

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011 at 7:29 am

Wisconsin consumer protection officials are warning football fans to watch out for Rose Bowl ticket scams.

State officials say buying tickets from classified ads or online increases the chances the tickets could be fake. Fans are being advised to purchase tickets from sources the University of Wisconsin-Madison or the National Association of Ticket Brokers have endorsed.

People should ask ticket sellers to email or fax a copy of the tickets so the date, time, and seat location can be confirmed.

Paying by credit card offers the most protection for consumers, but fans should never give out their numbers unless they have initiated the contact.

The Wisconsin Badgers defeated Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game to earn another trip to Pasadena. The Badgers will face the Oregon Ducks on Jan. 2.
