PHOENIX, Ariz. (KPNX) Looking for Super Bowl tickets?
Experts warn that fakes are out there.
Some are so convincing that even ticket brokers get scammed.
Ticket Lobster owner William Furniss says there are a few key ways to spot a fake ticket.
“When they take a copy and perforate it, you will see the actual black marks in the copy from where they use a razor blade to cut the ticket, and you’ll know that’s a copy,” he explains.
Furniss says if you are meeting someone ask for their ID and take a picture of their driver’s license. Meet them at the bank and allow them to cash the check under their own name with their form of id so there is a paper trail. Make a hand written contract and take a picture of it with the id and also get a license plate number.
