RCMP warn of Grey Cup ticket scam
RCMP warns of online Grey Cup ticket fraud
The RCMP has a warning for people looking to buy Grey Cup tickets: fraudsters are taking advantage of the high demand for tickets to the big game in Regina between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
While there are still plenty of Grey Cup tickets for sale online, RCMP are warning buyers to beware of potential scams and make sure any tickets they do purchase are real.
RCMP in Saskatchewan say scammers are surfacing online in advance of Sunday's big game. In some cases, the fraudsters offer tickets online, ask for a money transfer, but never send the buyer tickets.
RCMP say other scammers complete a transaction with an online buyer, only to mail out counterfeit tickets. The best way to avoid getting scammed is to buy your tickets directly from the CFL or Saskatchewan Roughriders website.
People who believe they have been a victim of a Grey Cup ticket scam are asked to contact police.
