Grey Cup Tickets

The hottest ticket in the province this week has fraudsters taking advantage.

There are still plenty of Grey Cup tickets for sale online, but RCMP are warning buyers to beware of potential scams and make sure any tickets they do purchase are real.

RCMP in North Battleford and Saskatoon 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.
