We've seen an increase in scams when it comes to concert and other types of tickets for performances and shows in recent years. It seems like every time there is a major show in Western New York there are reports of people 'purchasing' tickets that turn out to be worthless or that they never receive.

The Upstate New York Better Business Bureau warns against concert ticket scams.

The BBB received over 2,000 complaints nationally concerning event ticket sales and ticket brokers in 2014. The Western New York Better Business Bureau has advice for those looking to buy concert tickets online to make sure you are not a victim. 

Make sure you keep these things in mind if you purchase tickets for a show this year.

For over 100 years, BBB has helped people make smarter decision, setting standards for ethical business behavior and monitors compliance, helping consumers identify trustworthy businesses and coaching businesses on ethical behavior.
