Patriots’ fans are being warned by Rhode Island’s Attorney General to look out for ticket scams.
“With the division championship taking place on home turf, these are the hottest tickets in town right now. The chance to watch the Patriots and the Ravens battle it out in an AFC championship rematch is one many New England fans don’t want to miss. However, we are warning Patriots fans: don’t let your enthusiasm for the game cloud your judgment. Whenever there is a demand, scam artists will try to take advantage,” says Peter Kilmartin in a written statement.
Before meeting a stranger in a dark parking lot to hand over your hard-earned cash, Kilmartin gives some tips to keep in mind:
If you believe you are a victim of consumer fraud, please contact the Consumer Protection Unit at the Department of Rhode Island Attorney General at (401) 274-4400.
