6/13 Scam Alert: Be Wary of Summer Concert Scammers

Posted on 06/12/18


Concerts are especially popular during summer months. As a result, scammers have found a way to use this to their advantage. Make sure to always buy your tickets from a reputable source!  Be on the lookout for any ticket sellers that tell a sad story about why they can’t use their tickets, can only accept cash, want you to wire the money or transfer through a prepaid account, or who pressure you to act quickly.  Report any suspicious sellers to local law enforcement.

Be a fraud fighter!  If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.  

Contact local law enforcement or the AARP Fraud Watch Network at or 1-877-908-3360 to report a scam or for more information on scam and fraud prevention.
