King5 News – Looking for concert tickets? Don’t be fooled by online scalpers
Consumers are being fooled into buying tickets from online scalpers posing as the official event venue, often leading them to pay inflated prices for subpar seats.“These are slippery actors,” said Steve DelBianco, executive director of the consumer advocacy group NetChoice. “They will close a website down and open up a new website with new domain names to fool new customers.”
DelBianco said state and federal authorities have the ability to go after unfair and deceptive trade practices.
