So you want tickets to that big game or concert, but they're already sold out. What do you do? You turn to the internet.
But how do you know who to trust and where to get the best deal? Mike Peduto has brokered tickets for 30 years. He knows there are scammers out there taking some of his business. He wants people to remember to do their research and steer clear of any site that demands payment by wire transfer or avoids speaking directly with you.
He said, "Unfortunately, sometimes those sites are set up where they're hoping you get all the way to the end. You put all your information in and you won't leave because you've done all that work." He continued, "If you can't reach them, especially by phone, that's pretty much a give-away that they're not going to have the same level of customer service as somebody local."
Mike says that prices typically come down as you get closer to the event, so if you only need two tickets waiting until the last minute can sometimes be the best way to go.
