With the NCAA tournament starting tonight and with Michigan and Michigan State in it you may want to attend, but beware of ticket scams. These ticket scams usually go around every year as fans of their favorite school want to see them in the tournament and with all of the games in neutral sites scammers come out of the woodwork to make some money.

Here are some things to make sure you do so you don't get scammed or can at least get your money back if you get scammed. First DO RESEARCH, make sure the site or place you getting tickets from are safe and reliable. To really make sure you probably will want to by you tickets from the official vendor of tickets, which is NCAA.com/tickets. Also if you are buying tickets make sure to buy them with a credit card that way if you do get scammed or never get your tickets you have a record and can get the money back maybe. Also don't believe in discounted tickets as most tickets that are discounted aren't real, this is one of the biggest sporting events of the year. So don't expect venues to give these tickets out for nothing, as most venues of the big tournament bid to have games played years in advance so they aren't wanting to give tickets away for nothing.
