Buyer Beware! Boston Police Warn of Counterfeit Tickets

The New England Patriots will host the Indianapolis Colts in the National Football League’s AFC Championship Game on Sunday January 18, 2015. The Boston Police would like to take this opportunity to remind fans to be wary of purchasing counterfeit tickets. Fans who purchase tickets from a secondary source are taking a chance. We would like to encourage fans to only buy tickets from authorized ticket agencies. Purchasing from other sources is done at the buyer’s risk. Officers want to proactively curb such activity and encourage buyers to only purchase from official vendors. Purchasing via other means, creates the potential for possessing either an invalid or counterfeit ticket. 

If any community members have information about the selling of counterfeit tickets, you are urged to contact Boston Police. Individuals wishing to provide information anonymously may do so by calling the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS or texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463). Individuals wishing to provide information anonymously are reminded that the Boston Police Department is ONLY interested in the INFORMATION you provide, NOT who YOU are.
