On Thursday, May 9, 2019, the Boston Bruins will take on the Carolina Hurricanes for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston. The Boston Police would like to take this opportunity to remind fans to be wary of purchasing counterfeit tickets to the big game. Fans who purchase tickets from a second or third party source are taking a chance, therefore, we encourage fans to only buy tickets from authorized ticket agencies. Purchasing from other sources, like online and social media sites such as Craigslist and Reddit, is done at the buyer’s own 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 and monetary loss.

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).

Be safe, enjoy the game, and GO B’s!
