WTOL Investigates: Online ticket scalpers - Don't let it happen to you

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - We've got a Call 11 for Action Alert.

Many of us like to go to concerts or ball games from time to time, but if you're not careful - you might end up paying too much for tickets.

A woman from Sylvania called us about tickets she purchased to this week's Stevie Nicks concert. She thought she was on the Huntington Center website - but she was actually on a secondary web-site.

"I'm a very moral person. and I think that this is basically on-line scalping - and it should be illegal. basically I feel lied to, cheated, and like they've stolen my money," she said.

We'll show you how we got her money back and also explain why this is something everyone needs to worry about. If you buy tickets from the wrong place - you'll end up overpaying - and you might not even get the tickets you order.

Coming up tonight at 5 on WTOL and wtol.com
