BBB warns of scams on tckets for the Panthers’ Monday night game

Monday night’s NFL game against the New England Patriots is possibly the biggest home game the Carolina Panthers have played since their last post-season appearance in 2009.

That means ticket prices are up to $1000 and even higher.

The Better Business Bureau of the Southern Piedmont wants to help fans buy legitimate tickets for the game.

BBB Southern Piedmont President Tom Bartholomy says it’s still possible to purchase tickets online today and tomorrow.

However, Bartholomy recommends that you make sure you’re buying the ticket on a reputable web site.

“Two of them that are the most prominent are TicketsNow and StubHub, also Razor Gator, all sites that have been accredited by BBB that have guarantees that if you buy the tickets through them and get to the gate and they’re not good that you’ll get your money back,” Bartholomy said.Freddie Hammer |

The Better Business Bureau also urges ticket buyers to be very careful buying tickets on the street before the game or from a local seller they don’t know.
