Vancouver, BC: If you are planning on purchasing tickets on Craigslist for the Drake concert this weekend, there is a good chance you will find yourself standing outside the event, unable to get in, and out-of-pocket for the money you spent.
Investigators are finding that last-minute ticket sales on Craigslist have a high probability of being fake or fraudulent. Police get reports of fake and fraudulently purchased tickets at every event in Vancouver. Those who purchase fake tickets online have no idea they are not legitimate, and don’t discover it until they arrive for the concert.
Police do regularly catch individuals who are involved in these crimes, but unfortunately victims are left without tickets or their hard-earned cash.
