BBB warns of Hornets ticket scams

- The Charlotte Hornets are bringing the Heat back to the Queen City. 

Another game in town, means another chance for counterfeiters to trick you out of your money.

The Better Business Bureau says if you are hoping to see the Hornets in action the best bet is to buy ticket online from a reputable vendor.

Tom Bartholomy, President and CEO of the BBB Southern Piedmont, says if you are buying tickets on the street  be sure to know what the playoff tickets look like ahead of time.

He also recommends snapping a picture of the ticket seller.

Bartholomy suggests staying close to the arena when buying a ticket and says the closer you are to the arena, the less likely it is that you will buy a fake ticket.

The Charlotte Hornets will play against the Miami Heat in game 6 at Time Warner Cable Arena starting at 8 p.m. Friday night.
