Quad City Storm Warns of Online Ticketing Scam
As the Quad City storm look to put 8 thru the gate, it looks more and more like it's going to happen. However, with a potential sell out game it is possible that people who really need tickets or that waited last minute may look for other means to purchase tickets. If you are purchasing tickets online, look out for scams.
Here is the press release from the Quad City Storm:
The Quad City Storm Hockey team reminded members of the community to be wary of online ticketing offers and scams ahead of Saturday’s inaugural season opener.
There were several reports of online purchase scams involving the opening night game on October 20. In most cases, fans received the tickets but were charged excessive service and handling fees. Fans are advised to visit QuadCityStorm.com and purchases tickets directly through the linked Ticketmaster page to ensure quality and safety. From now until December 1st, the team is giving back to the community by waiving all Ticketmaster fees for fans purchasing tickets online.
President Gwen Tombergs said, “We want to make sure none of our fans fall victim to these online ticketing scams.” “We encourage everyone to order online through QuadCityStorm.com to not only annoying third party fees but also avoid waiting in long lines on opening night!”
“We are anticipating an extremely large crowd on Saturday night and we want this to be a fun night for our fans,” Tristan Tapscott, Director of Fan Experience, said. “We encourage everyone to order tickets online to help us create a rock star pre-game experience.”
