As the Nationals compete in the World Series, Fairfax County police want people to be careful about where they get their tickets for the games.
“Detectives are investigating an increasing number of online and phone scams involving the sale of World Series tickets,” according to a press release.
The police department has tips for people to avoid scams, including being cautious when buying tickets from sources other than Major League Baseball or authorized dealers.
“Be sure to research the vendor and review their security protocols before providing personal information or payment,” FCPD noted.
Anyone who wants to report a scam can file a report online with the Financial Crimes Section or call 703-691-2131.
