Be cautious when buying tickets for future UK basketball games until the alleged ticket scammer is caught. Police are investigating the scam after several people came forward claiming they were sold fraudulent tickets, rumored to be from a former UK basketball player. The scammed Kentucky basketball fans didn’t know their tickets were fake until they were turned down at the gate trying to enter Rupp Arena.
It’s best to buy tickets through the UK ticket office or Ticketmaster until the matter is resolved. If you absolutely have to go through a third party seller, make sure they aren’t associated with any former Cats.
In related news, selling fake tickets is one of the dumber crimes one could attempt. It’s hard to imagine a scenario where you wouldn’t get caught.
