Warning-Counterfeit Tickets World Series

During the Boston Red Sox World Series, Transit Police would like to remind/warn Red Sox fans to be wary of purchasing counterfeit tickets.  Transit Police have taken reports in the past from victims who have purchased counterfeit tickets from secondary sources. Oftentimes the "seller" will arrange to meet the buyer at various MBTA stations, conduct the sale and quickly vanish within the mass of people utilizing the T.  By the time the buyer realizes the tickets are counterfeit the "seller" is long gone.  Fans who purchase tickets from a secondary source are taking a RISK. We would like to encourage fans to only buy tickets from authorized ticket agencies. Purchasing from other sources is not recommended. 
Potential ticket buyers should guarantee authenticity by purchasing tickets directly through the Boston Red Sox website at or in person at the Red Sox ticket offices. 
 If you have any information of people selling counterfeit tickets on the MBTA please contact our Criminal Investigation Unit at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous tip via text to 873873. If you have information of people selling counterfeit tickets within the City of Boston please call Boston Police District 4 detectives at 617-343-4683.
