LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The Better Business Bureau says it's not too early to beware of two scams connected to the Super Bowl.
One of those scams is counterfeit memorabilia. The BBB says such items are often cheaply made and amount to theft of team names and logos. People across the country have also told the BBB that some websites selling such goods don't even have them to sell. Such sites only want access to customers' credit card numbers and other personal information to steal their identities or drain their bank accounts.
The other scam the BBB is warning of involves Super Bowl tickets. It says thousands of tickets will be listed online by dishonest sellers. It warns against going after offers that sound "too good to be true," or that use "pushy" sales tactics. The BBB also says you should not accept offers that require wire transfer of money.
It says go to sites such as Ticketmaster and Stub Hub and keep in mind that last-minute tickets will be expensive.
It also suggests checking out any business at www.bbb.org.
