The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers to be careful when buying tickets for events this summer.

They say scammers will usually pop up in online auction sites, classified ads and with ticket dealers.

Last year, the Better Business Bureau received more than 800 complaints concerning event tickets from May to September alone.

The most common problem was that consumers would pay for tickets that never arrived.

The Better Business Bureau says there are a few things you can do to keep from falling for a scam.

Make sure to look for the better business bureau seal on websites for online brokers, use a credit card or PayPal account when you make your purchase and be sure to keep a record of information given to you by the seller.
