MINNEAPOLIS -- The Better Business Bureau reminds everyone that they run the risk of getting thrown for a loss if they decide to gamble on a less then reputable ticket source.

With the Minnesota Vikings home opener finally just around the corner, the Better Business Bureau is warning fans to watch out for "scammers" that might hand off fake tickets.

Dana Badgerow is the President of the BBB and says it's not uncommon to hear about fans who thought they were going to get into the stadium find they've been taken by a scam.

To avoid getting ripped off the BBB recommends, Choose a reputable online ticket broker, apply common sense, be leery of buying from scalpers, and never wire money to someone you don't know.
