AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - The Auburn Police Division is urging the public to beware of fraudulent ticket sales for Auburn University Men's Basketball games.

According to police, there is a potential increase in the number of fraudulent tickets that may be distributed by re-sellers. There are also some dishonest ticket hawkers that may attempt to buy tickets with counterfeit money.

The Auburn University Ticket Office, the opposing team's ticket office, and StubHub are the only officially recognized ticket outlets.

Police say tickets purchased from any other outlet or person is done at the buyer's own risk.

The City of Auburn does license ticket scalpers that operate in the city, however, this does not validate the authenticity of the tickets being sold.

The Auburn University Ticket Office is the only authority to validate ticket authenticity.
