How it works:
- In 2015, a website shop-groupon dot com exploited its seeming association with the site groupon dot com and sold fake discounted tickets to tourist attractions online.
- Besides paying for fakes, victims also had their credit card information stolen.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Only buy direct from company/official counters or licensed retailers.
- Alternatively, online day tour platforms like GetYourGuide (leading globally) has many bestselling tickets (e.g. Ripley’s Aquarium, Niagara SkyWheel, etc).
