How it works:
- Version 1: there are criminal organizations which buy tickets of major events to flip for a few times more through other channels.
- Version 2: sometimes, fake tickets are peddled as well.
Places to beware:
- Anywhere (e.g. Rio Carnival, 2016 Rio Olympics)
What to do:
- Only buy direct from company/official counters or licensed retailers.
- Alternatively, online day tour platforms like GetYourGuide (leading globally) also has many bestselling tickets (e.g. Rio de Janeiro Carnival, Christ the Redeemer Cog ticket, football match in Rio, etc).
