How to Get in Touch with the Ticketmaster Fraud Department
Scoring a ticket to the next big concert or your favorite sporting event can be a thrill. Unfortunately, the excitement diminishes quickly when you find out your ticket is fake.
Ticketmaster offers verified and secure tickets to worldwide events, but occasionally, fraud occurs, and you will need to contact the for assistance.
It is not always easy to verify that you were the victim of Ticketmaster fraud, which is where DoNotPay comes in. We have developed an automated system that takes the frustration out of filing a claim for a refund of your hard-earned money.
How To Tell If Tickets Are Fake
The only way to make sure a ticket is 100% authentic is to purchase it directly from the Ticketmaster official website. The problem is that fees are so exorbitant, people sometimes choose to seek tickets from outside sources.
If you decide to use a third-party ticket reseller, make sure you:
- Only purchase a ticket from a trusted and secure website. Many scammers will recreate a fraudulent site to make it look real, when in fact, it is designed to steal your money.
- Before making the purchase, verify how the ticket will be sent to you once payment is received.
- Do not post a picture of the barcode associated with the ticket on social media. Scammers will grab the code, rendering your ticket useless.
- Verify that the information on the ticket is accurate. Many counterfeit tickets will include event details that don't exist.
How to Avoid Being Scammed by Fake Tickets
Ticketmaster offers several suggestions to its customers to avoid falling victim to fraudulent ticket scams:
- NEVER buy a ticket on Craigslist that claims it is from Ticketmaster, since the ticket seller never uses this site to offer legitimate tickets.
- NEVER wire money to someone that claims to have a ticket.
- NEVER use a third-party gift card to pay for tickets sold online. Only use accepted payment methods for the purchase.
The only way to prevent fraud is to buy a ticket from an official source. Ticketmaster advises consumers to make sure they are purchasing from the official website (@ticketmaster.com) and not a fraudulent domain.
How to Contact Ticketmaster Fraud Department If You've Been Scammed
Ticketmaster customers are currently experiencing longer than usual wait times as the live event industry slowly starts to make a comeback.
Fan Support via email is available Monday through Sunday from 9 am to 9 pm ET. If you have a question outside of those hours, your only recourse is to check the FAQ for further assistance.
The Ticketmaster website states, "We take fraud very seriously and thoroughly review every claim brought to our attention. If you suspect fraud on your Ticketmaster or Live Nation account, contact us." Unfortunately, the Ticketmaster Fraud Department contact link is broken. This leaves you endlessly searching for ways to contact a customer service representative to report fraudulent activity.
What to Do If You've Been Scammed
If you purchase a ticket online and think it may be fake, you can go to the Will Call window at the venue and ask them to verify the ticket's authenticity.

You Receive a Fraudulent Email
If you receive a "suspicious-looking" email, Ticketmaster recommends that you forward it to them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
They recommend not interacting with the links or attachments and suggest never replying to the email, which is most likely fraudulent. You will probably not get a response, but it will help Ticketmaster track the email to prevent further fraudulent activity from the sender.
