Some Auburn fans used fake tickets for the Georgia game earlier this month.

Many Auburn fans bought, tried to use fraudulent tickets for Georgia game

The Auburn Athletics Ticket Office released a notice Tuesday that there were several counterfeit tickets presented when Auburn hosted Georgia on Nov. 11.

“For the Georgia game, the Auburn ticket office and law enforcement saw four types of counterfeiting in effect,” the statement said. Those were poorly reproduced hard tickets, seat location fraud, incorrect game and counterfeit money.

Fans attempted to use hard tickets that were reproduced with inferior paper and incorrect advertisements on the back. Fans also attempted to use tickets with photoshopped incorrect seat numbers.

Scalpers also sold tickets for past or future games and bought tickets from fans with counterfeit money.

While the Auburn ticket office encouraged fans to only buy tickets from the school’s official ticket office, ReplyBuy and StubHub, it also asked patrons to be cautious when buying tickets from secondary sources for the Iron Bowl against Alabama on Saturday, also hosted by Auburn at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
