BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Attorney General Jeff Landry is warning New Orleans Saints fans to be cautious when trying to buy tickets to Sunday’s NFC Championship game.

The Louisiana Republican on Wednesday released tips for the hot Superdome ticket.

Landry suggests ticket buyers should beware of prices that seem too good to be true, like someone offering a ticket for below face value. He recommends sticking with well-known ticket brokers and avoiding sites like Craigslist, where the ticket likely can't be verified.

The attorney general urges checking to see if the ticket seller belongs to the National Association of Ticket Brokers or has a guarantee policy.

And he warns against posting pictures of tickets on social media before arriving at the game, saying scalpers can steal the barcodes from photos and create counterfeit tickets.
