WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

The Wichita Falls Police Department is warning residents about third party ticket scams. 

The WFPD's Financial Crimes Unit said when purchasing tickets to special events and recreational parks online make sure you are using reputable websites.

Officials said the old adage, "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is," is always a good reminder.

Buyers should beware of purchasing tickets from a third party and not an officials vendor.

Tickets could be fraudulent. If you do purchase from a third party, officials said to remember that physical tickets are better than digital ones. 

Fraudulent digital tickets and codes can be easily reproduced. Never give access to your personal financial account information to a seller. 

If you plan to purchase tickets in person make sure you meet in a public place and bring a friend with you.
