Los Angeles police were warning people today about crooks selling bogus tickets for Monday's Stanley Cup final between the Kings and New Jersey Devils. Some tickets are selling for up to $2,000.
Los Angeles police Lt. Paul Vernon said some counterfeit tickets were being offered on the streets around Staples Center for about $500 but often sold for about $200, giving buyers the impression they got a good deal. But the tickets turned out to be fakes, and buyers were not let inside, he said.
``Caveat emptor, let the buyer beware, is a good motto to follow in such purchases,'' Vernon said. ``If the deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.''
Police did not say how many people had been defrauded so far.
