Victims of Super Bowl ticket brokers’ empty promises encouraged to file complaints

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Dealing with a heartbreaking Super Bowl loss is bad enough. But there have also been reports of fans buying tickets from brokers, only to find out the brokers did not even have the tickets they purported to sell. Not only were these fans unable to attend the game, but they were also out hundreds — if not thousands — of dollars for the cost of airfare and accommodations.

Attorney General Bob Ferguson reminds Seahawks fans that if this happened to them, they should contact the Attorney General’s Office and file a complaint.

To file a consumer complaint, visit and click the “Consumer Complaint” button, or call 1-800-551-4636 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
