LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Lexington police are investigating an alleged scam after a UK fan reported she was sold phony tickets to Tuesday’s men’s basketball game.

According to a police report, the woman went to the game, but was turned away and told she had been duped.

Investigators said there have been several complaints about the same scam on social media sites.

Officials at the UK athletic department said fans should buy tickets through the ticket office or on Ticketmaster.
