Beware Of Inaugural Ticket Scams

It seems that the scams have begun for scalpers and counterfeiters of the tickets to the upcoming Inauguration.

I recently received an e-mail from a company claiming to have tickets to both the swearing-in and parade and the Gala Balls.

The fact is that tickets to the Oath of Office and Parade are free!  However, you can only obtain them from your Congressperson or Senator and, if you don’t have them by now, you probably can’t get them.  Some of the State Associations may have tickets to the State Balls and various parties but if you think you might get a glimpse of the First Family my guess is that unless you have already received your personal invitation, you’re out of luck.

BEWARE of scammers.  They’ll take your money and you’ll still be left out in the cold.

I want to witness history, too.  I’ll be doing it from the comfort of a warm home in front of a TV where I can see things close up.
