BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - The Virginia Tech vs #14 Notre Dame football game has been sold out more than a week, but VT Police and the university are now warning of ticket scams ahead of the big game.

VT Police announced early Friday it was aware of “several instances of fraud involving the sale of Virginia Tech Football Tickets via Facebook.”

The police and university are now sharing some safe practices for fans who might be trying to still lock down tickets before Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. kickoff. Some of those tips include researching the person you’re buying from, checking the date of when the account was created, checking mutual friends and seeing the person’s ties to VT.

“All we want to make sure is that we inform and warn all of our fans who might be looking for that last-minute ticket, for that last-minute opportunity to get in, is to be cautious and to be very careful who you turn to,” said university spokesperson Mark Owczarski.

It’s also important to note the parking situation around the school Saturday. The university announced Friday afternoon that all RV lots on campus were full. It said there are public spaces for RVs on a first come, first serve basis Saturday.
