CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCN) – Scammers are looking to take advantage of the Carolina Panthers first 6-0 start in franchise history.

The Better Business Bureau is urging Panther fans to lookout for fake tickets and merchandise.

The BBB says to stick with reputable ticket dealers online and Panther gear from authorized retailers.

The Omega Sports in North Hills is an authorized dealer of Carolina Panthers gear.

Manager Todd Shields said to take a good look at the gear before buying.

“As a consumer, I would probably look at the garment, the seams, look at the logos. Is it exact? Is the snitching good? Is it centered?” Shields said.

Shields also said while it may costs a few extra bucks, official merchandise is better quality.
