WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- The Super Bowl kicks off in the Big Easy, this weekend. 

But the Better Business Bureau says beware of buying tickets to the big game in New Orleans online. 

Tickets listed on Craig's List offer no guarantees and the seller is not required to provide their identity.

The BBB suggests sites like Stub Hub and Ticketmaster.

And that way, your tickets are guaranteed to be authentic.

The Better Business Bureau also offers the following tips to avoid Super Bowl scams.

Don't take an offer that sounds too good to be true.  Tickets, especially last minute tickets, are going to be expensive.

If the salesperson or website is using overly pushy sales or tactics or offers products that are low in quality, then it's likely to be a scam.

Never perform a wire transfer.  Once the transfer is made, it is impossible to recoup your money or to trace the funds.

And, only make purchases from legitimate sites.  Most of the item, tickets and products won't be cheap, but you know you are dealing with a trustworthy vendor.
