Police Warn of Fraudulent Playoff and Whiteout Tickets Being Sold

Tuesday, April 18, 2023 - Winnipeg Police are warning the public of reports of fake playoff tickets and Whiteout street party tickets being sold.

Police have received reports of Winnipeg Jets hockey playoff tickets and “Winnipeg Whiteout” street party tickets fraudulently being sold via online advertising platforms. Victims have reported after sending money to the unknown sellers, they did not receive the promised tickets and were “ghosted” by the fraudulent sellers.

Police are telling people to beware when purchasing tickets using online classified platforms. True North Sports and Entertainment has confirmed that “Winnipeg Whiteout” party tickets are now SOLD OUT for Games 3 & 4.

Street party tickets sold on any other online platform, including resale platforms, are unverifiable and should be considered fraudulent.

Tickets for any future street parties will only be sold through Ticketmaster.

If you have been victimized similarly, please make an online police report.

Please note: If you report a telephone, letter or internet scam but do not suffer any financial loss, there is no need to file a report with the Winnipeg Police Service. Contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 to report.
