The guys from Bangor's Comic and Toy Con are getting ready for their big convention hitting the city Friday, April 22nd through Sunday, April 24th. Unfortunately, it looks like scammers are taking advantage of this much-anticipated convention in the Queen City.

A Facebook post from Bangor Comic & Toy Con on Thursday has informed fans wanting to get their geek on that scammers are out to sell tickets to their event.

The Bangor Comicon Resale Scam

The post states that people on social media are saying tickets are available for 'resale' in which physical tickets are already had for the event and want to sell these physical tickets.

The promoters are warning the public that there are no physical tickets for the event and those that are offering this are scamming ticket buyers or are bots trying to get your attention.

The promoters state 'do not buy tickets' as well as 'don't attempt to buy tickets' from those stating they have physical tickets to sell.
