OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The Warriors third straight finals appearance is generating a lot of excitement, but also strong warnings about counterfeit tickets and merchandise.
The Warriors issued a fraud alert Tuesday about fake tickets for sale on third party websites like Craigslist.
At every game during the regular season, an average of 40 fans arrived at the gate t find that their tickets were fake and they could not get in.
During the Finals the team expects even more fans to arrive with high-priced phony tickets.
That has led to heartbreak in the past.
