  • When buying One Direction tickets, make sure it's the real deal.

Attention 10-year-olds: Before you steal your parents’ credit card and buy a ticket online to see One Direction play the Concord Pavilion, make sure the show actually exists.

The Sun is reporting myriad phony website scams posted by hucksters who are raking it in by teasing tweens with visions of Harry Styles. Some sites just install spyware on computers when links are opened; others set up scam phone lines; and some are reportedly actually selling fake tickets to shows. What a disgrace!

You are supposed to feel like you’ve been had after you see the crappy concert, not before.
