MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery Police Department is warning those looking to go to the 2018 Alabama National Fair of scammers who are looking to take them for a not-so-fun ride.

MPD investigators say they've gotten reports of scammers soliciting the sale of discounted tickets to the Alabama National Fair.

The fair does not solicit ticket sales on social media or by telephone, so if you get a call or see a post, think twice.

Ticket purchases are only available through TicketMaster or the Garret Coliseum box office.

The fair runs from Sept. 28 through Oct. 8. 2018 will mark the fair's 64th year in Montgomery. ?
