Olympic scams and official sites

Posted: Updated:

The Olympics are not exempt from scams. The games are actually a huge target. The best thing for you to do to avoid becoming a victim:


  • Shop directly from the official website of the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

  • Verify the website is authorized to sell before you buy, especially if you are buying tickets.

  • If the price seems too good to be true, chances are it is.

  • Always deal with reputable travel agencies, hotels, and car rental companies.

  • Confirm all reservations. Do not sign anything until you know for a fact what was said is included in the agreement.
