New York Comic Con wants to completely stop Badge fraud and we need your superpowers to do it! Counterfeit Badges hurt everyone: our paying Fans, our exhibitors, our Guests and our feelings. Counterfeit Badges lead to bigger crowds and unsafe conditions, leaving Fans stranded outside of NYCC when their fake Badges are discovered and causes longer lines throughout NYCC as Badges must be closely inspected to sniff out the fakes. Plus, anyone selling counterfeit Badges is committing a crime and may be subject to prosecution, fines and jail time.
We have secret agents all over NYCC and we are aware of many instances of counterfeit ticketing and are working hard to keep it from happening. We also know that there are even more fakes out there that we don’t know about and that new evil plots are being devised daily. Unlock your inner superhero and help us stop ticket fraud and protect your NYCC experience!
Remember, the only way to guarantee that your Badge is not counterfeit is to purchase it directly from the NYCC website or from a trusted NYCC retailer.
