The Broncos say only tickets fans got through outlets associated with the team, like the Sports Authority Field at Mile High Ticket office and Ticketmaster/Ticket Exchange, are able to be fully validated.

The Broncos and the Denver Police Department say if you see tickets for a very low price, you should be very suspicious. Many tickets, especially to a high-profile game like this weekend's game with the New England Patriots, can go for as high as $1,000.

The best tip is that before you part ways with your money, think about who you're buying from because you may end up with nothing.

"Look for reputable sources, whether it be from the Broncos themselves, or a legitimate ticket broker, or something of that nature, where you can go back. But physically meeting a guy in a dark alley is not the best advice," Sonny Jackson, spokesman for the Denver Police Department, said. "Often times you have people who are selling tickets that are counterfeit, bogus, or are not legit, and you're not going to get in the game."

Denver Police is working with the Broncos to curb scalping and counterfeit tickets - especially as the Broncos continue to win and demand for tickets goes up.
