With a demand for Stanley Cup playoff tickets at fever pitch in Vancouver, fans are being warned to be on the lookout for unscrupulous sellers trying to make a profit for viewing events at Rogers Arena.

The $10 tickets, which get you entry to the family-friendly road game viewing party at the Vancouver stadium, have become so coveted they are being resold.

Proceeds go to support the Canucks for Kids Fund but many tickets to the party are selling for $60 to $80 online.

Kingsley Bailey, a ticket broker for Vancouver Ticket Service, says his agency isn't re-selling viewing party tickets.

"That's a little bit of a problem for me," he said. "We draw the line there."

The games in Boston have also been hot sellers even though some tickets are now worth well over $1,000.

"Prices aren't stopping people," Bailey said. "This is a historical moment [and] people want to be there."

Joellen Ferrer of the fan resale site StubHub said the agency has seen high demand for the next two games in Boston, including a high contingency of travelling fans from all over Canada, particularly in B.C. and Ontario.

StubHub says 31 percent of its buyers for away games 3 and 4 are Canadians.

Normally, travelling fans supporting visiting teams make up between five to 10 percent on the website.

"We only saw about two percent of the buyers for the first two games in Vancouver were coming from New England states so definitely a very strong difference in the travelling support from the Bruins fans and Canucks fans," she said.

Fans are paying an average of $725 for Games 3 and 4 in Boston, Ferrer said, adding that fans were paying about $575 this time last year for Games 3 and 4 in Philadelphia.

Though the urge to buy resale tickets may be strong, the Better Business Bureau says opportunistic sellers often emerge in times like these, when there are a large number of people competing for a limited quantity of prized tickets.

"Emotions are high. There's a lot of excitement in the air and this is the time the scammers come out," said BBB President Lynda Pasacreta.

The bureau says fans should only shop on secure websites, avoid paying cash and ask to see the paperwork if you're buying from a private seller.

The BBB also recommends looking for reputable ticket firms that provide buyer protections, including money back guarantees on the legitimacy of tickets.
