A Portland woman who thought she was buying tickets for a Blazers playoff game at the Moda Center soon realized she was the victim of an online scam.

Holli Wilson contacted a woman she shares mutual friends with on Facebook Monday night after noticing she was selling tickets to a Trail Blazers game.

The woman said she would sell her two tickets to next Monday's game for $200, then asked Holli to buy a gift card from Fred Meyer to pay for them.

Wilson bought the gift cards and sent the woman the numbers on the card, but when she contacted the woman on Tuesday, she blocked Wilson on Facebook.

"I was mad, but I mean it's more like I was disappointed that someone would do that."

Wilson said this was going to be her first time going to a Blazers game and said she now knows to be more careful in the future.
