The actor posted about their experience with scam ticket sellers in their attempts to secure a boat trip to the American Monument, proving that even celebrities are not exempted from scammers.

TWO SHARP, SAVVY NYERS ALMOST ENDED UP ON A SHUTTLE BUS

In his Instagram post, the actor shared a photo of the scam ticket he and his family bought. The $40 ticket was from a company called "Tours R Us," and the ticket had a background photo of the Statue of Liberty on it. It also had the caption "See NY from The Water," as well as the departure times for the trip.

In the caption to the post, Alec Baldwin described how he and his wife (he labeled them as two sharp, savvy NYERS), along with their kids, bought the tickets for the boat tour of the monument.

They are, however, escorted to a shuttle bus headed to New Jersey, something that bemused them. He then continued, saying that they paid for the ticket, and then read its contents, only to find out that no one mentioned anything about New Jersey.

He then concluded by stating that it was a scam, before warning his followers to take the SI Ferry, which was the best ride in New York.

To that end, the Department of Transportation, The Economic Development Commission, and The New York Police Department have stepped up the clampdown on the fraudsters and would be sending out cease and desist letters to illegal transport operators.
