OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The College World Series is a time for food, fun, friends, tailgating, and baseball. Some people attending the event, however, have different ideas.

With thousands of visitors in Omaha for the event, the Women's Fund of Omaha is asking people to be on the lookout for signs of human trafficking. Last year, the Women's Fund partnered with Omaha Police and elected officials to create the "Not on my Watch" campaign. Some of the signs to watch out for are dramatic changes in behavior, persistent fear, depression, or anxiety. If you see any of these signs, notify a police officer.

And the Better Business Bureau is cautioning fans about where they buy their tickets. The BBB warns that some sellers on the secondary ticket websites may be fraudulent. The most common scams are sending counterfeit tickets, or simply not sending the buyer the tickets after taking your money. Ticket scalping is also very common during the Series.
