Did Alex Baldwin Get Scammed When He Tried to Visit the Statue of Liberty?

Playing How Alec Baldwin’s Family Got Scammed Trying to See Statue of Liberty

Alec Baldwin is fuming after he says he was tricked into buying tickets to cruise around the Statue of Liberty, only to be directed to a bus to New Jersey.

Baldwin says the incident happened when he took his wife, Hilaria, and their kids for a trip to see the landmark. But he wasn't aware that there's only one company in downtown Manhattan that is authorized to sell tickets to Liberty Island. 

Instead, Baldwin says, he purchased his tickets from another ticket seller hanging around the area, in what he says turned out to be a scam. 

He posted the tickets on Instagram, which he bought for $40 apiece. They read, "See NY from the water ... free shuttle included."

They may seem legit, but Baldwin says he was escorted to a shuttle bus to New Jersey. 

"This is a scam!" he declared. 

Had the Baldwins gone online, they would have seen the company ⁠— Tours R Us ⁠— gets scathing reviews. 

Inside Edition sent our investigative team undercover to see how they operate. Watch the video above to see what happened. 

Fortunately for the Baldwins, their trip wasn't a total bust. They ended up taking the Staten Island Ferry to see the Statue of Liberty, which is completely free.
