Beware of Ticket Scams

Home » Newsroom » Beware of Ticket Scams

Fraudsters regularly offer tickets for music festivals and popular sporting events scheduled for the summer. The tickets are generally offered for sale in the spring time and as the official tickets are sometimes not released until weeks before the event, potential victims don't realise they have been deceived for some time after parting with their hard earned money. The internet is the most common place where this occurs; on platforms such as bogus websites, online auction sites and via social media.

Protect yourself:
Purchase tickets from an official agent, box office or reputable ticket exchange website.
Be cautions of making advance payments via bank transfer, money transfer or e-money vouchers.
Remember paying by credit card or via PayPal offers the consumer greater protection should you be a victim of fraud.
Conduct some simple online research on the seller or website if you are considering making a purchase. Negative feedback can appear very quickly if something is not quite right.
If the ticket price is below market value and the tickets are in high demand consider whether this is too good to be true.
