We have received reports of on-line tickets scams targeting those keen to attend upcoming concerts, festivals, and sporting events.
Kent Trading Standards is warning people to be wary of 'tickets' on offer on rogue, yet apparently genuine, websites especially when the event is to be likely to be sold out. With internet purchases knowing who you are dealing with is vital so before even considering a purchase, check the site's credentials as it should give the name and address of the business running it.
 
Putting the name of the purported agency into an internet search engine will usually flag up any comments made about this particular business, but no news is not necessarily good news as it could be a new site. Be particularly careful with .co.uk internet addresses as it is not a guarantee that the people running the site are based in the UK.
 
Advice is to stick to the promoters or reputable ticket agencies for ticket purchases as well as information about availability and validity. If you have any concerns concerning a website then you can contact Trading Standards via Consumer Direct on 08454 04 05 06 for advice.
