wants to join the crusade of snitching on and ratting out tickets scams for this summers usual big scale events. Already the world is full of people who has received emails, phone calls or just turned up and been refused at the door.
Last year saw an unprecedented amount of festival-goers scamed into buying ‘ghost’ tickets which were never delivered without anywhere to claim a refund. Telltale ghost ticket hallmarks can be anonymous domain registrations and a huge neglect of any contact details online. This years offended gigs seem to be Reading and Leeds, T In The Park and the V-Festival.
Exitetickets.com are just one among many site that need to be shunned this year, and its not only festival tickets that are being sold un-officially. Beware of phony tickets for expensive one-off shows including, Take That, Madonna, Beyonce and others. The top three most effective ways of acting on your ticket problems can be to:
- Contact your bank or credit card company. If you paid on credit card you should still be able to get a refund if you act within a few weeks. Some debit cards also offer limited fraud protection.
- Report the matter to the Police, once you have a crime reference number complain to consumer direct on: 08454 04 05 06
- If its too late for any of the above but you still have your fake confirmation email, forward it to email@example.com and you may be compensated your money back. Then sign up with them!
Coincidently, exciteticket.com has magically closed down all of a sudden and nobody returns your calls. (but you are 2nd in the que and your call is important to us, bloody promise!) The company was however registered to a buisness park in, Pencoed, Mid Glam, and its director is a man named Mahmood Zahid, 31, and lives in a flat above a KFC in Hounslow.
