How it works:
- With the rise of p2p online marketplaces (e.g. Facebook, Carousell), there has been a rising trend of fake tickets sold online, or of sellers who disappear after receiving payment.
- These include tickets for tourist attractions (e.g. USS) and tickets for sold out concerts and events (e.g. JJ Lin concert, BTS concert, etc).
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Red flags (online platforms): really cheap prices; not doing meet-ups; claiming to be from a certain company; sending a picture of their ID to “prove” their legitimacy.
- Buy: direct from company/official counters, licensed retailers or day tour platforms like Klook (best in Asia) with many bestselling tickets (e.g. Universal Studios, S.E.A. Aquarium, Gardens by the Bay, etc).
