How it works:
- Version 1: many cases of fake tickets being sold for highly popular events which tend to sell out (e.g. past concerts for Bruno Mars, Pink, etc).
- Version 2: there have also been cases where the ticket sold is legitimate. However, the seller still attends the event and enters first, preventing the buyer from entering next.
- Version 3: paying a premium for a VIP seat, but only getting a lower quality seat in return.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- Only buy from official retailers and not streets touts or unofficial sellers.
