Police Warn Over Fake TAKE THAT Tickets!

By on 29 October, 2010

Police have issued a warning to TAKE THAT fans urging them not to purchase tickets for the British boyband’s upcoming tour unless they are sold through official vendors. Even though most may have experienced technical difficulties, the trick is to keep trying and to have a little patience. See what I did there? 🙂

The Back for Good hitmakers announced plans for their first full tour together in 15 years earlier this week and authorities have already found scam websites selling fake passes. Fans eagerly anticipating the shows are being warned not to be duped by illegal sellers offering counterfeit tickets.

Detective Inspector Sean Crotty, of the Metropolitan Police Economic and Specialist Crime Command, says:

“There are huge numbers of Take That fans who will be desperate to get hold of tickets for these concerts.

“However, buying tickets from unofficial websites or agencies could result in them losing money, having their credit cards details compromised and ultimately losing out on the opportunity to see the band.”

You may not have heard, but in August this year a conman narrowly escaped a prison sentence after pleading guilty to targeting hundreds of Take That fans in an online ticket scam. Jason Debney was charged with fraud after selling more than £8,000 worth of tickets on auction website eBay.com.

You’ve been warned!
