Use the following advice to help protect yourself:

  • Check your event isn’t already sold out and that tickets are officially on sale.

  • Paying for tickets with your credit card protects you under the Consumer Credit Act if you are scammed.

  • Ultimately, the only way to avoid fake tickets is to buy from a reputable ticket exchange site, a ticket box office or an official agent.
