Be careful when buying/selling tickets online
I know this goes without saying, but you need to be careful about who you're dealing with when buying/selling tickets online. Perfect.Murder offers up this recent example of a possible scam:
"I was contacted yesterday by someone who sounded legit initially, offering me 2 tickets to Copenhagen shows (i am asking for tickets for that particular show in the European tour section on your page)..
After a couple of back and forth i grew suspicious until this morning’s final email which i will copy paste below..
When Western Union and Ghana shows up in an email…. alarm bells SHOULD START ringing.
Some fans may not be that wary, hence my email ……
THESE ARE THE EMAILS FROM THE SENDER, WHICH WENT UNDER THE NAME OF: LEXIE NEUMANN EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org
I won't be attending again, let me know if you need it.
It is £80 for the two tickets and I am selling it because of someone who needs the money so if you are ok with the price you send the money to the person and I will post the tickets for you to your address which you will give me.
Yes I have the tickets it is for me, I am selling it for my girlfriend if not I would like to attend, am sorry I can't send it try to understand this is nothing just give me your address and I will post it immediately you send the money to her.
My wife to be is coming to me, I want you to send the money to her she needs it than I do and that is actually the main reason am selling it.
Through western union with
Name: Christogonus Ekwelem
Country: Accra Ghana.
As soon you is done reply me with your address to post it immediately without delay."
