'Festival ticket scammers' arrested

Post by Baz on Thu Nov 27, 2008 6:47 am

Five people have been arrested in London for allegedly taking part in a ticketing scam that left thousands fans without tickets they had paid for.

It is alleged that Xclusive Tickets Ltd and Xclusive Leisure and Hospitality Ltd took payment for tickets for events, including UK music festivals and the Beijing Olympic Games.

According to the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) over 4,000 fans were allegedly scammed.

The Metropolitan Police raided homes and a business on Tuesday night (November 25), arresting four men and a woman in relation to the alleged crimes. They were released on bail after questioning, reports BBC 6music.

The SFO are asking any people who bought tickets from the companies but never received them to contact them at www.sfo.gov.uk
