Hello everyone,

We have been contacted by Rachel Dunachie who is working on a campaign run by the City of London Police. This is what she said:

"Have you ever been a victim of ticket fraud?

In June, a new national awareness campaign is being launched by Action Fraud - the UK’s national fraud and cyber crime reporting centre run by the City of London Police.

Working with The Society of Ticketing Agents and Retailers, the campaign will highlight the risks of booking tickets for live events with unauthorised sites and provide tips on how to keep yourself safe.

We are looking for people who are willing to talk to the media about their experience to help us raise awareness of how easy it is to fall victim and prevent others from going through the misery of ticket fraud.

We are looking for people who match the following profile:

A person (any age) who has booked tickets for live music or sports-related events that either didn’t arrive or turned out to be fake. We are keen to speak to people who used a web-site or advert on social media that turned out to be bogus rather than an established secondary ticketing site like Viagogo. Any police investigation needs to have been completed to avoid jeopardizing any ongoing case."

You can contact Rachel at

We don't have any more details about this and this thread won’t necessarily be monitored, so do please contact Rachel directly with any queries or if you're interested in taking part.
