Met police warn of bogus ticket websites
Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service's Operation Podium are warning the public who may have bought tickets for the London Olympic and Paralympic Games from "EUROTEAM" that they could be a victim of crime and may not receive their tickets.
If you have bought tickets from any of the following websites you need to immediately:
- Contact the company you originally tried to buy tickets from;
- Contact your method of payment service provider and draw this matter to their attention:
Detective Superintendent Nick Downing from the Operation Podium team,
"Please check carefully if you have bought tickets from any of these websites, I am seriously concerned that anyone who has bought Olympic or Paralympic tickets will now not receive them. There is an ongoing investigation by the Norwegian Police into the wider activity of this company, and we know that the company have stated that they have not sourced all of the Olympic and Paralympic tickets that they have sold."
The only way to buy tickets for this summer's Games, safely and securely, is via www.london2012.com.
Operation Podium advises that you must confirm you have a ticket before travelling to the Games this summer.
Countries where police think there may be victims include:
- Europe wide
