Scam Alert: Online Ticket Fraudsters Target Bon Jovi , Michael Buble And Stone Roses Fans

As with all big tour announcements, the vultures are out and preparing to scam unsuspecting music fans with no exception made for the recently announced Bon Jovi tour, Michael Buble London O2 residency and The Stone Roses summer concerts.

ImageStereoboard.com has identified a highly suspicious looking website, www.selloutworld.com, which has been advertising heavily on Google today and targeting music fans to part with their hard earned cash.

Springing up out of nowhere, selloutworld.com registered on September 29th 2012 and is operating behind an address in Poland.

Should you choose to buy from this website, chances are you will find yourself trying to get an answer on where your tickets are right up to days before the gigs, before realising you've been scammed.

The website Sell Out World .com, isn’t the only suspected scam site in operation of course, there are many around. Other scam sites may surface over the coming days and weeks, as ticket fraudsters take advantage of the demand for big events (The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Michael Buble, The Stone Roses, Girls Aloud, Mumford And Sons) going on sale before Christmas and taking place in 2013.

Stereoboard advises to only buy tickets from official outlets, such as Ticketline, See Tickets, Gigantic and Ticketmaster. When tickets for a show are sold out we advise you compare and purchase tickets with the trusted and guaranteed exchange sites that we work with such as Viagogo, Seatwave and GetMeIn.

All other sites are either brokers, speculators (selling tickets they do not have possession of), or fraudsters. Stereoboard.com runs a black-list of scam websites to help music fans avoid being ripped off. The ticket scam black-list can be viewed at www.stereoboard.com/ticket-scams.

In February 2011, Stereoboard produced a viral video to warn fans against disreputable tout ticket sellers. ‘Access All Areas’, which has received over 30,000 views so far, follows the fate of a group of music fans who opt to go ‘off road’ obtaining their tickets unofficially, to blag their way backstage at a major gig. They ultimately get left out in the cold in the video. The film can we viewed at www.youtube.com/StereoboardTV or you can of course view the video below.
