Fraudsters Hijack Led Zeppelin Concert

Dinah Greek writes on ComputerAct!ve:

The huge demand for tickets to the Led Zeppelin reunion concert has spawned a series of scams, Computeractive has discovered.

Among the genuine auctions for spare tickets to a range of events on Ebay are a number of traders who are selling non-existent tickets for thousands of pounds.

Harvey Goldsmith, rock promoter and organiser of the Led Zeppelin concert, told us: "The public are being criminally defrauded. We have written to Ebay to make it clear that there are fraudulent offers and the company has ignored us... It is about time organisations such as Ebay confront the issues and behave responsibly."

The web site for tickets received over a BILLION hits in less than a week, with 25 million attempting to register. This demand for Led Zeppelin is unprecedented in music history. When you have such a limited supply (18,000 tickets), there is going to be inevitable frustration and opportunity for fraud.
