Action Fraud shared some tips on how to spot the signs of ticket fraud and protect oneself:

“Only buy tickets from the venue’s box office, official promoter or agent, or a well-known and reputable ticket site.

“Avoid paying for tickets by bank transfer, especially if buying from someone unknown. Credit card or payment services such as PayPal give you a better chance of recovering your money if you become a victim of fraud.
