Please beware of those who are selling concert tickets online, especially via Facebook.

Several of my friends have been cheated after they tried to do online purchases for certain concert tickets, allegedly being sold cheaper.

Never buy anything online unless you have personally met the person and seen the items.

In the latest incident, three people claimed they were cheated of RM3,900 for tickets to Cantopop King Jacky Cheung’s A Classic Tour Concert.

These complaints come after a 26-year-old consultant reported that he paid RM2,800 for four tickets online.

In the latest cases, two of the victims said they transacted with “Adam and Sean” over Facebook but after transferring money to a bank account for their purchase they did not receive their tickets.

Another victim, a housewife known as Chan, said she did not receive her tickets after transferring RM2,200 to an online seller.

When she could not contact the seller, she went to the police.

Tickets to Cheung’s concert on Jan 26 and 27 have sold out, with many fans queuing overnight to buy them when they first went on sale.

These scammers normally surface when the concert is a sell out and fans are eager to get tickets.

Rather you miss the concert than miss it and lose money also.
