Top Tips for Spotting a dodgy ticket website
- Check on a sporting event’s website to see whether it has official sellers. If it does, only buy from them
- Look at reviews across a number of sources that aggregate customer feedback, such as Feefo, Trustpilot or sitejabber. It is important you don’t rely on just one source and instead look at several to minimise the risk of fake reviews.
- Does the company have a regularly updated social media presence? It’s increasingly rare to find a legitimate company that neglects this
- There should be a padlock symbol in your browser bar when you attempt to log in or register. When paying, check that the website uses https:// at the start of its url
