EAST Lancashire Beyonce fans who may have become victims of ticket fraud are being urged to come forward.

Detectives from British Transport Police are investigating more than 100 cases of fake tickets sold before one of the pop star’s concerts at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester.

Det Con Mike Dermody said: “It seems that someone has been selling fake tickets to concert goers who only realise the tickets aren’t genuine when they get to the venue.

“We believe there have been more than 140 sets of fake tickets sold, though only seven victims have come forward so far.

“In most cases the tickets have sold for at least £100 each and each victim has bought at least two tickets, so we are potentially looking at a fraud worth more than £28,000.”

Anybody with information should call Action Fraud on 0300 1232040 or BTP on 0800 405040 quoting log NWA/B5 of February 28. Those who may have become victims of ticket fraud are being urged to come forward.
