Trading Standards Information and Advice: 2012 Olympics

Trading Standards are concerned about the possibility of people being scammed by illegitimate companies or websites claiming to be selling tickets for the 2012 Olympics.

There are a number of unofficial websites claiming to sell tickets, we therefore advise people to be extremely cautious and vigilant when attempting to buy tickets and only purchase from an official source.

The following websites are the latest to be reported to LOCOG, the organising committee as being fake or unauthorised ticket outlets for the London 2012 Games; www.london-olympics-tickets.org.uk www.euroteam.info www.worldticketshop.com www.olympicticket.info www.edusport.co.za www.globaleventforum.com www.euroteamtickets.com www.freetickets.org.uk/entertainment/sports-tickets/london-2012-olympics-tickets www.britainolympics2012.co.uk www.ticketcity.com www.london-2012-games.com/2012-olympics-tickets,

Please DO NOT buy London 2012 tickets from any of these sites.

This is not an exhaustive list of unofficial or fraudulent sites, so always use caution online. If in doubt there is a url checker on the London 2012 website which will identify official sources: www.london2012.com/about-this-website/ticketing-website-checker.php
