Brilliant, ethical ticket resale website Scarlett Mist has been forced to close down by fraudsters selling fake tickets.
The website matched ticket sellers with eager gig-goers and stipulated that tickets must be resold at face value.
Website owners Richard and Olly said: “We have run the site as a free service because it represents something we believe in – that music fans should be able to trade spare tickets with one another without touts muscling in on the act.”
They said: “We have been looking at ways of bringing you a similar service with better levels of protection, but until we can manage this in a cost-effective way then we cannot continue to operate the site. We would be keen to hear from any individuals or organisations that would be interested in getting involved.
