TICKET PURCHASING SCAM USING

DIRECT MESSAGING

There is a new trend for fraudsters to try to make you pay for tickets using Direct Messaging.

You should be cautious of anyone offering tickets for sale on social media who then ask you to go to direct messaging to carry out the purchase.

It works in such a way that once you make the payment for the ticket they will block you from their system, and you lose your money completely.
