BLCeventickets.com has recently appeared on the net and started offering tickets for everything except the second coming

Domain name: blceventtickets.com 

Registrant Contact: 
   BLC Event Management SL 
   Clare Brigg () 
   
   Fax: 
   URBA Santa Maria Village 11 
   Marbella, Malaga 29604 
   ES


The address given is on a golf course in Marbella


The last time a ticket site was registered to a golf course was SOSmasterticket that took hundreds of peoples money and delivered nothing

Blceventtickets.com is only registered for a year

Caveat emptor! (Let the buyer beware!)

Strong warning to avoid

BLCeventickets.com is now texting people offering Take That tickets for sale

Funny as they are not on sale to the public until Friday

They have now put up a virtual office address at:

4th Floor 100 New Bond Street
London W1S 1SP

This website has no allocation of tickets and should be avoided

OK ask your bank for the details of how the money was taken out

There is usually a name and a merchant service number on the transaction

If you do get the information on exactly how the money was taken out, please send it to me in a message on here please

Hi Mark - how do you know so much about this company?  And what are you able to do once you have the information about what was taken out of your account?  I've done the same today.  Got caught up in the moment I'm afraid and bought 2 lots of 6 tickets Confused but after reading the threads on here am getting increasingly concerned!  I have phoned my bank but they said I can't do anything until the money has been taken out.  Would appreciate your feedback as you seem to have done your research on them!

Thanks

Laura

I have also just brought tickets from this company. Bank has also told me that they cant do anything until the money has gone & tickets don't turn up - I called BLC and spoke to a very harrassed lady who said my paymenthad been authroised and I would need to speak to the account department - surprise! but I cant get back through to the company. I guess its a case of trying agian tomorrow when the Take That hype has calmed down or wait it out until next year to see if the tickets arrive! ;-(

lollylu, the information I have posted about BLC is available to anyone, it is all in the public domain

First thing I did was contacted the promoters of the TakeThat shows and asked them if BLC had an allocation of tickets

The answer was an emphatic no

Then look at the trading history of the company, run a credit check on it

Then start looking at the phone numbers etc and the addresses they are using

Physically check out the addresses where possible

As for the information on who processed the payments, I'd be inclined to contact them and make them aware that the site is taking payments for tickets it doesn't have

There will be more dates announced for the Take That tour and I suspect there will be plenty of tickets available in the coming weeks

mark...how do u know these are scammers....and that they only are registered for a year....how do we find out this info for ourselves....have rang the company severall times and have got thru every time and they were adamant that they were reputable and we would recieve our tickets....no one so far has said they hadnt recieved tickets they paid for from this company...they said all tickets would be sent out in line with the other ticket companies.7 to 10 days before concert....no different from what official ticket companies do aswell...

Hi Clairebell222

This is what we try to do, to bring you this kind of information about the websites so you don't have to. That's what our Ticket Safe Directory is for.
"You should never have to pay over the face value of tickets. If you do you are contributing to the increasing industry of bulk buying tickets just to sell them to you for an immediate profit. It is only by starving these people of sales that we can truly retaliate against them. Your strongest weapon is to accept that sometimes you just can't get tickets to an event."

Markland knows what he is talking about here. This is certainly NOT a legitimate site authorised to sell Take That tickets.
