Yet another one with no company details

This one though does give you three addresses, one in Spain, one in Ireland and one in Holland

The bad news is they are all Regus office addresses, virtual offices that are simply used as mailing addresses

There are two telephone numbers, both UK based

Or so they appear to be

Both are VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) numbers

That means they can be answered anywhere in the world

Someone has gone to great lengths to prevent you from finding out who the real owners and operators of this site are

If they are an honest, legitimate business why are they so coy about who and where they really are?

Interestingly enough, when you look at buying Reading Festival tickets from them it appears the main stage has moved

To the Kohl Centre, Madison, Wisconsin!

When I google "globalticketshop.com" I get a website directing me to other websites (getmein, seatwave, etc). Is this actually directing me to fake sites?

I can't believe how many different types of scams there are - what sort of minds think these things up? The thing is that these people are not stupid and if they would only channel their energy and obvious intelligence to something legal they'd probably make a small fortune anyway.

Just edited this to "Globalticketmarket.com"

Full listing imminent
"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."
