We have been alerted that secretmusic.co.uk has closed, there is some sort of 'refunds form' on the home page now, we have now been alerted about www.ec1tickets.co.uk.

The registrant of this site is one Oliver Francis the man behind secretmusic. The fact that the same person closes one site and opens another is a very strong indication of trouble ahead.

There are no proper contact details on the site which is registered to what appears to be a false London address - 152-160
london, EC1V 2DW.

We advise our readers to avoid this site and to let others know.

I was scammed by secret music, and now I've looked into ec1 tickets, and it seems that site is down too. This guy may be wise to this forum.

PEOPLE PLEASE BE EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS WHEN BUYNG TICKETS, DON'T MAKE MY MISTAKE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE HIGHLY SKILLED AT WHAT THEY DO, I LOST £280 TO SECRET MUSIC, THEY SEEMED 100%GENUINE, EVEN SENDING ME TICKETMASTER CONFIRMATION....DO NOT BE FOOLED,!

''Oliver Francis'' also emailed me claiming, my initial £280 had been wrongfully taken by an employee, therefore I needed to pay an additional £280 (which would be refunded by themselves) via a site called epic vouchers.co.uk.

This is just my experience so epicvouchers may just be an innocent party, but if i'd have paid epicvouchers via PayPal I would receive 10% off a value that was to be refunded anyway??? ALARM BELLS.

I did not pay this, to which they obliged to pay on my behalf, for tickets that didn't even exist!

How generous of them.
