In a different thread today Markland suggested emailing everyone you know and telling them about this site. (And maybe asking them to email everyone THEY know?) 
Perhaps we can get the ball rolling.
Wouldn't it be great if everyone automatically checked the red list here before buying tickets on the net?

I have posted on my facebook page to all my friends and have asked them all to repaste for their friends view and so on. I am seeing a few come through already.
Knowing how quick facebook catches on to these things Id be hopefull that this will circualte very quickly - probaly quicker than e mail
I have also since contacted OFT via Consumer direct so can safely say that I have done everything in my power to create awareness about this so called company, just waiting on my refund!!!
I think it will only be a matter of time before they are either shut down, caught or move on to another name!!
Heres HOPING!!

Great news troops, my credit card company are refunding me following the BLC Events Usher ticket scam and following my complaint into Action Fraud, I have since spoken with Surrey Police unit who are investigating this company..........lets hope that the net is closing in on these fraudstaers and an arrest can be made soon!!

Ok guys sorry in advance i' m going to rant !!! So I was told no problem i' ll get a refund from my bank after been ripped of by Blc event for 350 for Usher tickets .Today however my bank says they can't help as I left it to long to tell them about the problem,however I contacted my bank the minute my tickets didn't turn up the bank then told me I had to wait until the day of the concert before I could send the complaint into them,which I did with all the emails ect from Blc telling my I wasn't going to get me tickets . I paid by visa debit card , has anyone else had any luck in getting a refund? Can anyone help ? Also how are Blcevent still operating ? They are still selling tickets online for every event possible how can this be? Sorry to rant but I'm so angry !!!

hi Kay123

Sorry to hear that you also have been scammed too......I have jusy been notifed by my credit card company that I am being refunded but also had to send evidence of the purchase and comms includng crime reference number etc to the bank to get the refund...took time but they wll refund if enough pressure and postion is clear!!

As for the little scroats who are doing this. i reported it into Action Fraud as soon as the tickets failed to emerge after reading lots of FAB advice through ths site

I have since been contacted by Surrey Police who have taken a statement of events ...............and from many other UK/ROI victms too!!

Medusa is right .....enough people reporting ths creates both awareness to others to avoid (with a barge pole) and triggers investigations in a bid to catch and close down these unlawful operations ......................

My guess is they will be caught and dealt with accordingly. Good luck in your plight to get your refund!

How i wished that i had found your website sooner. I paid over 900 to these 'people' for 4 V Festival tickets this morning for my daughter and her friends, I thought it was strange but as i am waiting for TT tickets that were bought for a christmas present for me from these 'people' I thought it was a legit site, I even called the guy that had managed to buy them for me and he said no i got a conformation email from them and have spoken to them....... I got straight on the phone to my bank who were fantastic and gave me the number to the fraud dept and as the money hasn't left my account they have cancelled my card so they can't get the money from today, can't believe that i was so stupid, alarm bells should have rung when it came up in euros. Suppose i'm lucky in someways because they won't get the 900 from this morning but they have still had 200 for TT tickets that won't arrive

I get the feeling after reading all the posts on here, that maybe they saw a easy option to make money as they knew lots of people would be trying for tickets. Grrrrrr

I just can't believe that after so many people reported them to Action Fraud etc., they are still up and running! It makes me wonder exactly what one has to do to get the police to take action.

Have been reading all about BLCevents with interest. Am wondering if there is anybody out there having problems with Justin Bieber tickets? I have been having a nightmare, concert is tomorrow and still no tickets! Have now had an email similar to others posted asking me to phon a rep when I arrive in Birmingham to arrange pick up. Needless to say there was no answer! Luckily I have managed to get 2 last minute tickets via GETMEIN which i am to pick up from box office. Seems much more legit? will be getting in touch with my bank, luckily I used VISA to pay for them.

Hi Aberdeen 1.  Yes we used blc events for our bieber tickets.  They contacted us 2 weeks ago saying that a ticket collection was possible but would let us know.  I phoned them up on wednesday as we had not heard a thing.  I was told that i would receive an email thursday afternoon with ticket reps details.  NO EMAIL CAME.  Last night wife and i began to panic as could not get through to them and I began reading forums saying they were a scam.  We frantically searched for tickets last night spending 5 hours but luckily purchased some.  My wife and daughter left this morning.  About ten minutes ago i received an email from blc with rep details.  2 hours before the bloody concert starts.  If they are a legit company they suck big time!  I have contacted my credit card company who are refunding me and I reported them to the fraud office.  If you wish to contact them here are the details i have just recieved James 07954260966.  Hope this helps:)

Thanks for that. Got same email late yesterday afternoon. Called his bluff and phoned asking if i was talking to Kevin and he said yes! I then gave him a false name and he confirmed he had 2 front row tickets for me! Obviously all rubbish. Have picked up legit tickets from box office and will contact police and bank when i get home.
