Robbie Williams fans sold down the river by Sell Out World

Ticket buyers subjected to more disappointment, no tickets, fake tickets, no concert, dodgy meetings...

Increasing concerns are coming to light about Sell Out World, it appears that Sell Out World are doing just that - selling fans right down the river.

Ticket buyers have bought well in advance for the Robbie Williams tour and the tickets they have ordered have not materialised.

Some fans have spent weeks trying to contact Sell Out World only to be fobbed off with the phrase 'your tickets will be with you…' in the event many have discovered that their tickets have not arrived. Constant emails and phone calls have gone unanswered and those that have got a response have reported being told to 'meet a man' to collect their tickets before the gig. One buyer has reported being told to meet a man at McDonalds, then a Premier Inn and finally at a 'Chinese Restaurant', others have reported being given the tickets at the venue only to discover that they were fake and didn't admit them to the gig. Ticket buyers have reported that they have felt intimidated and concerned when they have met a rep from Sell Out World. No legitimate ticket outlet would arrange to meet a customer in this manner.

Ticket buyers have also discovered that even if they did get into the gig they had paid well over the odds for very poor tickets, a very common concern when buying from the secondary market. A number of fans have resorted to buying more tickets from other sources in order to get to the gig so paying over the odds twice.

Reports from ticket buyers themselves strongly suggest that speculative ticketing is behind this, speculative ticketing happens when people sell you a ticket that they don't have and rely on 'getting hold of one' in time for the event, when they don't get hold of the tickets in time for the event the ticket purchaser won't get their ticket.

We've always taken a harsh stand on secondary ticketing at Safeconcerts for the very reasons that are being highlighted by the problems being reported by customers of Sell Out World, our advice has always been to buy your ticket from legitimate, primary ticket sites only.

If you want to be sure you'll get to your chosen gig buy your tickets from an authorised, primary and legitimate source only, the risks of buying from the secondary market have been well documented and these reports are just one example of why you need to buy your ticket from a reputable, legitimate source only.

If you have been caught out please take a few minutes to report them to Action Fraud, all details of what you need to do can be found here.

Great accurate account of how Sell Out World operates and what to expect. Alas, I speak from personal experience of using them! In short for anyone who is tempted to use this company-DON'T!. I can't make it any clearer than that. Still tempted to use them? Then read all the feedback comments on here under the Sell out world 'thread'. It will take you a while as there are many but they should stop any leftover temptations you may have.
