Police and event organisers issue advice regarding sales of fake tickets - Belladrum 2015
Issued by Police Scotland - Highlands and Islands Division
Police in the Highlands and Islands are looking to provide guidance to those who are still wishing to purchase tickets for the Belladrum Tartan Heart music festival, following reports of fake tickets on sale via unauthorised sellers.
The organisers of the event have provided information on their website as per the following:
Resale of unwanted e-tickets: There was a resale of unwanted e-tickets on Thursday 4th June at www.skiddle.com. There are no more resales planned.
Transferring unwanted e-tickets: You need to get in touch with Skiddle with the details of your ticket and of the person receiving it. Skiddle will arrange for your ticket to be cancelled and a new one issued in the new holder’s name. A booking fee will be charged.
Tickets bought under the deposit scheme: that were not fully paid by the deadline on June 1st 2015 are now voided and have been resold.
Unwanted printed tickets: should only be resold at their face value via our approved re-seller www.thetickettrust.com. We strongly advise customers not to buy tickets from sellers on auction or social media sites and never to part with funds unless tickets are in the hand and known to be genuine. Tickets resold anywhere other than via The Ticket Trust are sold and acquired in breach of our terms and conditions.
This information can be found on the Belladrum Festival 2015 website (http://www.tartanheartfestival.co.uk/tickets/).
If anyone attempts to enter the venue or is found in possession of a fraudulent ticket, they will be refused entry and may be reported to the police.
If you decide to purchase tickets online or through social media websites, make sure that any transaction is completed in person. Always remember that if a deal looks too good to be true, then it probably is.
