To avoid the heart ache of so many festival lovers who have fallen prey before you, only purchase your CMF tickets from our official ticket platform, Moshtix !
The scammers we’ve identified early in 2019 are at the dumber end of the scale. They are trying to sell Caloundra Music Festival tickets before they are even onsale. Prior to our first release they are easy to identify, block and delete but they’ll be back. The scammers set up fake accounts and steal identities. They forge emails and e-tickets to make it look like the real deal. But wait there’s more! The super savvy scammers have a new tactic! They buy one ticket (sometimes with their money but mostly with stolen credit cards) then sell it multiple times. They will mostly ask for payment via Paypal so they can’t be tracked.
Don’t waste your hard earned cash on a gamble where the odds are firmly against you.
“Hundreds of Aussies have been scammed by online ticket resellers, after paying inflated prices for tickets that don’t exist.
Last year a Melbourne teenager purchased a $257 ticket to The Book of Mormon on the Viagogo site, but was turned away at the theatre because the ticket was invalid. Just last week, a Perth woman spent more than $1,200 on fake tickets for a Guns N’ Roses concert.
Consumers are being warned to steer clear of these websites and stick to official vendors.” – Emma Mead, Lawyer (quote taken form BurkeMead article)
