Olympic tickets – warning from Met Police

Police are warning the public of advertisements that have appeared in national and international media advertising tickets for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The advertisements just feature a mobile phone number or email address to contact. Detective Superintendent Nick Downing from Operation Podium said, “Please do not attempt to buy tickets from adverts such as these as you risk paying over the odds for tickets that may not exist and your personal details may be stolen and used in other crimes. The safest way to buy tickets for the Olympic and Paralympic Games is from the London 2012 website.” For full crime prevention advice on safe ways to buy your ticket for the London 2012 Games, visit the MPS Operation Podium website at www.
