The Ticketzone farce continued on Friday with yet more supporters becoming frustrated at not getting adequate answers following the fraudulent transactions on their credit and debit cards after making purchases for League One Playoff Final tickets.
Beesotted have spoken to several people in the ticketing arena and, as it is our god forsaken duty to only deal with pertinent fan issues, will comment further after the weekend with some (not rocket science) suggestions.
With the playoffs less than 36 hours away, the focus is justifiably on the game on Sunday, but it’s surprising (and more than a little bit frustrating if you’ve been forced to cancel your cards ahead of a weekend when you’re going to NEED them) that no one seems to be concentrating fully on the issue in hand or hiding behind ‘man in the middle’ excuses.
At this moment in time, as long as your bank account hasn’t been totally drained, we suggest you forget TicketZone for now, cut up your card (every single person who purchased through Ticket Zone should cut their card up if the current rumours are true) and enjoy the events of the weekend.
Nothing will be solved today that can’t get rectified on Monday. Its a terrible thing that has happened, granted, and there is nothing worse than shouting in the wind when no one is listening… But the positive thing is, in principal, your bank should cover you for fraudulent activity on your card.
Whatever the outcome, TicketZone will surely be finished in football after this.
Beesotted will be talking about this issue, as well as the all important match, on BBC Radio London 94.9 Saturday evening at 6:30pm.
