I have just bought tickets to Roger Waters on Viagogo. It is a scam ! Be careful everybody. I feel like such a sucker. Another lesson in the school of life.

It's been all over the news for the last month or so and has popped up a far bit over the last year or 2.

 

That mob is dodgier than a dodgy thing.

I may get the tickets but I"m not sure. I bought the tickets for $180 but when they came through on my card they were $240 They put fees on after you click the buy button. They say they are seats in acertain area but when you get the notification there is no allocated seats. Now that I have read about them they are basically scalpers. I won't be issued with the tickets until 2 days before the concert so who knows ? There's a first for everything. This is the first time I've been suckered.

You may not either, or the tickets may not even be genuine. There has been so much bad news about this outfit. From charging huge sums to tickets not arriving and Seats not existing and people turning up to find the tickets are not valid.
I would go to your Bank or Credit Card company and ask if they can reverse the charges as the amount was more than you had expected. Get the money back if you can.
