#lookfortheSTAR campaign set up to protect ticket buyers

News: 24th November 2015 by Louise Dodgson under Finance, Law & Music Business, Live

It has been reported that during a 6 month period this year music and sports fans have been scammed by approximately £1.3 million from ticket fraud. With Prince delaying his ticket sales for his forthcoming dates due to issues with touts, illegal ticket scams seems to be a growing problem.

The Society of Ticket Agents & Retailers has now launched a campaign to encourage awareness of their kitemark called #lookfortheSTAR The kitemark is a sign that an online ticketing company is a member of The STAR and therefore adheres to their code of conduct.
